Default Gamo, Crosman or Hatsan

I am looking for an inexpensive .177 Nitro Piston rifle for quiet back yard pest shooting of squirrels. I am considering, in order:
- Gamo Raptor Whisper
- Crosman F4
- Hatsan 95

The Gamo is my first choice but that brand has a lot of bad press; the Hatsan is obviously the best quality but the wood stock makes it heavier which is an issue for my 74 year old carcass. The Crosman is available in factory refurbished for $70 which is a great deal on a $250 air rifle.

Would appreciate any comments from first hand experience.
In an emergency, always dial 1911.
