    I am going to do some testing with sub Sonics 22 ammo to see how loud the repot is out of my 28” green mountain barrel

    I second the Marauder .25 idea.  This is a quiet and solid rifle.  Get a 4-16x scope for shooting out to 80 yards, shoot JSB's and a hand pump or even one of the new cheap electrics might be doable.  You should be able to get a good used one for about $300 as the new ones are $400 or so (10% off at Pyramyd or 25% off at Crosman).  Knockdown power will be good, but for the bigger animals head shots would likely be a must.

    If the sub sonics don't group then that's a good way to go, should shoot about an inch or so at 70 or 80 yards.  Some say even better is possible with the green mountain lens.

    To this day I would still recommend the Benjamin Marauder 25cal. As mentioned above, the Green Mountain barrel that comes with the 25cal version will have critters taking dirt naps down range out to 100yds. To me, the report of a stock marauder still has a little snap out of box But if your target is beyond 50yds, the impact of the pellet will scare them, not the shot. Add a moderator later if you want the report to be quieter.  Also agree a hand pump would be the least expensive. Don’t recommend a pump for you, if you have back issues or in pain.  

    Listen to the pellets whizzing by and see if you hear the shots. Note, this is a stock Marauder 25cal.

    Hello,

    New to the forum. I have a squirrel / groundhog problem. I am looking for a super quiet air rifle for shots out to 80 yards. I have a Ruger 10/22 with a 28” barrel that is super quiet shooting CCI quiets but is not accurate after 40 yards. I need a tack driver that will kill hogs, squirrels and foxes at 80 yards but needs to be very quiet. I have a budget of $500. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Steve

    Unfortunately I also live in The Peoples Republik of New Jersey. There's been alot of good rifles suggested here but all are illegal in our socialist state. Not only can they not have an LDC or silencer, but they cannot have any type of sound moderation system. No internal sound moderation or barrel shroud. That would be a felony.  Really limits our choices. Plus for hunting,  cant be anything larger than .22 cal..  You don't want a problem with the state Gestapo here when it comes to firearms. You will regret it the rest of your life. My suggestion is to leave this state as soon as possible, and never look back. I have 5 more years till I can move to America.

      Not to mention that it is illegal to discharge a firearm (air guns are firearms in New Jersey) within 450' of an occupied dwelling.
