both calibers.I now have 22cal.A real powerhouse,and great accuracy as well.As long as you don`t have issues with the 48" lenght,you`ll be fine.It may not be the best starter springer,a little stiff to cock,but not bad.

I've had a magnum powered RWS and a medium powered RWS (52 and 34) and found the medium powered break barrel to suit me better for hunting. Lighter, easy to cock, smoother cycle, easier on scopes and still plenty of power to put down small game.

I'd have to recommend an R9/HW95 or an RWS 34 if you are on a budget. If you really need more power then an RWS 350 may fit, or an R1/HW80 if you want to spend more.

Umarex mount,that has droop comp built in,got it from AOA with the gun,and the Hawke Sport HD 3x9 scope.The mount was around $35,and the scope right @ $70.Although the scope ring caps have just 2 screws,I`ve had no scope movement,and the scope has done great for 2 yrs now.
I would still go with the R-9 if I could,handles so much better,and has plenty of power for squirrels&such.My 22 cal R-9 shoots CP`s @ 700fps,and the 350 around 830 fps.
Take your pick.I have a TX 200 HC,but due to the loading,I always pick a break barrel.

I have had dealings with both 177 and 22 RWS 350 (untuned). I really didnt like either but the 22 was the best of the two. The recoil on these beast are just that...very harsh! I did tune the 177 to be a pleasent shooter but once a guy does this you might as well go for the RWS 34. (if you are insestant on going RWS) Those rifles are long gone. A R9 in 177 and a RWS 34 in 22cal replaced them. I shoot more accurate with these two and are much better for me to carry in the field. I guess your question was taking small game wasnt it....Heck yea. The 350 will put em down hard! if you can manage to shoot it! (that recoil is mean!!)

for me anyway,is strong,but it`s not a metal to metal hit,more of a shove,and yes heavy,but dosen`t
bother me in the least,and dosen`t affect my shooting.I`ve shot 300 Rem Ultra Mags,now that might bother me.
The harshest airguns I`ve shot were the Hatsan Daisy Powerline 1000X,had 4 in a row break the plastic stocks!Your still gonna be more happy with the R-9!
