Default What's your favorite rimfire? and Why?

I'd thought of this, I have a favorite go-to-first rimfire, it isant the most accurate and doesent have sentimental attachment either just my favorite.
It wouldent be fair to ask just about .22's so chime in if you got a favorite.
Whats your favorite rimfire and why??

Default Well...

My favorite rimfire is a Marlin Model 80C bolt action that I picked up at a flea market near Shamokin, Pa while killing some time before the range opened up by 3 Pines Golf Course. It was sitting in a rack of toy rifles, it looked brand new ( it was actually from the 1960's ) so I asked about it and bought it for $75. It fires .22 short, long, and long rifle from a seven round magazine...and with just iron sights, it's a tack driver. It's my favorite because I can shoot it all day long for pennies on the dollar...and because it so damn accurate.

Anyone else own a Marlin M80C ?

I've got a Marlin Model 80 G, I think, I'd have to look when I get home to be sure.
This belonged to my Great Grandfather, came from the factory with the scope and is a tack driver! It technically belongs to my dad but I've been taking care of it for him for a little while because I don't have one and I wanted to do some squirrel hunting.

I am really fond of my Remmy 597. Accurate and easy. I know that it is Wifey's favorite! As said, shoot for pennies. My Pop swears by his Mossberg plinkster (hasta be circa 1950).

I think with rimfires it is with what you are most comfy. If you know how it shoots, and you likey....

Mine would be my Remington 511 Score master in a 513T stock. It shoots 1" 5 shot 100 yard groups and even looks good while doing it.

Hmm...I have 3 top contenders. A Lever, a Semi-Auto and a Bolt.

1.) Marlin 39. I have a carbine (39A Golden Mountie) from the late 40's, and a rifle (39AS) from the early 90's. Here is a pic of the rifle.
2.) Thompson Center arms TC Classic. A semi auto with match grade accuracy, graceful lines, and beautiful walnut stock.
3.) Anschutz 54 Sporter. Sleek, graceful and amazing accuracy.
4.) Gratuitous pic of my late 60's vintage 10/22 with beavertail forend. I'm not a big 10/22 fan, but have a couple.
5.) Added a 70's vintage Belgian Browning Take Down .22. This one has the original Browning hard case.

Winchester Model 190 .22 semi auto rifle. This was my first "real gun" so holds special meaning plus its just a really fun gun to shoot

That gun sat in my dad's closet for a number of years before I asked to borrow it to do some squirrel hunting this past year. I wiped it off before taking it out and after that I took it completely appart and really cleaned it up which is what you see in the pic.

That gun has a bit of history to it as well, it was purchased by my great grandfather who was quite the marksman from the stories I've been told but I never had the pleasure of knowing him. Anyway, my dad had always seen him shooting this thing and he always like it but was never allowed to use it because apparently his grandfather was a little particular about his guns and didn't want his young grandson to mess it up. My dad has told me this part many times, as his grandfather got older and his health began to fade he called my dad into his room one day, sort of out of the blue. He told my dad to go get the rifle and bring it to him, so he did and when he came back with it he was told to keep it, it was his. Shortly after that his grandfather past away and he's had the rifle ever since. That was around 50 years ago, I know that is one rifle that will never leave our family.
