Lately I've been thinkin on what to get myself for Christmas this year. So far I keep wavering between the .357 Taurus I passed over last year and something in .22 Mag.

I would like to know who makes what, and what can be had for under $500ishfor the .22 Mag?

Off the top of my head theres the Remington 597, Marlin 925M, Henry H001M.
One's a semi, one's a bolt, one's a lever.

CZ 452s of various varieties too. I like the Lux.

everybody makes a 22 mag, with the marlin probably being the best of the bolts, for semiauto , there are only three to look at. cz, brno 611 or 611a, and excell arms, bullpup style. nwo you can also find , in the used rack a amrlin mag fed semi auto that looks like a copy of a cross between an m1 garand and a 30 carbine.

I love my Marlin 882SS. I've used it for countless squirrels and two years ago it dispatched a diseased fox wandering around near my house. Fun gun. Mine is topped with a 4x Bushnell scope.

I have a Savage Model 93. I like shooting it better than any 22LR because it doesn;t feel like a pellet gun and takes small game easily, but ammo expense is almost as much as I pay for .38 or .45. Extremely accurate for a $115 setup with cheap glass.

I'm very happy with my Ruger All Weather 77/22 Magnum. They have several models available in .22 WMR, I've read a lot of nice things about the VBZ's with the laminated stocks and gray finished stainless. I cannot however recommend a 10/22 in .22 WMR, I had one with problems serious enough that Ruger replaced it. Say what you like about Ruger and their politics, that's customer service.

The 22wmr is a great shooter. There is enough versatility in available ammo to plink / target, hunt small game or varmints with. I've tried and shot just about every brand (except for ossi). Not all 22wmr ammo is created equal.
Top shelf stuff imo would be CCI tnt, Rem psp, Winchester super-x 40 jhp(the workhorse). PMC makes cheap 22wmr and is good stuff, alot better then that DynaTurd Winchester markets. The Supreme jhp @ 34gr's is an evil little round. The Rem v-max is 33gr, quite accurate but I have found it's poi to be high from sighting in with other ammo, btw it is not a boat-tail - there is no such animal as a 22wmr boat-tail.
Oh yeah CCI now manufactures 22-wmr for Federal & Remington.

Last Novemeber I bought a taurus pump action .22 Mag (copy
of the old Winchester .22wrf) with 16 inch barrel. I have been
taking it to my uncle's place on the mountain more than any
other gun. They had them with longer barrels, too. Not bad
except for the "lawyer saety" on top of the bolt useful only
to block the firing pin while unloading.

I'll second that. I am not a fan of Ruger products in general, but I have a 77/22 Magnum target model, with the grey stainless finish. It is very accurate for a production gun, and will easily to 1 inch groups at 100 yards when shooting off an improvised rest.
