    I want to purchase a good .22LR bolt action rifle and wish to have your input. I wish to scope the rifle and use it as a plinker/crow shooter.

    Thanks,

    I second the CZ. I didn't know anything about them until recently....but I just love mine. They are good shooters right out of the box and a good deal.

    Hi! I am new here, but been shooting CZ's rifle for a while. I say go for the CZ. Here are some pictures of my CZ's, bought the American 452 16' barrel about two weeks ago. Enjoy!

    If your looking for a plinker or a all around good 22 you should check out Remingtons model 5 .

    Tim, I just bought a Remington Model 5 youth for my son. That is what prompted me to think about buying a bolt action .22 for my self. I have a Remington 511 that was manufactured October 1945, it was purchased new by my grandfather. I love my 511 but I want a gun I can scope without taking away from the value. My eyes aren't what they used to be. I will look at the full size version. Thanks to all for your input.

    Rolando, the CZ is a beauty. They are on the short list.

    Carver, I have a new scope-i'd say 300.00 ballpark.
