    there is no such place, one place might sell a rifle a for less then anyone else and another rifle  for more

    it is up to you to do the shopping for prices, there is no magic lowest price place

    and you know that

    shopping for air guns is like shopping for anything

    I agree with c_m_shooter. The classifeds will have the best deals by far. The challenge is knowing which are a great deal and which are not. Sellers will often include accessories with the gun that make the deal sweeter.

    I've seen some great deals in the classifieds.  Especially the Wildcats, the mrods, and a few impacts.  I'm really surprised the royals are holding there value.

    People mentioning classified. The thing about that is you can get scam. Is it worth saving a few bucks for the risk? For me if I'm spending $100 or less I would use the classified, so if I get scam I'm only off $100. But if it's like $1000-1500. I rather just pay a little extra and get from a retail like airgun depot, prymaid air, etc and know I'm not being scam. You don't know who is behind the posting. They could list something and you paid it and they dont shit it or ship you something different or damage item. Too much headache to try to save a few bucks imo. I'm not gonna pay $1500 to some dude I don't even know online and hope he doesn't scam me.

    Not saying it hasn't happened but it's never happened to me, if you pay by regular Paypal your protected with the buyer protection. I am willing to pay the few dollars more in PayPal fees to insure I get what I paid for. 

    As to the cheapest….. Buy cheap expect cheap,., ,.,., 

    There are online dealers who have never even seen a PCP air rifle who does nothing more than drop ship the gun 

    No customer service

    No knowledge of what they are selling

    No direct communication

    Need I go on

    Customer service costs money and is reflected back into the retail cost of what your buying 

    When I buy a bow I go to a proshop because I know that the guy behind the counter knows what he is talking about

    The vendors here on AGN…  also see the classified section.  Check references if buying used and send them a PM if you have questions.  

    Happy shopping!

    If you are diligent with your research, the Classifieds section here is a great place to start. Most retailers sell Used items, like new sometimes, at good discount from new.

    If you can get to an airgun show, there are usually great deals to be had.  You deal face to face with cash and some shows have a place to shoot air guns.  Also there will be an incredible variety to choose from and a bunch of airgun people to help you make your choice.

    To help you a bit more, it would be good to know several facts about the intended use of the airgun:

     

    How far will you be shooting?

    How loud or quiet does the gun need to be?

    What are you targeting: paper, small pests, larger pests? This impacts the caliber need that you might have.

    How much can you afford for the package of gun, scope, mounts, and pellets?

    Can you handle a 10lb rifle? Or, should you get a lighter one?

     

     

    Now, for my recommendation: I've bought four rifles initially to find the ONE that does it all. Now, all four of mine work; three better than the fourth. One is still too heavy; one is plagued by being more pellet picky, hold sensitive, and having a less-than-ideal trigger (guess what, it's my cheapest purchase, and I can kill pests with it out to 28 yards).

    So, if I got a redo–I'd call Mike Melick at Flying Dragon Air guns and either buy a $400 R9 or have him do a full tune on the Diana 34 clone there. The latter costs about $300 +/-.  

    Or, I'd wait for a great discount and buy new from PA or Airgun Depot. What to get? Well, that's your call.

     

    Have fun and be safe,

    First, welcome to the forum we are happy to have you.

    Lowest cost and best value may not always be the same thing. As Archie said, let us know a little about your budget and intended use and we can start to steer you in the right direction. As with many hobbies there is a huge difference from a casual interest and a dedicated enthusiast. Don't be swayed by folks who say you must spend thousands to have a gun worth shooting. Equally, buying something completely on the cheap may spoil what can be a great entry into a terrific way to have fun.

    It's all balance.

    I've had to keep a weather eye on the air gun supply sites for months, waiting for deals to pop up. Sales & closeouts have been good to me. Got the Striker 1000x .22 springer at Midway USA for $96. I got the Crosman GuideHawk NP .177UM for $70, a $250 rifle that came with a Centerpoint 3-9x32mildot scope from the same site. Brand new, limited addition from 2016. I got a Crosman 66AB Powermaster 6/86 from a member here for dirt cheap. VGC, and only needed a few missing parts. Got'em NOS from Mike Baker on here as well.

    Hatsan USA has a huge closeout on 177 guns and another 40% off with code 177c40.  Heavy but I feel they're decent guns
