    I will freely admit I am a handgun guy. But, I want to add a .22 rifle to my mix. This will be used for fun, maybe a little hunting. A fun, accurate rifle.

    So, I am asking input, with a few basic ground rules:

    1) No 10/22's, Marlin 60's or 795's, great rifles not what I am looking for.
    2) Bolt action or lever action only.
    3) Forged receiver, if it is not steel, not looking.
    4) Accurate, under 1" at 50 yrds from a rest.
    5) Current build, or still easy to find.
    6) $500 - $700 rifle only, I will pick a scope after I pick the rifle.
    7) NO "AR" type rifles.

    So, what do you suggest?

    Savage Mark IIBV. Look no further. It's only around $300 and you can spend the rest of the money on scope, bipod and ammo.

    CZ.

    If you can skip this requirement, an old Mossberg 44 or 144 would be a good one. A remington 513 would be another good candidate.
    1. They are very accurate.(match rifles).
    2. They aren't all that well known and demand isn't very high for them.
    3. Have target aperture sights.

    If I were to set out to buy a manual-action .22 rifle, with a decent budget, this is where I'd start:

    Weatherby/Anschutz Mark XXII at an after-Christmas sale. http://www.weatherby.com/product/rifles/markxxii
    Or get an Anschutz-branded gun http://www.championshooters.com/Anschutz-sp.htm
    CZ 453 with the single-set trigger http://cz-usa.com/products/by-category/rifles/
    Marlin 39A -- the most fun higher-end .22 currently made http://marlinfirearms.com/Firearms/22Rifle/Golden39A.asp

    (Actually, I already have two 39s, so I, personally, would be looking at the bolt guns, but note that I bought two 39s first.YMMV)

    I'd consider a Remington Model 504. It's a nicely finished, accurate little bolt-action rifle that, though discontinued, can still be found in the $400.00 neighborhood in terms of price. I like mine a lot.

    My brother owns one of these. It is a great shooter both through the iron sights and the 4x12 scope.

    In the 500-700 range I would look for a used Anschutz, Winchester 75, and Remington 513 or 541. If you want a new rifle the CZ 452 is impossible to beat.

    I don't know how accurate they are, but I think a .22 Golden Boy would be lots of fun to shoot.

    I have a Mossberg M44, and it is tons of fun for me. I'd love the CMP to find some more, just so I can get another one or two for kids that I don't even have yet.

    I collect older model Remington 512 of various names and love them, just somthing about the quality during that time period. But if you where looking for somthing new in a bolt I would look to CZ!
