Depends on what your going to do w it ? If competition, then spend the time hunting down a High Standard. Will have to spend over $1K to outshoot one.
Ruger MK I, II, III - are legendary for a reason and can be modified to Olympic Levels of accuracy. People routinely run them for years w/o cleaning & they eat anything. A little tricky to break down - only neg.
Buckmark - serious competition to Ruger and even have a neat shoulder stock model. Their owners are loyal and speak well of them.
I own the first two and wouldnt mind having the third, all are proven platforms. (Look at Midway's catalog - see how much space is devoted to support your choice.)
22s in general are notoriously finicky about ammo. Some eat everything, others only one brand - only issue is finding it. Highly reccomend a Low Maintenance weapon. If it won't run dirty, I won't buy it !
