Hello everyone,

Ive been thinking about getting a VERY cheap rimfire lately, preferably .22 long or magnum, and was wondering if anyone had any ideas of anything that is reasonably accurate and under 100 bucks. Im not looking to buy it right now but just get some info. Im OBVIOUSLY looking for used.

Thanx, Cody Kitchen

I would also have to agree with the Cooey :wink: !I own two.The model 60 and the model 39.For an open sight,well built Canadian made gun,you can't go wrong. Great little shooters and cheap[$40.00-$100.00]If you want to go for scoping your gun,you'd be better off getting something else.Scope mounts are hard to find,and you'll need a gunsmith to do the installing.The modle 39 is the single shot.You can shoot CB short,short,or long rifle.I;m sure others dislike Cooey,but each to his own :D I like them!

my 39 came to me from my father when i got my pal (his fac expired but he held on to it) my 600 i payed 55$ for a wooden chest that was locked and the owner didnt have a key for it. inside was the rifle, a bunch of adult magazines, a old dried up loaf of bread, and a football from the date of the mags i assume all were locked in there around may 1974 lol

I just got the Marlin 795 for 140 bucks brand new, nice little semi-auto,
very light, only 4.5 lbs. I installed a REX Red dot Scope and it's still
very light. The last three nights I put thru about 2500 rounds to it.
Accuracy is amazing on this little gun. At 30 yards you can almost use
any ammo to get 1/4" to 1/2" grouping. At 50 yards likes the Eley and
the Lapua so far.

Nice combo sniper!......
The REX Red dot Scope on the Marlin 795 makes for a nice combo.......I enjoyed shooting it the other night...... the characteristics of the way it handles and shoots are wonderful, and for around $300CA it's a sweet deal........ :wink:

Its probably going to be tough to get a .22 magnum in that price range, but .22LR is good enough for most jobs I use a rimfire for.

If you check out the Access November 2006 ad at www.gobles.ca they have a couple of cheap .22 rifles. (sorry I know nothing about these models)

T8515 Ithaca X5C Lightning 22LR w/Clip & 4x Custom 22 Scope – VG $150.00

T8968 Winchester 67, 22LR Single Shot Rifle – G+ $100.00

Also, in Gobles regular used long gun section:

8815 Cooey 60, 22 LR Bolt Action, Tube feed G $129.00

8865 Lakefield/Mossberg MkII, 22 LR Bolt Action w/Clip VG $119.00

8587 Cooey 39, 22 LR, Single Shot VG $99.95

8588 Cooey 60, 22 LR Bolt Action w/4x15 Scope G $99.00

London isn't too far away from you, fellow SW Ontarian. :) I'm visiting Gobles a couple of times a month if you want me to keep an eye open for you.

Sheesh - $25 for a rifle! You'll spend as much on your first brick of .22LR ammo :)

Come to think of it, I paid $25 for a .22 cal boresnake yesterday at CT.
