    I know it's been talked about too much & after some researching I know some good ones to stick with, but what do you all have to say about just the ones on this link?

    I don't want to spend alot because I don't even hunt anymore, But I have an old rem 22 that is beat and I don't like not having a nice 22lr rifle on hand.It just feels good having one even tho I may not use it much.

    That's the page I'd shop from. First page cheapest!

    Skip the single shots ofcourse. I kinda like the bolt actions. I want to stay cheap but good.

    I know a Ruger 10/22 is always liked so I do have that on the list.

    It's hard to beat a 10/22, especially when Wally World sells them for just over $200, which is what I did.

    I am a big fan of Marlin rimfire rifles. Their micro groove rifling is awesome. They offer great semi-auto and bolt action designs. They are tough to beat for out of the box accuracy at their price point.

    if just wanting a decent inexpensive, accurate 22lr, check out the marlins. bolt action or semi-auto. i have an older M60, that still shoots great. the marlins are one of the best bargains out there for a 22lr. many different choices.

    I have several 22lr rifles so the only one there that really interests me is the Savage FV-SR since it is set up for a suppressor. The Savage plastic rimfire stocks dont work very well with a scope as they have too much drop. Easy to pad or replace though. The Ruger stocks are not that great for scopes either. I like a solid repeatable cheek weld and my Ruger is padded. If you run into one of the CZ 452, 453 or 455 rifles, take a serious look at them.

    My old Remington is from sometime back in the 80's. It's a cheap plastic stock job that has had a beating sence then.I can't even remember what model it is & it's not stamped.The thing still shoots everytime but a bolt that goes thru the stock to the barrel is broke off & the brarrel rotates side to side about 1/8 inch or more.Beleive it or not it still seemed like a good shooter last time I shot it.It was only about 30yds though.

    Well it all looks like rifle porn to me. I still have a ruger 10/22 at top because I've read so much good about them. I probably wont be doing any of the mod or add ons if I get one though except for the bigger mag. Local dealer wants $246 for a black syn stock sightless scope model(no scope). I'd rather order a standand woodstook for $200.

    I keep looking at the Savage MKIIFSS 22LR Stainless Steel
    www.impactguns.com/savage-mkiifss-22lr-stainless-steel-24700.aspx
    How are these? Any bad design when sliding the mag in? I see you can buy SS mags for it.I kinda like a bolt action.

    I guess I'm just looking for accurate, tuff but cheap.
    I'm not looking to put a scope or any add ons. I kinda like the idea of a bolt action unless it is a very well designed semi with a well designed mag.

    Savage is a great brand with accurate rifles and they are not too expensive. (I am not sure if I like savage so much because of their great rifles or because my last name is Savage)

    If you aren't going to modify it, go with a marlin 60 or 795. Much more accurate out of the box. I have a 10/22, and the two marlins (and others). The 795s are usually pretty cheap around here. Seriously shoot all three if you can.

    Downside of the 1022 is the barrels aren't as precise as other offerings, hence the huge aftermarket variety of available barrels.
    Not to mention the rest of the stuff you'll eventually switch out as well...Ruger makes an "adequate" carbine...again, that's why there's a huge aftermarket.
    If I were going to get a bone-stock 1022, it'd be a used/older one...that way you save when you go to change stuff out.
    Plus, better manufacturing in the pre-1990's versions.
    If I was planning on changing a lot, I'd start with a Volquartsen 1022 action/barrel, and go nuts from there, best 1022 parts in the Biz ;)

    They make more precise 1022's than Bill Ruger ever DREAMED!

    In my youth I had a Marlin Bolt Action that came with a scope. I paid $60.00 for the whole kit. It was a very accurate rifle and I regret that I sold it in favor of a Ruger 10/22

    I have several 10/22's and Savages, and Marlin's. They're all good.

    if looking for an accurate semi auto 22, and not looking to do any custom add-ons, then give the Marlin M60 a look. in my area, they sell for about $160+ tax, NIB, no scope. i bought a used one last year for about $75 + tax. check out some used ones too. sometimes you can pick them up for less than a $100.

    I'd love to try some out but no way around here unless you happen to know someone that already has one.

    Well I'm glad to see they still make some 22 rifles at decent prices. I'm pretty much out of the gun loop these days.I was kind of wondering if the things I used to know were still true.

    Rare to find the cheapest listed being recomended most!
    Looks like I might want to search for "Marlin bolt action 22"
    Looks good www.ableammo.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=86111

    Right now I'm just wondering why 22 revolvers cost so much compared to rifles.
