I was going to HIGHLY recommend the Quest 800x with a GRT_III trigger and a Turbo Tune by Gene, ... but that's over $200.00. How about the 800x with just the GRT-III, - that would be around $147. It comes with an "ok" scope, but with the loose change you could pick up a better  one.

I have several of the AR1000 rifles very good guns after cleaned and lubed, they do settle down and get quite after that the .22cal's are very accurate. I've taken many crows and piegeon's with these rifles I have one right now that ^*^()(%*^$%^)()(&( is rebarreling to .20cal for me. It was a .177cal av's 1034fps wasn't as accurate as I wanted so a good platform to rebarrel so we'll see how it turns out.

Good choice! They sent me the same freebies. The targets are good (thin cardboard makes good pellet holes) but the trap and pellets are junk. The hat is cool though!

The "original idea" was a springer, preferably with a wood stock for under $200.00 - 800X suits that to a "T". - Add a GRT-III trigger, nice gun for the price.
