I am a fan of the .22 mag, especially the new ammo that is coming out, but I only have one and it's a pistol. I bought a Marlin .17 hmr a few years ago which is a great little cartridge, but every time I use it to get food, the folks in the deli section freak out.
Marlin 25MN, the grandpappy of the XT22M...trigger job, bipod, sling, scope, and pillar escutcheons...
what it does, for what little it cost...is what started my Marlin Madness...gotta luv finding sub-MOA for $85 + accessories
I'm not just Trigger Happy, I'm Trigger Ecstatic!!
a good 22 Magnum that might interest you would be the Marlin XT-22 bolt action in either a tube or box magazine option. synthetic, laminated or wood stocks, blued or stainless finishes, and even different types of barrels. priced pretty reasonable.
