    Mossberg 702 Plinkster. On the upside it fed properly, was comfortable to shoot, iron sights were OK. Downside, was the least accurate .22 I've ever shot (actually had two different customers try to return it for this reason), and the receiver actually cracked wide open on the right side while my buddy was shooting Stingers! His face was all black on the right side and it scared the pee out of him, but he was OK. The rifle was about 3 months old and had about 200 rounds through it at the time it BLEW UP!

    SO VERY TRUE!!! The Viper I had was as about as worthless...well lets just say I owned it about 2 days and that was 47 hours too long.

    I would never buy another Remington 522 Viper - ever! I hate to say it, but because of the 522 Viper it soured me on any Remington products ever again. Perhaps I should not be that way, but once burned,,, well let's just say I don't trust Remington's quality any longer.

    Worst to best list
    1) Iver Johnson Sidewinder... so far out of time you had to help rotate the cylinder.
    2) S&W Escort...jammed all the time
    3) Ruger 10/22...use plated bullets if you wanted to shoot it more than the first shot
    4) Marlin 39A...had to hold your mouth just right to get it to feed
    5) Can't rank the rest as they are all perfect
    Model 49 Ithaca
    Model 60 Marlin
    Colt Trooper Mark III
    Ruger Mark II
    Smith 22A
    Smith Pre 17
    Remington 572
    Browning ATD
    I am surprised at the negative responses on the 22A. I have many, many rounds thru mine and it is a can killer.

    I had a S&W 22A that wouldnt fire the second round out of either mag. The scary part is that the second round would not go all the way into battery but the weapon would still drop the hammer. IDK about you guys but a firearm that will try to fire out of battery bothers me. Never could adjust the sites to get on paper eather. Had to hold under about a foot at 25 yards! No way they give a damn about quality!

    Taurus pt22. Blech. Plastic handles cracked and disintegrated. It was also a huge pain to rack the slide. Fed everything poorly. Not that I expected much in the way of sights for a gun this small, but come on. Finish was poor. Traded it with some cash for a 5.5" S&W 22a. Ugly and also had feeding issues, and the sight rail seemed to be missing some grooves:) Traded that and some cash for a Browning Buckmark Hunter. I am happy to say that I have no desire to trade this one.

    I had a Ruger Mark III; no feed problems to speak of, very accurate, functioned as advertised. But I'll never buy anything like that again. Took me two and half hours with the manual in front of me to put the thing back together after I'd taken it down for cleaning.
