Cheap .22 Rifle and / or pistol

What are some reasonable deals for .22 pistols and rifles? This would be for kids to use and I would want something cheap. Growing up my dad had a .22 revolver and semi auto .22 rifle that I could plink with all day in the back yard (he lived in the country). I would like to have something like that for the boys for when we go up to Leah's grandmother's.

BTW, bolt action rifle would be okay too, if they can be found cheaper.

Perfect kids gun, totally made for their size. About $100.

You can find them at Wal-mart and Gander Mountain. I'm sure Cabella's or Great Outdoors has them, too.

A friend got a semi auto .22 rifle for $99 at Wally world... Not very pretty, and the sights suck, but it's reliable and quiet. You could shoot it out doors without ears no problem.

They look pretty small based on the kids they show. This would be for a 13 and 12 year old. Those kids look about 8 and the gun looks small for them.

That's cool though, I just take one of them up to the store with me when I do it to have them try out the size.

IF you can find one, any of the Remington Nylon series of rifles would be great.

Otherwise, a Ruger 10/22 or a Marlin would be my choices.

Ya...the Crickett is a starter gun, for younger kids.

At yours' ages, they could handle a standard rifle. I agree, take them to a store and try them on for size.

I'd use to say 10/22 end of story. But they have changed alot still good guns but not the gun of my youth. I'd still buy either that or a marlin.

What you might call solitude is something i look forward to.

The 10/22 is great, and Ruger also made/makes the Standard/MK I Target, MK II, and MK III semiauto pistols. Great, reliable, and cheap.

the overall best bang for the buck is a 10/22. If you just want something that punches holes in paper then get a cheap .22LR bolt action for around 100 bucks. A 10/22 is going to run you about 160-190 at academy.

Academy sells a cheap .22 revolver thats a knock off of a Ruger single six pretty cheap. Also the Marlin model 60's can found pretty cheap at Walmart.

I am not impressed with the new 10/22s. The quality has seemed to have diminished in recent years.
I noticed that the stainless is not actually stainless, but painted.

BTW only bad thing about the Marlin model 60 is that if not cleaned they have a tendency to jam up pretty easy.

What they said. I have 2 10/22's I love them to bits!

Buy them one ... you wont regret it. I would highly advise to buy a old used one because of the downhill quality. The new ones are still great rifles though.

They haven't been stainless in quite a few years - the receivers - the barrels are still stainless. I do have one of the recent stainless models, it is in fact an aluminum receiver that has been painted. I removed the paint and put a brush finish on it, looks stainless now. Outside of the stainless model all of the recent 10/22's are still about the same quality from what I've seen. I personally would not recommend an old 10/22... you have to be careful with .22's specifically, because since ammo is so cheap, it's quite easy to buy a used 10/22 that has been shot 100,000 times - and you don't want that. .22's are about the only gun I recommend buying new.

Another vote for a Ruger 10/22. Hard to resist getting one considering the aftermarket accessoriesthey have. I did have a Remington Nylon 66 that I got from my uncle. I regret getting rid of it for sentimental reasons but it can't compare to the fun I have with the 10/22, some extra magazines, and the red dot sight I have on it

Haven't made up my mind what I want for a .22 LR pistol though

same here. I bought several 25rd magazines for my 10/22, a tapco AR stock, a red dot, and a competition 2lb trigger and it's a blast to plink with. And with all of that crap included, I still spent less than I would have if I bought a GSG-5.

I have a Ruger Single Six and its a blast to shoot, but if I was gonna go out and buy a .22 pistol it would be the Ruger Mark 1,2, or 3 crazy accurate with the heavy fluted barrel and trigger job.

Thinking about one of these. I have been pretty happy with my gsg5 overall despite the misfire issue which should now be resolved.

Really? I have 2 in my case that where not cleaned since they where new in 1975. I bought both of them recently, took them to the range, and had no problems. Yes they are clean now.


I had one just like it when I was a kid in 74. I used it every week, if not every day (summer time) I gave it a good cleaning, maybe once a year. But I did clean the barrel every time I used it.

Go pick up a new(er) model. They jam up easy when dirty.

I bought one about 4 years ago and it ran perfect any ammo no problems. My father in law bought one about a year later and it is absolutely terrible. You are lucky to get through a whole mag without jamming issues. And since it was only 100 bucks its hard to go much out of the way to have it repaired.

I've since moved on to a Henry and it has been nothing but great. CB shorts are a lot of fun and the solid walnut stock actually feels like a quality firearm.

Marlin Model 60 period.

You can get 14 rounds in the tube and never have to worry about dropping a magazine or losing one.



I have a Ruger 10/22 and three of these Marlin Model 60s.

Oh, and Craig, if you don't have time to buy one, you can borrow mine.

The one I have is just like what is pictured.

The other two are stainless models and they are the boy's.

The Marlin Model 60 was the first gun I ever bought. I must have shot 15K rounds thru that thing over the years. Still shoots true and holds a decent pattern. Can't go wrong with it.

That is with ANY .22LR rifle. They are inherently dirty, so they jam after a few hundred rounds. My Marlin does it, but then again so does my Ruger. It's unaviodable.

Dick's has a Marlin 795 on Sale for $99 right now.

EDIT:

This was a 2 day "Black Friday" sale price that was only for Friday and Saturday.

Academy has a Marlin 795 for $115 - $20 mail in rebate through Saturday 12/5.

My dad has a Plinkster with a little BSA scope, that little thing is badass. It's a little tack driver, and he only paid 80$ for it with the scope, from a pawn shop though.

I would recommend it.

I'd recommend a Marlin 60 or Ruger 10/22 (For someone who really wants a 22).

Personally, I'd probably get the kids a BOLT ACTION 22, just so they don't shoot the crap out of stuff. It will teach them to aim and not spray and pray.

For a hand gun, Id recommend an American Heritage Rough Rider at Academy. They are $99.00 (Revolver with a 22 LR cylinder and 22 mag cylinder).

But again, its totally up to you what you get your kids.
