well, not really. i already have an old savage 24 in 22lr/20 made in '65 but i may be getting my first new rifle soon. just wondering what y'all thought might be best for me. i'm pretty set on a bolt or lever action because i'm not your typical soon to be 19Y.O. and i dont want to spray a bunch of lead, hoping to hit the broad side of a barn at 2 feet. i'm reasonably capable with a rifle and plan to do some 50+ yard shooting with CCI quiet (supposing the rifle tolerates it) so i need a rifle capable of at least 1-1/2" groups at 75 yards. i'm interested in the marlin xt22 (both the tube fed and box mag fed), savage MKII GL ('cause i'm a south paw), standard savage MKII and the Henry lever action. i'm unsure what the gun shops have as i havent really checked either. i remember the big shop had a few cheap .22 bolts, some made by companies i'd never heard of and i cant remember who they were. i'll see about checking them out this weekend and report back with what they have in my price range. in the mean time, what do you think of the guns i've listed?
