Reply To: Best value based on these priorities?
With your budget, I’d suggest looking for any codes, coupons, specials, rebates, or holiday deals that you could take advantage of. Consider refurbished as well.
Also, enter into any giveaway’s or contests that you can find. I’ve got a giveaway going on my YouTube channel – Tomcat Airguns
There’s another one going on here at AGN for a Wildcat MKII.
I just recently saw the Pyramid Air is offering up to $100 rebate on select Benjamin/Crosman products.
I also think you’ll get the best bang for your buck by going for a package deal such as a Discovery or Marauder.
Of course, keep a close eye on the classifieds section.
It sounds like your at $400 max for the rifle only. Then, you’re already expecting to spend more afterwards on a filling system. Correct?
