Reply To: What's a good rifle in the $200 ballpark?
Big box stores always have a much more limited selection than what is online, and often have inflated prices. For your price point, look at airgun depot or pyramyd air online, and check out the refurbished rifles. If they have a model 34, check it out. Otherwise, saving another $100 can score you one of the fine german rifles at Airguns of Arizona. I’m steering you this way because I have been where you are.. There is no joy on getting an inferior rifle for a little less money.
