    Yeah i saw that, but i cant find one in the 22/22MAG combo, which is the CZ combo i wanted.
    I looked on their website again, but still haven`t found anything in the 22/22MAG combo.

    The closest ones I've found to what you're looking for are all 3 calibers.

    I bought a Ruger 77/22 Walnut back in the 80s and tuned it up a bit and it would put a box of RWS subsonic HPs into a 1/2" at 100 yds. Not so good with other types of ammo. Loaned it to a friend and since he had the timerity to die on me , I may not get it back.
    My latest acquisition is a Ruger American compact. It is squirrel accurate to 50+ yds. The most fun though is plinking away at 250 yds at steel where if there is no wind blowing it can hit a steel 6"plate a satisfactory number of times. Std vel or subsonics do the best. The CCI Quiet ammo is interesting, accuracy is "adequate" for its power range.

    Here is my semi-auto Thompson Benchmark .22LR heavy barrel , a real tack driver

    and my .22LR vintage 1946 CE Mossberg 46B(a) single action with 22 LR cartridges mag capacity in like new condition after I refinished the stock , the rear sight that was missing and a few other parts . The rifle have had very little use thru the years when I bought it , so the metal finish is perfect and the bore is pristine . The gun shoots beautifully, it is smooth as glass and it is more than enough for me . They knew how to make rifles then , for sure .
    I recently posted it on the photos site .

    Ruger 77-22, deep down I know there are better 22 bolt rifles out there, but the mag compatibility just makes it too enticing, and as said earlier everyone has to have a 10-22 :D

    For sure. I use four clamps, two on each side to hold the I-beam down and solid on my shooting bench. The holding blocks were bored round and I use various diameter sizes of split aluminum sleeves for the receiver bridge diameters on the actions. The picture below shows a better view of the aluminum sleeves used. Also shows the "single round loading adapter" that I machined from a solid block. Comes in sorta handy as all I need to do is drop a round on top of the adapter and shove the bolt forward and the round goes directly into the chamber:

    On the left side of the I-beam I have a block that holds my spotting scope mounted. Makes those tiny holes much easier to find on the target.

    I was 10 when I got my first .22 rifle, a Winchester Model 67A, single shot. the rifle was longer than me with it's 27 inch long barrel. My Dad took a picture of me with the rifle next to my side, buttplate down. It sorta looked like the pictures of those Japanese soldiers from WWII holding their rifles.
    I still have that rifle, only now it sports a scope I mounted, only so I can hit stuff shot at:

    When things calm down, I'm getting the break-down 10/22 with the back-pack.

    I’m looking for a deal on a Savage Precision Rimfire. I found one locally in 22LR and loved the feel of it. I just figure if it’s going to be a bold action may as well go with 22 Mag or 17 HMR - leaning towards the magnum.

    This is just my opinion rainman, but i`m staying with the 22MAG over the 17cal. The 22MAG bucks the wind better for those long 150yd shots. Couple friends have 17`s, if its windy, forget it.

    I have a Remington 541T that I have been very pleased with but have not shot it in a quite a while since they closed the local outdoor range down. :(

    Really? For some reason I was thinking the 17 bucked the wind more. So, this is good to hear - it gets windy where I’m at.
    I think the 22 mag is a bit more versatile.

    I really like my Savage MarkII FV-SR. Wish has little nicer stock and maybe 1” more LOP but nice trigger and bolt action

    ^^One of those was on my list for a long time. Just never found one at the right time. They look like nice rifles.

    I have a Winchester Model 67 that my father bought when he was a child back in the 40s. Still amazed how accurate it is. It was his squirrel gun
