Marlin model 60 would be my choice.

My first .22 was a single shot lever action. My second rifle was a repeater lever action. Loved them both. My third rifle was a semiautomatic and I have no idea what brand it was, not a very memorable rifle. I do remember spending more time loading it, than I did shooting it.

My first was a Ithica 49 and my second was a Browning BL22 grade 2.

Thanks very much for all the great feedback guys. This is a great app/community. What are a few decent bolt action and a few decent repeaters around the 500$ range. If thats redicilous and more needs to be spent to get something worth getting then enlighten me please! LoL

but right now....no one can shot any 22, so i'd wait awhile myself....unless you come across a good deal. if you're LUCKY these days, you can find some 22 to OVERPAY for! i almost barfed when i saw them charging $10 for 50 rounds at a LGS here.
Thats not bad for .22 mag lol

If you are thinking 22LR rifle, there are very few people who could figure out any way to "bad-mouth" a Ruger 10-22. It is considered by so many as the ideal gun for many purposes.
Check around on-line - here and other places. The 10-22 is a very well respected gun.

Actually 500 is a high price for a 22 the ruger 10/22 is anywhere from $250 to $300 depending on the model. The henry lever actions are around $300. Marlins usually are around $200. If you are looking for an accurate bolt action look at the ruger mk series with the accu trigger.

I purchased a 22 last year and for me it came down to a choice between the Marlin Model 60 or a Ruger 10/22. They are both great guns but as I wanted something that was accurate out of the box and had no intentions of adding anything but a scope to it, I went with the Model 60.

I think the Model 60 is the best performer of the two out of the box, but if you want to be able to customize to your hearts content the 10/22 is the better choice.

The model 60 is a great .22. I pulled my dads out after not being shot or maintained for about 20 years. And it shot flawlessly. I was even shooting Remington out of it.

A lot of folks have mentioned the Marlin Model 60 -- does anyone know if that is still legal in NY once their new laws are in place? I know that a lot of gun laws exempt rimfire rifles with fixed tubular magazines from their capacity restrictions, but NY didn't even exempt law enforcement when they pushed this thing through, so who knows.

According to the information I read it did exempt 22 tube fed magazines. A local gun store would know for sure.
