You thinkin' 'bout shootin' that goofy hat off the dog?

Seriously, I don't know of any semi auto that looks like a lever action. There are pump .22's out there and there are some great .22 levers.

Henry and Marlin and maybe Puma make nice levers.

Maybe somebody else here knows of one, but I can't think of anything even close. Sorry.

Well it doesn't have to look like a lever...just western like style.


I tried to get her into the Pink 10/22s but that's a no go....she likes them....but she's a Southern Wood loving bell.

I think tube fed or magazine is fine with her.


She was oggling a 500 dollar browning a while back that was tube fed....but that's just to damn much for a .22.

Didn't Annie Oakley use slide action rifles at some point? Henry and Taurus are western style.

You have a tough order to fill. Western styling and semi-auto are rather difficult to find in the same package. There are a few rifles that might fit the bill, you might run these by her and see what she thinks.

Marlin Model 60 - (Marlin) At the low end of the price spectrum and by all accounts seems to function reliably. I have never owned one so I cannot attest to the accuracy, however they have been in service for a while.

Ruger 10/22 Classic Carbine - (Ruger) This is a special run of the Ruger 10/22 that is being done by Talo. It is supposed to be modeled after European styling, but it has a western feel with the straight grip. The nice thing about the Ruger is there are parts damn near everywhere. There are also a lot of people around who work on them since they are so simple and modular.

Browning Semi-Auto Grade I - (Browning) This would be the high end of the spectrum. This rifle has been around for a very long time, so it might be possible to get a nice condition used one, though YMMV. This rifle is a real classic and it would be hard to go wrong.

Just my $.02, but I would be proud to own any of them. Hope this helps.

Aye.

Yeah there was a browning like that for 500 bucks but man....500 for a .22?

But she likes it you know.

I'll try to clue her into the 10/22 classic though....she might like that.

Why does everyone assume that all 22 lr guns need to be cheap as hell?

I good quality 22lr will get more use and be just as accurate if not more accurate than a centerfire. You still have to machine the thing just like a centerfire rifle. They still have to test the design before putting it on the market. 99% of the step to make a centerfire go into making a rimfire. So again why should the be so much cheaper.

I would much rather spend $1200 of a good quality accurate 22lr than a centerfire any more.

IF you want cheap then get a dam mossberg international 702 or 802 plinkster. you will be bitching in a few days when it breaks and will not shoot anything small than a bowling ball.
