23 Best .22 LR Rifles For Sale – Nov 2019

Tactical solutions X Ring Review

 

We don’t give much thought to the best 22 rifles on the market, because we tend to like bigger and sexier guns. Yes, we’re childish and we like gunporn. 

 

But the truth is that most novice shooters start out with a 22 rifle and you should have one in your arsenal, because it’s the cheapest rifle training you can buy. By the time you have plinked through 1000 rounds of ammo, a cheap .22 LR will have paid for itself.  

 

You also don’t need an AR-15 for every hunt and it will make a big mess of a squirrel. So if you’re hunting varmints, rabbits, squirrels, possums and all that jazz, then a 22 rifle is the best option. 


Rimfire rifles get the job done with small game hunting, when you might not be in the mood for proper game or you just want to pick up some shooting tips and practice shooting technique.

 

Rats? Get a 22LR, or a Cat…


If you have got rats and want to get rid of them the old-school way, then you need a .22 LR Rifle on sale.  Well, you could go full tactical on them with  the very best 22 handguns for sale.


But that’s your call. If you go full silent assassin with two suppressed pistols, it could be a messed up kind of fun…


Basically there’s no downside to the  22 and a lot of people actually prefer hunting with .22LR rifles. Technically, it’s more of a challenge to headshot a moving squirrel with a .22 than it is to blow a hole in the side of a deer at 300 yards with a .308.


It allows you to target vermin you’re comfortable killing, too, which is an increasing thing these days.


Massive Variety of 22 Rifles


You can have an old-school Henry AR-7, a Wild West lever arch rifle or a cutting edge Tactical Solutions bolt action with a threaded barrel that is suppressor ready. Whatever gun you want to buy, we have the best 22LR gun for sale for you.


Still not sure how to buy guns online? Don’t worry, we have a handy guide here. You could make your first order in minutes and save serious money.


This kind of hunting is more readily available to most of us, too, so if you don’t shoot your .22 LR rifle that often. Consider getting it out the closet or checking out these guns for sale below.


22 Rifles Sharpen Shooting Technique

It will sharpen your shooting skills across the board and you can buy thousands of round of ammunition for your 22LR rifle for $150. The price just isn’t comparable with AR-15 ammo, or heavier calibers.


So, work on your technique at closer distances, with smaller targets. Nail shots with a .22 rifle, every time, hit fast moving targets and track animals across the ground and you will be just as lethal with a bigger rifle.


The longer distances just won’t faze you. But if you can’t hit the target with a 22LR, then you’ve got flaws in your technique that you can iron out before you break out the big guns.


It’s a cheaper, safer way to do things. So get on the .22 LR Rifle now if you haven’t already.

 

So what is the best 22 Rifle for sale in 2018? Here are our picks.  


The Best 22LR Rifles For Sale in 2019


Ruger 10/22 Carbine Stainless Steel rifle on sale. Arguably the best 22 Long Rifle ever.

1. Ruger 10/22 Carbine Stainless Steel 


  • Price: $344.99
  • Barrel Length: 18.5″
  • Total Length: 37″
  • Weight: 4.67lb
  • Capacity: 10+1


We can’t deny Ruger it’s rightful place at the top of the 22 Long Rifle list. This is America’s favorite 22 rifle and has been basically forever.


It’s a company that has produced some of the best 22 rifles in the world for decades. It introduced the 10/22 in 1964 and the design really hasn’t changed that much.  It didn’t need to.

 

It weighs just 4.67lb, it’s a brilliant design and Ruger has sold millions of them.  


That synthetic stock is designed to last, like the rest of this stunning rifle. It’s one of the best rifles in history and will take its rightful place in the firearms Hall of Fame.


The stainless steel barrel means this gun should last longer than the bog standard Ruger 10/22 and it isn’t that much more expensive. On balance, we think it’s worth it. The stainless steel gun looks cool too and the detachable magaine is as good as any tubular magazine in the industry.


Aftermarket Mags For Big Capacity


The tubular magazine holds a solid 10+1, but you can get an aftermarket add-on Ruger mag that takes 25+1 rounds. The scope mounts turn this into a sniper rifle of sorts, although you can go with a quality red dot and it’s the best hunting rifle here in our opinion.


