    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.

    :thumbsup:

    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.

    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.

    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.
