Whenever I add multiples of the same caliber to my collection, I make it a different variant (So I tell the wife). In .22 I think a semi-auto (fun), a bolt Action (accuracy) and a pump or lever action. They are all different "tools" with different abilities. Hard to beat the 10/22 for a everyday SA. I really like the CZ 452/455 line for accurate well made Bolt Action rifles. Then my favorite pump is a Remington 552 as mentioned above (Look for older used), but a Marlin 39A is also a great Lever Action. I think owning a rifle that can shoot shorts,longs and LR and also not have a detachable magazine is a big plus. So decide what is "next" on your needs list and remember you can never have too many 22 rifles.

(who am I kidding... it's for me, then my son ha)

Edited to add I just wish it came with the option of a wood stock. I'll have to find something aftermarket.
Not sure what young equals. My boy 11, can't operate the bolt on ours, but he's not the most dexterous kid around. It takes some pressure forward and down simultaneously to close the bolt on our xt-22 , it has maybe 100 cycles. I recently took it to WV, did some shooting with friends, and with iron sights was hitting exploding 2" targets at 50yds. I noted a couple friends had initial problem closing the bolt. Check out the Browning T-Bolt.

Semi auto are great 22s, but a lever action or a pump action 22 is a pleasant change in rifles. Easy to learn and shoot with. External hammers and good sights on most models make them a pleasure to shoot. Good way to train a young shooter.

Ruger Precision Rimfire is a great bolt action .22 easy to shoot and accurate.

I sold my 10/22 and ended up with a Savage MkII bolt action. Been a great choice !!

I'll second that and it will run circles around my 10/22. I also have a 22 WMR version and it will give my Savage 93 a run for the money.

Honestly my 10/22 has been feeling a little boring lately. Powercustom target hammer and extended charging handle and volqaurtsen bolt release. I cut down the beech wood stock, removed the butt plate and recontoured the rear of the stock, sanded and stained it. Cleaned the chamber with some steel wool. Oh and volquartsen extractor.

I mean, it looks nice, but I didnt even swap the barrel or go nuts on the bolt and itll shoot sub 1 50yd 25 round groups all day long. It isnt a one hole touching gun, but with good ammo it is almost boring accuracy. With minimags or Target SV I can often shoot holes touching 5 and 10 shot groups at 50yds and Ive had plenty of 1 groups at 100yds.

I am really thinking of looking for an old tube feed bolt action 22lr. Something with a bit more character to it. Till then though this is my only 22lr

SIG 522 is a lot of fun.
