Just go get the MP15-22 totally different gun than the 10/22, not saying its better just something different to have, I'm thinking of getting a 10/22 can't decide if I should get the break down version or not local Dicks has both any comments welcomed.

I highly suggest the takedown version its one of my favorite guns i own. In the bag it come with i can fit 2000 rounds a small cleaning kit a pistol and some spare mags and the bag will also accommodate a scope still on the reciever as long as its under 10.5 inches i love my takedown best package bugout kit for me the bag also doubles as a shooters rest

Check out the Remington 512 Sports Master. I don't think they've been made since the 60's, so you'll probably have to search pawn shops. They are well south of $500, usually in the $200-$300 range depending on condition from what I've seen.

It's a very robust design and was built for the long haul. It has a crisp trigger and is meant to be run hard. It's fed by a tubular magazine that holds 14 rounds of .22lr. It will also feed shorts and longs. It's accurate and IMO it's a looker with the blued finish and walnut stock.

They just don't make them like this anymore. My father carried one on a tractor and horseback in Central Florida from the age of 10 to about 18, mainly for vipers who would obviously kill cattle. Almost a decade of hard use in all the heat and humidity, not including all the years since then that it has been used for fun instead of work and she still shoots true. The 50's and 60's Remington 500 series rifles are absolute workhorses.

Bolt - I have not shot one, but have heard and read nothing but good reviews on the CZ 455 series.

Wow, thanks for taking the time for the great info, so I should stay away from something new?, ok I'm in no rush will send pics before I purchase if I can find one, I'm in NJ not many gun shops but Pennsylvania is only 15 minutes might have better luck there in gun friendly state and search the Internet at that price I can invest in a good scope! Thanks again.

I Saw one @ Big 5 today with an OD Green synthetic stock, optic from TruGlo, and 3 10rd mags,. And I'm sure CDNN makes or sells hi caps for it since they do for everything else...

No prob JRF! I personally prefer the older .22s bc they are built better(for the most part) and the price is right. Most pawn shop/LGS workers won't know what they are looking at in regards to the Remington 500 series, some will of course, but most won't. Sometimes you can pick these up for $100-$150. They really are one of the best values out there currently IMO.

I know the 512 is the bolt gun, IIRC the 511 was a single shot and the 510 was a mag fed semi-auto. C3 please correct me if I am mistaken.
