The Smith's are a good deal if you can find used in your price range. Don't forget about the Ruger GP100, they are solid performers. A good used Ruger should fall within your spending goal.

I purchased a CZ453 (set trigger and standard) late last year and it is the most accurate 22lr I have shot. Tight groups, reliable and repeatable results. My first CZ and I am very impressed.
