    I’m looking for a rifle in .22lr that I can scope (or red dot) I’ve had a 10/22 for about 10 years and I never really cared for it much (it just felt inferior) when I compared it to my Winchester 63.

    I don’t want the 63 scoped nor do I want to buy another but I want something well made.

    Right now I’m looking for a Winchester 9422 or a Browning BL22 anything else? I’m a lefty so if it’s a bolt gun it needs to be a southpaw model of which I believe CZ offers but I don’t know anything about them.

    Check out the "best .22 rifle" thread in the .22-rimfire forum. Some really good options were covered a few days ago. Hope this helps and good luck. OH, and the CZ 455 would be my vote.

    If you want the slickest action in a lever gun, get a Henry. Can't beat them.

    What's your budget? The CZ would be my choice for a bolt and the Browning is the sweetest for a lever.

    One of my most favorites AND most accurate [non-custom build]
    is the Marlin 39D.
    This one actually went thru a flood, in the saddle compartment
    of a horse trailer, in the early '80s. No choice but to re-blue.
    The wood still has some black spots imbedded deeply.

    I recently purchased a BL 22 and love it. Best .22 I have ever owned.

    Don't buy anything before having a look at Zastava's Z-5. Very good value.

    From what I've read, the Zastava Z-5 is a good value at around $225. The only complaints were that they haven't perfected the action. Hang ups seem to be common.

    I'm looking at $600. for my max and I'd like good wood but I'm not sure if that's doable.

    wow I don't know how I missed that thread, I really love the mannlicher stock guns My 10/22 had one and it was the only thing I really missed about it.

    I prefer the Golden Boy Henry but it isn't grooved for a scope. The standard Henry is.

    See if you can find the Savage MKII Classic. You might find a left hand bolt. Savage makes most of the MKIIs in a left hand model. About 450 or so, but a beautiful gun and very accurate. The CZs come in LH models. I don't believe the Zastavia's do, but they are also very accurate. I have one of the Remington Mdl Fives, same rifle that outshoots my CZ. I also have a Henry H001 that is a winner. Get it in the octagon barrel. Beautiful with buckhorn sights.
