Aren't air rifles completely unrestricted? I know their suppressors are, but what about all the other stuff like length, rate of fire and caliber?
It's not legal to hunt with an air rifle in Pa. so you may want to check the legalities in whatever state you plan to hunt in.

Another forum? Nah, not needed,

But do not underestimate these.

I can kill any midsize game at 50 yrds , that a .22 lr can.
and ammo is REAL cheap.

Top to bottom:
Hatsan 86 Sniper .177 cal
Ruger Mark1 Pistol .177 cal
Ruger Air Magnum .22 cal
All break barrel and will shoot 3 shots in the same hole all day.



btw, I have hundreds of guns and these are part of them, and my go to varmint shooters. I can shoot 500 pellets all day for $6.00.

I got a cheap Crossman Phantom ($80) for critter control around the yard and was totally amazed with the accuracy. It shoots a 3/8 inch group at 50'. It is capable of 1200 fps with the correct pellets. A .177 will penetrate a 3/4 piece of wood. I would get the .22 if you plan on shooting anything larger than a rabbit. I have killed ground hogs with the .177 and they can be tough to kill, I've also had to shoot them 3 times to stop them.

It varies from model to model.

My Crosman 760 shoots .177 pellets, and also has a " reservoir"

for BBs.
