I own the Ruger 10/22T with the bull barrel and have a Leupold VXII 4-12x40 on top of it, and a Harris ultra light bipod underneath it, and at 50 yards you can cover my ten shot group with a fifty cent piece. That will take care of all of my groundhog, rabbit, squirrel, and target shooting needs.

got to agree with paul on this one, i've got 3 10/22's one mag, one stock, and one that if my wife ask, i have less than 500 in, (closer to 2 500's), the mag is a great shooting gun not as accurate as i would have thought, but my only comparable gun to it is a ruger bolt action mag that will flat out shoot, the stock 10/22 is that way because it was a gift, and i prefer to leave it like i recieved it, the one that has been worked on, well i'll start by saying i love the 10/22's but if this had been my first taste of this gun i would have been highly disapointed, it was a good donor gun at best, the accuarcy was not there, the gun would fire and not cycle, the spring at the back of the trigger was messed up[:@], anyway i started buying parts for this gun, heavy flutted barrel, houge overmold stock, new trigger/group with titanium sear/hammer/and other parts, trigger at 1.5#, topped off with a leupold. i love this thing, and it gets shot more than anything else i own combined,but i couldn't sell it for what i have in it, but then again i don't intend to sell

sorry can't tell you much about the rem.

best of luck, oh yea!!! welcome to the forums

The 10/22 is an excelent gun , and accesories are cheap and abundant for it , that alone makes it a top pick , I bought mine for $120 , and put a bull barrel and stock on it for $100 . scope and triger job and its awesome . If I were to look at another 22auto , it would be the T/C , They are a nice little gun . For a bolt gun Id look at kimber big $s , or a CZ . For some reason I have not had much luck with the marlins , cant get good groups with them . Last trip to the range my friend was shooting a winchester auto, and it shoot great groups , but the triger was junk .

I don't know anything about the remington, but my 10/22 is magnificent. At 50 yards, that thing puts 30 rounds in a 1.5 inch hole. I love it to death. I have not done anything to it either...it is just out of the box. I would also recommend the Marlin 39A lever action...both are very fun to shoot with good accuracy.

As someone who still kils 1000 rabbits a year and used to be a full time rabbit catcher stay clear of any semi-autos, the ruger is probably the best auto but for price accuracy and reliability go for a brno/cz bolt action. I have 2 cz's a .22 with cut down barrel and moderator and a heavy barreled .17hmr both are excellent rabbit weapons.

for a semi auto .22 I would go with the Ruger 10/22 in the rifle version. I love my Ruger 77/22 though it will shoot a 1/2" group at 50 yards. It is very accurate with everything but stingers.

I sure HATE the way a 10/22 feels like a "beached whale" in my hands!! (I do have one) So, i choose a Rem. 552 as my fav semi auto 22 lr... (i also have one of these) and even though it's not as popular as the Ruger i do believe it's a better semi auto.. I've found that "out of the box", 552'stend to be moreaccurate than 10/22's too...

Don't like the rem 597s. 10/22s look, feel, and shoot like toys from the factory.

That said, I'm a huge fan of winchester 52s, remington 541s, Rem 581s, and from what I hear, CZs aren't too shabby either.
