So... I like to have a scoped .22 bolt-action rifle in my safe for shooting holes in small objects at short ranges Background - I have a Marlin 880SS which I got about 15 years ago. In an effort to shoot ever smaller groups at 25 yards, I've tried several triggers - from polished stock components to Rifle Basix and Jard - but none really worked as advertised. I also free-floated the factory stock after trying one from Boyd's that I really liked... but it didn't allow for bolt removal (the trigger wouldn't move back far enough) so I moved it on. Overall it shoots decently well but has always left me feeling that there's more potential elsewhere, as I feel I've done all I can to improve the trigger in particular. Anyway, fast-forward to the present. My eldest is nearing the age where I need to start shooting instruction. I'll start with pellet, move to .22, etc. I prefer to go with iron sights at first, which has gotten me to consider removing the scope from the 880, going with the iron sights, and getting a completely new rifle to mount the Nikon on. I sort of have two in mind - I shot a Savage MkII years ago that had an accutrigger that I thought was really nice. I also have heard good things about the CZ 457 though that seems considerably more spendy and I've never handled one myself. Anyway - I'm curious what the community might recommend. I have no problem with buying used (I often prefer it actually), and lets pretend that budget is important For the 10/22/Marlin 60 guys, I do NOT want a semi-auto at this point. Any input appreciated!