There are so many variants of the classic Ruger 10/22, from a tactical, through to a backpacker takedown and sniper rifle, that you should take a look at all the options.


Check out your options for a Ruger 10/22 Rifle for sale here.



Anschutz 1416 HB 22 LR for sale. A spectacular target shooting rifle you can take into competition.

2. Anschutz 1416 HB 22 LR


  • Price: $999.00 (On Sale)
  • Barrel Length: 23 inch
  • Total Length: 41 inch
  • Weight: 6lb
  • Capacity: 5+1


If money just doesn’t matter and you want the very best 22 LR you can find, well you should probably take a look at Anschutz rifles for sale.


This isn’t even close to the most expensive one you can find. It’s more of an entry-level effort. You can easily spend upwards of $3,500 on an Anschutz rifle.


Are they that good? Yes, is the simple answer. If this gun for sale was just a touch cheaper then we might have given it the overall win.


Let’s be honest this won’t be the first bolt-action rimfire rifle you buy. If you just love the caliber, though, and plenty of people do, you might find yourself gravitating towards serious weapons like this one.


It comes with a single stage 5098 match trigger that owners claim is worth the price of admission on its own. Add the 23 inch barrel that gives you velocity and accuracy and it’s easy to see why this rifle has turned into a firm favorite with serious shooters.


Get This Rifle a Proper Scope


The Anschutz rifle is drilled and tapped for a proper scope, a solid Match 64 bolt action with a cam cocking system, a claw extractor and a sliding lateral safety.


You can get a classic rifle with a walnut stock right through to a lightweight sniper rifle for professional biathlon competitors. We kind of like the wood stock. It’s the best gun here, if you’ve got the spare funds and can justify the purchase with man math. If you’re just using this semi-auto rimfire rifle to headshot rats in your yard, this might be a bit excessive.


 

Smith & Wesson M&P15-22 Sport - The best AR-style 22 rifle on sale in 2019.

 

3. Smith & Wesson M&P15-22 Sport MOE SL 22LR 

 

  • Price: $299.99
  • Barrel Length: 16″
  • Total Length: 33.75″
  • Weight: 5.5lb
  • Capacity: 25+1


We like the AR look and feel of this Smith & Wesson platform. It’s a perfect training gun, for that precise reason, and it’s not a gun you have to get used to. 

 

You can just pick this semi-auto rifle up and go, treat it like an AR-15 and it will plink cheap ammo all day long.  Even the two-stage trigger is designed to mimic the heavier AR-15 with a two-pound pull and a 5lb break.


It’s a great way to get used to a semi-auto rifle and you even get proper iron sights to practise with and the rear sight folds down to fit a red dot or optic. As a practise tool, it might be the best gun here.


It’s a surprisingly good substitute for  an AR-15 in your hands, even though the barrel is 18 inches. The whole gun is 32.5 inches collapsed, or 37.5 inches fully extended. So it’s an AR-15 lite and the synthetic stock is all part of the AR crossover.


The mag holds 25 rounds, plus one in the chamber, so you can fire off the shots if you’re after a fast-moving critter.


The Smith & Wesson isn’t as accurate as some on this list, so if you want long distance potshots then you should go for something else. If you go the sniper route, then the Ruger is the best for the money.


As a practise gun, though, running drills or simply plinking at the range to get your eye in, we think this is the best 22 Long Rifle out there.

 

Is this the best .22 LR Rifle you can buy? At this price, we think it is the best .22 LR Rimfire Rifle in the world right now.  I guess you could say the Smith & Wesson M&P15-22 Sport is the best tactical .22LR rifle on this list.



Henry AR-7 Survival Rifle, the classic 22 rifle that is one of the world's most famous firearms.

4. Henry Repeating Arms AR-7 Survival Rifle 


  • Price: $249.99
  • Barrel Length: 18.5″
  • Total Length: 37″
  • Weight: 4.67lb
  • Capacity: 10+1


This semi-auto rimfire rifle is an oddity to say the least, but survivalists swear by this eccentric looking gun that breaks down into three pieces and can go wherever you do.  The Henry AR-7 is a legend and preppers swear by them.


