    Air Rifle (up to $250)

    Hello - I'm looking for an inexpensive air rifle suitable for plinking and maybe a rabbit up close occasionally (like when one gets in the wife's vege garden and I get it in the neck). Got to have a decent trigger. but condition otherwise is of no account as long as its functional.

    Hey thanks for the offers of powerful guns but I would value a good trigger over power, and I have a few scopes spare - I'm hopeful of finding a Diana or the like, old and maybe crusty but good bones . . . .

    I could possibly do a brand new Baikal 512M in 177 for $275, I can chuck in courier as well as possibly a packet of pellets. Good for 750FPS or so. Normally a bit light for rabbits compared to the 1000fps ones but for what you describe, it should work better than well.

    Still in the box and warranty included.

    Did GC not offer air rifles for $99 on that supposedly insensitive billboard?
    (My gratitude to hysterical MSM for drawing the ad to my attention, quite a good deal, David Tipple).
    Bad choices kill.
    Feeling lucky today?

    There's a Weihrauch HW45 pistol on TM. They're pretty mint and they'd drop a rabbit with a well placed shot.

    Not a rifle though, and a bit over $250.00. I regret selling mine.
