    Savage MK II. Cheap and accurate. I shoot mine at the OTC in Colorado Springs, and it will put 60 consecutive shots into 3/8" at50m (the size of the Olympic ten ring for 50m rifle).

    Not bad for a $120 rifle.

    It currently lives in a Boyd's Tacticool stock as seen below.

    10/22 with a Kidd barrel, Kidd trigger group, and Hogue stock, plus some elbow grease and sand paper to make it cycle smoother. Had lots of 10/22's over the years, but none, come remotely close to this setup.

    One with ammo in it is the best one....Really though, I have 10/22's and will NEVER knock them but I did just buy a S&W 15-22 and I have to admit it has been dead reliable and the funnest rifle I have bought or shot in a long,long time.:thumbup:

    Dang you Jluck this was an easy answer until you brought up the S&W 15-22. That is one seriously fun 22! I still prefer the 10/22 mod if I'm shooting wasps, but other than that, it's a close call.

    For practical use, hard to beat the Ruger 10/22 take down. Put a scope on it and you can have fun plinking to 100 yards.
    Most accurate straight out of the box for me is the Browning T-Bolt.

    I'm a huge fan of the savage MKII and 93, great bolt action rimfires. If you like pumps the remington 572 is a awesome option

    What I'd like to have in the future:
    Savage Mark II-FV-SR because it will be a good suppressor host.
    M&P 15-22 as others have said it would be fun and I could put a suppressor on it.
    CZ455 because they are accurate, the wood stock is very nice, and I can change between a 22LR barrel and a .17 barrel

    Henry lever action .22lr = too much fun and almost boring accuracy at iron sight ranges.

    I can't decide, but I love all of mine, Marlin Model 10 Single shot bolt action, Browning SA22, Ruger 10/22 with a cheapo scope and a 1907 J stevens pump. Probably a toss up between the SA22 and the Marlin Model 10

    I am 57 and have owned a 22 since I was 10. I cannot list all the ones I have owned over the years. My favorite is the Marlin 39A. It is reliable, great shooting and very accurate. It will shoot S,L and LR ammo. I own two now and have owned 2 others as well. The first one I got was when I was 14. I shot it so much that it completely wore out by the time I was 18. You could close the action and the lever would just fall down about 2 inches due to slack and wear. I would get a brick of 500 rounds for Christmas and another for my birthday on Feb 28th and I would buy all that I could afford in between. There must have been over 5000 rounds per year run through this gun and it was carried all over the woods and farm. I sent it back to Marlin and it was completely rebuild, re-blued and returned at no cost. It was and still is a great gun and a great company.
