Sure bet is a Ruger 10/22. Also Dan Wesson Firearms now makes .22 rifles, check them out at [url]www.danwessonfirearms.com[/url] that's what I'm looking at for Christmas!

I just traded a 10/22 with Peep Sights 3 days ago. Seriously. Folding stock and flash hider too.

There are alot of people at the shop who can't say enough good about the CZ 22 rifles... they shoot both the sporters and the heavy barrel and less the .250 groups at 75 yards with multiple different types of ammo are not uncommon. [url]http://www.cz-usa.com/pro/prod_b.html[/url]

Anschutz. Not cheap, but worth it.

go to : benchrest.com and that question under the rimfire section.

It's a sure bet that someone will mention the 10/22 in any discussion of .22 rifles, but it isn't much of a [b]target[/b] rifle, at least in stock form. And by the time you've replaced the barrel, stock, sights and trigger, you've spent enough to have bought one of the cheaper Anschutz rifles.

I think CMP still has Kimber 22's that come with peep sights.
Link Posted: 10/22/2001 5:18:55 AM EDT
i've been kicking around the idea of one of these CMP kimbers as well. how do they compare to other .22 target rifles?

I own a Marlin 2000 Target rifle. It's built along the lines of a biatholon rifle. It does have peep sights, heavy barrel & stock & about a 2lb trigger. It will shoot ragged holes all day long with the proper ammo & it retails for about $450-500, I think. Go to Marlin's web site & check out their info. They have two models in this type, a radical colored model & the plain jane model. Unlike buying another brand, you won't have to change the barrel, trigger, stock, etc. etc.

I understand that the Kimbers aren't [i]that[/i] accurate. That is, compared to an Anschutz. I understand they are comparable to the CZs. But, go to benchrest.com and ask that. The Ruger really doesn't qualify.

Get a Ruger 10/22. This one was $200 [img]http://wsphotofews.excite.com/021/uy/9F/Fd/hS45033.jpg[/img] I shot this target last thursday. I fired between 350 and 400 rounds at it at 50 yards. It groups better than this. I got bored after 2 hours and started trying to make the hole bigger. [img]http://wsphotofews.excite.com/018/Kz/JD/pl/i134877.jpg[/img]

Anschutz. Try [url]www.nealjguns.com[/url] and look at his used guns. You'll NEVER be sorry. SRM

Then you're obviously unfamiliar with Connecticut Precision Chambering [url]http://www.ct-precision.com[/url] I've had Randy do two 10/22s over the past few years and am getting ready to send in a third. For $173 including return S&H, he will perform a complete "tuneup" which includes setting the barrel back and recrowning, reworking the trigger, modifying the bolt release, refacing and jeweling of the bolt. And yes, it shoots like a match rifle even with promotional ammunition and even better with match grade fodder.

Garandman, what sort of "target rifle" do you want? Are you going to be shooting in a match?

Well, my interest is in competing in highpower - AR, M1 M1A, all of which i already own. I'm looking for the .22 rimfire to have somethin I can practice with at 10m inside my garage all winter. Of course, I'll need a bullet trap and all. I'm looking for something with a match type stock, pistol grip (not like the AR's grip, but a decided "drop" in the stock) rear peep sight, blade type front sight, sling swivels. I'm NOT looking to compete with this rifle, but just to practice / train for highpower. And I'm only looking to spend about $350 or less.

Are there any peep sights available that clamp on to a .22's dovetail receiver mount?

Galyans has the 10/22 (wood stock) with a cheapo scope for $159. Without the scope for $139. GunLvr

Why not get an air rifle? You'd have less noise, no smoke, no need for a bullet trap, and dirt cheap ammo. Plus there are many models available with target sights, trigger and stock. Go here for advice: [url]http://www.midcoast.com/~pilkguns/bbs/wwwboard.html[/url]

Bad weather in South Carolina? I shoot all year long up here to your north... You really don't want to be firing a .22 in your garage at 10m, you don't have adequate air handling for all the dirty lead dust and powder residue. You need at least a 50' range to accomplish anything useful with a .22 target rifle anyways. Anything less than 50' is a waste of time. Get a single-cock spring air target rifle that fires .177 pellets or get a C02 air rifle for 10m. You won't be able to practice rapid fire, but you can't do that with most single shot .22 target rifles either. Aren't there any smallbore rifle clubs near your home? Most any town in the rust belt had them all over the place--even at high schools. I haven't seen any smallbore shooting clubs in North or South Carolina to speak of though. I guess lax restrictions on handguns and good weather throughout the year have shifted people's interests. BTW--Anschutz target rifles are the best. Champion Shooters has an entry level model, I think it is the M64 or something like that. It has a 5rnd. detachable magazine. It's not as accurate as their 1913 or whatever the latest is, but it would be a fun and inexpensive highpower trainer, even on an outdoor range at 50 or 100 yards.

Check out the Mossberg M44 from CMP. I have 2 and my brother has 2, you can't beat for them 95 dollars delivered. Half inch groups at 50 yds w/Eley Tenex. We shoot golf balls at 90 yds, its fun.
Link Posted: 10/22/2001 4:30:11 PM EDT
Ditto on the M44 from the CMP. They are very good shooting rifles and they already have the good target peep sights. For the money I don't know how you could beat them.
