I am looking to buy a bolt action .22LR. I doesn't have to be a match grade tack driver, as I really just want a really quiet rifle to use with a suppressor. I will be using a red dot on the gun and would like something as compact as possible. A 16" barrel with blued/black finish, synthetic stock, and detachable mags would be ideal.

Well this doesnt meet your critia too much , but id look into the CZ .22lr bolt guns, they are very nice and well made and pretty accurate. THe wood finish is some of the nicest ive seen. Other than that I only know about 10/22s.

It's not a synthetic stock gun, but have you considered one of those Romanian trainers?

I don't have any experience with one but what about a Savage MK II. The barrel is longer than what you want but you could always have a good smith shorten it for you. You'd probably have to get it threaded anyways. The price is right.

Savage MKII

The Savage is the only one I have actully looked at in person, but it looks prety close to what I need.

If you go with the MKII have the smith cut and rechamber for a match chamber while your getting all the other work done. I've heard the MKII's suffer in the accuracy department because of the sporter chamber they have.

Look into a Marlin 81ts. It is a bolt action, synthetic stocked rifle. It has the tube under the barrel that holds 17 LR, and like 25 shorts. Very nice. Gun. I've had mine for 3 years and have had no malfunctions. Does 1/2" at 50 with CCI greentag. Only cost like $180 at a high priced hardware store.

dont know how much it is but maybe the Ruger 77/22? just an idea
Link Posted: 3/21/2006 4:50:53 PM EDT
don't forget the older guns. I have a Remington 581. Got it for $137 + taxes. Very accurate.

I know the older winchester and mossberg rifles are also very accurate. Check around you might find a good deal.

The CZ-452 Silhouette and Style models have synthetic stocks:

Silhouette

The Style is just the Silhouette with a Nickel finish. For the money they can't be beat.

ETA: The 5 round magazine is standard, but 10 rounders are available.

Good luck.

The CZs are great. For a compact gun look at the Scout. It does have a little bit shorter stock so if you are a big guy it might be a little small. Marlins are great shooters on the cheap end. A quality used gun might be a good choice too. If you want the shorter barrel you can have it cut down when you have it threaded as long as it doesn't have a tube mag.

I got two of them and they are HEAVY and single shot rifles. The iron sights can be found but are getting expensive. Figure on another $200 or so for the Redfield International and the Olympic front. The two I got were in great shape. I got one before the price drop from $299 to the current $225 and they were both about the same great shape. I'm sure they have some lesser condition ones, but I did great on both pulls!! There can't be too many left at the CMP. Here's a pic of my last one:


I wish I had gotten a couple of the Mossberg 144 rifles before they ran out. Those were mag fed and lighter overall......snooze and lose. I do have a couple Mossberg 44US rifles though and they are pretty close to the 144 from what I can see.

Since it does not appear you are too critical or specific, I would check out Wally World if possible as they tend to have a few of the more common ones at a very good price.

I got a MKII FV heavy barrel from wally world and it will drive tacks...$180ish.

I went with a CZ 452 Silhouette. It has detachable mags (5 and 10 rounders) and a synthetic stock.

It's on the way to Mark McWillis to be cut to 18" and threaded at the moment. I'll post some pics when it gets back.

Mark told me that some of the Marlin rifles can't be threaded because the trigger hanger stick out too far from the receiver to put them in the lathe. Something to consider. I don't know about Savages.

I was pretty much thinking the same thing. The truth of the matter is if that MKII's chamber was recut to match grade and the muzzle got a decent crown it would probably produce groups half that size or better at 50 to 60 yards.

I might have to get one of those MKII's as a project gun just to see what it can do with a little work.

check out your local gun shop for a used Remington 512 - accurate, cheap, magazine fed. you can always cut the barrel down and paint the stock to suit your needs.

i wouldn't dare do that to mine though - lol
