I've look at some of the Wally World air rifles. They look decent enough for the price and most of them include the scope. Hopefully, they used the shock resist scopes. Laughing

Some of these guns make about as much noise as a 22 short rimfire. So, hard to say if it will be a quiet survival gun or not.

My G1 came from Walmart. The price was right, but it took a lot of work to get it where I wanted it to be.

There are many, many alternatives on the internet. What price range are you looking at?

Be specific about which Wal-Mart unit you are talking about. All Wal-Mart products are re-labelled something else. If you tell us which, we could perhaps give you a better idea of it's specific quality/value.

Sorry, didnt know thhat wallyworld carried more than one brand or size of air rifles..Im air rifle ignorant..havent owned one in 35 yrs and was just thinking about adding one to my actual rifles..I will have to ck them out closer next time I go there to get more info on them..Slavias post that it took a lot to get it to perform the way he wanted sort of answers my question tho..Ive looked at various ones online and they looked impressive until I think of the 22 rifle they do have there at walmarts thats 60% cheaper than some of the air rifles I did look at online..as far as price I was looking at ..had no set price ..didnt know that they could be that expensive to be honest with you and from I read in responses to this post they are or can be noisey also..maybe I should go with the 22 rifle..bottom line is I would want one to get game to eat ..squirrels..rabbits...maybe a possum..and that prob would require either a 22 rifle or a pretty expensive air rifle (Im thinking)....hate to buy a walmart rifle and then be disappointed with it...thanks anyways guys

Don't let Slavia discourage you- there is nothing critically wrong with the G1- he got one on clearance and then decided to customize it to death. He suffers from an affliction called "airgunitis" where he just can't leave well enough alone. Mr. Green

The G1, by the way, is NOT Wal-Mart specific, just one model they happen to carry as well.

Not true! I had decided to customize it to death before I bought it.

But Eric is right - I shot it most of the summer like it came out of the box. Good power, fair accuracy.

Which brings up another point - power. Many manufacturers will claim a certain velocity level of performance (say, 1000 FPS). This is with the lightest pellets available; "real world" (i.e., commonly available) pellets will be heavier and therefore slower (say 800 FPS). It doesn't make the gun bad, it's just misleading.

azurevirus:

Although selection may vary from region to region and store to store, WalMart is currently selling Crosman, Daisy and Beeman airguns. Crosman does package for WalMart the Crosman Quest with a lessor priced scope than they normally market as a Quest (rifle & scope) Combo. This lessor priced package is labeled Crosman Storm but it is still a model C1K77 rifle. Unlike some airguns, Crosman spare parts are relatively inexpensive and readily available through Crosman with a $4.00 flat shipping rate.

Also, probably go with the .22 air rifle. It is good for game and will shoot paper and cans when you want to too.

All I had for 29 years was a $40 Daisy Powerline 880 in .177. I wouldn't want it for a food getter...well, unless I was stuck in the wilderness with NO other alternative. Shocked

I was recently given a Crosman 140 in .22 (circa 1955). I had new seals put in and a valve and it is shaping up into a fine rifle. I see the benefits of the .22 cal simply due to the ballistics. So far, it's giving me 3/4" groups at 10 meters with iron sights.

Right now in my area, Walmart is offering an air rifle with two barrels, one of which is a .22. If it were me, I'd look in that direction. Just keep the .22 on there...if you switch back and forth with the barrels, you will have to sight your scope back in each time you change. But, perhaps for a survival gun, you won't want the scope.

I think it was around $129 or something like that.

But, the G1 looked decent too if you don't want

I suggust saving your time and getting a gun that you will love, and likely never have problems with.

Springers: Diana 34, Beeman RS series, all 3-4 guns are under $250, have wooden stocks (unless you want synthetic, the Diana and some Beeman have them), shoot well, and love to hunt.

Co2: Crosman 22xx series guns. Short, light, decently accurate, highly modifiable, powerful enough for small game.

With the Crosman guns you can pay $50-85 for the base gun, sets like the 2250xt have a stock, scope, and steel breech, the 2250xt also uses 88gram co2 tanks.

I do not suggust buying a gun from wally world unless it is a Crosman, or Remmington (which is made by Crosman). I do not list gamo because I do not support their products or some things they have done.

P.S. Welcome to the forum.

A Diana 34 in .22 should be enough for hunting small game. I've heard behaviour is better in .22, and you get about 700-750 fps I think.

WHICH IS ENOUGH!

Walmart carries low end, brand name air rifles like Gamo, Beeman, Daisy, and Crosman. All are priced under $150. Walmart is all about price, and so the least expensive, most popular airguns are going to be what they sell. Obviously the daisy bb guns will sell the most, but they realize that airgunning is gaining popularity and that even Walmart customers are willing to pay more for better airguns.

I got my gamo air shotgun there and I'm happy with it insofar as I got what I expected. Honestly, being from walmart itself doesn't make the item crap, but if you buy a crap item, regardless of where it's from then it is still just crap. Keep that in mind.
