My first .22

I've read among this particular forum that a .22 would be one of the best first rifle to own.
I've looked around and landed on two particular guns of choice.

The first one is a Ruger 10/22
The second is a Marlin Model 982

I was hoping that some of you guys on here could help me out here. I've fired a Ruger .22 before at my uncles but never even held the 982 before. I was wondering if their is any difference between them. The pros and cons between the two guns. Approx. costs of the guns. Anything you know about them either from fact or personal experience.

Thanks for your help guys.

The 10/22 is extraordinarily customizeable. You can essentially customize it in any way you wwant.

Having a hard time finding anything about th e982...

The 10/22 is very popular, though Marlin generally makes a great gun too.

Id buy a Marlin lever action .22 and a ruger 10/22

Truth, and they last for decades (I have my fathers from 1960 and it still shoots straight as an arrow with no malfunctions). They also feed a lot of brands of ammo well.

The only problem I have with the 982 is the bolt action.

What about the Remington 597 ? From a few things I've read about it, it seems to be a close contender with the Ruger 10/22. Is there anything you guys could tell me about this as well.

Sorry for changing my mind around, Im just getting into this and not really sure what to look for in a gun. All I really plan on using it for or want in my gun would be for long distance plinking and accuracy.

There is no contender for a ruger 10/22

Stop being stubborn and just listen to what we're saying

You can't do "long distance" with a .22
They're really only good for 100 yards, 150 if you wanna push it, but the accuracy goes down the toilet. Not because of the gun, but because the round is so small. The wind just moves it every which way

you will have a hard time beating an 10/22.

I got my first one when i was 12 or so (in 1987ish) and i know i have put atleast half a million rounds through it since then.

Very low upkeep, the 10/22 is a tank, about the only alu framed firearm i like.

Another vote for a 10/22. Cheap, reliable and customizable.
