The Savage Mark IIis heavy at 7 1/4 pounds, a plastic trigger guard, not many mods can be done to them unlike the Ruger. The bolt action is good for a kid just learning to shoot. The Remington 597, well enough has been said about its problems. Marlin model 60 great all around reliable shooter. Best bang for the buck is the Ruger 10/22!

Just wondering,Do you want a semi? Bolt? Paper puncher? Hunter? All of the above?what is your budget?As said above everybody should have at least one 10/22.The remmie Speedmasters are hard to beat, Browning semi ? What can I say all time classic and favorite.Bolts? How about a Anschutz If you are looking for just a good paper puncher I have a Remington 540X I might part with.It is a single shot,Looks like something they use in a Biathalon(sp.)If on a tight budget look around for an old bolt action .You can get older Remington bolts for anywhere from $75.00 to "You have got to be kidding me" rimfire central is a good source of information JMHO

The 10/22s nowhave plastic trigger guards as well, FWIW.

If you want accurate for under $500, get a older remington 513,540-series, 580 series, or Mossberg bolt action. If money is no object, a Winchester 52 or Anschutz is king. For a semiauto, the 10/22 can either be the best plinker or the biggest money-pit depending on what you want to use it for. The Marlin 60 is a great gun, as for the remington 597- been there, done that, got the t-shirt to prove it, and will probably never buy another new remington product because of it[:@]

I probably got a lemon of a rifle, mine wouldn't fire through an entire magazine without a jam, nomatter what ammo I used. Ibought one o fhte earlier ones when they first came out. A lot of people these days seem to do well with them, but I feel like I got a rifle that Remington was 'beta testing' on consumers rather than working out the problems before it hit the market. My experience with it was enough to sour me on 597s and remington in general ever since.

Edit: a friend of mine just picked up a 597 as his first .22 rifle against my advice last week. He really likes its accuracy, but he also said that at least he's getting a lot of practice at clearing FTF jams.
