Default What .22 to buy

I own a few rifles of larger caliber and was planning on getting a .22 rifle for plinking and also small game hunting so i dont have to cheat and use my 12 gauge anymore. I currently own a henry lever action .22, and getting a mossberg m44 thru the cmp to work on. I would like a semi auto, i will be putting a scope on it and would like to stay under $200.
Ive been looking at 10/22, marlin 60, marlin 795, Remington 597. Please help me decide and tell me if their are any others i should consider.
Thanks to all

10/22 is probably the most popular and it does a great job and has about a million accessories available.

agreed
fairly cheap, accurate, and accessorizable

marlins arent bad either
you should shoot all of them if possible

ive had my 10/22 for 2 years now and have zero trouble out of it. ive fired just about every type of 22 round u can think of. its been a great little rifle. so ruger 10/22 gets my vote.

I can't seem to find a store price for this rifle, on the Ruger site it say $277, So I am assuming its a few bucks cheaper than that.

Gander Mountain® > Ruger 10 + 1 22 Long Rifle
Gander Mt. usually seems a lil bit high on price to me, not sure about this item.

I have a few friends with the lil Rugers & they love them. They have all complained about buying the cheapo brand banana magazines; don't cheap out on the accessories.
