So Ive ruined my Savage 64 .22. I JB welded the scope to the grooves to hold the scope still cause it kept sliding forward. Now, a few months later, I've taken it off and sanded as much away as I can but it took a lot of bluing with it. The gun jams up anyways and has been beat to death. Im not too worried about it getting ruined considering its a cheap gun in the first place. So now the idea of a new 22 keeps crossing my mind. I can't decide what I would get if I were to get one though. I don't know if I want a semi auto, bolt, or lever action. I have a Henry lever 22 mag and its an awesome gun (at least after it came back from getting fixed on warranty work). Is semi auto really all that necessary for small game hunting? I would imagine a bolt or lever 22 can take care of squirrels and rabbits just as well as a semi. What would you guys buy if y'all were getting a new 22?

I've been wanting the CZ 455 lately. Love that set up with the Kevlar stock

It depends on how much you're planning to spend.

If I were to buy one I would get a 10/22. The Hbar models are nice but too heavy to carry too far for squirrels and rabbits.

If I was going to spend over five hundred dollars on a rimfire, I'd look for a Winchester 52 on Gunbroker. There are a lot of them that have been ruined for collector value but are still awesome shooters. The only problem is finding a seller who knows AND can admit that his gun is a shooter only.

Love my 455, though it's a .17 HMR. VERY accurate and consistent.

Doesn't CZ make one with three barrels, 17, 22 LR and 22 WMR? That would be really hard to pass up.

CZ 3 in 1

Wouldn't trade my CZ 452 trainer for love or money, great .22 and super accurate.

I have been looking at the Ruger American rimfires recently thought. I would love one in .17 HMR. The barrel is already threaded and the rotary mag is great.

If I were to buy a brand new .22 today the CZ 3 in 1 would get a hard look from me. Although, now that I have a .22 suppressor on the way I would want to get all 3 barrels threaded which would cost an additional 150-200 dollars for the 3 barrels.
