I am looking to buy a new pump rifle, but I don't know which companies are presently offering pump 22 rifles. Can every help create a list?

Add Taurus to the list and that just about does it. BTW, my vote goes with the Remington 572.

I've worked on an older 572 and if I were after a pump I'd go with the Remington. I really liked the feel of it and it seemed well made. I tried to buy it from the guy but he wouldn't hear of it. The one I handled needed the hammer spring replaced due to years of use.

I like my 572 remington, was my first gun from my grandmother. I have a 67 model and they have improved the sights a bit, but everything else seems the same on the new ones. Only problem is that they have an aluminum reciever and after a while there gets to be a little slop in the barrel to reciever fit, which makes for mounting a scope useless. The iron sights work great though and are afixed to the barrel only. Best thing about mine is they will feed anything, from shorts, longs, long rifle, cb caps and even aguila's super colibri( wich are the quietest thing I've ever shot).
But one problem here is that the last time I saw a new one at gander mountain was 489 dollars, and a local sporting shop was the same price.

I've got the Rossi M62 pump, octagon barrel. It is a slick little gun made like the original Winchester. I have stoned all the working parts, redid the stock & forend so it looks great and shoots just as good. Just my .02 worth.

My $.02

I somewhat collect .22 pumps, and this is MHO:

New 572's have a Monte Carlo stock, and I can't align the sights. My mid 70's 572 is straight stocked and fits great. Trigger is nothing to write home about.

Personally I wouldn't own a new Taurus because of the Lawyer Mandated safety on top of the bolt. For less money you can probably scrounge a Rossi without the safety. I've procured 2 NIB in the last year.

Henry is okay I guess. I had to send mine back twice before it worked right. They have excellent service, and mine works now, but I rarely shoot it. It's a round barrel version.

Shooter grade Remmy 121's are around for afforable amounts.

All the Winchester's are out of my price league. I've got an 06 that's been a money pit, but I'll hopefully get it going one of these days.

If you buy a used one try to take it for a test drive first if possible. Other than that, buy a case of clay pigeons, a brick of ammo, and take a kid with you, while you create little shards of target,

Not quite sure why you specify "new", but the 572 Remington is probably the best of the current production. Having said that, if you can force yourself to buy used, get a Remington 121 or if you can't find one of them to suit you, a Winchester 61 is probably almost as good at twice the price. At least do yourself a favor and cycle the slide on a nice 121 vs. the best new 572.

I totally agree. The 61 is going to cost you, but they are worth it. Lots of parts available IF there is ever a problem.

The 121 guys have a point. The 572 is nice, but the 121 is from another era in firearms manufacuture. The 121/61 has a tight, precision feel that the 572 just can't match.

But the 572 can make a real nice rifle anyhow. I have a mid-'60s vintage 572. I refinished the stock and installed a Williams 5D receiver peep and ramped front sight. It looks good, shoots good, and its my second favorite rifle, only outdone by my 9422.

A savage 29 is a fine pump rifle and not too expensive either. Some of them were made under the stevens name and also premier and who know what else. That would probably be the cheapest way to go and they are very nice rifles.
