Default Quality accurate .22 rifle?

I'm looking for a good quality accurate .22 rifle that I can take to the range and just have fun with. The rifle/scope combo I currently have isn't that accurate. I would prefer a semi-auto, but it's not necessary. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Ruger 10/22 you did not mention a price, so get the stainess bull barrel target model.

The price would probably be around $500 give or take a hundred.

I picked up last March Ruger SR-22 for around $500. Love it, just like my S&W MP 15-22.

I agree on the 10/22. I have a Mueller 4.5-14x40 APV on mine, and the combination is less than $500.

Buy 5 pawnshop Marlin 60's (pre-2005 are best) for $500 and take the whole family!

Use CCI minimags or Blazer ammo for best results.

Or get 5 new Marlin 795's from any sporting goods store for $99-129,
then send in the $25 Marlin rebate on each one to bring it back to $500

Either way, lotsa fun

And they're pimpable...check these three out!
Ramline stock


Well P-90 stock


Muzzlelite Bullpup stock

I am a big fan of Marlins. Their bolt action large barrel guns are very accurate, fun to shoot, easy to clean and they look great (I have them in .22LR and .22WMR). The 10/22 is a great gun as well. If your into accessories, changing things up or customizing the 10/22 is hard to beat.....lots and lots of accessories.

I've found that although not as customizable as a 10-22, the Marlin 60 is usually more accurate out of the box. That being said, I am a Savage fan from way back. THEY are accurate.

i have a Marlin M60, early 1980's vintage i bought used, cleaned it up, put a Simmons scope on it, very accurate and fun to shoot. if you want a semi auto to customize and tinker on, get the Ruger 10/22, very good rifle. if looking for just take it out of the box and at most put a scope on it and go shooting, get the Marlin M60 or M795.