Basically the Henry survival rifle has become a part of firearms folklore and is one of the most famous guns on the market.

 

The whole rimfire rifle packs in to the synthetic stock that is even designed to keep the rifle afloat if you drop it in a river, it weighs just 2.5lb and you get 8+1 rounds. It’s maybe not the best 22LR rifle for sale, but it is one of the most practical.


Everybody should probably have one of these, because if you’re going hiking and maybe want to pick off birds or bunnies for your dinner, then it’s an ideal ‘just in case’ gun. 


This is the legendary Survival AR-7 and absolutely everybody should own one. Do you have a Henry AR-7 at your place? Then you know what to do. Buy your Henry Survival rifle now.


 



Mossberg 715t Tactical Flat Top 22LR rifle on sale at the best price at the USA Gun Shop, the United States' favorite gunbroker online.

5. Mossberg 715t Tactical Flat Top Rifle

  • Price: $229.99
  • Barrel Length: 16.25 inch
  • Total Length: 33-36.75 inch
  • Capacity: 25+1
  • Weight: 5.2lb

We like the Smith & Wesson more as a semi-automatic rifle in 22LR, but the 715T tactical rifle does come at an awfully compelling price point. It’s on sale right now, is the only thing, and we don’t know how long it’s going to last.


This rifle is an evolution of the legendary Mossberg 702 Plinkster, and it’s another rifle that apes the AR-15 platform. The collapsible black synthetic stock is a little more basic, the handguard is a little less free float and Mil-spec and the detachable magazine isn’t ready for war, but then this is a super cheap rifle that should go all day at the shooting range.


Do that instead of taking your regular AR-15 and the 715t Tactical flat top will have paid for itself with cheap ammunition. So it will pretty much cost you money not to buy one.


The flat top looks the part, too. Get a red dot up top and the lethal chainsaw attachment slung underneath and Leftists everywhere will lose their collective minds about your vicious assault rifle.


Thompson Center Line T/CR22 rifle on sale now. Get the best price on this top 22 long rifle. Buy guns online now.

6. Thompson Center Line T/CR22

  • Price: $299.99
  • Barrel: 17 inch
  • Total Length: 35 inch
  • Capacity: 10+1
  • Weight: 4.4lb

The Thompson Center Line T/CR22 is so light that it’s one of the best 22 Rifles for children.


It isn’t the most advanced rifle here, but the Thompson Center Line has stellar user reviews. In fact regular shooters often prefer their Thompson Center Line with its innovative autoloading bolt system to the much more lauded Ruger.


Among hardcore 22 Long Rifle enthusiasts and preppers, this simple 22 rifle has achieved cult status and is one of the approved guns, knives and tools that you’ll find on pretty much every apocalyptic nut’s website. It isn’t a high price, it is more durable than the Energizer bunny and actual owners love their guns.


So yeah, get one and see.


The legendary Chiappa Firearms Little Badger. A single shot 22LR lightweight rifle that has turned into a cult hero.

7. Chiappa Firearms Little Badger

  • Price: $178.99
  • Barrel Length: 16.5 inch
  • Overall Length: 32 inch
  • Weight: 3.5lb
  • Capacity: 1

Single shot rifles maybe don’t get the respect they deserve round here, but we’re about to make amends with a frankly giddy tribute to the Chiappa Firearms Little Badger.


This is as pure and basic as survival rifles get, with a wireframe, a 2.9lb weight and one of the simplest mechanisms out there. The hammer is the safety and this is an ideal starter rifle if you want to get people into guns and over the initial intimidation.


Because the Little Badger is cute, fun even, and nobody could really be intimidated by this thing. The one shot, snap open, reload process means you think about each shot and nobody is going to panic and mag dump their Little Badger as people scatter in all directions.

Considering the weight, you get a surprising amount of tactical gear.There’s a Picatinny rail for a red dot, and another so you could add a pistol grip or other tactical gear. You can put a sling on it, break it down and throw it in a backpack or simply let it hang loose in your hand. This weight is nothing, and that’s the beauty of this gun.


