If you want looks, take a look at the Volquartsen web site...the things they can do with barrels & receivers are Unreal!!
If you want inexpensive, yet precise enough for competition...
grab an older Marlin 880SQ or 2000L or 7000, all have heavy target barrels and are spot on for low bucks!
Want to get ugly out to 150-200 yards, make it a .22WMR...Marlin 982VS or XT22MVSR with heavy target barrels
