    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.

    I don't know about the OP -- but this thread has me itching for a .22 mag bolt-gun... :p
