    Ruger 10/22 I've had mine 33 years and it's still rock solid dependable and if I ever choose to modify it parts are very plentiful!

    I'd say the 10/22 also. Its the most reliable gun in my whole collection and its older than me.

    Of all I have encountered and used or evaluated, the CZ Ultra Lux Super Exclusive is the best even though it has a 28.8 inch barrel. This gives it sight radius for superior accuracy with iron receiver sights and full velocity with today's best hyper velocity ammunition. It comes with a ten shot magazine that loads easily and feeds unfailingly. The barrel and action are of excellent workmanship; the trigger is excellent. Its open tangent sights have proven very good to 300 meters, double that in my hands for a Mendoza receiver sight. It has excellent proportion and pointability with sling swivels. It weighs only seven pounds despite the barrel length. It is far superior in accuracy on targets or in hunting to any other rifle of its weight. This is the one.

    I have a Marlin/Glenfield 60 that is very accurate and I have owned 2 Ruger 10/22's and 3 MK II Rugers; but if I was told I could only have one .22 I might be inclined to go with the new Colt/Walther M4 .22. I checked out one at Academy and thought it was awesome. It seems a little pricey but if it is good as the price is high, then that is what I would want.
