I'm choosing a new .22 LR for the range shooting from the bench at 50 and 100 yards, but I also want to practice with it off hand. That's where I start running in circles. I like the CZ 425 Varmint (but not the wood stock), the Savage Mrk. II BV) best for off the bench shooting, but the Ruger K77/22VBZ off hand because I like the laminated stock and the longer barrel seems to make pointing it easier. I've ruled out the Rem. 504-T for the 20" Barrel and the Marlin 980V because I can't find a laminate stock I like for it.
I guess I could look for a used gun of some discontinued type but don't know rimfire guns well enough to know what model to look for.
I could use some input here guys.
