What's your favorite rimfire rifle? Near 40 years ago I had the choice between a lightly used Ruger 10/22 or a new Remington 77, both were under $100. I never dreamed what the market would do years later with those 77's. I didn't care for the new fangeled plastic stock so I got the Ruger and never looked back. I still own that Ruger, well now my son does. We recently did the AR22 conversion, added a red dot sight, and he loves shooting it. In searching for a replacement .22 for myself, I fell into a very nice 77 for a steal at $150. I grabbed it up knowing I could get $400-$500 for it, buy a new Ruger take down, and pocket some cash. Well I decided to take it out shooting. I initially put a small scope on it but quickly removed it because it changed the feel. Wow!! these things are light, and I'm very surprised at how accurate it is. I've decided to hang onto this one.
