Looking to get a new .22 for target shooting only.  Looking to spend $300-$500 on the rifle, scope to be decided upon later.  Been a long, long time since I've looked at new developments in this caliber so I'm admittedely well behind the 8-ball.

 

Any thoughts?

Do you mean Match target shooting or plinking?

 

CZ makes some very classy plinkers.

I have done recent research since I am in the same market and have always been in love with 22's.  I have decided to save my money and get a Kimber HS that costs more, around $900. It has a 24 inch free floated match barrel and all the features that are better for accuracy and could be used for competition locally. It would not be competitive with all the fancy or custom jobs that cost several thousand, though.  IT is actually a centerfire rifle that shoots rimfire bullets.

A few years back I went on a quest for an adult .22.  I got a 77/22 stainless after much searching.  CZ is about the only maker that would make me rethink that buy. It does not have that .22 feel you get from many rifles.  If the bank has no limit than I'd get an Anschutz.  The Cooper and Kimbers are nice, but lack a certain grace and style.  You can blue print a Chevy, You can even blue print a Buick, but that don't make it a Duesenberg.

man did you luck out-- there are so many good 22s out there, where to begin.

a kimber grand american isn't as good as a duesenberg, got to think about that.

look at the new browning t-bolt out in a heavy barrel now

CZ

used win.52b sporters or a new if findable

10/22 with graphite barrel and kidd trigger

stiller if they decide to make it

ND2000 I'm gonna suggest the Savage Mark II F. Its only about $100 depending where you get it and shoots great.  Shoots 1/2" groups or smaller at 50yards even with cheap bulk .22lr 550ct ammo. Usually put federal through it.

 

Heres a picture of mine with a paintjob and a $10 cheekpiece.

 

If your just messing around and shooting whatever with friends, nothin beats a $100 savage that outshoots whatever they have

I agree, the Ruger is a nice rifle for your purposes.  Another choice would be the new Savage Classic Rimfire.  Go to the Savage website and look under, whats new.  jonbravado bought the CZ 452 American and during that thread, I recommended the above noted Savage or even one of the lesser Savages, with a laminated stock, which I still stand by, if you want to save money and put some more money into better optics, as the Savage with the laminated stock will shoot as well as any production rifle out of the box, considering rifle to rifle variations.  I know, I own the Savage in a .17HMR and it is a well made rifle as well as higher grade Savages (Low Profiler in a 22-250) and a Ruger 77 (.220 Swift).  During that thread, I got curious and found a price on the CZ 452 American, in a .17 mach 2 that I could not turn down and bought it.  I since have mounted a scope after lapping Burris rimfire rings (strongly recommended with this rifle and rings).  I have not shot it yet, but one thing I did notice, despite its nice fit and finish, is that the receiver is canted to the right in the stock, which can occur with any production gun and can be fixed by glass bedding, but probably not necessary, unless accuracy is poor.  I will find out.  This can occur with any production (or custom rifle, but I would hope not), it is just that I have never seen it on any of my production rifles.  Just a thougth and my opinion.

yeah, that savage classic is sweet - the accutrigger, if not used to it, can be a little strange.

 

i bought the CZ452 varmint - and am thrilled w/ the riflebasix trigger i dropped in.

 

it feels like a deer rifle - perfect for practice in the offseason.

 

good luck, there are LOTS of choices out there.  If you buy cheaper, sink money in glass.  You won't regret it.

 

i have an 800 dollar scope on mine. and it really feels solid.

Sorry about that jonbravado, I thought you bought an American.  I could not afford an 800 dollar scope, but wears a 3x9 40mm Tasco World Class, that used to be on my Savage .17HMR, that with that scope was a tack driver, able to hit a quarter all day long at 100 yards.  Not the best but, not the worst and since there is not recoil and the optics are clear and is not going to be used for shooting in near darkness, it fits the bill.  I forget what I put on that Savage, but it was much better.
