Here are some pics of ones I enjoy

Top one is an Izhmash Biathlon 7-2-KO with a Target master 6-24x50 scope. Straight pull action and spare mags aplenty....

Second one is a CZ455 22LR with full wood

And the third is a EM332 action in a customised laminate stock. It was originally a Blaster by Boyds stock blank designed for semi autos that with much work and care was fitted to the action. Reshaped the leading edge of the comb, extended the palm grip up into the stock for the lifted trigger position. Recessed trigger and handmade trigger guard.

All three are very accurate.

After watching the biathlon during the winter olympics those straight pull rifles look very nice!

The CZ is the 455 which I can get the spare barrels for. Thinking either a WMR or HMR just for fun...

Re the Biathlon, I think I might know where there is one for sale still if anyone likes it, but my one is staying put.....

Some beautiful rifles there - from the Bradley through timandtalon's three, and the Winny 9422. Very nice. And while I'm not really a ruger fan that stock with the satin black paint is a gem. Great looking 10/22. Have done quite a few 22s in satin black enamel and they can really come up well.

Some of my favourites are not kept long unfortunately as they are often too pretty for hard hunting work in and out of truck. We've had a great bunny hunting site in Cantab for many years, at times topping 1000 in an evening, and averaging 300 per visit over a year - so our rifles have had to be durable accurate workers rather than feature firearms. Had a brace of Winchester 9422s last year - one in 22LR and one in 22WMR. Absolute beauties - but I don't like scratching $1000+ 22s!

Favourite 22s for the everyday hard work have been CZ452, Ruger model 96 lever action, Marlin 60 DLX, Norinco EM332, and polished/chopped Norinco JW15 shorties. Reliable and very capable performers. Here's an old thread with some pics and range targets for some very good worker 22s - none of which cost me more than $250:

Brno 581 Auto .22LR.  Manufactured 1959.
Leupold Compact 4x scope in steel rings. I bought this one fourteen years ago.

All original, near mint condition. Beautifully made and accurate for a semi-auto.



My first .22 was a Voere bolt action that I bought new for $44 the day I turned 16 in 1968.

I wanted a Brno Mod 2 but it was $59 and my paper route money didn't stretch that far.

I wish I still had that Voere as it was an extremely accurate rifle and it killed hundreds of rabbits, hares and possums and a couple of pigs.

My hunting mate and I used to bike to our hunting spots with our .22 rifles slung over our shoulders (no bags or covers) bolts and magazines in and most passing motorists gave us a friendly wave. Can never remember a farmer turning us down if we asked to shoot on his property.

Many times, we hitched hiked with our .22's slung over our shoulders down to some of the bigger sheep properties near Taupo from Tokoroa on No.1 Highway. Never had a problem getting a ride and quite often it would be a woman driver by herself that would pick us up.

Try doing that these days.  Sad

Nothing particularly exotic here but they both get the job done: top an older marlin 882 .22mag, bottom cz452 varmint .22lr.  Both shoot 1in@100yd and the odd 0.5in group on a good day.

Some nice rifles on this thread, especially that brno semi auto  Smiley

My newer but now sold JW-15. shortened to 16inch, suppressor removed for the photo.



My daughter with my current JW. It's actually an older model but the wooden stock was real beat up from being on a quad and rubbing on truck roof or window when spotlighting, so I stuck on one of those cheap plastic stocks for durability. My daughter is always keen to get to use it.

My Cooper 57M in 22 Mag just after I bought it


Next I'll post a couple of friends rifles.
Brno model 1 and model 2


and his CZ452


Another friend did this rifle, Brno Model 1


The above rifle was patterned after this rifle, another Brno model 1 only the barrel is shorter on this one.
  

If it ain't broke, I can fix it 'til it is!
