    Welcome to TFF, Boto!

    You'll get a lot of arguments about which one is the "best," but the most popular new semi-autos seem to be the Ruger 10/22, the Marlin model 60, and the Remington 597 (in that order).

    The 10/22 has more accessories and customization options than either of the others, if that makes a difference to you.

    Good luck on your search!

    I bought my son a Ruger 10-22 a few years ago. That has been the most accurate, out of the box gun I have ever shot. As far as a bolt action being more accurate...only a fraction of shooters have the skills and God given talent to even make that argument. At least that's what Gunnery Sergeant (Ret.) Carlos Hathcock told me once. I humbly agree.

    I recently bought a wildcat with heavy barrel mounted a leupold fx-1 4x28 fixed with bkl .004 drop compo and its unstopable.You get 5 mags with it 3 5 shot and 2 10 shot.The mags are plastic and a bit light but the 5 shots are hiddin in the gun.If you can pick up a toz its the same gun but with less frills.

    Boto,

    Are, simiauto rifles legal in Canada? This could limit your options but not your ability to get a reliable, accurate rifle.

    sniper, i have a buddy that has one of them marlins with the tube mags, has a fiberglass stock, although im not sure of the model number it is the only one in production currently, and from what he tells me, it is dern accurate with a scope attached.

    im thinking about getting one myself

    They are pretty good but they dont come close the accuracy of the Marlin Lever acton rifles I have had the pleasure to fire.

    The Marlin Model 81-DL is tube fed .22 S-L-LR bolt action. Used prices for well preserved examples should be less than $200 and often in the $100 range at shows.

    I've got one of these I bought in near mint condition and I paid just under $200.00 for it, but I probably paid a little too much. I love a tube magazine because you can shoot shorts, longs, long rifles, stingers, cb, etc through them if it's a bolt action or lever action. I don't see the point in getting any .22 with a vertical feed magazine because it normally limit's the type of ammo you can use, unless you want a semiauto, then you might as well get one with a vertical feed mag because the cb's won't cycle through it anyway.
