I would say it compares favorably with my buddies tacticool 10-22, accuracy-wise.

I don't use one, but they do sell these things that hold multiple tubes worth of ammo ready to gravity feed to the tube. http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/product/GNS-120

18 rounds has been enough for me.

The 597 would be my choice for a 22 WMR. But for a 22LR it's hard to beat a 10/22. The Marlin Model 60 is the most economical of the semi-auto 22LR crowd. Buy a model 60 that has a stock that you like right out of the box. A million rounds later you might have to fix something about it.

How about a CZ 455 American or Lux?

Idk I like bolt guns but the lack of a rate of fire turns me off. Are there any that have spare mags widely available? If I got one it would have to be way more accurate than a 10/22 marlin and 597

so if you open to more suggestions.... if you want out of the box, add a scope and sh0ot bullseye. buy a marlin 60. if you want aftermarket parts, buy the 10/22. of the ones you listed i voted 10/22. but of all the . 22.'s my vote is for a marlin 60

I would go with a marlin 60 myself for accuracy and dependable for a semi auto, and a Henry golden boy for lever action

Definitely the 10/22 out of those choices.

The thread title scared me at first.

Why do you need a high fire rate? I always thought a bolt/lever/pump action gun would cumbersome and sort of useless, until I got my first gun (a pump .22).

For a first rifle a bolt/lever/pump .22 is the way to go in my opinion.

I would not buy from the list you provided.I have 2 10-22's and I am not impressed. I have two Marlin 60's and I am impressed.Never shot the 597 ,heard to many negative reports. Handle them all, you will know then the right one. Cliff
