Quite a few .22 & .17 rifles have minor mag issues, it usualy can be resolved by "tuning" the mag...
I. E. bending the feed lips a particular way for optimal results...
or a few other little magwell/mag fiddling tricks...
But I head straight to the Marlins when I want a rimfire...less expensive, but usually more precise.
I've got a Marlin 25MN (.22WMR) that shoots tighter groups than any rifle I've ever owned.
And I've owned a LOT of rifles.
It's my go-to Coyote rifle, my sweet spot is between 100-150 yards. No Yote survives that zone.
The Marlin 925M is the current version of the 25MN, with a second action screw
(which is the second mod one generally does, right after the trigger)
and the Marlin 982-VS is the Heavy-Barrel super-precision version.
