Default Looking for a new plinker with a bull barell

Hey guys right now I have a ss rosi pump .22 its a fun little gun and actually very accurate. But I am wanting to get a new .22 I have had this one since I can remeber. I am wanting something low in price (hopefully under 300) preferably semi auto but a bolt would be fine with a bull barrel. I have found a couplethat I like but figure I better ask for opions before I pull the trigger on something. I like the winchester wildcat and the savage mark ll with a target barrel. Any others I should take a look at? Thanks

My recommendation is a Savage Arms Mark II BVT with the AccuTrigger. Best rifle for the price in my eyes. Yes you can get a Ruger 10/22 and put hundreds of dollars into custom parts and work. But I literally put tacs in the backer-board for targets with my stock Savage 93R17. For a factory rimfire rifle, its hard to beat a Savage. My two cents.

Theres not much aftermarket parts for the Mark II. Mainly scopes and stocks, but I love the thumbhole stock on mine. If your looking for aftermarket down the line, then the Ruger 10/22 probably has the most to choose from.

Yeah I checked out the thumbhole stocks, very slick looking stocks. i am not planning on going crazy with it. I will probly just end up put one of the thumb hole stocks on it. I just want the option of being able to change it up a bit. Well now that I have the gun narrowed down what is the used price roughly on theses? I found the standard one with the 21" heavy target barell for $241. I probly will end up just buying new cause they are so cheap..

Ya, you can get them pretty cheap. I sometimes use GunBroker.com Online Gun Auction to check what new/used guns are going for.

Patience is important when purchasing firearms. Sometimes you just need to wait for the right deal to come along. You KNOW if you buy it now for $300, your going to see it at that gun show for $240. I had to learn the hard way that a gun is not something you buy on impulse, it never works out well.
