Suggestions on .22WMR
 
Thinking about adding some more .22's to the gun safe....specifically a new .22wmr :D What are your favorites? Looking at the Henry, Savage and Marlins.

Not to forget CZ and Browning.

I've got a Henry Golden Boy with the octagon barrel in .22 Mag. It is a beauty and has the smoothest action of any lever action I have ever seen. Get a Henry and you won't be disappointed.

Agree. I have the same gun in LR. But if the OP plans on mounting a scope, the Henry may not be the best choice.

.22mags
 
Id purchased a Stevens model 30GM (.22mag), its the recent Savage/stevens remake of the Crackshot.
Its pretty good but is not a target rifle.

Shot for shot the Taurus will out shoot the crackshot group wise and distance, I believe its because Taurus slightly counter bores the muzzle crown by 1/16" and mabe a tighter bore?

I bought one the Taurus Model 72 rimfires about 3 years before they dropped, since Taurus has dropped there whole .22 rimfire rifle line- Mine is the stainless steel pump carbine, Ive heard of problems with Taurus products but so far Ive not encounterd any issues, Its one very impressive firearm rite out the box, I'd unboxed it and looked it over at the range, and loaded it, I never got a chance to shoot it, My son wont let me shoot it as he's in love with it, for a carbine model & .22mag its deceptively accurate.

other than the funny looking bolt mounted safty widget so Taurus could import it into the USA its all business (bolt safety does not affect its handyness), the only plastic on it is the Buttplate, the rest is machined steel:D.

So long as you don't buy a semi-auto .22 Mag in the first place... It might be as much a fun gun as a serious shooter -- I'd probably look at the Henry as well. They are not flimsy toys. The barrel is a good length too -- not too long. A handy and surprisingly potent little rifle. Love the cartridge and this combination makes what I'd consider an excellent overall survival gun (I basically dismiss the .22 LR except as better than nothing at all).

I have a Winchester 94 22m I have had since 1975, if you can find one you would enjoy it.

It depends on what you want to spend. You get what you pay for. I can't think of anything much better than the Anschutz .22 mag. Most won't pay the price until they have an opportunity to shoot one. Mine's an old model 1518 mannlicher with a Weatherby scope. Hitting targets well over 200 yards is no problem.

Good point Gator...
North, if someone offers to pay u to take their Ruger 96/22 Mag., give them a quarter to call someone who might be fooled...

.22 Mag is known as "a 125 yard gun." But remember it is twice as powerful as a .22 LR!
