    For $125, the Mossberg .22 Plinkster is a really great shooting rifle to own.

    Marlin 25MN, which if I were a better shot on this day, this pic would be a smiley-face :)

    Got the smile part...needed the eyes...LOL...but a gust caught me off on the last two bullets...

    Marlin 25MN/25M/882/925M/982-series(heavy barrel)/XT22M series all share parts and you can put an XT trigger into a 25MN & the others...

    The big differences are the stocks & trigger assemblies (25 is pretty basic, the 925/982 have the T-900, & the XT series have the Best trigger...adjustable)

    As it stands, my Marlin 25MN usually shoots better than I can :)
    Not to mention being less expensive than most offerings out there...

    As to which is the best for the money, that's a tough question. All the major manufactures make a pretty good product, and generally the more expensive a rifle is the higher the quality. The Ruger M77/22 looks to be about the best quality .22 mag, but you'll pay for it. I think you're just going to have to look at the models and figure out which one you like for the money. :)

    Oh, and if you like Semi-auto .22WMR, there are few working options...
    Grendel R-31 (own, requires Goldenloki.com reliability treatment, works fantastic after!)
    Marlin 922M (own)
    Keltec RMR-30 (want to own)
    H&R 700 (hard to find, but worked well!)
    Volquartzen's .22WMR (too expensive...)
    Magnum Research's .22WMR (too expensive...)

    The ones that don't work well or generally suck for other reasons...
    Excel Accelerator (don't want)
    Ruger's 5-times discontinued 1022M (more problems than a Yugo...that's why they sold it to MR & VQ)
    I'm thinking there's one or two more..., but they suck, so it doesn't matter ;)

    CZ reportedly also recently came out with a .22WMR semi...but I've yet to test one.
    Should be interesting ;)

    I have a Winchester 9422m, I see them for sale in my LGS every now and then.

    For semi-auto if you could find an H&K model 300, you would not be disappointed.

    As far as new guns, Henry makes both levers and pumps in a 22 mag.

    Henry makes some fine lever and pump guns in 22 Mag. Some even have Ocotgon barrels for modest prices. Levers n pumps are just more fun to shoot.

    Anschultz makes a great bolt gun.

    I have a Henry pump (H003TM) .22 WMR with octagon barrel. It
    shoots great, very accurate. I really like the pump action.

    I have the 452 in 22lr and it is the best rimfire I have ever shot. Very easy to put 5 for 5 into a sheet of paper at 100 yards with open sights. I can't wait to get my hands on the 22 mag version

    I have a Ruger 77/22, but not the magnum, and it is a very nice rifle. I would love to have one in .22 magnum -- but they are a little expensive.

    I picked up this Savage 93G for $214 and put a Bushnell scope on it, all for under $300. Great 22 Magnum rifle.

    O.K. resurected from last summer, but I'll play.

    The best .22WMR is hands down the Browning A-bolt Gold Medalion. I have one I bought new. It was only made for 2 years. I paid 475.00 in the early 1990's. I had never spent that much on any rifle before. It was limited and had to be ordered. It will shoot well under 1" at 100 yards. I found one on an auction site. Bidding started at $800.00. Mine wears a Bushnell Trophy I bought used for $65.00. 3-9x40mm when I bought the rifle. Trigger is less then a pound. Bottom in pic. Just awesome in every way.
