    I am looking tfor a quality semi-automatic .22 plinker with decent accuracy at 50yds. If the mags are reasonable, even better. What is out there? Thank you all and God Bless America.

    There is the 10/22 and the Marlin 60, which is more value for the money? Any others I should know about. Thanks.

    Just curious, why are you hung up on a semi? My personal recomendation is a Marlin 39a, lever action. It will shoot almost as fast as a semi once you get used to it. I'm saving my nickels for one now.

    I like both the Ruger 10/22 and the Henry lever gun for less than $250 plinkers.

    Love to have a Marlin 39, but me oh my! They are pricy.

    well, i ain't exo, but my brother paid $420 for one, it holds 19 LR rounds in the tube, and it came with a scope rail for both 3/8 dovetail and full size picitinny.

    For a cheap semi auto, rem 512, mags are fair, and better trigger than the stock 10/22

    I have lever .22's, but for pure plinkin pleasure you'd have to spend alot more to get more accuracy than the Marlin 60 offers. Experiment with different brands to get the best groups.
