I am looking to buy a nice .22 lr sporting rifle for my son and I to shoot. The problem is that currently there are not many .22 lr bolt actions in town.
I am looking for something that feels like good quality.
Here are the few I am aware of (but hoping to hear about other options):
Ruger 77/22 rotary in either SS and Synthetic or the classic walnut stock and blued (I own several Ruger 77s)
Browning T-bolt (I haven't ever held one)
CZ 455 American (again I don't know what the action is really like) but they make a combo model with swappable barrels
I may have seen a Cooper out there for under $1,000 but I really don't want to spend $1,000
Others? I am not really interested in a tube fed rifle either.
Who has experience with the T-bolt or CZ? Right now the default winner is the Ruger 77/22...
