i dont know man. the 10/22 is a nice gun but i would try the Remington. Remington always seems to amaze me with how accurate their rifles are.

Don't decide until you've looked at the Savage 64 series.

10/22 definately. I just would replace the factory trigger. Otherwise a fine gun.

Good point about the american made so ill def. go check one out. But on one hand i bought a Henry (American made) .22 leveraction and was quite dissapointed to find the reciever to be cast. IMO they could have done better even though it was the bottom line .22 it was still a $300 .22

I have a Savage 64 and am less then thrilled with it. Fit and finish are so-so and it jams more then it should. I'm VERY happy with the Savage Mark II I have but if I was buying a semi-auto .22 again it would be a 10/22.

Just my 2 cents.

I've currently got a 10/22 carbine, the cheapest model. It's a wonderful little rifle. But, before you run off and get one, take a careful look at the Marlin 60.

There's been a "bazillion" of these things built over the years, and they've always worked marvelously. I've also got one of them which I wouldn't trade for anything. Had it for years. Most of them are really accurate, and they usually are a little cheaper than the Ruger. Granted, there aren't near as many updating, changing, modifying accesories available, as there are for the 10/22. But, most of us don't do those things anyway. The only modfication that I've ever done to my 10/22 was to put one of those magazine release levers on it. The mag was pain in the butt to get out. I haven't found anything that I really needed to do to the 60.

Just thought I'd give you another avenue. Not saying don't buy the 10/22. Just saying, take a look at both.

Good luck.

SgtSam
