I want to buy a 22 bolt action rifle. There are so many options I do not even know where to begin looking. I just need something basic that will accept magazines. I would like to keep it under a couple of hundred bucks. Any help or recommendations would be great. Thanks

Everyone seems to like the CZ 452 series. They're $300-400. My Marlin 980v was ~$300 and works well, but Marlin stopped making it.

I would highly recommend a CZ Trainer or the like...

Marlin and Savage also makes some decent rimfire bolt guns.

If your looking for cheap then get the Savage MKII they have at walmart $120. It does ok for me, however if you want something that you will be proud to show off and looks nice then go with one of the CZ 22's

Very well put and not a word here to disagree with. Excellent advice.

The CZs are good but I like my Anschutz 1827s better.

I stopped by my gun guys place on the way home from work today and ordered a Savage MKII FV.
It's a five shot heavy barrel with the scope base already mounted. I already have the scope and ordered a Harris bipod for it.
It should be in on Thursday. I'm doing a cammo job and threading the barrel for my TAC65 before I ever shoot it.
The gun cost me $235.40 out the door plus $62.00 for the bipod

I don't know if CDNN has any left?

But My Charles Daly Superior II by Zastava is a great buy $149.00

Very very accurate with an easy to do yourself trigger job.

I bought two more because I liked it so much.

Reminginton is now marketing them under the Rem model 5 now
for twice the price that CDNN have them for.

Remington model 5 built by the same gun maker but a better stock.

I have an early model Ruger 77/22 I bought from a friend. Been extremely happy with. If I didn't own the Ruger I would have one of the CZ's, which is what my friend now shoots.

Good way to void the warranty if it turns out to be the turd that all gunmakers let slip every now and then (some more than others).

Romanian .22 Training Rifle if you can find one. Indestructible, far more accurate then you need and cheap.

They used to be around $50-$60.00. 5 round mag.
