One of the nicest older .22LR bolt-actions. I found one at a gun show about 15 years ago and absolutely LOVE it! It's my go-to, around the house, varmint rifle. It's taken several woodchucks, red squirrel "bird feeder" robbers, skunks, etc..
Still considering, stopped by the LGS last weekend, but pickins were slim. Also, got some financial liability to get taken care of first, so not sure when it will happen, but if/when I get it, I'll be sure to share.
I have one just like it, even with receiver sights. One of my favorite plinker/informal offhand target rifles. JP
I would scour used offerings and IF noting was available in My price range ,go with a Savage . Savage is one SAVOY Firearms manufacturer ,again IMO .
It may not fully realize your accuracy expectations, but bedding the receiver and floating the barrel well can make it shoot nicely. Savage has a reputation for making good barrels. Stocks and metal finish aren't anything to brag about.
The worst-shooting rifle I've had was a Savage semi-auto, but I'd never shot for groups until the bore was about shot out. The target at 25 yards looked more like a sieve than a shot group.
my favorite bolt .22 is a hand me down Remington 512... i learned to shoot on it, it's still accurate, more sentimental than CZ accurate though.
