Besides Ruger 10/22, Best .22 Semi-Auto Rifles
 
I realize that the consensus is that the Ruger 10/22 is the best .22 rifle out there. I would like to purchase a .22 semi-auto rifle, but cannot find a Ruger 10/22, what would be your next 5 choices? In order from best to least best, please.

Marlin model 60 is what I own, my wife has a Mossberg 702, and I inherited a Winchester model 190, these are the only ones have experience with.
Top is my Winchester, bottom is the wife's Mossberg.

I really like my S&W M&P 15-22. Shoots great and is not picky about what I feed it.

Depending your how deep your pockets are..... here are my choices in order

Marlin 60, better out of the box than the Ruger(I have 8 marlins)
Kel Tec SU22, I cannot say enough about mine. But will cost you if you can find one. Eats all ammo....
S&W MP22, like the kel tec...
Winchester 190
Mossberg 702 Plinkster

My marlin 60 will shoot circles around my dad's 10/22 both rifles are stock other than some internal polishing, my Winchester 190 is pretty accurate as well and will eat anything you can feed it even under rapid fire action, hardly ever hiccups!

I'm not fond of the Ruger. I know everyone else seems to love it, but I've never cared for the Ruger brand honestly. To me (and this is just to me, a personal opinion and nothing more so no need to start any fires over it) I find Ruger to be a kind of a "middle class' weapon..... I realize that they are a well known, respected brand and don't disagree with it. But over the years seeing their offerings in all firearms, I've never been impressed.

I own a S&W MP15-22 (er my wife does anyway) It is a flat out wonderful rifle. Mount a cheap red dot and it has great accuracy. This is "hers."

I also currently have a .22 for sale in a collection I'm liquidating. It's a Remington 550-1. It shoots .22 short, long, and long rifle all in the same chamber. Gives you a practical advantage when ammo gets scarce like now, where no one can seem to find .22LR but .22Shorts are still in abundance. If you are interested let me know in a PM. I believe it holds 15 rounds. Here's a couple pictures

Next to the Ruger 10-22! I would like to have a S@W 15-22. A few of my friends have one and I love those little rifles. They are fun to shoot, very functional, as well as very accurate. You can also add accessories on them like their bigger brothers the AR-15s.:)

I just picked up a CZ 512 as I can't pry the 10/22 out of my sons hands, and wanted try something else in semi-auto. Have to say that I am happy with the purchase and so far with iron sights only it certainly out shoots me. Have put about 300 rounds through it of 4-5 cheap brands without any hiccups. I want to try some better ammo when it becomes available at non-centerfire prices again, but so far super happy with it out to 50 yards. Hope to get out and shoot some steel at 100+ in the next week or two.

Really easy to clean and take down. Nice weight to it and decent wood on it. Comfortable for a regular adult to shoot.

Just a little update. That Remington 550-1 I pictured above sold today for $350.
