FireArm Question...

Greetings,

Wondering if any of you have any knowledge of current new and used prices and availability for the following rimfires:

Marlin 39A
Browning BL 22
Winchester 9422 (can you even find these used anymore?)

I'm looking for a good quality lever rimfire to use with my son. There aren't many to choose from on the shelves in the Great White North and the price seems steep. I'm wondering if I should head across the border to import a rimfire.

Thanks in advance for your input.

I have to ask why the level action...? Are you trying to train mini chuck connors?

I love all three brands listed above... But personally, I'd have him step into the modern world and seriously consider a Marlin Model 60 .22 LR semi auto (about $160 at the local walmart)... You can have Academy install a cheap tasco 4x scope on it for under $30.

Something fun about the lever action. I also like a little thought and patience between each shot. My son's accuracy is way better with a bolt action. When we use the semi it always feels like a race to empty the magazine. This is just for plinking and targets at the cottage.

When I take kyle on hunts, he fills his gun all the way up (4+1) in his bolt action. That's fine... But then he has the stock mounted bullet holder... Overkill... I take 3-4 bullets total to the lease... All in how you teach the boy. don't give him too many rounds... Then again, kyle wont walk in the dark... LOL

Lets say I had a coon or squirrel under my feeder, and I felt inclined to eliminate it... my semi auto Marlin M60 I could pump 2-3 shots into it in no time.

Like I said though, all three brands you list are awesome.

These are kind of fun. I don't know if they make a .22 but they are a blast to shoot

In the lever action category, consider a Henry rifle. I have one in .22LR and in .17 HMR. The .17 is a great varmint rifle, and I think the Golden Boy versions are really pretty guns in addition to being great shooters. In an effort to emulate Chuck Connor as well as facilitiate shooting with gloves, I put a large lever loop on mine.

For a .22 scope, don't bother with a darn Tasco piece of crap. Get a Simmons 3-9 22 Mag.

I really hate .22's with scopes. I just don't get the need unless you build yourself a benchrest rimfire rig.

Levers work GREAT with receiver sights, I use a Williams on my 39, and don't bother with the aperture ring whatsoever, it will easily hit the bottom of cans at 30 yards offhand.

The real answer though is that depending on the size of your son, and if you want to use it - The CZ rifles are great, the scout is a good option for kids, or opt for a full size if he's bigger.
