My Sheridan 2260 Co2 rifle will easily handle that and isn't very loud. Much quieter than either of my break barrel, spring piston guns and cheaper too. I suspect one of the QB78 Co2 rifles would also work fine and can be had for as little as 79.00 online.

If you want something with a magazine, but not a pcp, maybe look into one of the Gamo Swarm Gen2 lineup.

Forgot to mention there are repeater versions of the QB78 and you can get an aftermarket repeater breech for the 2260 if it's really important to you.

Why?

There are many pros to pcp and few cons.


My best kill to date...

Because it's another setup that I will need to make room for in my house/garage - more stuff to stack.

Do the CO2 cartridges hold their charge and not leak down if you throw the rifle in the corner for a couple of months?

Yes. I've left mine charged for months with no leakage. Just need to make sure you lube the end of the cartridge before inserting so it doesn't stick to the seal. I've killed a pile of rabbits and squirrels around the yard with it over the years.

The Marauder was a murderer, grackles, squirrel, rabbit, beaver, nutria, possum and coon.

Looking at a Maverick 30 also. Hoping it incorporates the Impact MK3 features when I'm ready. Think its 68.Whiskey that has taken the 30 out to 300 yards. YouTube 68. Whiskey that is , found them while looking up tuning info.


Never take life to seriously, after all ,no one gets out of it alive.

Beeman R9 .22 cal.

Works awesome in semi urban areas and smacks critters as large as these rock chucks with authority.

No magazine, but pellet pens work pretty slick or just put a few dozen pellets in a tick tack mint container.
