Springers to me are just old school obsolete. Gas piston rifles are just as cheap as a springer. You can leave them cocked without worries about spring set, and they are easier on the scopes.
Gamo or Crosman, I prefer Crosman has much better spare parts availability

I like this one because it is cheap, light, very easy to cock, and has real nice adjustable sights. It has target power instead of hunting power. It is also the official SAR air rifle.

Do yourself a favor and buy an HW or an Air Arms product. They’re more expensive than the cheap junky spring guns, but the quality is such that you’ll never regret your purchase and will likely pass them down to your heirs.

I'm not sure what price point you are looking for, but here are a few good ones to look at: Diana 34, Beeman R7 or R9 (depending on size), Gamo Accu rifle, Walther LGU, Weihrauch HW50s, or HW30s (again depending on size). I really like my Weirauch HW30s, but I don't have a need for a more powerful rifle. I just plink around in my backyard for fun.

I hope this helps.

Like the others said, you can't go wrong with Beeman/HW or Diana's. My experience with Diana are older vintage. So that would be out your buying new, but from what I see and read their owners are quite happy. I've had a few Beeman my favorite is the R7(HW30s is the same rifle). I had one before and I sold it. Didn't take me long to realize that was a mistake and I bought another couple months later. Absolute joy to shoot endlessly.
Now, you don't want crazy powerful springers for new shooters. Number one if you go with a Beeman/HW or Diana its gonna be expensive. This alone will prevent people from even buying it. So those boxes are gonna be collecting dust for awhile. Number 2 they are much harder to shoot accurately. Hold sensitive, grip sensitive, some like to be rested some don't. They are generally heavier so need a rest. This is gonna get you a lot of unhappy customers. Number 3 they have spring twang and harsh shot cycle. Meaning they will need to be tuned.
I recommend dealing with Mike Melick at Flying Dragon Air Rifles. He stands behind his product has air rifles from weak to stronger, PCP to springers. He will fully service the rifles as well. For an extra cost that is well worth it. I recommend the lowly XS12 tuned buy him. You won't have a single issue.
