Default Best starting .22 for the money

If you are new to firearms, I would suggest the Savage single shot.
It has the best iron sights I've seen on a single shot .22 and a great trigger pull. The last time I priced one, they ran around $200.00 (Cabelas).

Sssssh, don't tell anyone, but there's no need to get all crazy expensive with a .22 . . .

It looks like the latest Marlin bolt-action is the Model XT-22. I've been very happy with my Marlin 25N.

Ruger 10/22 -- Get one for about $200 and upgrade a few parts for a total of $300 and it's it hands down the best little .22 you can have. Accurate, cheap, fun as hell and easily upgradable like an AR is -- how can you go wrong?

It's perfectly fine stock, and would still be the best .22 rifle around, but the 1 part that sucks are the sights -- replace them or put a scope on it.

And once you get your rifle, go do an Appleseed shoot

Default Best .22 rifle

All rifles mentioned are really fine firearms My preference however is the Marlin 60..

1-The rifle has slimmer profile than the Ruger 10-22

2 I feel the Marlin 60 is more accurate out the Box than all others.

3-I do not like the magazines hanging down

4-I have 2 10-22's for sale any one interested

5- I have a difficult time spending 250.00 on a Ruger and then spending 2-3 hundred dollars on it to make it as accurate as a Marlin 60

Cliff any other ?'s call 978-424-7024

+1 on the Ruger 10/22. Great quality, TONS of aftermarket stuff available and several different models to choose from. IMO you can't go wrong, it's a great platform to start and a reliable firearm.
