Hello all, I'm in the market for a .22 rifle for my 12 year old son it will be used mainly at the range (indoors 25yds) for target practice. We stopped by Dicks sporting goods and they had quite a few. He held the Ruger 10/22 and the Remington 597 and immediately fell for the 597. The Ruger was priced at $238. and the 597 at $179 in OD with a scope included. I have searched through the forum and saw some good and bad posts in regards to the 597. Any advice and expertise will be truly appreciated thanks in advance!
