    The price is the kicker. I'm not sure on the marlin 60 price, but I think it's about the cheapest good semi auto on the market. For that price though, your probably looking at a good bolt action .22.

    Marlin 60 or a remington 597. I love my mossberg 702 plinkster also. My question is what you are going to use it for amd what you want to do to it. As a basic little info advice deal those three are the ones that come to mind brand new. If you shop around at pawn shops you could probably also find anything else used for cheapish.

    Marlin 60's run around $159-169 at most sporting goods stores.

    Marlin 795 (box-mag-fed) runs around $129 at most stores, can often be found for $99 on sale for Black Friday :)
    Add in the $25 Marlin Factory Rebate, and you've got the best deal this year
    :D

    MAKE SURE its an MM serial...the all digit serials are from CT, and their last year models (start with 90xxxx) SUCK!!
    Some of the first ones from the new NY plant have out-of-spec 3/8" accessory rail, no biggie, just call Marlin
    and send it back real quick...occasional MM01xxx serials for the most part. Also easy to fix yerself...

    My 2009 795 from CT had the rail issue also, I just used a triangle file on it until it was in spec & repainted the receiver with Krylon Flat Black.
    I was too into pimping it out at the time & didn't wanna wait 4-6 weeks, LOL

    I bought my Ruger 10/22 for just about $200 here locally. It's a great semi.

    I found an old old R10/22 for cheap, fixed it up and it's spectacular, great old solid craftsmanship, real wood, great parts and very accurate at 100 yards. I might have $150 into it plus my time.

    Except that the Ar7 was never used by the military. It was based on a similar rifle (Ar5) which was a bolt action in 22 hornet. The 22lr semi was never adopted or issued. All marketing hype.

    My recommendation would be the Marlin 795, best bang for the buck right now.

    Take a look at what this guys did to his...Look at all three parts.

    I would recommend the Ruger 10-22 for a high quality good shooting 22 LR. They are hard to beat! And you can also trick them out later. There are all kind of goodies available for them.

    The 10/22 is good, but has its' own demons, that is the reason for the after market parts. The Marlin 60 is very solid, very accurate, with a scope. I hate the block sights. They are worth sqaut even for 50 yard plinking of cans. W/ a simple 4x or 3-9x32mm scope, they are outstanding. One rifle that amazes me is my sons M1969 Romanian trainer. It has 25, 50, and 100 meter leaf sights. For a $100.00 rifle it is accurate way past its' price point. His is matching which is not the norm. Great little bolt gun.

    I'd find a good used 10-22 before i spent $200 on a new "lesser" rifle :rolleyes:
    New 10-22's can be found for close to $200 :cool:

    Thing is, the 1022 starts out as a "lesser rifle" until you toss a few hundred bucks its way...
    the 1022 is like a Boat, a hole in the water into which you throw money that you will maybe see half of it return.

    Not necessarily. I've had a couple and they were good right out of the box. 10/22's get the same BS rap that Mini 14's get. If you don't like them, don't buy one. But enough with the negative waves. You're giving me a headache Moriarty.

    I have had my 10/22 for over 20 years and the only money I have spent on it is s scope and extra magazines and its plenty accurate for me.

    I have yet to see a new 10/22 for 200 dollars. The cheapest I've seen is 399. I'm not saying it doesn't happen, but I didn't mention it to the OP because I've never seen them go that cheap myself, except for a used one.

    $200 or less, the Marlin M60 and a decent scope and rings. or a good used Ruger 10/22 with a decent scope and rings. both are good little rimfires and will last a long time if taken care of.
