If you are not in hurry, you will be able to find one of these for about $200 used.

Not sure on pricing but the BSA has been switching to Savage. Rock solid. I am having fewer problems than I ever had before and they get shot a lot.

Savage Mk2 is a nice .22 bolt gun. Inexpensive and accurate.

Another option is to find a nice used Win 67A with the Lyman peep sights. They are stone reliable (single shot) and very accurate.

It's going to cost more than your budgeted $200.00, but, find a Remington 541-S or 541-T.

You will NOT regret spending the $$$.

I paid $330.00 (NIB) for my 541-T, when they were first re-introduced.

Agreed. I got this Accu-trigger model for just under $200 including shipping and FFL transfer.

I bought it to teach my nephew's son about rifle shooting, but I've had fun shooting it, as well.

No need for a heavy barrell in a bolt .22, they don't get warm. Just MHO. ;)

Get an old heavy one from a gun show or store. The new ones feel like cheap junk.

I've got the Savage Mark II GXP non accu trigger model.

Got it from dicks over the holidays for ~$150. Bought an extra mag, a sling, and a UTG bipod and spend right around $200. Seriously loving it.

Savage all day. I paid a bit more than $200 for mine. But for the price or close you can't beat it.

I believe the Savage bolt 22's have improved as of late, but they were definitely a PITA for reliable feeding when they were first introduced.

Bought a Savage 17hmr bolt rifle a few years ago, and I've been very satisfied with that......especially the "accu-trigger".....great invention.

I've had a half dozen Marlin bolt 22's, and they are very well designed, and stand up to continual use. Don't know how good they are since the company has sold to Remington.

One very good old Marlin is the 880sq. They don't make it anymore, but it's an excellent shooter, accurate and reliable.

Love my 541-T. Tack driving beast.

Big CZ fan here. .22 actions as smooth as glass. You can find them cheap if you're willing to scour the earth for them, but I think they're well worth it.

Marlin vote here. I've owned several. All great shooters.

CZ Scout, about $250 but worth it.

Another vote for the Savage MKII. Mine is very accurate, and lucky for me is accurate with several of the cheaper .22 choices.

It shoots CCI Blazer into a ragged hole, but is still plenty accurate with the average bulk pack.

Get a pre-owned CZ 452. Feels like a full-sized gun, and many rimfire rifles feel like toys.

This. CZ bolt actions are the bees knees. I shoot benchrest and I have one that shoots nearly as well as my Anschutz 64. For the money, they're fantastic.

ABSOLUTELY you should get a Savage Mark II. Its nice to see people with them on this thread ( having recommended the rifle to THEM on this forum now they're recommending - nice nice nice ! Like ER, See One - Do One - Teach One!)

I also have a Savage Mark II GXP .22LR - no AccuTrigger but that's okay because when I bought it I didn't even know what an AccuTrigger was.

It came with a GREAT combo scope , Bushnell Rimfire 3-9x40mm scope , and it was list price $199.99. As I have detailed several times at length on here , I simply asked " Can I get this for the sale price of $149 even though the sale isn't running now?" when the counter jockey said no, I whipped out the iPhone and dialed up Dicks corporate and asked them. They said Hellas yeah no problem! And not only that the store mgr gave me 10% off all extras and accessories I bought that day too.

You CANNOT go wrong with the Savage Mark II. I put a Nikon ProStaff 4-12x40mm BDC on mine and now its about the most accurate thing you could shoot. Amazing and so much fun to shoot.

Wow. That is complimentary to the CZ.

Another vote for a marlin 22. I have one with the target barrel. It's a little heavier but it shoots very well. I did like the savage my buddy owns though. I don't think you could go wrong with either one.

I just picked up the new Marlin XT22TR tube fed bolt action. I put about 300 rounds through it this weekend without issue. A very light, very accurate very packable bolt action .22. No silly magazine floating below you and it holds 25 Short/19 Long/17 Long Rifle. I haven't decided if I want to scope it or not. I was keeping quarter sized groups at 50 yards but I wasn't using appropriately sized targets so my sight picture was likely changing.

I've also owned the Model 60 which I can certainly recommend for semi autos.

Another Marlin XT22 fan here. I picked one up for my son for xmas, and we love it.

Wow. That is complimentary to the CZ.

Very! Although a 64 is not in the same octagon as a 54, it is still a sound platform for modestly priced accuracy. The best USBR target i've shot with the CZ is a 240 9X, and the 64 is a 244 11X. The 64 will win more times than not, but on any given day the CZ is capable of outshooting it. My 10/22 has shot a 224 8X, respectively.
