I've got one in 22Magnum with laminate stock and what's called "All Weather" which makes it look like a satin stainless, with a Jard 1-1/2# trigger, and while it's a little heavy for a rimfire, to act like it's big centerfire brothers, which it was designed after, I find it to be very capable and nice to shoot. They do cost a bit more over most rimfires, but you get a better put together rifle with tighter tolerances. The magazines interchange with the 10/22 rifles also--depending on it either being the long rifle or magnum model. You will find that the older models, before 2006/7(?) the barrels were V-Blocked, so you could interchange with other longer/shorter/bull barrels, while newer actions, you got the threaded barrel which will require gunsmith tools to change out, and the threaded barrels I've heard are giving a little more accuracy. They also have some heavy triggers, but if you change it out, you'll find the overall rifle to be extremely smooth.
