    It is a toss up on the finest 22 rimfire rifle...Cooper or Anschutz...best is different than finest...Best for me figures in cost and practicality..I would have to go with Savage for best

    Jim - Had a Rem 572, and will get another - good practice for my Rem 760. Surprisingly accurate and just a blast to shoot. Only problem with it was that I kept running out of ammo.

    I had forgotten about this gun - saw one today. Seems like it would be a great small game and plinking gun. Does anyone have any experience with a Browning Buckmaster .22 rifle?

    rabbit police,
    i wasnt saying you were wrong i was mentioning that i turned down the golden boy since it had the gold on it. the gun i have is the golden boy only i have it with the black metal on it. obviously its not called the golden boy but we all know what im talkin bout. so yes alot of henrys are pretty trashy but if you want to save money i was reccomending the golden boy with black plates. if you like the gold then go for it since i have the same gun just different color and they do work flawlessly. i love how smooth the lever is and the scope i have on it just rains the squirrls. sorry for going down on your comment i was just stating my personal choice when i got the gun and my opinion.

    MLH,
    You got a 572 Fieldmaster? I love mine. The stock was broken for a long time but I finally got it together. I swear I've never had a 22 rifle this accurate. We've had competitions shooting wheat stalks down at 30-50 yds distance and my fieldmaster rarely loses.

    hunterkid94,
    I did not recommend the Henry Golden boy because it has gold on the trigger or because it "looks good". I have personally shot the Golden boy a few times and it works flawlessly. It has the smoothest action and the sights on that thing are amazing. Like you said yourself, it's not the looks that make the gun it's the quality of the product.

    Reid, you meant the Marlin 60 I'm sure. And they are very good for the money, very good. Just strip them down right from the dealer and clean them according to the manual before you go out. They come greased up.

    Without addressing the rifle itself, I've got to say the short rf is a dying breed. The long is tough to find but the short seems to be gone around here. It's a shame because there was a time when if we didn't use gigs for bullfrogs we used 22's, and of the three types the short seemed to bury them frogs where they sat. Seemed like the LR was to fast and made the frogs jump, even though they were dead. The Long was ok but the short did the best on bullfrogs. IMHO

    if your going for cheap, the Ruger model 60's don't cost much and they're very rugged and durable. they shoot great.

    i said without the gun last answer i ment without the gold. my bad. the main reason is because you dont need to have the flashy gold. true hunters look for quality not looks.

    I diagree with the golden boy since its gold. the .22 from henry that is the same gun as the golden boy without the gun is alot better. The henrys have unmatched quality when it comes to accuacy and the power to choose what you feel like shooting that day. my dad got me one for y birthday and he uses it when im gone. im only 14 and ive killed 11 squills in the past year and a half with it. i love the smooth action and i would reccomend it to any shooter. if you have to choose most definaly go with the henry.

    Do you have a need to shoot Shorts and Longs? So many choices in Long Rifle loads nowadays.

    I like the Remington 572 Fieldmaster pump. Accurate and a blast to shoot. Used ones are also inexpensive.

    Older 9422 rimfires were excellent. Newer ones had some blatant quality issues. I ordered one that came in with a twisted magazine. You could see air between the stock and receiver. The firing pin kept bending, and the stock cast was so extreme that it lined up better with my nose. Sent it back twice and they never fixed it.

    shorts are hard for autos to handle, i would go with a marlin lever action.

    I am not aware of any auto that will reliably cycle with all three loads. I would suggest a good lever. As mentioned, the Henry is a good one, as is the Browning lever. I especially like the short stroke on the Browning because it is very quick.
