The SIG S20 break barrel is likely the only one that's high quality enough to be worth pursuing for that power level.

I agree with the others. Went through a power phase of airgunning with 80s vintage springers and everything is SO much better not at highest power. You'll find that few of the "1000 fps" air rifles actually achieve it, even with ridiculously light pellets, much less 8 grain ones. The RWS/Diana 48 or 52 is one that does and are well made and accurate but VERY harsh with lighter pellets and pellets don't generally fly well at 1000 fps anyway. The SIG was designed for that level of power and may not be as harsh , but will still shoot best with the pellet weight it was designed for.