Of course, this single shot rifle is, quite literally, a one trick pony. It gets blasted into the weeds by the modern semi auto guns on everything except weight and simplicity. It’s beautifully simple engineering, too, which gives some of us more sexual thrills than we’d actually like to admit to.


The ATI GSG-16 22LR for sale. It looks a lot like a Heckler & Koch MP5, but not too much for the lawyers

8. ATI GSG-16 22LR

  • Price: $349.99
  • Barrel Length: 16.25 inch
  • Total Length: 36 inch
  • Weight: 5lb
  • Capacity: 22+1

The first incarnation of the semi auto ATI GSG-16 22LR looked too much like the HK MP5 SMG and Heckler & Koch got the legal heavies involved. This is round to, a gun that looks just different enough, while clearly aping the style of the 9mm sub-machine gun legend.


You will either love the long faux silencer or you won’t and it is a novelty gun if we’re honest. The CZ, for instance,is technically better and yet doesn’t offer anything spectacularly different. This does.


There’s a good reason for the fake muzzle device too. It gives you a 16 inch barrel and ensures that this gun is classified as a rifle. It also shoots like one.


ATI specialize in tribute acts and the Sig Sauer Mosquito 22LR copy is one of the best 22 pistols for sale in 2019. This feels like a bit of a novelty gun in a way, because it isn’t a faithful recreation, at all. If you love the MP5 and don’t want to pay more than $2,600 for the civilian 9mm SMG from HK, the HK SP5K, then this could be an option.


The stock does collapse and there isn’t really much more to say. It’s a solid homage, a tribute act. They’re never going to win anything, but they can put a smile on your face.


Mossberg Blaze 47 on sale. This AK-47 style 22LR rifle looks the business and is certainly a unique semi-auto.

8. Mossberg Blaze 47

  • Price: $328.99
  • Barrel Length: 16.5 inch
  • Overall Length: 35.75 inch
  • Weight: 3.5lb

Sometimes you want your semi auto 22 LR to look like an AK-47. You just do.


You can say it’s a training gun. It’s a good enough excuse for the AR-22 shooters, or whatever you want to call them, so it’s a good enough excuse for the 7.62x39mm brigade.


At 3.5lb this semi-auto is a lighter rifle, it has to be said. But the AK-47 fixed stock is real wood and the blued finish is probably better than the original thanks to the wonders of mass manufacturing.


That aside, this is a solid semi-auto rimfire rifle that comes with a fiber optic sight and great user reviews.


The Mossberg Blaze should put a smile on your face every time you take it to the gun range, at least.

And if you like old Russian guns, or new ones, then you’ll already be mashing the buy it now button, screaming shut up and take my money. We get it…


KRISS Defiance DMK22C. A real AR training platform in 22 LR. It's expensive, but it might be the best AR-15 style 22 rifle on the market.

9. KRISS Defiance DMK22C

  • Price: $759.99
  • Barrel Length: 16.5 inch
  • Total Length: 32-35.25 inch
  • Weight 7.1lb
  • Capacity: 15+1


If you just cant stand the cheap finish on the other 22 LR AR-style rifles, then you might be the ideal person for the Defiance DMK22C.

This is an absolutely immaculate semi auto rifle, perfectly finished down to the dramatic front end with an Alien-effect where the muzzle brake emerges from the mouth of that free float handguard.

This semi-auto rimfire rifle is a cut above, it really is. The stock is a 6 position adjustable stock, not one that looks like it might be, and the whole gun looks like it was built to AR standards, not just appearances.

That’s because this was designed as a real AR training platform, rather than a novelty plinking gun. It’s the right weight, the right size and it’s built to last.

It’s a high price you have to pay for that, though, and you could buy a much sexier gun with this kind of money in almost any other caliber.


Ruger Precision Rimfire 22LR Rifle on sale. A great precision 22LR for target shooting.

10. Ruger Precision Rimfire Rifle 22LR


  • Price: $399.99
  • Barrel Length: 18″
  • Total Length: 35″”-38.5″
  • Weight: 6.8lb
  • Capacity: 10+1/15+1


This is an advanced .22 LR rifle, which does come  with a price premium. But there’s a good reason to spend the extra money.


