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 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.
