Favorite was the Weatherby Mk22 tube feed, buttery smooth and so accurate. Definitely not best for the money though at today's prices. IMO half the fun of a .22 is having semi-auto so I gotta go 10/22 as well for bang for the buck

10/22 for fun and ability to trim it out how you like. 

For accuracy and still being affordable?  Try and find a CZ 452 FS or American.  Stupid accuracy and not too picky about ammo.

Marlin 39A lever. I have a 10-22 and it shoots great but the marlin is on a different  accuracy level. Ammunition does matter. Marlin's are around 600, Rugers on sale 300. Still have the Marlin 120 bolt I got for Christmas  when I was 12.

 For the money 10/22. Imo it should be one of the "guns every outdoorsman should own"

   For sheer fun lever guns are where its at Win 94/22 or Ruger 96. I wish I could get that one back.

Anyone ever tried the Winchester, Rossi, Savage, or citadel semi autos?

Lever actions are fun but all cost $300+ same as a ruger

I assume your speaking of the recent model/production "econo"guns ? If so I have not . If I were to pick one of those three to try I would go savage though .

You should be able to shop around a little and find a 10/22 for a shade under $300 .

By excluding bolt actions you are going to be looking mainly at semi-auto , most all other action types are generally more $$.

Dont be afraid to go used . Unless you are set on NIB....

show me where I can pick up a 39a for 600 and Iíd probably buy 2 of them. Canít believe how much marlins have gone up in the past couple years. Kicking myself for not grabbing one at the pawn shop for $400 several years back.

My cz 452 would be one of the last guns Iíd ever sell, though. I think I paid $280 for it, last one I saw was over $600Ö
you can still get gas in heaven, and a drink in kingdom come,
in the meantime, i'll be cleaning my gun

Ya, Marlins, 600 was more than a couple of years ago when I quit tracking.

I think they were three something when I started  looking, draging my feet, prices where going  up fast I was up in Colville and they were 420, and thought I better get of the fence, I thought  460 was high when I bought. Little did I know they would skyrocket. Look how much the Henry's have gone up

I think it is tough to beat a semi-auto 22 with a wood stock and iron sights.

I shot my friends fancy 10-22 and I'd rather shoot a beat up Marlin 60. They make great camp guns.

Toss it in with your camp gear and shrug if it gets a bump or scratch.

That to me is what 22s are all about. Backyard or camp shooting with friends and family.

So I wanted to buy my 8 year old grandson one for Christmas this year.  First "real" gun so semi autos were out.  Bought a Savage Mark II at Walmart in town for $150.  Got a base, had scope mounts and ordered a 3x9 off Amazon for 40 bucks (crosshairs can change colors form green to red so thought that would be cool for him).  Found an old brick of Federal 36 grain hollowpoints in the garage and sighted it in Saturday in the backyard.  I went on youtube and found how to adjust the crappy trigger pull-basically pulling apart the trigger assembly and cutting a coil off the spring.  Works great.  All in for about $220 and that is perfect for him
