You may be able to find the Winchester Wildcat for that as well.

Ive recently gotten a wildcat and really enjoy it and I think its a pretty good deal if you can find one on sale.

No, stay away for the damn relabeled Russian rifle and

GET A TULA TOZ 78
AKA winchester "wildcat"
why

Its a $100 cheaper, has the adjustable trigger, flip site, hooded target site and longer stock. You can upgrade to those on a wildcat... and pay more, or buy russian and not relabeled russian

While I don't have access to it right now, I've gotten a lot of enjoyment out of my Marlin. It was about 120 USD two years ago.

The Tula may have a cheaper list price, however you are much more likely to find the Winchester on sale. I paid $99 for mine new. The rifles are the same (essentially) and either will give great service.

I just picked up a Marlin 981T recently and finally got to the range with it last Friday. Shot great. I like the tube magazine that can take shorts, longs or long rifles. Holds 17 long rifles. It's also easy to use as a single shot. Great rifle for around $200 new.

Around $200 you can get a good deal on older, USA made .22 rifles. Carefully check out the used guns. You should lots of choices in a sturdy bolt-action for that.

I would look at a used marlin 80 or 81 series, they are 75 years old now; any of the old ones, came with a variety of woods, some with peep sites-the dl versions, and they could shoot short, long, or long rifles. Same with the older verision model 25's. if not that, look for a russian Izhmash Biathlon basic; straight pull bolt, that is very reliable, and Olympic accurate.
also look for a new Remmy model 5, or any old remmy bolt action, should be good.

+1 I love my toz 78-3 Its very accurate, feeds anything, and absolutely loves Federal bulk pack (about 1/2" - 3/4" groups at 50 yards) This plus an adjustable trigger (set nice and crisp) make it a hell of a deal for the $100-150 they sell for.

TNgun was for a while, now think sswaffenduech or something picked up the contract, you can actually google tula and search for their US distributor.

I would look for a good used gun. I picked up a Glenfield model 25 bolt action at a pawn shop for $55 and I wouldn't trade it for anything. Great shooter and it was in very nice condition too. Deals are out there - no need to spend $200 on a new one unless you just want to.

I agree................and with winter coming on I enjoy having an old rifle as a project gun.

thanks for all the help. i am really liking the idea of a tube fed bolt gun. i think i will shop around and go used.

remember, if you cannot find it used, as in the older marlin 81's, get a new 81, now called a 981...

CDNN has the Winchester Wildcat for $170 and the heavy barreled version of the same for $199. I bought one of each last week.

I'd look used too. I got this Stevens 46 from a buddy who's since passed away, but it's a great little shooter, and I doubt it would sell for even close to $100.00 on a used rack.

It's just an example of what's out there. Bolt action 22's used to be just about everywhere. Remington, Winchester, Savage, Marlin, Stevens, Sears, Revelation and a few dozen other brands probably.

I looked for used .22s around here for a couple of months and just kept getting pissed at the prices, singles shots were going for more than $100. That is why I broke down and bought the Wildcats for less than I could find a used rifle.

Which is why I'm hanging on to my old Mossbergs! :)

I have the savage with the accutrigger that i bought from wallyworld for less than $175 out the door a couple of years ago. i know you can still get them sub-$200 OTD, and it has performed flawlessly. I use it to plink, kill those damn prairie dogs, and harvest a rabbit or ten a year.

RUT. I hear ya. I have two Mossberg 46's One with the original scope and one with the peep sights. I got one as a gift from my dad as a kid and then when my grandfather passed, he had the same model, with scope in the back of his closet.

They both shoot great, but the scoped rifle fell over and bumbed the scope and now it shoots high. Uggg. :banghead::( I will have to remount the scope and sight it in again since I am out of elevation adjustment on the scope. It is fixable at least.

Yup, same here. Well almost.... one's a 46B(a) and the other's a 146B(a). Both great shooters!
