    Kel-Tec SU22
    Ruger 10/22
    Henry Lever action H001
    Remington 597

    I wont be modding anything like triggers, barrels, etc. I'm not quite that advanced yet.... So how does these stack up? If I got the Ruger, I would however put on "taticool" accessories just for the fun of it, because all I am looking for right now is a fun gun. Thanks!

    Looking for a fun gun? I do hope when you get a weapon, you will not play with it,They are not a toy, they are a tool to respect, I do hope you are joking.

    I hate to say it but get the 10/22 and as your knowladge and experiance grows you cna start to mod it out. then you can end up with a unique rifle built by you.

    If you want a real rifle get a bolt action. Like a mossberg M44us.

    Geez you guys take everything so literally. :rolleyes:

    Yeh, a fun gun, nothing wrong with that. In no way did he say he was going to be irresponsible in any way. If plinking is not fun to you then you take yourself way too seriously, internet range officers.

    To the OP.

    I think 597's are more accurate out of the box than 10/22's. There's alot of mods you can do with them too and you'll have an extra $100 for what you paid for a base model.

    I would recommend a Ruger 10/22 WAYYYYYY more than a Remington 597. Getting a decent trigger on a 597 is beyond the scope of the average shooter. Also there's not really that much stuff out there for 597s. I've had to fix too many 597s to like them. In fact, a guy brought 1 in the other day in a box-seems he took it completely apart and wasn't able to get it back together. A 10/22 will run out of box & when he's comfortable enough later, he can mod it however he wants.

    I'd say Ruger 10/22. Theres only 1 thing I hate about it. Putting the bolt back in. If you can get over that, the the 10/22 is perfect. I like the flush magazines, compared to all the other 22's with magazines.

    the only one i can speak for is the ruger 10/22 mine's still stock and i love it shoots great and its very accurate in my opinion. i thought about it but in modding it i'm not goin the whole tactial route a scope and some high cap mags is all i need on it.

    When I said taticool, I ment nothing more then like an ATI Fiberforce stock, or an Evolution stock, and just a 30round magazine.

    ....Fun meaning as just to plink though.

    I'm the same way. Except, I doubt NY would allow me to have one lol. Mines stock with a sling. Works great for plinking and hunting.

    I was looking into a tactical stock for ****s and giggles.

    Dont worry. Guns are fun and you should have fun with them. If you're safe and finger off the trigger, then they are fun to plink. Dont always need to be serious. Just dont be irresponsible.

    Yeah, it's hard to beat the Ruger 10/22, why heck, that's why everybody and his uncle owns one; that is the one reason I will NOT own one. After getting and firing my Colt/Walther .22 M4 I wouldn't even consider any other semi auto .22.

    I didn't mean nothing by it my friend. I've thought about getting a folding 6 position stock and red dot scope and light and bipod and stuff i can always switch back and forth i use it for hunting small game and plinkin around at the range

    I sold my 10/22 awhile back didn't have much luck with it, bought a Browning lever action. A person can almost shoot as fast as a semi. I put a scope on it and it's real accurate. Very happy with it

    Haha thanks, and don't worry guys i'm not taking anything to seriously lol. FYI I am joined in the NRA!

    Anyways, I think I am going to go the 10/22 route just for customizability. I am going to start a new thread for that, thanks guys!

    Ive gotta be honest I regret not getting the 10/22 over the 597, the factory mag is hell always jamming, cant wait to drive down to georgia next week , try to get my hand on a 30 rnd mag. Saw one in a local gunshop but the owner told me he wouldnt sell it to me since there not legal in ny, yet i asked him why he would have it out, he said well not for that price.he wanted $80 for the mag LOL... yeah sure.

    On Rimfire Central, a guy has a pre-ban 30rd mag for the 10/22. Not sure how much he wants for it.
    I hate NY.
