    It's true that most if not all air rifles are not up to what we judge by Wby standards...

    I have a very nice .20 caliber Beeman R1; which was made by Weirauch. I consider it on par as a subsonic .22, and use it mostly out back for target practice, as I can spend all the time silently around the home. It is around 1,000 fps, and a one-cock spring action. For the pesky woodchuck raiding the garden, I could probably use it, but mostly opt for subsonic .22 loads in a CZ452 varmint rifle.
    I have a good RWS 3-9 scope, and understand that the recoil generated in a spring action pellet rifle is pretty significant; so you really want a decent scope designed for the job. The R1 has a solid adult-sized stock, so one feels like you are shooting a full sized rifle. Accuracy is good and uniform, so I haven't seen the need to glass-bed the action, and free float the barrel; maybe Ed could do a "Bighorn custom job" on it...

    Best,
    Steven
