RWS Model 34 is a 14 FPE rifle in .177, which I would recommend at that power level because you have a flatter trajectory. If you are going with a .22 and want to have the same sort of trajectory you get with a .177 you need to look at 18 to 20 FPE. I have a Model 36 which is just a 34 in a fancy stock with a bit longer barrel. They are dead nutz accurate out of the box with the right pellet and will stone squirels and ground hogs out to 35 or 40 yards if you do your part. The rifle is just a joy to shoot and one you won’t mind carrying all day long in the woods.
