    .22 LR Rifle...Bolt, Auto, Pump or AR Type Gun

    Which type .22 Rifle do you prefer to shoot or have in your gun stash. Is what you have your first choice or would you get a different type? Also what brand rifle to you own and why did you choose it? Thanks,

    Ruger 10/22.

    Affordable.

    Fun.

    Customizable.

    It's becoming the American classic .22

    It is and will always be my first choice.

    Bolt. CZ rimfires are way more gun for the money than any other product out there. They are great rifles.

    Rimfire ammo tends to have a lot of duds, especially the cheaper bulk packs.

    For this reason, I prefer a bolt action rifle in .22. A lever or pump would be fine as well.

    I own both a Ruger M77 bolt rifle in .22, and a 10/22 semi auto.

    Some day soon, I will use that bolt rifle to teach my kids to shoot.

    I have a Mossberg Model 42, bolt action, magazine fed (7 rd.) It was a hand me down from my GrandFather, and when he is old enough, it will belong to my son. I love this rifle, hadn't been loaded in 15+ years, I took it out and it drove tacks, with iron sights, at 25 yards (my eyes are horrible, I'm not much good past that without a scope and I dont want to drill the rifle).

    I would like to get my hands on a Henry .22 Lever action. Looks like a fun little plinker.

    Ruger 10/22.

    I've heard great things about Ruger 10/22, and I love Ruger, so, can't go wrong there either.

    Also, I would like to take out a Walther G22... those look like a blast too.

    Henry LEVER ACTION!!! Fun to shoot and buttery smooth. If you get a dud, just rack the lever and keep going.

    If you prefer a pump, get a Remington pump 22.

    Either of these is a blast to shoot.

    Sig 522 and GSG MP 5 clone.
    Close as I can get to my SIG 556 and MP 5 type weapons for training.
    Can teach the kids and wife on them then move them up to full size later on.

    I like 'em all. I've got bolts, levers, and semi's. I can't say I like one better than the other.

    I don't care much for the AR style 22's, but then I don't care much for black rifles period, so that doesn't surprise me.

    My favorite is a Remington bolt. Great trigger. My 10/22 is a good gun with lots of after market goodies, I'm just not interested in sinking any money into it right now. My wife loves the Browning Lever Action. My next 22 will probably be a Henry Lever Action.

    My "hands down, first choice" goes to the 10/22, if you had to have just one to serve several roles (fun, hunting, part of the bug-out armory). They run like the Energizer bunny and they're plenty accurate out of the box.

    However - my first modern .22 was a 77/22 that's been lightly tweaked by CPC, and it's a sweet-handling gun (and a complement to my M77). Next came three 10/22s, all modified to varying degrees.

    The current rimfire lust is for a CZ452 American in .22 mag... as atctimmy pointed out, CZ rimfire bolt guns are an excellent value.

    I have a Savage Mod 64 and a S&W M&P 15-22. If you like AR's and the price of 22 ammo, the M&P 15-22 is a ton of fun.

    I just picked up a Savage Mark II FVT (the target version). The gun comes with an "Accutrigger", 20" bull barrel, target sights and is drilled and tapped for a scope. It uses a five round detachable box magazine (and I assume the ten round mags will fit fine as well). The rifle is actually quite light and an absolute tack driver. I removed the large disk aperture and replaced it with a standard hunting size. By using a blade insert in the globe front sight, the sight picture is a lot like my receiver sighted lever guns. I really, really like this little rifle!

    When I was a teenager, I had a Marlin 39A lever action .22 rifle. I still regret selling that great gun, even though I've since acquired a Marlin 336 30-30. Something about the lever gun, and it was stone reliable and accurate!
