Is the R-7 (HW30) the only mid power springer w/ a good trigger?

Like Slavia 631

Daisy 130 with updated Gold trigger

C1 but while very accurate and a consistent trigger it is a heavy pull

Mendoza Bronco I hear is good. More like low power though

Diana 25 or preferably 24 or 27

Lots more...

I took my RWS 320 a B26 and took 1/2 of the preload off the rifle it is now a very nice and I think a more accurate rifle with a milder or less of a recoil. mush nicer ( ps if It didn't work I have my old B26 spring so I could bring it back if I didn't like the way it worked but I will leave it it's much better, Howie

<p>Why buy a Gamo Big Cat for $100-$125 and add a $30 aftermarket trigger and $25 for new spring when you can pick up a good used condition Slavia 631  for about the same?  </p><p>I picked up my C1 for about $80.  Of course it looks ugly and I had to bring it back from death but it shoots as good as a new one.  Saved probably $150-$170 versus a safe queen.  </p><p>My advice is to look for a good used one from a reputable seller.  Lots of guys buy and trade.  Sell to get the next, etc.  I'd rather have a good Diana 34 for $125 than buy a new Quest or Gamo.  With the long barrel of a M34 its kinda like cocking a mid 700 fps rifle.  Only it will be doing low to mid 800 fps.  </p><p>Don't limit yourself to new only is my recomendation.</p>
