    I ordered a Ruger American Rimfire .22 compact yesterday from Bi-mart for $260. They've gotten great reviews and thats gives me the option of giving my Daughter my tube fed Marlin bolt in .22, she's 8 and said she wanted a gun that shoots 20 bullets.:D

    I've got my eyes on one of those too - possibly in .22 mag if I can ever find some ammo.

    A lot of people don't know that Bi-Mart has a thick catalog to order out of and the $ you can save is big.

    I've got the .22 mag carbine great rifle thought about getting a .22lr with a threaded barrel to replace the savage fvsr but decided against it. the savage shoots great with a suppressor on it.

    It might be hard to pass a threaded one up if if I saw it on the shelf.

    They don't stock the Ruger Americans on the shelf and I don't know why, they would fly off the shelves for sure. But it is easy to order one.

    My dad bought one of these rifles a month or so ago in 17 hmr to get rid of crows and stuff on the property. The thing is a tack driver.

    I own a small shop. I can usually stay with them on most special order rifles price wise. I sell the Ruger American Rimfire for the same price, $260. Where they tend to beat up on me is on items they stock and sell at lead/loss sales (like their 10/22's). For those items, I'm honest and generally send people to Bi-Mart. The people at our local one are nice and very helpful. They send people to me and I do likewise.

    I will say its nice to try to shop local if you have a good local gun shop. If they can get you the gun at the same price, then they could probably use the business.

    It will be better with quality ammo and shooting from a bench.

    I have a Ruger American in .308, and I can do -1MOA groups with it, if I do my part.

    It's not a super fancy kit out of the box, but it has everything you need (sans scope & rings) to git 'er done!

    You won't regret it. I giggled the first time I shot my savage FV-SR with my SS Sparrow. It was astonishingly quiet.
