I saw that Rossi is offering the Circuit Judge in a .22 cal. now with .22L & .22 Mag. cylinders that you swop-out to your ammo preference.

Anyone here fired one?

Default est .22 rifle

It depends what action floats your boat.I like them all and have them all. I prefer the semi-automatic, and my go to gun is always the Marlin Model 60,even though I have 2 10 22's. I like the slimmer profile of the 60. I believe the Marlin 60's are more accurate out of the box as compared to the Rugers, which now collect dust. Cliff

Sig 522, accurate and 25 round mags. Kinda tacti-cool to if your into that.
Threaded barrel for a suppressor, I put one on mine and it's some quiet backyard shooting

Weatherby 22 semi. I tried a friends in the late 1970s and loved it. Just couldn't part with the cash for a 22 until 2 years ago I found one at a gun show for an excellent price. Accurate rifle. Try one and you will most likely want one. Ruger 10-22 is also a good rifle and can be modified, but I have an AR15 that I can and do modify.

Remington Nylon 66 ( I think that's the number) and Ruger 10-22.....both great 22 rifles.

The 10/22 is a fun rapid fire 22. So is the M&P 15-22. I have an M&P. it's fun to shoot. I also have a savage pre accutrigger. I love em both the savage is a tack driver. I also have the S&W 22A hand gun. It's all preference. U might want to shoot other people's before making a decision

I honestly dont think there are any bad 22 brands. Tell you the truth,
just call all your local pawn shops and gun stores and see what
is for sale used. Just get the best deal and you will have fun.
Understand this however, the 22 is simply not naturally an accurate
cartridge. But it will generally serve its purpose for plinking and
even hunting at relatively short ranges. To be real honest most
of the better guns shoot tennis ball size groups at 100 yards
with most ammo. Hey that is good enough for rabbits at 50 yards
and squirrels at 30 yards etc.

For me, it's the CZ 452-2E ZKM.

I had one and it got stolen.

So I bought a second one.

Bought my first one when I was young and ever had an experienced hunter look at the CZ and say "whatinhell you buy THAT for?" just got the approving nods and "they're good guns".

Now I'm one of the "old guys" who nods approvingly when some young guy shows off his shiny new CZ - the circle turns.

The 452's a bolt action, but they have a nice range of semi-autos that'd be to the same good quality.

I have had 5 Ruger 10/22s in my life time so far. Any Marlin 6o and their cousins will out shoot the Ruger guns hands down every time. Yea they do not have the after market accessories the Ruger can get. But I would rather have a accurate gun out of the box over accessories. Now I have two 22 rifles both are Marlin Model 80 Bolt actions and both are tack drivers. I gave up on the mediocre 10/22 accuracy. Sure they are accurate enough for plinking and some show good groups with the ammo they like but my experience with them is there are more accurate guns out there that will out shine them. The only Ruger 10/22 I ever had that was really accurate was the target model and it just was too heavy to be considered a field gun.

WHAT? nobody mentions a Ruger 77-22? I have one of those in SS and also a 10-22 in SS, the ltd edition longer barrel Wally used to sell. Remmy nylon always reminded me too much of a Daisy.
There are so many variations and potential mods of the 10-22, I have to agree w recommendation for it.
