Why do you need a 30 round magazine as a "standard"? You have a to buy a european target rifle to get a more accurate rifle than a Marlin Model 60 right out of the box for around $175. It has a 14 round tubular magazine. You can take it out of the box, sight it in and shoot groups smaller than an inch. That is adequate accuracy in my opinion. I haven't used a rifle to hunt termites or ants.
Regarding magazine capacity: Numerous states have laws limiting magazine capacity to 10 rounds. The Marlin 60 used to hold 18 rounds. Marlin compromised with the states at 14 rounds so they can sell it all over the US. You can buy all the off brand AK/AR clone 22's you want. If I can't go to brownells, midway or a mainstream parts supplier to get parts and accessories for a 22 it's not even on my radar.
Several US gun makers have a bolt action 22 on the market for under $200 that will shoot sub half inch groups right out of the box. I am not into bolt action 22's but plenty of forum members have pointed them out in previous posts.
