    I'm in need of a decent .22 semiauto to get a new shooter started. I looked at a new Ruger 10/22 and was totally turned off by the plastic trigger. It wouldn't have to be a 10/22 (my preference) but a used rifle that would function and shoot accurate enough to learn with. I live in St. Charles County but will be in the central MO area next weekend. Thanks!
     
  2. Why not go with one of the Savage Mark II bolt actions? :shrug:

    I have one and have been shooting it for about 10 years still as accurate as the day I bought it for $100 dollars new

    :cheers:

    Check out the Marlin Model 60. semi auto and very reliable.

    Thanks for the advice, I'll check out the Model 60 on Gunbroker as I'm not familiar with it. I agree that a bolt action would be a better trainer but in this case it has to be a semiauto. I'm footing the bill so if I could get a used one or private sale to save a few bucks sales tax that would be helpful.
     
  5. I think that the local Wal-Mart had the Mark II for $137 I think

    :cheers:

    the model 60 is about the same price range and can also be found at Wal-Mart. Cabela's has one with a blue and gray laminate stock with stainless. (if you're into that sort of thing)

    You can get an aftermarket trigger group for the 10/22.

    Thanks for your advice, I purchased a Marlin Mdl. 60 at Wally World for $147.00. I could not find a used 10/22 without the plastic trigger and painted metal.

    Don't be turned off by the polymer trigger assembly on the 10/22. They funtion great and are very strong. Model 60s are nice as well. Along with the savage bolt actions.

    I have a mossberg semiauto from walmart, once you get pass the trigger slack it'll shot pretty good. Gave just over $100 for it. Put a Simmons 22 mag scope and have less than $150 and it will shoot tree rats all day long, and ride on the ranger or sportsman and i don't have to worry about anything happening ot it.
