alternative to 10/22

i've been looking for a good, used 10/22, priced accordingly, & almost everything i've seen is priced more than a new one. i did run across a really nice remington 597, stainless, bull barrel, lanminated stock with a simmons scope in the $250 range. i've also been offered a 10/22, also stainless, in the sporter stock, with a scope (to be named later, haven't seen it in person) for the same price.

question is, does anyone have any experience with the rem 597 & how does it compare to the 10/22? i'm not looking to "ninja" something up, so all the "flashy" accessories available really doesn't sway me one way or another. i did see that the rem has the 'hold open bolt" when empty from the factory instead of an add on for the ruger, other than that, they seem to be very similar rifles.

let me know what you think, should i jump on one of these rifles or continue to hold out for a better deal on a basic used 10/22...

Hold out for what YOU want not what just simply presents itself. That said, if all the 10/22's you're finding used are more than new, well... You're looking in the wrong shops or you should just step up and buy new. They're really not a lot of $$.

I have seen brand new 10/22's locally near me for $189.00 !! want stainless, they were $219.00 and the others were anywhere in between those 30 bucks difference... As was mentioned above... HOLD OFF for what *YOU* WANT!!! If you cant find used, cheap... grab a new one!!

Marlin model 60 is about the next best 22 rifle you can get.

The model 60 has micro adjustment sights that blows the 10/22 out of the water.

"Lever 10-22"? Perhaps you're thinking of the 96/22?

Aside from the 10/22, I'd say a Marlin, the Model 60 or 70, would be another great choice. Very accurate out of the box. Savage too.

i'm still looking around. wish i had those prices listed in an earlier post around here. the reg. basic 10/22's run on average around $239 & the stainless starts about $260. thats at the big box stores with gunshops running a bit higher than that. i'm also tracking a couple on gunbroker to see if one slips thru the cracks cheap. i did find a listing there for a stainless/synthetic for $199 n.i.b. odd thing is the barrel is stainless, but the receiver is black. never seen that combo before??

still looking for reviews on that remington 597...

We had some really nice looking 597's at our local Wally world with no iron sights and a 2-7 scope. I don't recall the price but if it shoots as nice as it looks, it's a winner. Have you tried rimfirecentral.com ?

kwg

I have seen the 10/22's for less money at the gun shows than we are selling them at Walmart. kwg

ended up going to look at a used stainless 10/22 in the fancy sporter stock with a simmons scope & se thru rings today & brought it home. it is in pristine condition & i picked it up cheaper than a new standard blue carbine so i'm happy. i'll probably change the optics out for a better scope, but will just enjoy shooting on the cheap for a while.

heres a quick pic for now. will get a few more when the house isn't so crowded for the holiday weekend

Wise choice LP. It looks like you brought home a winner there. Now you can start adding accessories, eh?

thanks! yeah, gonna try to restrain myself a little on the accessories for now. maybe a good sling, extended mag release, a few extra mags & better optics for now. i'll be happy with the ability to shoot all day for around $20!

i did do some research today & found that besides this being a 2007 production model, it is one of the lipsey's "dealer exclusive" rifles produced by ruger with the 22" barrel. knew something was up when i noticed it stood taller in the safe than my mini 30 with the flash hider...
