Well, I guess I'll throw in my two cents worth here. I have owned many .22 rifles in my years, and I have had some real M.O.A guns. One thing I have learned through out my shooting career is that Higher price for a rifle dosent nessaceraly mean better accuracy. There are Marlins and Savage's out there right now that will shoot the tits off a mother flea. If you want a real accurate and fun gun to shoot, and don't mind paying a bit more for ammo, the Savage 93F in 17HMR is a great buy, and a very, very good rifle. Just my two cents.
