.22 bolt rifle

Need a decent bolt .22 rifle for squirrel season this year. Will most likely add a scope to it, but wouldn't mind having iron sights on it. Whats the best under or around $250ish?

Don't really have a preference in wood vs synthetic stocks. I also had my eye on some of the henry lever guns.

Look at the CZ line of bolt .22 rifles. I have two at the present time, and they're both accurate as hell.
The "Trainer" and the "Ultralux" both have GREAT open sights. I have the "Varmint" with a scope on it, and an Ultralux.
Great, well-made rifles for not a lot of money.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm really eyeing those henry lever guns at the moment though. Any one have experience with those?

Almost bought a Henry once. Then I learned that the reason they cycled so smoothly is because there is a POLYETHYLENE piece that the lever pivots against inside the action. I will buy no lever gun with plastic inside the action.
Also, the receiver is cast out of a zinc-based alloy, what we commonly call "pot metal." I was very fortunate my brother left me his Marlin 39A when he passed away. Now THAT is a quality lever gun. All walnut and steel ...

+1 But not as cheap as they used to be. This is my son's little CZ scout and has had a little work done but not much really. It shoots as good or better than any .22 I own that cost way more. Also notice the Henry in the background. I know what you are saying and also have a 39 but it is a very fun gun to shoot and is well made.

That is all.
I've had a P22 for over a year now and put about 2k rounds through it. It flat-out sucked at first, misfeeding 1/3 shots. I searched around the net and did a few mods to it and now it functions really well.

Fun little gun.

Thinking of getting one of these:



Beautiful gun, lovely design.

But I am a bit put off by the stories of problems.

I am betting that most of those problems were with early guns, and probably no small number with people who ignored the advice by Kimber to only shoot it with 125 grain and larger projectiles, and/or they used cheap ammo.

It is either one of these or a similar size/weight Kahr.

I almost did not by my solo for the same reason you mentioned. However I made the plunge and have had no faiulures to feed using 147 grain hollow points. The gun is also very accurate for such a small gun. I am able to break sticks floating down the river at 20 yards. Its a keeper!

Great photo and a good thing you are doing...teaching your son the shooting sports. I'm taking my daughter to the range tomorrow. And those CZs are fine, fine rifles. So are the Marlins. Never had a Henry; someday I will own one.

I went with the Kahr. The Kimber is prettier, but after much comparison I think the Kahr's feel, and workmanship is on top. IMHO
Very happy with my PM9.

I have the CZ 452 American, the left-hand version, with a 3-9x Nikon scope. I'm ready to harass some squirrels in southern Missouri.

I have the Lux version, lefty as well. It is a very nice gun. I haven't decided yet if I want to scope mine.
