Gun-Day Sunday: A Comparison of Four .22s

Head-to-head (-to-head-to-head) look at four of the most popular .22 semi-autos available today, to wit– Ruger 10/22, Savage 64F, Mossberg 702, and Marlin Model 795.

If you have a good .22 LR, you have a light, handy, compact and versatile tool. If you ain’t got one, might want to think about that. It could be that semi-autos of all calibers will be hard to come by in the near future. Don’t think that the innocent old .22 plinker will be exempt. Get one while you can. Prices are competitive, too.

And ammo to go with.

    Which one would you choose? I place weight on accuracy, with logistics (having to replace sights and limited magazine supply points) just after.

      Good question. *I* have an old Stevens Savage Model 34 bolt action .22, so I’m not in the market right now. I think you couldn’t go far wrong with any of them; maybe the Ruger 10/22 with its huge aftermarket possibilities might hold the edge.

      What does everyone else say??
