Best 22 for the price.

What kind of price are we talking here?

I was pleasantly surprised with a Savage I picked up for the
kids. Accu-trigger, synthetic stock, 10 rd magazine fed. Nice
accurate little rifle for around $140.

Many times you can get an older mossberg 22 for a good price. With a little elbow grease the stock can be made to look really good. My dad has turned some $35 guns in to real lookers.

I have two old remmingtons one of which will turn in 1" 100 yards groups.

Agree on the older Mossbergs. Have a 44US that will outshoot most Winchester target rifles that sell for 4x more. You might also look around for a used Marlin 81 or 81DL. Great little bolt action. You will hear a lot about Marlin 60's, and Ruger 10-22s- but there are other better cheaper rifles to be had. Rarely does anyone WEAR OUT a 22.

Marlin makes a very solid series of .22's that are inexpensive yet reliable. I like finding them in pawnshops & in local "Shopper" type papers :)

I'm rather fond of Calico .22's of any pedigree...folks tend to put them back together wrong so I buy 'em for a song and re-assemble them for my own fun :) Ain't nothin like 100 rounds of .22lr's fired off as fast as you can speedbump 'em :)

Bill, you were dead on target and so was the Savage. Bought a MKll F and I believe it is the best buy for the money.

I like the little Steven Favorite . I bought 2 for me 2 grand sons to start out with.

I started my hunting career with a Stevens Favorite when I was seven years old. That would have been '56. That little rifle made it's way out of the family while I was in the service in the late 60's. I'd give big buck$ to get it back if I could find it. I did try for several years, never could track it down. :(

You should try the Stevens favorite in 22mag. I go by price. Since the 22lr can be picked up for $11 for 500 I like to use a semi auto but when 22mag is going for almost the same price for 50, a single shot makes sense. CD

The marlin bolt rifles are awfully hard to beat.
