i snagged a used one today for $220. seems like a great little gun. the stock isnt all that long but i can comfortably shoulder it and i'm 5'8". it seems to have the same LOP as my savage 24 and glenfield 60.

I would suggest a marlin 795, Academy had one the other day for 135. That way you have the out of the box accuracy with the clip style mag and still almost $100 less than a 10/22. Excellent rifle all around and perfect for what you want although I would suggest getting a larger stock.

Are 795 picky on the ammo. Are will it eat anything? I like the price of them. And i don't doubt there accuracy. I've shot 30 year old Model 60 with no problem.

the 60 and 795 are the same action, just different mag type.

Default avoid the 10/22

I would suggest you stay a mile away from the Ruger 10/22. Awful trigger and very inconsistant accuracy. I can never understand how they get such praise. Ok so there are loads of accessories and after market triggers but who wants to buy something that needs so much upgrading.

My advise is go for a Bolt action every time and first choice is a CZ with "set trigger" or a Ruger 77 all weather stainless. Use a 3-12X scope with a very fine reticle , .22 subsonics bullets and a silencer and you can shoot small critters discretely with head shots every time, out to about 75 yards. Trust me zeroing past that is a waste of time. Better to get just get used to your scope and remember the "hold over" required at various distances i.e. 100yards.

The .223 is a perfect choice for the small to middle sized critters and id strongly recommed a Remington 700 VSSF or TIKA (great trigger) but to be honest a .233 just wrecks Rabbits if you like eating them. Truth is i think you actually need two Rifles in both calibres cos anything else is a bit like trying to play Golf with only one type of club( not that i play golf). Best of luck with your choice and happy shooting Ken (Ireland)

If I wasn't planning on a bunch of upgrades I'd get a Marlin 60 or the Remington you looked at if you're looking at semi-auto rimfires. Sure you can upgrade your Ruger to no end but it ain't free. In fact it gets very expensive. A 60 doesn't need to be upgraded.

As far as a .223 goes, don't scrimp on the price of the rifle. The Axis is a nice rifle but you can't take the Savage upgrade path with it. With a Stevens 200 you can swap triggers, barrels etc. just like building a 10/22 only the difference is the price of the gun isn't a lot higher and you don't get a better shooter by going cheaper (like getting the 60 instead of the Ruger). And with a .223 the price of the rifle is a small part of what it will cost you to shoot it. I spend about $70 every time I go shooting my Savage 12 .223. I love it but I'm not happy if I can't shoot really well with it. I don't see the point otherwise.
