    "Big Shrek did not mention the 881." So now I wonder. Is there something I am missing here? :confused:

    My 1942 Remington 512 for the win. They typically sell for $150 t0 $200 in Pawn Shops across the Country. Very accurate & reliable. Shoots shorts, longs & long rifles without a hitch. It'll hold 15 LR's or 22 shorts it the tubular magazine. They made them from 1940 to about 1965, so there's plenty of them around.

    The target is with Federal 550 Bulk Box Ammo at 50 yards.

    Any one have a 22 mossberg 342 or a westernfields 47C, which is a mossberg 45A. Both are well made and accurate. Westernfields made from 37-38. good quality .

    Like snake said. You can find Remington 5teen (510,511,512,513,514,521) in your price range. Trigger isn't all that good but they are shooters. Both of mine (511x and 513T) will hold 1" at 100 yards for 5 shots.

    Possibly look fer a remington 582 also. They are built like a high power and have a little longer barrel. When we got the rear sight fer mine, afore the front sight bustede I could shoot at 50 yrds a hole that a 12 gauge could slide in. With Iron sights. Will have to look fer the pic. Have a cheap tasco 4 power ($7 at wally worl) and we hit the primer on said 12 gauge shell. The 580 is a single 581 is a mag 10 rnds I think and the 582 is a tube 15 long rifles completely topped off.

    Find an older Mossberg, look for a 46 or a 146. Should be able to do that for under 200. They are as accurate a rifle as any made and 22 are very hard to wear out, like most 22's. They usually came with great sight systems too. Older Remington, Savages, and Winchester's will do well too. And Marlins.

    looking around for a new bolt gun myself before long, Savage is looking mighty tempting right now, very good prices and I like their quality, seems to be holding up their good reputation (with me anyway).

    If you get a used one and don't know what the bore is truly like or if the gun has headspace issues, you will be out that money. If you buy a new one, you can always hammer the manufacturer until they deliver a solid gun. Just a thought

    Get a Marlin xt-22. I got mine at Cabela's for around $200. I didn't shoot it very often but it seems to be fairly accurate.
