So I've got the Mosin for when I feel like blowing away half the county and my shoulder out of joint, but I want a small (.22 for example) target rifle.

Is the Ruger 10/22 a good deal?

I found a Tula .22 at a dealer that just felt cheap.

All the small ones at Walmart feel too small for me.

Any suggestions?

I've suggested this one before:

Savage Arms Mark II.





You can get 'em in wood or black plastic.

Is a great little .22 lr bolt action with 10 round magazine.

I own 3. One for me, one for my daughter, and a shorter "youth" model I got in trade.

I'm a big guy (6'2", 300#) and have no problems with them.

The 10/22 is a great buy as you can get a basic model and have lots of fun shooting it, but you can also play "barbie" gun with it and dress it up as money and time allows.

The Marlin 60 is another fine plinker at a nice price point. Savage makes good stuff too. I have a CZ 452 Varmint that will put together some wonderful groups.

IfWhen I get a .22 rifle, I'll probably get a CZ 452. After my 75B, I can't help but love CZ.

I have yet to sight mine in completely to get the scope dead on. I need to get a different set of rings. It throws wonderful groups though. I also bought a trigger kit from Eric Brooks that I need to install as well.

I picked up a Marlin 925 at a gun show back in December that's been a fun little number:

I've got the Savage Mark II and it's a great plinker. My Walmart has them for $114. Plenty accurate out to 50 yards if I do my part.

Can't beat the 10/22. They can be had brand new for less than $200. Good used ones are way less than that.

After you get bored with it, there is an endless supply of aftermarket parts to go with it.

Plus, the $220 (plus $75 for the scope) Wal-Mart special is is purdy:

The 10/22 is a good all around choice for a first .22 You can come out a little cheaper with a Savage or Marlin but you won't get the versatility.

Think about spending the extra money on stainless. This is a gun you will shoot a lot and keep a lifetime.

The only stainless part is the barrel.

The receiver and trigger group are painted aluminum alloy. Mine are silver and black, respectively.

I had an old marlin - it was fun & took a good beatin'
if I remember correctly it was a pita to clean

it was the only gun I gave up in my divorce
I was the gun license holder so I took the rest of the firearms

the 10/22 is a pretty gun

Hey Snake:

How about something like this?

It's a little larger than a .22. It's also somewhat of an unusual caliber, so finding cheap surplus ammo might be a problem. But it sure is pretty!

I think I'm in lust...... :love: :love: :love:

OK, I KNOW I'm in lust! What a beauty! :woohoo:

Or, for something a little smaller and in a more common cartridge, how about this?

I just thought I was in love with the first one. After simply looking at the pics of the second one, I needed a cigarette..... If I were allowed to actually fondle it, I'd probably stroke out or have a heart attack or something similar. WOW! Gorgeous is an understatement!!!!!

macktee those are pretty guns!
I like that Holland

maybe if that price was peso's I might be able to afford it :p
That's still out of my price range!

Currently, the peso is trading at almost 11 to the dollar, so the price would be somewhere around $18k...!

But I agree, it is one superbly beautiful work of art~~~~~~~
