Rifle help
 
Does anyone know of a reasonably priced rifle that shoots 22lrs and 22 magnums?

are you talking about a rifle that can shoot both? if so, none. two totally different chambers.

as far as reasonably priced there are several in 22lr and 22 WMR that would be fine. Savage, Marlin, Remington, ect.....

Those are not interchangeable calibers.

That being said, you can buy a CZ 455 and this model gives you the ability to change out the barrel and turn the gun from 22lr to 22 mag or to 17hmr. One gun that let's you change barrels to have three different calibers.

the Sako Quad rifle is another that is capable of being able to change the barrels on. 22lr, 22 Mag., 17 HMR and 17 Mach2.

downside is the Sako is pricey little rifle.

I know of a good 22LR and a good 22 mag..But I have yet to see some double bbl thing that will do both. and that is what you would need. Even the revos are not near as accurate with both rounds. THe cost of a decent rifle to shoot either of these rounds really negates the need to have some combo thing.

Another downside is that those things are next to impossible to find. Looked for one before I bought my CZ.

Your question has been answered and I can't add anymore.:)Cliff

yeah cattledog had the answer.
if you want round flexibility in a rifle (short, long, LR), a single shot bolt or a lever action can usually handle the 3 different rounds but none that I know of can go up to a magnum without a barrel or cylinder swap
