Well not that I know of but here are a few for "A FEW DOLLARS MORE" yes, yes also the title of a great Clint Eastwood Movie.

1) EunJin Sumatra $419.00
2) Air Force Talon $459.95
3) Air Arms S-200 $495.00

Sometimes it is better to spend just a little more and get something that will last a very long time. I do not know anything about any of these guns accept what I have read posters post about them but they all seem to be well worth the money.

Don't forget the scope and mounts ,the fill aparatus(pump,scuba,carbon fiber ,what have you) Then a case to keep it protected, cleaning supplies, pellets ,targets, endless hours shooting and reading post on this forum and asking a multitude of questions,and so on ,and so on , and so on..........like has been said befor WELCOME TO THE ADDICTION...hehee .
But seriously research your rifle really well befor purchasing, like fill pressure and such. I got my BSA and then found out it filled at 3,350 psi and I would have to eaither pump it up ($250) or get a carbon fiber tank ($600) I got lucky and found a guy selling a carbon fiber tank for $300, but I had already bought the pump, so I got the tank and sold the pump for $200. Well I think I'm rambling now , have fun.

Call Mac1 and get a B50/B51.

Mountain Air sells B51s too http://mountainaircustomairguns.com/model_14.htm

From what I understand both companies completely disassemble, inspect, lube.

I got my BSA sportsman HV from sportsmans wharehouse for $579 and its basically a BSA Hornet multi shot, which sells for $800+.They just gave it a new name for the store. Check out the hornet at airguns of arizona and you can save a bunch of money getting one from sportsmans.You can call AofA and they will fill you in on them ,they sell them to sportsmans.

Well, if you do what I did and use a 10% off coupon code my .22 Sumatra 2500 Carbine came in at $360. Fill adaptor is included(get extras and extra O rings)buy a used scuba tank (locally if possible--to save on shipping)and a Kvalve(fill station)off of Ebay and you will save a lot over purchasing 'new' accessories'.

I love mine and have no regrets!

Why not go for a Techstar from BSA...?

Crosman Challenger .177 - Leupold 3-9/33 EFR
BSA Ultra .22 - Tasco Varmint I 2.5-10/42 Ao
FX Airguns Elite .25 - Bushnell Legend 5-15/42 Ao

I just recieved a BAM B-51 from BESTAIRGUNS...the B50 is the same gun with a more traditional stock. BTW it is a copy of a Daystate Harrier

if you are a tinkerer you can get one there and tweak it yourself...otherwise a Mac1 one will come in to you tuned...no experience with Mountain air...heard good things though.

edit: here is a great link on tweaking it for more power or more shots...or making it an adjustable power gun...or quieting the ping of the air tube...or .........................................

Look at the Sumatra Carbine $419.00 Killer listed. I will most likey end up owning one of these rifles myself in 25cal down the road. I have heard alot of good things about them the only bad is they are said to be alittle loud.
