I'm guessing you don't want to spend thousands of dollars on an Olympic quality air rifle, so a PCP is a good choice for a very accurate rifle, but there are setbacks. You need a tank to fill the gun with, and thats another couple hundred to add on. A springer is a lot cheaper and can still be accurate, and will do just fine against squirrels and the like. Air gun depot and pyramydair.com are good places to check. As for pellets, buy a few types that have good ratings and see what patterns best out of your gun. I would also reccomend a variable scope.

I don't know about being the most accurate, but my favorite is Benjamin pellet guns. I have two that I shoot often.

I just went and bought a $100 breakbarrel from Wally world. Crossman is the brand, and it has killed sooo many little critters (including squirrels). Came with a variable scope and hss superb accuracy.

I have an old Crossman that my Dad bought for me when I wasn't even ten yet. He got it for 20 bucks from some friends that likely had gotten it used. It is a no thrills gun with basic sights and is a single shot pump for power gun. It is really accurate. I have taken rabbits and pigions with it. I use Gammo ammo out of it. Not because accuracy was lacking but penetration was. I don't think you have to spend alot of money to get an accurate air gun. I was shooting my uncles, an old sheridan that he has had since he was a kid, a bit and was able to Knock lifesaver mints off of branches with it. Just shoot the thing alot and get to know it and an inexpensive one will serve you well.
