    Savage 93R17 series. Check them all out. Pick whatever stock and barrel suits you, as there are plenty of configurations. A lot of gun for the money. Very accurate. The BTVS version has a thumbhole laminate stock and a heavy stainless target barrel. This is almost more than you need, and the more basic models are much cheaper, but this thing looks cool, and with it, you'll print groups that are even cooler.

    If you want to spend more, check out the Sako Quad. You're paying for a very well thought out, accurate gun, and the versatility of having 3 other barrels in the 3 other major rimfire calibers that change out fast and easy without moving the point of impact terribly far.

    If you're really on a budget, get an H&R single shot. Very simple, very cheap, and still very accurate.

      I have been very happy with my CZ 452 and a Swift 4-12, the whole thing cost me less than $500 and true it doesn't shoot any better than the Savage but I just feel it is a little more substantial and better made.
