Thinking about buying a Steoeger X50 .22 air gun for the evil red squirrels, Stoeger Arms X50 Breakbarrel Air Rifle Combo. Air rifles the 870 does the job but I want something a tad quieter, and 1500 fps with .22 alloy pellets (1350 tested) just wow!
I already have a Gamo hunter in .17 but killing the critters in the top of a 50' tree taxes the gun to it's max. What I have been reading on the reviews Gas piston is better but slower, the Gamo with the Gas piston reviews on the Pyramid site. I looked at one (X50) at Jays in MI and it had a good feel, and heft, but I think it will still have the TWANG BUZZ of my Gamo.
Any of you out there have any BTDT with this air gun??
