4. Marlin Series XT-22M
This series of Marlin XT-22M rimfire rifles sells for $239.99 each. You have the option between using a four or seven shot magazine, and the adjustable trigger and pinpoint accuracy will make it easy to hit your target.
The full-pistol grip complements the rifle’s ergonomic stock, which enables shooters to quickly shoulder their weapon.
The rear sight is adjustable, and you will be able to hunt small game easily while using this bolt-action rifle.
Marlin has several rock solid .22 rifles in this price range, so definitely do your homework. If you desire a semi-auto version, take a look at the very reasonably priced Marlin Model 60.
