Arrow Suggestions for a .22

I was thinking about getting a new .22 (rimifire). I was wondering what you guys thoughts are on a good one and what type scope you think would be good. I want to use it for some small game hunting (rabbits / squirrels) and plinking. I know the 10-22 has alot of different modifications and up grades available. I also though about the S & W M&P 15-22. Any input is always appreciated.

I have a Marlin mdl 60 in stainless and am not disappointed one bit. It is every bit as accurate as any other off the shelf 22 out there.

I've a savage MKII. It shoots very accurately...the trigger is a cinch to adjust. They're inexpensive, and work well. I'll say that I had feeding problems with mine, but it was from over-oiling the bolt and installing the bolt improperly. Easy fixes

Have you seen the prices on a Browning T-Bolt lately? That's if you can find one.

You can't beat a Ruger 10/22. For the money you won't get anything better.I would stay away from the Remington 597. Some like the Glenfield /Marlin M60.When I worked for a gunshop years ago that had a range. I saw several M60's with jamming problems.I had one until someone wanted more then I did. It jammed once in awhile. No if it was me looking I wouldn't look any further then the Ruger 10/22.

I love my Ruger 10-22 Sporter with Nikon 4x32 ProStaff scope on it although many squirrels and rabbits will disagree.

Its worth 5 bills. Kimber makes some nice ones too. BLR is a sweet ride also... Even CZ has a few dogs in the race.

10/22's are fun, you can tinker all you want with them. Although you wont regret owning a better rifle.
