I've been looking at the Ruger american rimfire and also the Marlin xt-22. What do you guys think?

"Best" comes with a budget. Anschutz (1416D), Winchester (Model 54), Browning (A-bolt), Sako (P94S), and others all make bolt action .22's that are many times better than either the Ruger or the Marlin - and many times more expensive. 

I personally like the the CZ-452. It's a great gun for the money. 

The reason why i am considering ruger and marlin is because I am on a budget. How much do the CZ's usually run for?

Looks like they have replaced the 452, with the 455 (except for the ultra-lux versions, which are spendier).

The CZ-455 Training rifle (which is the model I recommend) - has an MSRP of $375 but should sell for less. 

If I was in the market for a bolt .22, I don't know many or any other companies I would look at other than CZ. I love the feel of all of their guns.

I should mention, there is also a rifleman group here, you may get more responses within it. 

   Both are very good. Any out of the box 22 from an American company (note I didn't say manufactured in America) will be a safe, accurate, excellently made rifle, so get whichever fits your budget. When you buy a rifle, think backwards from the target. Pick a target, then pick a caliber to do what you want to the target, then pick sights, then pick a barrel, then pick an action, then pick a stock that fits you. Ergonomics is pretty important. Pick a rifle you can pick up and quickly get a sight picture with.

I was searching for a .22 for my kids and ended up getting a Marlin 795. Great gun and I have been happy with both Marlin firearms that I own. Like John said most of the .22 American brand rifles you get will be good guns and last a long time if you take care of them.

If you are having trouble deciding between two or three different ones then I would recommend going with the cheaper one. Take the money you saved and use that to start saving for the next firearm or put toward ammo.

Moneys... and what to do with em

Hello,I have spent the last year paying off all my credit card debt. I have paid off $10,000 so far, just $1,000 to go.I've been working two jobs to achieve this, and also studying part time so that I can change into a career of my choice (instead of just working in whatever jobs I can get).My next goal will be to save $10,000 as a safety fund.But then, I'm not sure...In what ways do you all invest? Or do you not invest at all? Do you prefer to have it still safety in the bank? Let me know, for…See More
