I would suggest a Ruger 77/22(bolt action) or a Ruger 10/22(semi-auto). They are both great rifles with losts of aftermarket support. A 22 is a great place to start. If you plan on doing any kind of rimfire hunting or 100yd to 200yd shooting, I would suggest stepping up to the 17hmr. It is a super accurate round. It is also more suited shooting at 100yds. You can get a box of 50 rounds for about $9. So it is a little more expensive than 22lr bulk ammo.

.22 is a dirty little round and it stops up Semiautomatics unless you clean them religiously, the semi is harder to clean than a bolt-action, for all the obvious reasons.

Since it's not a real issue either way, I'd suggest semiautomatic for varminting, unless you get to the point where you're snap-shooting things and the round goes through the critter's left eye socket at 150 metres.

How about a Marlin with the new T900 trigger group? They got plently of wooden and synthetic stocked rifles with heavy free floating barrels.

So does Savage, and niether breaks the bank.

The Ruger bolt actions are solidly made, but dang expensive!

The "bad" Canadian is on to something with his take on what you want to use the rifle for anyway, best think about that.

what about a Ruger 10/22
highly upgradable, so at a later date you could upgrade but for now you would have a nice and cheap affordable target gun

Unfortunatley living in Australia, i will never own a semi auto .22, not because I dont want to but because the law says law abiding citizens can't be trusted with them.

So I know a fair bit on good quality .22lr bolt rifles.

Any of these will serve you well, but if you are on a budget and want something that shoots really well I would go with the CZ

Hope this helps

Sorry, that's not entirely accurate. I let my 10/22 go without a bath for so long I was really starting to feel guilty, but it never hiccuped once. It's a good little gun :D .

I agree, though, that a .17HMR would be a much better caliber all-around.

I'll be buying a 10/22 then.
All my experiances on the firing line with semi-auto .22s is that they enjoy stopping up if not cleaned religiously.

Depends on the gun man, you can't be too general about things. We don't know anything about this Savage either, but I'd be looking to spend a little more...depending on what you hope to do with it. Pop cans at 50 meters and havin fun trying to him em at 100 meters? sure...Serious groups, ah, no.

Remember its model number and search it on the net, find reviews and look at rimfire forums, that will help you a lot more

The CZ web site RRP is between $420 and $445. Im sure you will get one much cheaper than that. They usually come with a great set of steel rings.

Great choice :D

Yeah they do, I have one I have had since I was about 13. It still shoots great, used to hit whistle pigs in the head at about 50 yds all the time as a kid. Tell you how old it is, it came with a fixed 4x by 15mm tasco scope. did not shoot bad though for a kids first rifle. Killed lots of squirrels too. Squirrels shredded and in crockpot all day is cheap food in college for sandwiches. Just dont tell the girlfriend it's not chicken, and all is well.

guess the definition of a good 22 to me is one that works all the time, is accurate enough for taking small game cleanly at 50yds, is easy to carry, and most of all is affordable, as you take them places you should not most of the time.

CZ has excellent rimfires and apparently does pretty well in the centerfire category as well - if you're ever looking for a handgun, CZ-75BD or CZ-75DAO all the way.
