Bolt Action Rifle Search
« on: January 24, 2017, 10:42:28 AM »
I'm looking for a new .22 rifle. The ones i have are either tube fed bolt actions or simi auto. I would like a rifle that fits the following requirements.

1. bolt action (no single shot or simi auto)
2. detachable magazine (not a tub magazine or internal magazine w/ floor plate
3. must accept .22LR and .22SHORT

and optionally...
4. enough meat on the muzzle to accept threading for a suppressor at a later time.
Are you a rifleman, or a cook?

Savage TTR and Ruger American, can be purchased with threaded muzzle.
The savage is a fine rifle with a poor magazine.

The Ruger American .22 will absolutely fire and extract .22 short cartridges.  O0
If you don't want to load them in one at a time, you'll need a .22 short magazine.

 Hello, I'm unsure if a Marlin would fit your criteria, but it's an accurate rifle for the money, takes 7 or 10 round mags, sights or scope work.

 Unsure on function with shorts and if the barrel is adequate for threading. What is the size (minimum) that you would need? I can check mine in the next day or so.

The Ruger American Rimfire also uses the modular stock modules.  You can get a better fitting stock for not much money.
The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed -- where the government refuses to stand for reelection and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees*. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once.

The Savage Mark II FVT is a bolt jar (just another rifle). It has front and rear aperture sights. My daughter shot rifleman with one at 17. Your will need to build up the comb.  Basic. Bull barrel. Use it, then teach your children.