The big brother Ruger Enhanced Precision is one of the finest long distance rifles you’ll find for the money. You can get it chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor and ring steel at 1200 yards.


The bigger rifle IS a target shooter at heart. So is this bolt-action rimfire rifle.


So, the Ruger Precision Rimfire rifle is your training gun for the real long rifle range. It’s a way to get comfortable with the mass of adustability in the buttstock and it’s a way to learn to visualise the world through the scope.


Everything is on a smaller scale with the .22 LR rifle, from the small game you’re targeting through to the distance you shoot at the range. But if you can master this gun, then the larger Ruger will feel like family when you head out longdistance shooting and put the small guns back in the gun safes.


It’s a supremely accurate 22 Long Rifle based on an AR platform. So you can stabilise it properly with a bipod and really think about each shot. Like the Creedmoor, you will find you can really stretch the range with this rifle and you can learn about the impact of the wind and drop-off on a simpler scale.


The Ruger Precision Rimfire rifle comes with a Picatinny rail, a pistol grip, a 10+1 or 15+1 box magazine, so you can order from any state. The bolt action is well thought out and solid, more solid than some of the others on the list.


There might be a touch too much adjustability in this bolt action rifle if you’re looking for a genuine field gun. But then you can just choose a basic set-up that works and shoot round issues as they arise.


An adjustable trigger is just the start and you could spend hours getting the set-up just right on the stock.


It’s one of the few rimfire rifles you can really tune at the range, though, and it will help you with your long distance shooting technique. It’s the best .22LR rifle in some ways, not in others. But it could certainly be a great addition to your .22LR rifles collection.



The Marlin Model 60 Micro Groove is one of the finest 22 LR rifles on the market, in the budget price band at least.

11. Marlin Model 60 Micro Groove


  • Price: $169.99
  • Barrel Length: 19″
  • Total Length: 37.5″
  • Weight: 5.5lb
  • Capacity: 14+1


The Marlin Model 60 is one of those guns that will pay for itself with a single day at the range, it’s just that cheap.  


The Marlin Model 60 has also remained one of the most popular 22 rifles in the world for a reason. It’s just a simple, honest gun that is an ideal starter gun for a novice with a basic, synthetic stock.  


You get a 19-inch microgrooved, rifled barrel, which helps accuracy. The tubular magazine holds 14 rounds, so you won’t have to reload constantly and it’s a solid gun that you’ll love to shoot. It weighs 5.5lb, so it’s not the lightest here, but it is one of the cheapest. If you want a rimfire rifle on a budget, start here. 


There’s no rail so you’re stuck with the iron sights on this classic long rifle, but then the whole point is how to learn how to shoot and the Marlin Model 60 is a great gun if you want to practise backyard plinking or hit the range.  


The Marlin Model 60 is a simple, honest starter rifle for sale. At this price, what more do you want?

  • Price: $194.99
  • Barrel Length: 21 inch

  • Capacity: 5+1


Do you just want a cheap bolt action rimfire rifle? You just want to get started shooting, or maybe you want a simple starter rifle for a child then the Savage Mark II FV is pretty much perfect.


Savage sits just behind Ruger when it comes to its contribution to the caliber. Well, it’s quite a way behind, but it’s still one of the biggest players in the cheap 22 rifle sector.


The Savage Mk2 FV is a great little gun with a button-rifled, heavy carbon steel barrel for a surprising level of accuracy in this price range.


The AccuTrigger system also protects against accidental discharges and also offers a crisp and clean break. There’s a rugged, synthetic stock and not much else apart from that.

  • Price: $1255
  • Barrel Length: 16.5″
  • Total Length: 34.75″
  • Weight: 4.6lb
  • Capacity: 10+1

 

Tactical Solutions made its name with upgraded barrels for the Ruger 10/22. Now it has gone a few steps further and created a high-end rimfire rifle, basically along the lines of the Ruger, which is just way more accurate if you want to push the bounds when it comes to distance. 


