Mines a semi-auto with a Single-shot switch that locks the bolt after each shot....

Mine looks very different than the one in the link. Mine has open sights and a built in dovetail for a scope..

Kinda like this pic... (not mine, just a pic I found)

I've got to disagree about the amount of money it takes to make a 10/22 shoot great. I recently built a 10/22 and it only ran me around 500$ and it shoots 1/2 moa or under.

I think your best bet for out of the box accuracy would be with a Marlin 795. Replace the tupperware stock, a little trigger work and some nice glass can be done well under your $800 budget. A Ruger 10/22 can shoot just as well, but you will spend every bit of the $800 and maybe more. Not a fan of the Savage 64 or the Remington 597.

You can buy the Marlin 795 for ~$125 and Marlin is offering a $25 mail in rebate through 2011 on top of that. Buy a $40 rimfire scope and hit 1" groups @ 50 yards with ease.
I'll second that

Here's my Marlin 795, got less than $225 in it

$99 Marlin 795 on sale, minus $25 rebate
$15 Ramline stock (originally intended for the Marlin 70HC)
$10 to make the Ramline a folder with an ATI-SKS Retrofit Kit
$20 Shooter's Ridge Bipod on sale
$10 Razor Sling
$70 DIP billet aluminum replacement trigger guard & wide blade target trigger (set to 2 & 1/4 pounds)
$5 worth of Acraglas bedding compound
$10 Marlin 25MN target-adjustable rear sight

I eat Rugers & CZ's for breakfast at the range...peeves them off to find out that a Marlin tore 'em a new one .
Makes for a lot of new Marlin converts in Florida, tho...

You might buy it on sale, but the parts yer gonna need to boost its performance to equal a Marlin are gonna set you back another $400 or so...

Its actually better & less expensive to buy a Volquartzen 1022 outright than it is to throw money into a Ruger 1022,
80% of which you're going to remove and throw away as you replace the barrel & guts & trigger...

At least if you start with a Volquarten, that's ALL you'll ever need to buy
