Lopking for a low cost 22 rifle

I ran across these but thought I'd share it with others. I don't know anything about them but others might, and it just might be the ticket for someone on a fixed budget or somone wanting to get there kids interested in shooting. Sorry for the typo, hands are cold from shoveling snow.

This may not be in line with what you have in mind or you may have already considered it and passed, but IF you already have an AR rifle, have you considered a CMMG .22 long rifle conversion kit? These aren't a good fit for everyone but they keep you in contact practice training with your AR which can't be a bad thing overall.

These are easy to install and work well. If you shop around, they can be had for under $200.

I'd spend a few bucks more and get a Marlin 60.

The Armscorp .22 rifles I saw when I lived in Australia were junk. My gunsmith buddy had a barrel full of them that weren't worth fixing. He was going to use the barrels to make a gatling gun, don't know if he ever finished it.

That looks like the Squires-Bingham Model 20 I had years ago. I bought it at K-Mart for 39...49 bucks...something like that. It was a pretty good little rifle. Last time I saw it my son had it. He might still have for all that I know. I'll have to ask him next time I see him.

If I was particularly looking for a low cost 22 rifle, I'd pick up a copy of the local "trading post" type paper, and look for a used one. You can always find one in those.

I bought a Remington .22 cal. model 597 semi-auto, made in AMERICA, 10 round mag feed a few months ago at Cabelas for $159 + tax. My intent was getting a rifle that my wife and grandkids would enjoy and be safe with. Most important for young or inexperienced semi auto shooters, the bolt locks open when empty. The Ruger 10/22 doesn't, lock open when empty and costs some 50 to 80 bucks more. Walmart sells this rifle with scope, however I wanted to select a BSA Red Dot and also wanted iron sights, which the Walmart doesn't come with. I chose the composition stock over one with wood stock 'cause kids aren't too particular about dings on nice wood stocks.......yet anyway. I also added a 30 round mag which I load up before going out to shoot, especially during the cold weather months. You can also "dress" it up like a tactical rifle if you desire. It shoots cheap bulk shells which is very important with grandkids and a 30 round mag. and is very accurate. Give it a look and have fun selecting a rifle. There are lots of good ones out there, depending on what you want. I have a Henry lever action and love it if you decide to go with something other than a semi auto.
Shoot before you buy if possible.
Hope this helps.

I think the model 60 is by far the best you can do for cheap.

I think its more important to teach a new shooter to keep their finger off the trigger until they are ready to shoot than it is to have a bolt lock open on the last shot.

Savage, Marlin or Mossberg for low cost bolt guns.
In semi auto I would go Marlin or Ruger, maybe used for lower price.

A strong point to consider BEFORE you buy a .22 rifle is to consider if you will be using it to train yourself or other (children) in your family the concepts of rifle marksmanship. IF so, attending and participating in at least one APPLESEED Event (HIGHLY recommended) should be in your future.

If you think you will shoot in an Appleseed DEFINITELY get the Ruger 10/22. That is the rifle that is primarily used and what these training events are designed around.

Walmarts in our area have been offering a Mossberg semi-automatic with removable magazine for $110+/- made in Argentina. Seems like a good value to this point. Don't know how durable or repairable it will be.

This is probably the guts of their AR-15 look alike.

I am looking at the Remington 597 and was wondering about practice, since where I live .22 ammunition is still pretty tough to get. Has anyone played around with the LaserLyte Universal Mini Laser Sight for practice with the 597? Is that even a possibility? I'm pretty new to rifles. Thanks.

It's too close to the price of a Marlin or Ruger for me to consider it.

I keep buying Winchester 150 rifles whenever I run across one. Tube fed semi-auto that will shoot shorts, longs and long rifle interchangeably. Great little rifles.

Mossberg has issues with anything semi auto. They just don't do it right.