So if you like shooting targets you need binoculars for with a 22 rifle, then you really need to take a look at the X-Ring Takedown. Like the Henry AR-7 Survival rifle, you can break it down for easy transport in a backpack. Unlike the Henry Survival rifle, it costs a lot of money.


This is a designer .22 LR rifle, absolutely, and it comes at a high price, but it’s also a brilliant shooting semi-auto rimfire rifle.


It comes with a Picatinny rail and the scope mount is ready for the best optic for 22 LR long rifle that you can afford. With that, and a little experience to account for the wind and inevitable droop on the long-distance shots, and you really can make 150-yard bullseyes with this thing.  


It will test your marksmanship in the same way that a 6.5 Creedmoor will at 1200 yards, but it will be much cheaper and simpler to set up.  


So if you’re a serious shooter, then this is a great gun with a slick mini bolt action and charging handle.  It might just be the best .22LR rifle for sale right now.

This one looks like a consumer-oriented finish, unless the armed forces and the police need semiauto rimfire 22 Rifles with a familiar shotgun feel, for some reason…

The CZ 512 American is hardly a groundbreaking 22LR rifle, bt it is well finished, the user reviews online say it’s worth every penny of its substantial price tag and the real walnut stock finish means it stands out from the crowd.


It’s an expensive 22LR, but it’s a wonderful thing to look at and it’s one of those rimfire rifles for sale that just looks inherently right.


Is that enough to justify one in your collection? Possibly…


You can strip this gun with a coin, it’s basic and yet it’s beautiful. I like this one a little more than I should.



Savage Arms FXP 22LR

18. Savage Arms 64 FSS 

  • Price: $189.99
  • Barrel Length: 21″
  • Total Length: 40″
  • Weight: 5.5lb
  • Capacity: 10+1

 

If you’re looking for a cheap 22 rifle that is optic ready then this is your Huckleberry.  Wel, it’s one of them. 

 

It’s a simple gun, a classic design that can handle everything from target shooting to small game hunting. It takes a detachable 10-round mag and you can order a bigger one.  


The Savage Mark 2 is a simple weapon, which is what you might actually want with a rimfire rifle. Not everybody wants the full bore AR-15 or game hunting experience.


You get a blued carbon-steel barrel, a black synthetic stock and it’s all pretty basic stuff. But at this price, it’s a great starter rifle for young shooters and people that just want to practise without spending a fortune.

Now we have to tread carefully here. Extensive sensitivity training taught us that it could be sexist, or at the very least misogynistic, to suggest that the Ruger American RF Talo Compact Muddy Girl is aimed at girls.


The word girl is in the title, but if we assume something from that then we are patriarchal monsters. I know that now.


I mean there are flashes of pink, but it’s that lurid 1980s heavy metal pink, or 1980s ski-suits, or 1980s quite a lot of stuff actually. It’s a gun that could appear in a Def Leppard video, although not in the hands of the drummer, obviously.


Men wore pink back then, so it’s probably fine. Anything goes in 2019 too, so go wild with your gender identity, whatever you have decided to be today, and shoot a pink rifle at a gun range near you.


Anyway, underneath the lurid paint splash camo lies a pretty standard Ruger American Rimfire rifle. So it’s a bolt action 22 LR hunting rifle with relatively few thrills.


Remington 597 22 Long Rifle on sale. A classic bolt action

 

20. Remington 597  

  • Price: $179.99
  • Barrel Length: 20″
  • Total Length: 40″
  • Weight: 5.5lb
  • Capacity: 10+1

 


Remington has taken a bit of a beating, PR wise, in recent years. But the simple fact is this Remington model is a great 22 rifle and it comes with some neat touches. 

 

The 20 inch barrel is great for velocity and accuracy and you also get twin guide rails that Remington says gives you better stability, reliability and accuracy.  This autoloading 22 LR system is the greatest breakthough in 35 years, according to Remington. And well that makes it a fact…

 

It’s a 10-round weapon with a simple laminate stock that is a great starter gun, although it does weigh 5.5lb.  The black synthetic stock is cheap, but then this is a rifle you don’t need to coddle.


