Re: Best .22lr bang for the buck?
I'd have to weigh in with something a bit different. For $99.99 you can get a "Whisper" with 2-5 round and 2- 10 round mags from Centerfire Systems and have a real shooter for a song. This gun is a Russian TOZ-78. Triggers on these adjust down below 1 lb. with virtually no creep. The stocks are butt ugly and I ended up painting mine but with a 4-12 scope on it, it will shoot 1 MOA all day long. The gun is so light that it does not shine off a bench, but should be great for lugging around in the field. I have no doubt that this gun will outshoot any 10/22 out of the box. It shoots nearly as good as my CZs. For fifty bucks more you can get the sem-auto version, the TOZ-99, for those who like to burn through a lot of ammo. The trigger is not quite as nice, but both guns take the same mags.
