Like I said, I donít have a 22 Mag and iím Thinking about getting one. Donít really want to spend a lot of money, but I also donít want a trashy rifle and I want accuracy. The Ruger American rim fire looks interesting. Surely some of yaíll have one, so please give me your impressions. And suggest other options. Thanks.

I have a Marlin 983T, its accuracy is fair so beware.

I have a Marlin 783 22 mag, tube feed. I am very pleased with its performance and accuracy to 100 yards with all brands of ammo, likes CCI 40 gr the best.

I doubt you would be disappointed in the Ruger.

Only Ruger I own is the 22/45 .22lr, I would buy another.

I have the Ruger American Predator (model 8335). Had it about a year now and have put everything from 30 grain vmax to 45 grain gold dots thru it without an issue. Accurate as i need it to be out to 100yds haven't tried pushing it past that.

I have a Ruger American in Predator trim too, and I have been quite happy with its performance as well.

An unethical shot is one you take, that you know you shouldn't.

KelTec makes both a rifle and a pistol. I own two of the pistols and the one I shoot is really great. It's my go-to hand gun. The rifles are based on the PMR 30's, and while I don't have one, I've shot a couple of them and the guys that owned them said they would not get rid of them for any price!

I love my CZ 22s but do have a Savage 22 mag, great little rifle with a can on it.
Very accurate too, been running the Hornady 45g Critical Defense, shoots a bit under and inch at 100 yards..
About to load up the truck to go hunt, might need to add it to the mix

I've always wanted a 2wmag lever rifle and revolver combo. More specifically a Henry 22wmag and Taurus tracker.

Classic winchester if you can find one. Got one at a gun show made in the 70's. It is a great shooter.

I think .22 magnum is a great round. It has gotten pricey in the last several years.
