    .22 inexpensive bolt

    Hi folks,
    I've been away for a while. Looking at getting an inexpensive bolt .22 lr. So far I'm between the 802 plinkster and the norinco JW 15 but the JW is harder to find now. Any other suggestions? Prefer something with a removable magazine.

    I have an 802 plinkster. I don't recommend it. The bolt is so sloppy, if you use a bit of force to chamber a round, it fires without the trigger being pulled and bounces the bolt back against my thumb. And the crappy front sight broke. On the plus side, I now have an extra mag for my son's 702 which has been an excellent little plinker for several thousand rounds now.

    IMO, the Savage Mark-II and Marlin XT-22 are probably better quality for around the same price (basic models $250-$275-ish)

    I have both. Magazine catches are a little flimsy, that’s pretty typical for these lower priced bolt .22’s. Accurate and functional. I find the Marlin feels a little better in my hands.

    I had a ruger american rimfire. I'm not exactly sure why I had one, but I did, and I found them decent as well.

    Savage Mk II for best value imo, I have a FV heavy barrel version but I'd suggest the G with hardwood stock, the synthetic stocks flex

    Having gone from a cheapo 22 rifle to expensive target rifles, I would NEVER go back to cheap. A quality 22 rifle will last you a lifetime and is something you will never regret spending the money on. Cheap is just cheap and mostly they are not fun to shoot. Spend the money and buy something good.

    It's not cheap.... I'm kind of tempted to get the Browning Buckmark.
