i would recomend either a marlin mod 60 or remington 597 both very very fine rifles. 597s have a great advantage over the model 60 as it has a magazine which prvides faster reloads but u lose five rounds over the tube fed marlin. but if your not doing any hunting with it that wont have any efect on your decision

Looking at it from design/engineering/gunsmith point of view-I CANNOT imagine ANYONE reccomending either the model 60 OR the 597 over the ruger 10/22! If you only knew how many of these I get in for repair,and interior design,you would change your mind in a hurry! Go for the ruger 10/22 if you want a semiauto. If you want a lever,the browning BL22 or the marlin model 39A is the ones to choose from. I don't care how smooth the henrys are,the reciever is still made of zinc(pot metal),with a steel or brass reciever cover-hardly meant to last a lifetime of heavy shooting.

I have a 597 and well I am looking for a new .22 in a few months.... Its a nice platform if you want to make a tac .22 (I have a buddy that did) but if you dont watch for ejecting sheels you will have to clear jams preety often....

Haven't shot any of the others but I own a 10/22. Very fun gun to shoot and modify.
