I've read and read about options -- considering the T200, Challenger, Edge, the wood/ambi stock Anschutz 8001 / FWB 500 at CMP, and Anschutz 9015. Money is not an object to the extent that I don't like frustration (breaking parts, inaccuracy blamed on rifle) that might let me justify in my head spending $1200, but I'm also not interested in veering into the precision stocks and spending 2K. So I'm basically trying to weigh going to an entry-level precision vs sticking with a sporter.

It almost seems like there is little information / active-forum-posters about the precision rifles. So I don't see reports like "Anschutz 9015 bolt broke in 4 months", but I do see that reported now and then regarding the Crosman Challenger. Should I assume that the precision rifles don't break? What happens if they do break -- are they repairable with easy-to-find parts? Seems like another case of a limited user base might put me at a disadvantage compared to a Challenger.

Stumped here ...

A first tier ten meter air rifle will give you a lifetime of trouble free shooting satisfaction if properly used and maintained. The major components of the rifle will rarely give you any problems. Seals, o-rings, and springs are consumables that need to be replaced from time to time to keep the rifle in working condition. Parts are easy to find in the internet.

How about finding an old Walther LGR SSP. At one time it was a world-beater and is still WAY above the guns you're discussing. Repairs are usually confined to replacing a few O-rings and prices are low.
