Remington 597 magnum. I traded a guy out of one for a little motorcycle I didn't really want. I mean, heck, it was a gun with a scope. It's VERY accurate and reliable despite what some will say. Now, I don't really know what to HUNT with it, but it's great fun at the range, good 100 yard shooter, and ammo doesn't have to be reloaded, just leave the brass on the ground. :D

I am fond of a savage 93 I picked up used not to long ago. Bull barrel synthetic stock, and a scope.

Are you more interested in a bolt, lever or autoloader? Heck, they're ALL "good ones for fun"! Every last one :D.

my savage 93 in 22 WMR is one of the most pleasant-to-shoot guns i own. the accutrigger is amazing and it's just fun to shoot a gun that drives tacks like that. they don't break the bank, either. only downside is the somewhat expensive ammo. mine loves the hornady v-max.

with that said, there are plenty of other options, but if you enjoy running a bolt gun, i'd give the 93 a hard look.

I bought a Remington 597 WMR because I wanted a semi-auto. After some reading I've learned that I MAY need to tweak it for 100 percent functionality. That doesn't bother me.

.22 Mags in a semi-auto are less reliable. If that is not a critical issue, the world's your oyster. I do like the Ruger bolts...

^^^ Are you saying that one can't make a .22WMR S-A as reliable as a .22LR S-A or that rimfire S-A are less reliable in general? If the latter I guess you're probably right.

If you like lever actions, I do, then a Winchester 9422M is hard to beat. The main problem with those is they don't make them anymore. I have a 3x9 Bushnell rimfire scope on mine.
Another .22M I like is the Ruger 77/22. Classic lines, rotary mag, all in all, a very classy rig.

Got one almost just like yours, except no bipod. Love it. I did have to try various brands of ammo before I found the "sweet stuff" that mine likes... CCI Maxi-Mag.

Just to throw you for a loop, Marlin 57m, a short throw lever action, our and this is my current project a Marlin 1894m, if you can find one that is. I have 3 different Marlins in 22 mag and I life the tubular mag, find a few you can put you're hands on and see what you like.
PS I haven't heard of a "bad" 22mag rifle. Good luck.

I'll second the 9422M...and the Henry Golden Boy. My 9422M has been one of my all-time favorite rifles and the only one I own in .22 WMR. I have a Golden Boy in .22 LR that has also been an excellent rifle, and I have no reason to doubt that a GB in .22 WMR would be any different.

The former, and there is no guessing necessary... The potent .22 Mag long rimfire case is susceptible to failure in semi-autos, particularly extraction.

Just curious, Mike -- have you been experiencing any functionality problems with your 597?

Mine has been pretty solid thus far...

This is my 100 yard fun gun - a Marlin 982VS .22 Magnum. It's fitted with:

Karsten Kydex Adjustable Cheek Rest
Marlin Factory Scope Base
Warne 1” (Medium) Maxima Permanent-Attachable Weaver-Style Rings
Mueller APV Rifle Scope 4.5-14x 40mm (w/ 3" sunshield)
Harris S-BRM 6-9” Bipod


The cases in the inset photo were shot at 100 yards.

Nope... just one FTFire due to a bad primer. I haven't had mine very long though. I only have about 200 rounds through it. So far I see no need to apply any tweaks but I realize something may come up. We'll see.:)

My 597M is quite accurate and has worked perfectly since i bought it several years ago,

It has never failed to feed/fire/eject even one time and i haven't even cleaned it since i bought it!

If you got a little coin to spend the CZ Rifles are pretty slick looking. I handled a 22 lr with the mauser style sights, pretty sweet felt like a Rifle.

I traded for my 597 magnum, so it's a used gun. Not sure if there was anything done to it, doubt it, but it feeds CCI and Hornady just fine. It chokes on Winchester dynapoint, but that stuff is significantly weaker ammo than is the CCI and Hornady. I have the chronograph results somewhere to prove that. It's the ammo that chokes it. I stick to CCI for range work, cheap and effective and 1.5 MOA accurate at 100 yards.

The new CZ513 looks interesting. The CZ611 (not the 611A) is good. The Remington 597 and the old Marlin 922 are also good. The old H&R 700 had a good rep. I had 2 of the Ruger 10/22M's, one accurate and one reliable, but they're a little pricey now and there is zero factory support.

I've heard a good report on the Excel carbine and there was a company building AR7 clones in 22 mag. I wish I'd had the money for one of those. I think Volquarson made a 22 mag (10/22 clone) and I'd bet it was good.

Lots of stuff out there if you look around.

Mine is a Savage 24 .22 mag / 20 gauge combo. It's heavy, and has a lousy trigger, but shoots dime-sized groups at 50 yards. My favorite squirrel getter.

I've sort of been thinking about a bolt action .22 mag, but I'm going to see about downloading some .223 cartridges first.

I had a CZ 452 that I loved, that would be an excellent .22 Mag rifle.

I really like this thread since I too have been thinking about a .22 mag. What ammo do you like and why? Have you shot several brands of ammo and decided on one over the other? If you ahve more than one .22 mag, do you use the same ammo in both or the same?
