the 10/22 is not a 200 dollar and you're done kind of rifle. once you fix the trigger and get a new barrel and all that other stuff the 10/22 fans do to them they can be extremely accurate, but that is only after you put 500 into them.

a great rifle maybe, but not a 200 dollar rifle. the ones around here go for 250 and like i said you have to fix them up.

for a 200 dollar and you're done rifle you could always do what i did and get a marlin 60. mine was 150 plus 10 dollar background check plus 30 dollar simmons rimfire scope. 190 and i have a decent plinker. the trigger not the best ever, but it is usable. i get 1 inch or so groups at 50 yds with it.

for me that is acceptable for a 200 dollar setup.

I would stay away from the 597. I have seen more than a few issues with them. Most of the time it is FTF or FTE. If you want a semi go with the 10/22. A blast to shoot and tons of aftermarket support for it. For bolt guns I really like the CZ rifles.

What does that mean? I mean I didn't know a trigger could bad... Sorry I have only shot a 9mm before, so I am still new.

some triggers are better than others. a good one will have little to no creep or overtravel (play before and after the point where it "breaks"), and "break" at the shooters preferred amount of pressure.

most factory triggers aren't that great (with some exceptions). that is why people get after market trigger jobs to get them adjusted to their exact preference, or buy after market "drop in" triggers for their guns.

the marlin i have has a trigger with quite a bit of creep and its a little too stiff, but like i said i can live with it.

For Marlin 60 triggers, read this thread...
How I adjusted the trigger on my Marlin 60 (Drawing) - RimfireCentral.com Forums

By the end of it, ALL the basic 60/795 trigger issues are resolved, and usually at a cost of a ten bucks or less.

Then all ya need is a Boyd's Thumbhole stock & a bipod, and you can go out & smoke CZ's for breakfast.
