im in the market for a bolt action 22LR.
i want something that is not too big of a Piece of junk, but not a match grade shooter that im spending almost a thousand dollars on.
can i get a very nice 22LR bolt rifle for under 200$ or around that ballpark? are all bolt action 22LR's the same when it comes to suppressors?
i will be doing the barrel threading myself, so that does not need to be factored into the price.

The Marlin .22lr's are a great bang for the buck. In my opinion the CZ452 family is the BEST bang for the buck in .22lr bolt actions but they are a little higher than your $ range (about $400 now).

If you can find one of the Romanian training rifles they used to go for less than $100 and are uber accurate.

I picked up a Savage Mark II at Cabela's for around $120. Thread job cost me $75, but that was a good buddy hookup. Nice shooter, very quiet, and accurate enough.

Savage FTW. You would nearly have to add another zero to the price tag to beat the accu-trigger in a factory rifle.

Walmart may not stock it, but if they sell firearms, they will order it for you. Just be sure to look at the Savage website and have the exact model number you want. Walmarts master catalog doesn't go into a lot of specifics.

I bought a Savage MKII for under a $100 at Wal-mart. I got a discount on it because the front site was broken off. At first they wouldn't sell it. But in the end I talked to the manager and told him I didn't need the front sight as I was going to chop down and thread the barrel and scope it, so he gave me a discount and sold it to me.

That price range is going to keep you limited. If I had to stick with that, I might go with a Savage as well.

I went with a CZ 452, but I'm a big CZ fan.

This thread got me thinking - I'm looking at getting an old Western Field model 31 (rebranded Mossberg 40) bolt rifle in a trade from a friend to consider as a host rifle. Part of me doesn't want to butcher an old rifle, but if I end up with a $20 rifle I'd be willing to play around with it and see.

It is hard to beat an old Mossberg for a good shooter. great trigger accurate as hell, and can often be found in the unloved corner of a used rack for cheep. Also a lot more personality than a new plastic gun...
My 142k I would put up against any marlin or savage!
