That's actually really surprising. I bought my girlfriends XT-22R on Dec 25 of 2011 and its been great. The actions smooth, magazine slips out easily, it's even accurate enough to hit gophers out to 100yards with regulatory.

I've looked at a few Norinco rifles every now and again but I always hear about out cheaply their put together and such. If I can find one for around what you paid, I might just pick it up.

I really like my 93R17 that I've got, thing is more accurate then I am, which isn't really to big of a surprise..... Out of curiosity, do they come in .22LR? Looking for something that 500+ rounds in one day won't make me want to cry.

If you want a semi, get a ruger 10/22...not sure what they run for but it can't be too much. If your looking for a bolt gun id go with the savage mark II

I've thought about getting a 10/22, but just about everyone has them. I'm also wanting a bolt action since not only are they more amusing to me, but the ammunition shortage is starting to work its way north of the border. I'd be less inclined to fire as fast as I can with a bolt action compared to a semiauto.

Very good points, I chew through ammo in my M60 pretty dang fast lol. I have heard only good things about the savage, never actually fired one though

Savage MK II FV. It has a heavy bull barrel, synthetic stock, accu trigger, the works. And it' only around $250. If I were you I would whip out another $50 and buy this gun. Great buy. Iv'e got one myself.

IIRC, the M93 is the 22lr version of that rifle Kaido.

If you dont mind looking around and buying used see if you can find an old remington 510, 511,512 ect. I love my 510 it is a single shot so you conserve more ammo.

My votes for the savage mk2. I love my mk2 tr (with a heavy barrel). Getting close to 5 in a dime at 100 yards. My gf has an older fvxp (with the wooden stock, sporter barrel) and it shoots well. The action smooths up after couple hundred rounds. Both of them prefer cci standard velocity.

I got my Marlin XT-22MR back two weeks ago. It shoots very well and the 22 mag is a smooth shooting cartridge. I like my 22 LR but it's really a joy to make shots at or over 100 yards without having to hold over the target. The XT-22MR has an adjustable trigger that is very crisp. The XT has a safety trigger similar to a glock. Grease the safety trigger, oil just doesn't smooth it out. Other than the safety trigger I had no issues with the new XT-22MR. Apparently the first Marlin I bought was an older model. The new one I received from Marlin has a nicer stock with palm swells on the pistol grip. I mounted a Simmons Eight Point 4x fixed power scope on the new Marlin. The Eight Point proved to be reliable while serving emergency duty on my shotgun.
