Son in law wants a .22 semi for Christmas, budget is $200. Need suggestions on a reliable (dependent upon ammo) .22 semi. I have owned Ruger semi's but it has been quite a few years. Are any of the other current models a decent buy and not jam-o-matics? Thanks in advance for suggestions.

Marlin M60 comes to mind, and never had an issue with a Ruger 10-22. Both are solid rimfire's. I'd steer clear of the Mossberg's.

Marlin model 60, $169 for a black one. I prefer it to the 10-22 because of the tube magazine and it doesn't have an odd lever to hold/release the bolt.

I have a Marlin model 60 and a Ruger 10/22. Out of the box model 60 all the way for me.

I got my son the 10/22 two years ago. It's amazingly accurate and has yet to miss a beat. It's been great.

Flip a coin. Lots of mods available for the 10/22; I've killed a bunch of varmints with both.

Thanks for all the good advice. Found a 10/22 in the for sale section and will pick up a model 60 for myself.

I grew up with a Marlin, and it never let me down. However, we have a 10/22 for each member of the family and have never wanted for anything else.

I've owned several 10-22's and Marlin M60's.

I like the Marlin best.

Can't go wrong with a Marlin 60...I have one...as do most of my friends.

If your SIL likes to tinker though, there are 1001 accessories one could buy for the Ruger 10/22.

I have owned or currently own multiple M60's and 10/22's, both excellent guns. However, I will throw another 22 out there, the Remington 597. I got one of these a couple of years ago and have been very impressed with accuracy and function. Have heard of others having issues with this rifle though.
