Wanting to know about quality. New or old.

I have a LH Savage MK II, and have been happy with it. I was wanting to know of other options that are attainable for non-wealthy people, or stick with another Savage MK II.

Looking for best bang for the buck. This will be a trainer for my 7 year old daughter that is right handed, and I would like for it to be a 50 yard tack driver.

I handled a CZ 455 Mannlicher today and loved it; they were asking about $440 as I recall. Not sure it's the best choice for a 7 year-old. A while back I bought a Savage Rascal (pink!) for an 8 year-old girl and was pleasantly surprised by the rifle once I installed an inexpensive scope. It had the accu-trigger and was much more usable and accurate than I expected. It's not a rifle to keep for 10 years, but it's a pretty neat 2 or 3 year rifle. It's also very reasonably priced.

CZ's are very nice guns. I have had great luck with my Savage bolt actions in 17 HMR and 22 Mag. Although I don't own one I would consider the Ruger American Rimfire, they make a youth model with interchangeable stock pads to change the LOP and they use the standard Ruger box mags.

Remington 521 T. They made a youth model in it also. They are a great rifle.

Tikka... Oh wait never mind.

CZ is nice but not cheap.

Ruger 77/22 is nice but not cheap.

Looks like Savage is the best option, maybe a Ruger American, but not sure on their quality.

I wasn't very enthusiastic about the Ruger Americans I handled. They were gritty and sharp edges.

Older Remington Bolt action 22s were great shooters. I haven't tried any of the newer stuff.

Older marlin bolt actions with the microgroove barrel. I love my model 780.

Pre-Remington Marlin if budget is concerned. In the order I would personally choose.

780 781 25N 25 880 881 925 981

...and if you don't mind the Remlin stigma there is the XT-22, not built until 2011.
