My best Tm buy I think $259. with a nice old japanses built tasco 4x
Marlin 781. from the 70s I think. I have developed a like of old tube fed 22s.
Was filthy on the inside but a good clean , lighten up the trigger and feed and she didnt miss a beat,
and its not at all fussy. Bit windy so I only shot it at 25yds
