Under $300 how about under $200

You can pick up a Mossberg M44us for $175+shipping from the CMP. That m44 will shoot out shoot anything comming out of a factory today. Even the 10/2puke.

Haha Yea I know that all to well. I am alittle surprised that I cant find any on gun broker or in the local paper. I have my doubts about the gun show but we will see I guess. Do they offer bigger magazines for these guns(savage)?... The problem with that sight is you have to be eligable to join and I have never done any competition shooting and I am not 21 yet so no concealed weapons, but march 15 that all changes!

Wow. Is it really that accurate? If so, I'm getting one!

Oh you should go to the mossberg forum over at Rimfirecentral.com and see some of the targets these guys are posting.

I have a tube feed model 46(b)b that my dad gave me. that is crazy accurate. May not look like much but old mossbergs are great shooters. Plus you can pull them old stocks off them m44us mossbergs strip them and refinish them and you may have a AAA chunk of wood on it. Many of them show some great figure and after they are refinished glow like a perfect bum in the setting sun on the beach at Canebrakes house.

Mossberg 46BT update... - RimfireCentral.com Forums

If you're wanting a bull barrel and possibly to improve later, the Ruger 10/22 is the most reliable .22 semi-auto rifle of all time, and is the only sensible choice. I've built 10/22s that, even though they well exceeded 300$, would group 5 shots into less than 1/4" at 50 yards. In fact, both I, and some customers have won matches with 10/22s I've built.

Yea well 300 hundred is just what I am hoping to pay for the rifle initially. I would lke to build it up over time but for now I am just looking for something to replace my rossi. I think its between the ruger and the savage. It might just come down to what they have at the next gun show.

If you want something to dump money into then get a Ruger 10/twentypuke.

If you want a rifle that will shoot rings around a 10/22 then get a remington 513 t 521t or Mossberg m44us.

I've had my eye on a CZ452 Varmint. Heavy barrel available in 22lr, 22 mag, and 17hmr. I really like the feel of this rifle. It is adult sized and very solid. You might check it out at the local gun shop or the cz site.

good shooting

Marlin's eat Remington's for lunch. That's why Remington bought 'em out, so they could get the secret to their 16-groove barrels. Watch for Remington to suddenly come out with their own version of 'em. The only thing close to a Marlin for accuracy without putting extra money into it is a CZ.
