Default Choosing another rimfire

Well I got a bunch of money for my birthday and high school graduation and after I put a lot of it into savings I still have about $400 so I decided that I should get a new rifle. I'm looking at four different rifles. In order of cheapest to most expensive: Marlin M60, Marlin XT-22 (tube fed), Marlin M60 Stainless W/ Laminate stock, or a CZ 452/455. I will look into other suggestions. So which would you choose.

Cant say anything about the first three, but I sure do love my new CZ 455 22lr. Time to sell off my 10/22 and my browning buckmark.

Would not trade my Marlin 60, but if you have a .22lr get a .17hmr or .22wmr.
If it must be a .22lr get what you don't have. If you have a semi, get a bolt and vice versa.

or get a CZ 455 in 22lr, and then 130 dollars later, get another CZ barrel for it in 17hmr or 22wmr.

My CZ

I want either less corruption or more opportunity to participate in it.

Well, you're looking at bolts vs semi. Any reason why you would want one over the other, and what do you have now?

I also would throw the Marlin 795 in there, and pick up Tech-SIGHTs for it. Only down side to the 795 right now if finding magazines.

I have a Model 60 and a Marlin XT-22MR. The model 60 is great if you don't have a 22 LR. The XT-22MR has seen a lot of action since I got it. I can find 22 wmr ammo at a fair price even now with the shortage. It's nice to be able to shoot something 100 yards away without holding over the target. I have owned the Model 60 for 35 years, it has never needed repair. The rifling is still sharp after 100s of cleanings with cheap aluminum cleaning rods. I cannot estimate the number of rounds model 60 has fired.

If your looking for bolt 22lr I'd go cz all day long. Itll be one to pass on to your grandkids.

Well I stopped by my favorite LGS to "just look". Well that was a bad idea. I am the new owner of a Marlin M60. Just the base model. Got it for $250 out the door. Now I gotta wait 10 days to pick it up, dang Kalifornia.


Also here are the obligatory pics.
