What is a reasonable price?

Is a $250 Savage reasonable or a $300-$400 CZ resonable? Or is a $1900 Cooper reasonable?

Reasonable is a rather ambiguous term.

You need to stop making sense!
I have an old JC Higgins, same as a Marlin 100 I beleive. I use to shoot crows out of trees at 100+ yards. Middle rifle. Less then $75.00 at shops now. My dad paid $25.00 for it in 1972 at a flee market.

Single shot, manual cock.

Yep what he said... I think CZ is probably the most bang for the buck when it comes to quality. Savage and Marlin do make some nice shooting guns for less money but you can really tell the difference in manufacturing when you hold them side by side.

The Ruger 77/22 is a very well made rifle but they do not tend to be very accurate guns from the examples I've owned. I cured the last one by putting a Shillen barrel on it and it's a tackdriver now but that is a $250 upgrade to a gun that is not cheap to start with.

Some of the most accurate .22 bolt guns I own are old (1950's) Mossbergs but the prices on those are starting to really creep up.

thanks,

take the wildcat in and have it looked at. That's an extremily acurate .22. Especially compared to your auto loaders. It should produce 1/2 inch groups at 50 yds right out of the box.
