I had a 10/22 that ran perfectly well. Why would I need a bolt .22?

Then I got a suppressor. My perspective changed when I realized that the noisiest thing about a suppressed 10/22 was the action. So I went on the hunt for a bolt .22. I settled on the Ruger American Rimfire. I'm kind of a Ruger fan, and sure liked the idea that I could use all of the 10/22 mags that I'd bought over the years. No need to buy new mags? Sign me up!

As luck would have it, a buddy of mine and I went out to shoot .22s one day, he he brought along his RAR, but his was the Target model. As much as I like my RAR, and I most assuredly do, his was clearly more accurate than mine.

So when I sold a pistol a couple of weeks ago, I took the cash straight to the same dealer where my buddy had bought his and, lo and behold, a rifle just like his. I had to have it.

I'm still waiting on my scope, but I can't wait to shoot it!
Those are all beautiful guns. I really like the Ruger American Rimfire and an attractive rifle like that really turns this wood loving girl's head. ;)

I have a CZ455 like the OPs, wonderful shooter, got rid of my Ruger American and Savage MKII because the CZ out shot both with a wide range of ammo ranging from bulk to RWS.

After seeing some of these two two rimfire`s posted, i dont even feel mine are worthy of posting.

Nothing special: :(
1) Ruger American 22 Carbine (this one is a tack driver!)
2) Ruger 1022 (i have a few, they just run flawless)
3) CZ (still waiting to find the right one, then i`ll buy one)

Wonder how many of the responders have experience with multiple makers and models or limited experience?
I don't really have a whole lot of experience with different makes and models. As a teenager in the high school rifle club and team we shot some sort of Remington bolt actions. Back in the 90s for three years in the RI Small Bore Rifle League I shot a Model 52 with a Unertl scope on it. Other than that my Ruger 77/22 is the only bolt action that I've fired. When I bought it, I had actually thought about buying one of the Model 52s that Browning was making, but went with the Ruger because of my experience with their other products, and the much lower cost. :)

Biggest gun trade mistake i ever made was when i traded my Ruger 77/22 for another gun MANY YEARS ago. It had the most beautiful highly figured walnut stock i had ever seen. It was also the most accurate 22 i ever owned to date. Sometimes we just do dumb things. Been kickin myself ever since. You cant even buy this gun from Ruger anymore with the wood this gun had. I hope one day, when the gun shows come back around, i might get lucky and find a nice enough one to buy.

I fall into the 'limited experience' category. The 10/22 in my post was my 12th Birthday Standard Issue .22, and it was my only .22 rifle for many years.

Not to steer the thread off course, but,
Everybody should at least have one good ole`faithful Ruger 1022 in their semi-auto collection.

Hey guys, my brother says CZ makes this one 22 rimfire that has interchangeable barrels? He was telling me this one CZ rimfire comes with a 22 and a 22MAG barrel? Any of you have one of these rifles? I`m wondering if its worth my time to locate one, and how the accuracy is with both barrels. I do have a nice older Marlin stainless heavy barrel model in 22MAG, and that little guy reaches them vermin`s 150yds with no effort. I do like the 22MAG for that reason.

I’ve only had Marlins and CZ’s. I have a couple Glenfield 25’s and two CZ 452’s and a 455. I’m in the market for another. I’m leaning towards a Bergara, or maybe a Tikka or a CZ 457 MTR or maybe a Lithgow. I would like to have a Voodoo, but that ain’t going to happen. I have one CZ 452 that is amazingly accurate for the money. The other 452 is unfired so far.
I have the antique gun lgs next door to where I work on the lookout for a BRNO 3 or 5, Winchester 52 or Remington40x.

That is fabulous birthday present! You must have been so happy and proud not just for the gift, but for the trust in you that your parents were showing. :) I know just how you felt because my parents gave me a Winchester 290 on my twelfth birthday. It is still with me today. :)

That's a gorgeous rifle!

12-year-old me didn't think about the trust issue. I was very excited, though. Couldn't wait to go kill a Horde of Soup Cans.

I knew that the one I posted wasn't exactly what you're looking for. If I happen to run across it online, I'll post a link.

Read the description. It talks about .22LR, .17HMR and .22WMR.
