Well really I don' t know why you wouldn' t want one. Probably the best semiauto 22 on the market for the price. Plus you can acessorize to your hearts content. Whatever you do stay away from the Remington 597. It is pure crap.

Well it depends on what you want the rifle for and expect of it. Savage and Marlin both make a good budget to mid $200' s rifle. CZ makes a great .22 bolt but the price is going to be a little higher. http://www.czusa.com Thompson Center has two .22 semi' s out now, the Classic http://www.tcarms.com/tc22classic/index.html and the Benchmark Classic http://www.tcarms.com/22benchmark/index.html . I havn' t shot the Benchmark but have shot the Classic and like it a lot, would love to try out the Benchmark. Kind of hard to over look the Ruger 10/22 though. There is so much that can be done with this rifle. Good luck to ya' and let us know what you get.

I would still go with the ruger 10/22. You just can' t beat it. If you want it to be different from your brothers, go stainless.

Look at the Marlin model 60. You can get it in Stainless and Synthetic. It' s tough to beat and I' d put it up against any 10/22. Plus, you get 15 shots with it' s tube magazine vs. 10 with the magazine fed 10/22 (unless you pay the big bucks for high capacity magazines). I' ve had both rifles. The Marlin 60 is still shooting quarter size groups with 15 shots after 3 years of shooting. The Ruger 10/22 Target was sold after the first 5 months. (3 of those 5 spent back at the factory fixing the stinkin' trigger).

Join your brothers. Get a Ruger 10/22. You won' t regret it. Like Frizzelr said stay away from the Remington 597.

If you' re looking for an affordable rifle straight from the box, take a look at the CZ' s. My CZ will shoot right with my much more expensive 22 bolt rifles. For accuracy I' d stick with a bolt and pass over any of the 22 autos. Although an auto can be fun to play with.
