Guns Like firearms themselves, there's a wide variety of opinions on what's the best gun.

Suggestions for a .22

I just looked on gunsamerica and Browning must be making the T-Bolt again. I didn't know that until I saw one in 17HMR. I have one of the originals before they were discontinued.They were getting real pricey.Mines a T-II which has checkering. NIB unfired.

the ruger if you want a no nonsense get the job done kind of rifle you can turn into anything you ever dreamed but if you want a classy tack driver get a kimber they sure are pretty and have an accuracy guarantee( i believe but dont quote me on that)

Ruger 10/22. It's accurate, has a good stock...
Ours has been in the family for twenty years, not a nick or scratch on it. Still looks new! I suggest an aftermarket clip, though, if you're plinking with it. Spray 'n pray semi auto?

Not necessarily a good sign

I have a beef with the 10-22. I took in a used one some years ago. the first thing I do when I take in a used gun is clean it up. 'Owner disassembly,' according to the owner's manual, doesn't even get the bolt out. My opinion is the gun can't be properly cleaned if the bolt isn't coming out, especially with some of the dirty burning .22 ammo out there. And this one was filthy.

Well, I figured out how to get the bolt out, and got it all cleaned up real good. Problem is, it's one of those deals that takes three hands and a few extra fingers on top of that to get it back together.

Dunno your cleaning preferences, but you might want to take this into consideration.

I've got both the marlin 60 and ruger 10/22 and out of the box the marlin beat the 10/22 but the 10/22 can be customized and made into a sweet little tack shooter

Probably not a more user friendly gun to work on for the "shade tree " gunsmith on the planet than the 10/22. Its a tinkerers gun for sure.
There are a whole lot of 'better made' guns than a 10/22 but for the money they work.

I have a 10/22 and a Savage MKII BV.I like the BV more but the Ruger is a nice little gun to.The Ruger 77/22 is excellent but costs a good deal more.Others I'd look at are any of the CZ 452 models.

I have a Ruger 10-22 with a Tapco stock, Reflex sight, and Butler Creek 25-round mags and have way too much fun with it.

Look around and find the older Marlin Model 60 with the 2" longer barrel. I found one locally here for $100 in stainless. They look good and will shoot circles around a 10/22 out of the box.

I bought my son a 10/22 and it is a good gun, but if you are just looking for something to shoot as is the Marlin M60 is hard to beat.

And I would 10 times rather load the 15 round tube magazine than the 10 round magazine that comes with the Ruger.
