    I was thinking about getting this gray semi auto 22.lr but I don't know if I should get this one or a bolt action.

    Bolt- or semi .. Thoughts ?

    Now remember I'm using this for hunting

    Is it a 10/22? I have one and it's just as accurate as a bolt

    I have a 597 and it works great. However it does have to be clean, clean the magazine the rest of the rifle will work fine. :D

    Put about 2500 rounds through it then TOTALLY tear it down and clean it. It will be junk afterwards. I know because I have about 20 in the junk pile at the shop. All w the same 2 problems

    Then you have the problems they come w-charging handle isn't pinned in, triggers like dragging an anvil, picky as hell on ammo, can't adjust said anvil trigger, springs get messed up easily, and the receiver is made of CHEAP pot medal

    Bolt or semi? Do you like to drive a stick, or prefer an automatic? Do you like to take some time and try to put ten rounds through one hole, or prefer to keep a tin can jumping around?

    Brand new cci mini mags or maxi mags work best for that. Cci is the only brand iv ever seen em shoot right. The shoot federal bulk well too.....if they've never been disassembled
