Mossy 702 plinkster for first .22?
 
Hi all- so I borrowed my buddies .22 and took my 10 year old daughter shooting. It was a mossberg 702 plinkster. I had no complaints and the gun worked great, dead on target. Now she wants one. I've seen some online for around $130. Thoughts or suggestions on this or any other .22's in that price range. Thanks

We have the Mossburg AR 22 (way fun for kids and adults!) right around 250-300 and 25 rounds of good times! The ONLY problem we have had with ours (we bought used) is once in a while when rapid firing the mag will drop out. Haven't figured out a fix, and we are scared to send it back for a repair because it could take however long to get it back. 98% of the time works awesome!

Marlin 795 tends to be a bit more precise in the same price range...
not to mention way more accessories available...& 25-rd mags by two different MFR's...Champion & Pro-Mag

So is it a semi/AR 15 style?

And nah I don't want bolt action. Semi-auto only hehehe

Nope...although the option for pimping inexpensively is very open...just ask Defcon...lol

Only limited by your imagination when it comes to the 795 ;)

I got a marlin 795. My 9 year old daughter loves shooting it. I just bought her a cricket for herself for her birthday.

I have a 702 plinkster first gun my GF ever shot she loves it, what she doesn't know is our 1 year in next months and she's gettin it. But I like the little gun it's good shootin I haven't had any problems out of mine it shoots good with a scope on it. Honestly it makes a pretty nice first gun.
