Nice suggestions, pretty impressed by the CZ, the Henry looks good too. Just a thought but do they make any AR Platforms in .22WMR? That would be pretty neat. I did find a Savage locally that was really nice, the price was good too at about 279.99. Don't know much about Savage quality but it was a very sturdy bolt action with an adjustable trigger pull 2-5 lbs. Once again thanks for the feedback.

I wish! That would be the ultimate prairie dog killer! I don't believe anyone makes one yet.

The closest thing to a 22magnum AR platform would be the S&W Tactical 22LR. They unfortunately don't make a magnum model at this time. HOWEVER, if you want something a little more powerful, have you looked at, or handled a "new" Hi-Point Tactical Carbine in 9mm. I have one and those things are a hoot, and 9mm isn't much more expensive than 22magnum shells.
Those Savage rifles are cost efficient, but highly accurate. I have a Savage Axis, but in 22LR with a Bushnell Banner 4-16x40AO, lighted reticle and with fast focus eye and it's one of my squirrel/groundhog getters.

If you want a single shot in-expensive, accurate rifle look at the H&R 's . That is, if you can do it in one shot. You can also get accessory barrels in other calibers- the rim fires use one receiver, 22, 22 mag, 17 and the centerfires use another. H&R Sportster Rifles

Savages are good guns but new marlins do the sane w the trigger and they have better warranties. Plus they are usually about the same price.

Marlinman, not to get far off the subject, but where is the Marlin 22lr, 22wmr and 17hmr now made? I know Remington has control/makes the centerfires and they've really messed them up. How about the rimfire's? Is the fit/finish quality top notch like they used to be?

Remington has NOTHING to do with marlins guns. And they are made in NC. The fit and finish is great. The center fires are awesomely made now.

I found an old Marlin model 783 bolt action that I really like. I see them on gunbroker all the time. The newer Marlins and Savages are some pretty good ones and probably a lot easier to come by.

I'm sorry Marlinman, BUT Freedom Group bought out Remington, Marlin, Bushmaster and probably other gun manufacturers. Marlin, at least the Lever Actions, went to Illion, Ny in 2008 to the Remington plant from the New Haven plant which closed it's doors in 2010, and last I knew anything above a 22 rimfire(not 22 hornet) is a centerfire. Remington DOES own(round about way) and have control of all models of Marlin which was given to them by the Freedom Group. Remington is now putting THEIR BARREL STAMP on Marlins, or at least the lever action centerfires. You're right on some account, which I learned just recently, is that some of the rifles are built in Kentucky or N.C. plant(don't know which State), but I don't know which models, be they, the rimfire models or also some of the bolt action centerfires. I don't own a bolt action or rimfire Marlin, which was why I was asking about their quality as I like Marlin and hope to get one of the new models in the future.
