    I would consider a used CZ 634 and it wont brake the bank. I believe you can still find one new for $159. Getting harder to find new.

    Check here if interested, says available, $158.00

    Indeed.  Once you have them under control!

    I especially like how well these work on rattlers:

    A PCP is a big buy-in for your first air rifle.  I think an HW50 is still perfect for what you’ll be doing.  At 7-12 ft distance I think a .177 HW30 is plenty unless rattle snakes are tougher than I thought.  

    pistolero… I agree on the HW50!

    This wouldn't be my first air rifle, though.  I've had a Brocock Bantam .25, Red Wolf .22, and now have a Red Wolf .22HP.  I'm already set up with a pair of Omega Air cylinders for refilling PCP rifles.  It's just that my RW .22HP is not set up to shoot at any distance less than about 25' or so.  And it is not very maneuverable (quite long and quite heavy).  That's why I was considering a smaller, lighter springer with iron sights.

    After considering all the suggestions and various options, I think I may go another direction for the once-a-year rattler problem rather than buy a springer just for that purpose.

    In looking at the Weihrauch models, though, I think I would really enjoy an HW30 or an HW50… they look like they would be quite accurate for closer range paper punching, a lot of fun to plink with, and all around VERY handy. For not a lot of money!  I think that an HW30S Deluxe in .177 will come home with me from AoA one of these days.  Winner, winner… chicken dinner, in my view.

    Snakes aren’t that hard to kill, shot ‘em dead with pistols doing 3-4 fpme. I think a light springer rifle will be just fine.

    Even a lightly charged pumper…

    I agree, I think a 6 fpe .177 would be more than enough to dispatch a snake.
