77/22 is a nice gun, but they are WAY overpriced. Go for a 10/22.

Or....if you want to have a little more fun....





BUT.....those GSG-5's are $500, and they just stopped making/ importing them from germany per a lawsuit. I can keep an entire 22 round magazine within a quarter on open sights at 25 yds with little effort, and 3" groups at 100 yds with a non magnified red dot. Very fun gun.

I would go with the remington model 5, Better than the 10/22 out of the box.The 10/22 is good but after you sink more $$$$$$$ into it

I would also suggest a 0.20 or 0.22 cal air rifle - biggest benefit is that you can target shoot it most anywhere - like in your basement.

Just sayin'...

for the money and quality you can't beat the 10/22. you can get 30-50 round mags and it shoots great.

10/22's are pretty damn accurate out to their effective range.

the 10/22 is "fairly" accurate. a 77/22 is a little more accurate out of the box.

anything can be made to be accurate. out of the box stock usually a bolt action is a little more accurate.

many would sacrifice a little accuracy for a semi auto, depends on what you want from your weapon.

I'm a big 10/22 fan...they are like legos, you can go crazy with adding things on and modding them. I would shy away from the remington 597's...they look nice and some people swear by them, but I had tons of problems with mine. Magnum force gun shop wouldn't even take it in on trade because they had so many customers complaining about them and trying to return them, so that tells you something right there. The 10/22 is the way to go if you want a semi auto, especially if you like to mod them like I do .

Here is my first build, started as a basic 10/22 carbine...


I converted it to a .17hm2 and re did the whole receiver with volquartsen internals, volquartsen carbon fiber barrel, and Raptor stock with a leupold vx-II 4-12x40mm scope. This thing is a nail driver.


and here is my second one, also started as a basic 10/22 carbine.



this one is similar to the first one as far as mods, but it has a T-Rex stock and a green mountain 20" fluted bull barrel (same scope and internals)

I ended up tearing this one back apart, and trading the stock and a different receiver with the same barrel for some parts for my quad. I still have that receiver and scope all ready to go into a different stock with a light weight kidd barrel, should be a very accurate lightweight 22...I will probably finish this one up a little after Christmas.

Like I said, they are great rifles and fun to build...but they are EXTREME money pits. One is never enough, there are so many options available that you will want to build a half dozen of them.