And some discontinued 22 LR rifle classics

These great rifles have gone out of existence since this list started. The usual rule is that we delete them, but we love these weird little guns just too much for that. Plus, people still search for them on Google, so we both lose if I hit delete when you think about it…

Browning_Buckmark_22_semi_auto_rifle_full

21. Browning Buckmark Sporter Rifle 22 

  • Price: $576.99
  • Barrel Length: 18″
  • Total Length: 33.5″
  • Weight: 4.38lb
  • Capacity: 10+1

This is a much more refined version of the Henry Survival AR-7 Rifle and you can see the craftsmanship in every little detail.  Officially it has been discontinued, which is a problem. You can still pick up new guns from dealers at Gunbroker and other sources though.


It kind of looks like a World War II Ruger pistol that has been fitted with an aftermarket stock and a comedy long barrel. But owners love them and reckon this is one of the best rifles to take to the range. 


It doesn’t break down like the survival rifle, it isn’t as practical and it is more than twice the price. So you’ve really got to be into your 22 rifles to want this one. But, if you are, then this could be a great addition to your line-up of rimfire rifles. 


 


H&K G36 22 LR Rifle

22. Walther H&K G36 22 LR

  • Price: $547.99
  • Barrel Length: 18.1″
  • Total Length: 37.8″
  • Weight: 6.74lb
  • Capacity: 25+1


It’s magnificent isn’t it? This is the same basic form that the German military held at their side throughout the 90s and it’s now totally overengineered as a 22LR rimfire rifles. .


The full fat H&K G36 was chambered in 5.56 x 45. Now you can get the same rifle, kind of, in a more accessible semi auto 22 LR. You don’t get full machine gun fire either, life isn’t fair sometimes…


You can have an awesome looking rifle, though, which comes with a high-set Picatinny rail and a folding stock that means you can run your .22 LR rifle as a pistol. Pretty cool huh?


Walther is a 22LR specialist, in the handgun sector as well. You will find some stunning guns that are actually 22LR recreations of the classics, from the likes of the H&K36 to the Colt 1911. This was one of their finest hours i the semi auto 22LR world.



 

Walther Uzi Carbine 22LR

23. Uzi Carbine 22LR


  • Price: $534.99
  • Barrel Length: 17.9″
  • Total Length: 26.1″
  • Weight: 7.6lb
  • Capacity: 20+1


You are either grinning like a psycho at the Walther Uzi Carbine 22LR or shaking your head in disgust. There probably won’t be much of a middling reaction. It doesn’t really matter now anyway, because this novelty rmfire rifle has been discontinued. We couldn’t bear to delete it, for some reason.


That’s fine, too. We need guns that polarize opinion and make us question what we know. This one isn’t any great moment in time or anything like that, it’s really just a toy for plinking at the range or, better yet, on a private backyard range.


It’s an odd looking thing, totally overbarrelled even though the 17.9″ barrel is largely disguised as an oversized suppressor. It also comes with a folding stock, which is pretty cool, and it really does look like an Uzi.


You get a grip safety, which is a pretty nice touch, and it’s a Walther so look past the aesthetics and you do get a solid and reasonably accurate rifle.


What game can you hunt with a 22 LR rifle?

Ethical hunters won’t really go much bigger than rats, birds, small ducks and squirrels with a 22 LR, but this can become a way of life as you clamber through the humid forest canopy that is your local derelict field. This is hunting on a micro scale and it comes with its own weird satisfaction.

Groundhogs, Coyotes and small wild hogs are technically within the remit of the 22 LR, but we prefer an AR-15 at the very least for those encounters.

The 22 LR’s unique skillset, low cost of entry and accessibility means it’s a popular starter rifle. It also means there’s a booming industry supplying the 22 LR specialist hunters with 22 LR suppressors, game calls, knives, tools and other specialist equipment aimed at the backyard hunter.

22 scopes are largely more popular than red dots, as the magnification helps when you’re trying to eye-shot a squirrel, which sounds slightly psychopathic when we see it in print and yet here we are. Game calls, camo clothing, suppressors and more sound nicer than squirrel murder…

But where are the best places for 22 LR rifle parts, accessories and upgrades?
