Hey guys, I am looking for a inexpensive .22 bolt action, magazine fed (woops almost said clip! ;-) Anyways. I was looking at a savage today, Looked pretty nice, Any suggestions? Any place to get spare mags? Thanks. Also, What kind of accuracy can I expect, especialy with CB longs at about 15 yards. Thanks! -Jared Edited to add accuracy question.

I have a Romanian 1969 .22 training rifle. It's a nice gun for it's price. A great deal. Accuracy is pretty good. At 25 yards I can hit about a half-dollar size target pretty regularly. Still havne't taken it into the range yet. Spare magazines are expensive though. The cheapest I've got them for is $15. When you consider the gun is only $60 and the size of the 5 round magazine, it seems like a rip-off...

I have had good luck with the Marlin's Glennfield line of .22LR bolt guns. I had a model 25 (may of been a 20??). I never had any trouble with it. I paid like $69.95 for it brand new (may be a little more now??). It had a 7-shot magazine. Replacement mag's were like $10.00. I just plinked with this rifle. It would hit soup cans at 50 yards time after time. I got sick of working the bolt and sold it to by a Marlin mod 60. I paid like $89.95 for this one. It has a tube magazine. I always see a rack of older .22LR bolt actions in most gun shops I go to. These are store name brands, and were made before the need for serial numbers. They are not in bad shape, but not as popular as Ruger 10/22's. I have seen give away prices such as $35.00 to $50.00 on some of these. In most cases the shop-owner will take anything because he has had to dust them off for years. I have even seen one given away for free, when a guy had his kid with him when he had bought a new shotgun. The gift of that first .22 rifle, made a long-time loyal customer out of that boy. Good luck on your quest OSA

Yeah, I have a Montgomery Wards .22 single shot bolt action rifle. I bought it for $40 to pop squirrels. I actually scoped it and zeroed it to 50 yards, and it has totally decent accuracy. I'd rather have a Romanian with a mag feed, but whatever.

I agree about the Romanian, but the clips are getting harder to find. Have you looked at the Mossberg 44US from the C.M.P.? Last time I got one they ran $80 like new in the box, but the mags are running around $35-45. Depends on which model Savage it is on where you can find the mags. Those off-brands like Monkey Wards and Western Field are some good old beaters for just something to plink around with. But my favorite is a 10/22

I just got one of the Romanian training rifles. It looks pretty good, has a nice front sight blade, and flip up rears, for 25, 50, 100 meters. I'm taking it to the range saturday. I'll let you know how it shoots. $49.00.

Go with the Romanian, it is a great little .22. [sniper] My range even has a Romanian league every Sunday. They sell them for $60 new. [sniper]

I may be wrong, but I'm pretty sure I saw the Romanian's go for $39.00 in Shotgun News. Friend has one, OUTSTANDING rifle for the money!

With a CZ Zkm452 and a cheap scope, you can put all the 5 rounds of the mag inside one inch at 50 meters...

I have a Remington SCOREMASTER . It looks almost like a REM700 and is mag fed. It has a very long barrel about 26". Very accurate. I would say it is about 50 years old. My grandfather bought it new for my dad.Action is very smooth.
