Considering one for several reasons, one of which is shooting it suppressed for small varmint control, so it must have a threaded barrel. Other than the Ruger American, which models should I be looking at?

Why not concentrate your efforts on finding a good shooter and then have it threaded? Good chance you will find a good shooter among some of the earlier .22s and the price can offset the threading cost ? JMHO

I bought the Marlin Xt22

Reasons why

1. Bolt action and tube fed
2. Will cycle short, long or long rifle
3. Inexpensive
4. Target trigger - idk if it really is, but it's a nice trigger for a cheap 22

My only complaints

1. Adjustment screw on trigger is made of play dough - super soft
2. Iron sights were put on off center. Had to install a scope

I thought the ruger Americans were ugly
I considered Savage, and probably would have bought one if I wanted magazine fed


There are really nice target 22s, but they are too expensive for me.

This ^^^...iron sights do suck. Put a Nikon pro staff on it and it's perfect... I do recommend the bolt action Marlin XT 22, beware, extra mags are impossible to find off shelf. I ordered 5 extra from marlin with no hassles. They came within a week so not really a bid deal. I do like the set up a lot. If you are gonna spend another 500 on it to barbi it up, this is not the gun for you. Never had a jam w/ cheap 22 ammo.

I got a CZ 455 22lr varmint for Christmas and it will touch holes easily at 50 yards, can also get a couple other barrels for them since they are interchangeable. I may get the .17, but good right now.

I went through this all last summer and did a ton of reading, pretty damn happy with my decision on the CZ, great build quality and the wood on mine is the nicest Walnut I have ever had on a firearm.

I have a Savage Mark II FVSR. Change the stock, add a scope, good to go.
