I second the recommendation on the RWS Model 34. I have one in .22 cal
Break barrel spring piston rifles offer a consistent and accurate platform, however, be aware that the hyper velocity models that are rated to propel pellets above the speed of sound will crack like you're shooting a .22lr and could attract potentially unwarranted negative attention in your environment.
I have a Beeman .22 that was advertised to deliver 1100 fps. Actual chronographed velocities were closer to the 980 fps mark with the pellets I chose but it sounds like I'm shooting the powder propelled variety.
My RWS M34 is closer to 750 fps and is nice and subtle.
