    My next .22 will be a Savage Arms Mark II Rimfire Series Model Mark II FVT

    I have a Mariln and a Winchester

    +1 on the CZ, got to shoot one this past weekend, head shots on a ground squirrel target at 100yds. With good ammo of course. Am awaiting arrival of my Savage MkII BV, hope it shoots as well as the CZ.

    It will depend on your skill level. If you are a decent marksman, I think you will be a little disappointed with Savage in direct comparison with the CZ. I'm assuming the CZ you shot was one of the better models. If your a casual plinker or hunter, the Savage is a great accurate gun.

    I personally have a Remington 597. It's a blast to shoot, especially with the 30 rd mag. It's been very reliable, and I've had no problems with it. It's also pretty accurate. I love plinking shot gun shells with it.

    It's been a while since I shot it so I had to go check what I have. A Springfield Model 56 (Manufactured by Stevens Arms Company). It has treated my Grandfather, Dad and now myself very well and is a ton of fun for just shooting. With the odd iron sights I have been accurate to 100 yards no problem and shot many varmints with it.
    Is this going back more future than we were?

    Marlin bolt actions seem to be solid, at least all the ones I've shot have been. My Savage .22 semi-auto has had a few hiccups with certain kinds of ammo, but for the 100 dollar gun it is, its plenty accurate.

    I'll throw this one out there a Henry .22 lever action. I know you made no mention of lever actions, but I have one that is a sweet shooting, smooth .22

    Never had one but would like to have a Marlin Model 39A. At least the ones made years back that I've fired were very nice.

    The CZ's and that Savage Mark II look to be good values. My son has the little Savage Mark II and it's a tack driver.

    I have several .22 rifles that see constant use but they're all oldies.

    One old obsolete .22 rifle design that I really like is the Remington "500" series bolt actions made from around 1940 to the late 1960s. These rifles are full sized for adults and fit me well. They will really stack the bullets into one hole with good ammo. They're durable, of simple construction, and parts are still readily available and inexpensive. The triggers aren't bad and may be made to be quite nice. They're still easily found, occasionally for less than a hundred bucks for a doggy-looking one that's still a serviceable shooter. It's only a matter of which style floats ones boat.

    Model 510 "Targetmaster" single shot
    Model 511 "Scoremaster" detachable magazine
    Model 512 "Sportsmaster" tubular magazine
    Model 513T "Matchmaster" heavy barreled target variation, detachable magazine
    Model 513S "Matchmaster" sporter weight target variation, detachable magazine

    I've enjoyed a lot of shooting fun over the years with a Model 510 and Model 512 and once had a Model 513T for small bore competition. Its a shame they aren't still produced.


    Only my opinion but the Ruger 10/22 leaves me cold. I've only observed and fired others' rifles but find it to be overrated.

    Try a Henry Lever Action and you'll never want to shoot the 10/22 again.

    Marlin 60 is an incredible rifle, I got one for 80 bucks at a pawn shop a couple years ago and it's been one of the best purchases I've made. The 10/22 is always a good standby too, especially for dragging around in the dirt.

    I am very seriously considering a Marlin 60 stainless over graphite myself. I had a used model 60 (about 45 years ago) and shot thousands of rounds through it. I want another now.

    Kimber if you afford one, mine can get 1/2" groups at 75yards without much trouble... and I have shot sub 1/3" groups at 50yards consistently... the trigger is nice and so is the balance and the stock.

    The next .22 rifle I buy will either be a Henry Lever Action or Marlin 39A.

    I love my Marlin 60 and prefer it to the Ruger 10/22.
