    .22lr rifle suggestions...

    I want to get a nice .22 rifle for the collection. I haven't been in the market for one in a while and would like some suggestions as to which direction I should be looking.

    I think I want a bolt action with a nice trigger but if there are semi-auto models that have similar accuracy, features and price point I would consider that too. Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

    The 10/22 is a standard, but its really just standard quality when it comes down to it. Good thing is, you can do a lot with them.

    If you really want a nice 22, check out the T/C classic or the Kimber line.

    I have 19 .22 rifles, and agree with both Ron and Sixto. You also might look at the Savage Mako; it has the adjustable trigger, and is very accurate.

    CZ also has some very nice and well made offerings.

    The CZ line is very nice as well as the Kimbers. The Ruger is the most utilitarian, and easily converted and customized. Marlins bolts and autos both have impressed me in their accuracy and overall quality to value ratio.

    I have owned over 4 22lr's and all of them were Marlins. I feel that the accuracy of the Marlin is over all Great. I live in Montana and ground hogs are farmers worst nightmares. I have taken shots over 200 yards and kills every time.

    I just bought a Marlin Model 60 in stainless. It's a great rifle but I need to do a trigger job on it. Pulls to the right because the TP is about 11 or 12 pounds and gritty. I'm aiming for between 2 and 3 pounds although any improvement would be welcome.

    If I were buying a 22 bolt rifle, it would be a Savage Model MARK II-BTV. Now has the Accu-Trigger and are, IMHO, some of the most out-of-the-box accurate rifles being produced today.

    Savage and Marlin build nice rimfires, I think I like the Marlins a little better though. Bad thing is, the triggers almost always need some work.

    CZ 453. Very good adjustable set and standard trigger, and accurate, all out of the box. No additional upgrades necessary. This is the .22LR Varmint model. :)

    I have a Savage Mark II-G with Accu-trigger and it has the best trigger among my guns.

    The Ruger 10/22 is very affordable, and has parts galore available. The Ruger 77/22 is a really fine rifle, but the trigger is somewhat heavy. CZ makes a fine rifle as well.

    Now, if you really have big $$$$, get an Anschutz.

    Hoss has always given me good advice and I think I'm going to have my FFL guy order me the Savage. The price is right and I don't do enough shooting to cost-justify a $700 .22 like the CZ and the like.

    What are the advantages/disadvantages of stainless steel?
