Default Springer vs PCP

Aside from the benefit of not having to pump each shot, are PCPs more accurate than spring guns? I'm looking to upgrade from my 853 and considering moving to the 887 or T200. Any advice on which would be the better move and the differences between the springers and PCPs are would be greatly appreciated. Still a newbie to the air rifles, although I did do well in my first ACES postal match this quarter!

Default None are springers

None of the guns you've mentioned are springers. The 853 is an SSP (Single Stroke Pneumatic), the T200 is a PCP (pre charged Pneumatic) and the 887 is a CO2 gun.

They are all capable of shooting 10's. The T200 and 887 remove the cocking motion and effort which can be significant in position, especially prone. The trade off is that they require additional equipment and expense to fill (High Pressure pump, or Scuba tank and adapters or CO2 tank and adapters).
