What is the best break barrel rifle based on your ownership?
I had a crosman, it broke within a month (crosman prowler .177). I need a new one to kill some pests (rats and those long ones).
I notice there is a brand called "artemis".... search on youtube. has anyone had any experience with this model?

If you're looking for what I consider to be the best value for taking small game and pests(rats included)
A bit more, but if you have a lot of rats
Gamo Swarm Maxxim - prefer in .22 caliber
$196 off Gunbroker - includes shipping
The Diana(RWS) 350 Magnum($349) is the least expensive air rifle that I include with the best in the world. I much prefer this one in .22 due to the power(25ft-lbs) there is a much better selection of 14-19gr pellets in .22 than in .177 and for accuracy's sake you're going to want to shoot a heavier pellet.
Added for "Artemis airguns"
Other than they are made in China. I don't know anything about them.
What I do know is, the next time anyone in China builds a good spring/gas piston air rifle, will be the first time. Your experience with the Crosman should have taught you that.
