You can get a 100 dollar .22 to shoot more accurately than any top dollar .22 rifle most of the time.

So don't complain.

Prove to me that you can make a $100 Mossberg International 702 plinkster shoot with a SHUL 150 or Anny 54!!!!! This without spending more than the cost of the rifle and the scope. You can buy the best ammo money can buy and you can do work to the gun. No new parts and no gunsmithing. Just what you can do. Let see it

When I see the targets I will buy you a shul.

Just as an aside, thought I would let you know that I was able to shoot an older Marlin Glenfield Mod. 60 this weekend. It was unexpected, and I thought it rather odd this should happen right after I mentioned that rifle in this thread. It was a very fine rifle with, oddly enough, a very nice piece of walnut. Very accurate at the range we were shooting at. It was a very Marlin weekend, as I was shooting against a good friend who was using his 70's era Marlin 39A (I believe in the 70's it was a 39A not a 39, I'm not up on my Marlin history).

I do not know how the newer Mod. 60 compares to the old Marlin Glenfield Mod. 60, but if they are still that well put together it is a steal at that price. Maybe someone else can help out here that has had experience with both iterations of this weapon.

I don't think I said plinkster.

You need to calm the hell down.

A .22 is a .22 is a .22

Am I a match shooter....no so All I need is 100 yard accuracy. If I want to kill groundhogs or squirlies at 400 yards I'll buy an AR. But I just plink. So calm down. But either way....it is possible to retrofit any gun to be accurate....even a plinkster.

I'm not spending 500 dollars on a .22 when I can get an AK.

I KNOW you don't really believe that. As with anything else, quality matters-even with a .22 rifle.

Jiro not sure what your problem is. But, you complain about a 22 costing $500 then you say you can make a plinkster shoot with an anny? I think you hit the crack pipe one to many times today. Did I say a cheap 22 is a bad one. Heck no I have some cheap 22's I am just saying that you complain that the 22 you like cost $500 but when people tell you it is worth that much you don't believe us. I have shot a browning like the one we are talking about it is a very nice very well made rifle.

Bear thanks for the back up on this. Quality cost money. Just like a BMW cost more than a Ford because the BMW is built to a much higher quality.

Why do I need to calm down? I am sitting here drinking my coffee listening to one of my favorite bands (Transfer) and typing this out. Just like every other day.

What I am doing is mearly calling you out on a stupid statement.

You do know a BMW is a piece of **** car right?

And yes you can get any .22 to shoot accurately.

New barrel. Tuned action.

There are limits but anyone with a mechanics mind could do it....course at the end of the day the .22 you built will not be the same .22. But it is possible to get it to shoot accurately....probably not as accurately as one of those ****ty high dollar .22s but you get my deal.


We all have our personal tastes....mine is with saving money and a .22 that is accurate out to 50-100 yards and that's it.

Ok so you buy a $100 22lr and put $900 into it. The thing will still not shoot with a $900 Shul 150.

JZ713,If she's wanting a western style semi auto,try to find a nice used Winchester 63 or a Taurus 63. I have a Taurus 63 and it has been a decent gun,it's nowhere near the quality of an original Winchester,but it doesn't have the price tag either. They are both fun to shoot,but both are open sight guns,so if you want to use a scope you will have to machine grooves into the receiver.

The picture you have is a marlin 39a thats what annie oakley shot most for her trick shooting. There is no western semi auto so why not just buy her a Marlin like in the pic.
