I’ve got both a Marauder .22 and an at44 QE short, also in .22.
That said, I shoot .177 springers most of the time for backyard target practice and plinking.
For the sort of use you describe, either the Mrod or the AT44 would be good choices. Both are reasonably priced and within your budget even with a quality hand pump.
Both are backyard quiet. I prefer the appearance of the Mrod wood stock (with adjustable comb) much more than the AT44. The AT44 stock is narrow on the cheek rest and the stock simply feels cheap.
That said, I think the AT44 has a slight edge on the Mrod in accuracy, power and noise (less); and I prefer the slide versus the bolt. The AT44 comes with two magazines that are easier to load too.
If you do more target shooting than hunting, it may be better to go with a .177 over a .22.
Both of these PCPs provide a lot of features and performance relative to their cost.
Good luck choosing.
