you could possibly find a CZ right around $400 if you look hard. They are excellent rifles. The Marlin and Savages are good too, just not in the same class. Older Marlins can be bargains if you found a used one. My first rifle was a JC Higgins (rebranded Marlin) It's probably older than I am, but it is a sweet shooter. Not too much goes wrong with a well made .22 bolt gun, but I did have to put a new ejector in it finally. Not bad for a 40+ year old gun.

Rossi makes a single shot combination gun. For one purchase you can have a .22lr, .410 shotgun and a .270 rifle. They come with a barrel for each that changes rapidly.

I just watched some video reviews online and sifted through the CZ website, they do appear to be nice guns. According to their website, the 455 seems to be around the $450-500 mark. Adding an extra $100 onto my budget wouldn't bother me if I'm getting a good quality product that I can utilize without issue over the rest of my life.

So far, I'm seeing a significant trend here towards the Savage Mark II, as well as the CZ 455. I would still like to hear about the Marlin XT though.

I'm a 10/22 fan myself for about $250 buy a basic blued carbine spend $50 on two 25 round ruger bx mags and still have some cash for a decent 3-9x40 scope and plenty of ammo.
Pluss the 10/22 is just about the easiest and most popular rifle to pimp out.(lots of parts) check out utube for custom ideas in any price range.
Around christmas you should be able to get the rifle on sale at one of the big stores. Give yourself the christmas gift you always wanted...

I would tend to go with a bolt gun as they are more versatile. CZ is suppose to be the most accurate but I wouldn't dismiss the Savage.

FWIW, I have two auto-loaders in .22 and a Marlin lever 39. Haven't shot the autos in years. They're just not as much fun, but that is personal taste.

And this one for 379.99

So they are cheaper than their websight suggests

I picked up a TOZ 78 bolt action .22 a week ago.
TOZ is a russian brand, that makes pretty nice rifles, for small money.

The TOZ78 is sold in the US as the Winchester Wildcat.

I took it to the range last sunday, after I picked it up, and fired a few rounds.
It seems pretty accurate and reliable.

There a several different versions on the market. Mine has a drum rear sight, where you can change the distance just by rotating the rear sight and get new sight blade in a different hight. You can adjust it for 25m, 50m 75m and 100m distance.
The front sight is set up like a screw, so you can change the elevation and the windage.

Here a link to some pics I took of my TOZ 78 (never mind the CZ75)

You will eventually end up with both a semi and a bolt just got to figure out which one to buy first lots of good recommendations 10/22 is great lots of add on options sky's the limit bolt guns savage for buget get more for your money as far as trigger and operation and accuracy. CZ is up the food chain for bolt guns in looks and operation imop Go to the local range if possible and check out some of the guns other people shoot ask questions and may be shoot there gun shooters love to share I have had lots of different people shoot my fire arms.

I have to agree with that. Both bolt and semi have there place. You just need to figure out what is right for you. Check out ranges in your area, many will rent you guns to try out
. Also clubs usually have a few members who will take you to the range ig you express an interest in their paticular baby. Just be polite and offer to buy some ammo snd you can get a hands on education on a paticular firarm.

Spend what you will but you can pick up an older Remington, Winchester, Stevens, Springfield, Savage Etal for $75-100 that will shoot as good as you can. I like to find them Kind of nasty looking (no rust) and clean them up. My most accurate 22 is A Remy 511 that I paid $25 for last year. I haven't had a semi auto I liked well enough to keep.
