Observed a dude punching paper with a CZ on the 100 yard line using iron sights earlier this spring. That dog was huntin!

That savage looks awesome! Post some pics of your target shooting for us in the future!

I have heard great things, amazing things in fact, about cz but I could never find one in my budget. I'll take a closer look at that basic model one more time, I might have missed something.

Default new bolt action rifle

It has been said already, either Savage or Marlin can't go wrong. Check them all out. Excellent rifles. You will be pleased!

So i am between the savage mark 2 f t Walmart for $167.99 or the marlin xt22r for $179.99 at academy. Any personal preference for either? Which one is best bang for the buck?

I vote for the Marlin. You will not be displeased with it. There really is something to the micro grooved rifling. I cant tell you exactly what it is but marlin 22's are accurate and fun to shoot.

If I could go back to when I was 22 years old, And still know what I know now, I'd save up another $100.00 bucks and get a CZ 452. Wait a minute If I went back that far In time there wouldn't be any CZ's to get. Now my heads starting to hurt. Oh well I hope you get my point.

My apologies. I suppose my post wasn't as helpful as it could have been. For what it's worth, I find the Marlin rifles to be high quality and the Model 25 (.22 LR) to be very user friendly. About the only thing I could find to complain about would be that it's feed via a magazine clip. I prefer tube magazines because they just seem more reliable, IMO. With odd sized ammo, you could possibly have a FTF with the Marlin 25 magazine--though I never have! Otherwise, it's a great rifle and just as accurate as heck.

I'm not sure if they're still manufactured. I kind of doubt it but I don't know for sure. Not sure on the current price either.

Lol, I definitely get it. It's just that it turns out to be more than $100 I have to save. As it is it's hard to find a local store with a cz, and when you do after incorporating taxes the true difference is closer to $175.

I agree with you on the tube fed. My brothers golden boy is tube fed and the gun feels much more natural than a clip, not to mention the extra ammo you can load on a tube. But so far no store I've called had the tube fed, literally only the xt-22r in synthetic stock is available in like 10 stores I called. Academy has it cheapest at 179.99.
