Rifle?

As much as I fucking hate Ruger, its hard to beat the 10/22

the ruger 10/22 is by far the best 22 out there, politics aside.

Bob...Bob makes a great .22

Marlin. And buy a .22 Mag--you'll appreciate it.
Link Posted: 9/30/2004 3:25:10 PM EST
Well, I would have to say the overall BEST .22 is made by Anschütz.

Best one that won't cost over two grand and weigh thirteen pounds is probably the 10/22.

IMHO, the older Winchester 52C and the Remington 513T Matchmaster. Those are some fine rifles, and are not too heavy for general plinking in the back woods.

However, on the firing line, they can turn out some amazing scores. I've come close to matching scores fired by some guy with an Anchutz ( or whatever the correct spelling is ).

Definitely fun rifles to shoot.

Remington 580 seris except those with tube mag.I have yet to see one that doesnt shoot a 1 hole group at 50yrds.thats with the right ammo and freefloat or a little pressure on the fore end

I have a Kimber Super America that is beautiful and less accurate than my 77-22 with astonishing walnut for an off-the rack gun. Ruger wins here. Maybe a fluke...

My father has a Winnie 75 and a custom Anschutz. Hell, they both win!

In the final analysis, the Ruger 10-22 wins.

Marlin Model 39A. Have had mine for over 25 years. Lever action, aaccurate and easy to maintain. Shoots anything you put in it, short,long or long rifle... fullclip

ahah! a gentleman with knowledge of rimfire rifles!

i enjoy my 513t's and i'm still buying more remmy and winny sporter weights! they are great rifles!

my 52d's are match rifles and i would like to add a 52 sporter (old, not the new repop from japan) to the varmint collection.

for plain old bag-for-the-buck, those $49 romaniam m69's turn out some amazing targets.

i outshot one of those new $700 remington 504's with a beater m69 few weeks ago from the bench.



Damn straight.

I use a Remington 513T at my local shoot club. Haven't shot smallbore before ( only very informal hihgpower-type shooting ), and second time out I had a field day. Turns out, on my second time there with a completely new rifle, first time being scored, I shot a 47/50. First time with that type of sling, a loose jacket, etc.

That is not a testament to my skill ( which I am not satisfied with anywho ). That rifle made it possible. There is something... Magical, might I say, about that walnut and steel.

I have caught the .22 bug badly. The Kimber .22s never really did it for me, although they were nice.

The Winchester is a different story altogether.

I think I will look for a Romanian surplus .22 sometime. I shot one several years ago, and for the price they are hard to beat.

For durability, maintenance and just total ruggedness, the Stevens Model 416. Parkerized & US Property marked of course.
Also extremely accurate.

Good looking rife. you just can really put a silencer on it can you?

I like this Lever action,



It's a Ruger 96/22.

The best 22 rifle I have is an Ivery Johnson 22 auto that looks like a M1 carbine. It was made in West Germany(bought it in the eighties) Acurated and reliable. I need to get off my ass and find a mag or 2 for it.

Ruger. Theres a lot of stuff out there to mod it.

I used to have a Nazi trainer rifle in .22LR, that was the best 22 I ever shot, hands down.
Link Posted: 9/30/2004 6:47:05 PM EST
I'd have to say the "Ruger 10/22-type .22LR rifle", cause as a pattern, its a winner, just like the AR and AK families. Did you know you can build a 10/22-type rifle with ALL aftermarket parts with zero Ruger made parts?

I think its unfortunate that there are no (if any) American manufactures willing to produce new competition grade 22 rifles capable of giving the crauts a run for their money.

Marlin 39. It's got superb accuracy AND will shoot .22 shorts.

Yeh, you really shouldn't take out your sexual frustrations by beating a Ruger, perhaps you should try beating something else?

Oops! I thought you wrote "hate fucking Rugers". My bad... but you still shouldn't beat them.

I've had a 10/22 for 15 years now and it's still my favorite plinker. You can stop at walmart and pick one up with a brick of ammo for what? $140? That's bang for the buck. There's plenty of aftermarket parts to evil it up with a folding stock and high-caps or enhance the accuracy with a new barrel and trigger group. I let my 14-year old nephew have the choice of all my rifles and he always goes for the 10/22. Sure, you aren't winning the gold medal with one, but it will take a lot more work to swiss-cheeze the tin can horde with an Anschutz!

Winchester 63, it's the gun DeNiro used in Heatsome guy hit a whole bunch of thrown, 2-inch wooden blocks with (as related in Unintended Consequences). Which reminds me I need to get a less pretty one of these so I feel like shooting it more.

Do you have any reservations about .177 calibre rifles?




Fires 12 shots in under 2 seconds. You won't find a more reliable semi-automatic rifle that can fire as fast as you can pull the trigger. Crosman's exclusive 12-shot rotary clip keeps you in the action longer.



Sale price: $75.99

+1! Nothing fancy, just pure .22 rimfire simplicity and accuracy.

ETA -

For an all purpose plinker - 10/22
For a good lever action - Browning BL-22
For a great and affordable target gun - Rem 513T

Bill Calfee builds the best .22 rimfire target rifles, and I expect if he built a utility gun, that would be the best (most accurate and most durable), bar none, including Anschutz and Walther. It wouldn't be the lowest price, however.

Fan of the Brownings myself. 22 takedown.
Link Posted: 10/1/2004 2:16:04 PM EST
Best .22 I ever had and should never have given away: Winchester mod. 190. Not real purty, but very accurate and I think Winchester designed them so they didn't need to be cleaned. I saw one in a pawnshop here and I think I'm gonna buy it-even though I really don't need another .22.

Marlin mod. 60: Mine's a Jam-O-Matic. No matter what I do to it. I wouldn't recommend them to anyone.

Best .22 I currently own and I ain't ever getting rid of this one: Browning BLR-22. A lever action .22, shoots shorts, longs and long rifle, light as a feather, trigger travels with the lever and it is accurate enough to shoot the tits off a fly. (Missouri bootheel saying)

I have a Glenfield bolt action .22 that sat in my closet for a year and I recently slapped a Simmons scope on it and took it to the range and for a gun that looks to be older than I am (45) it shoots like a new rifle.
