May I please have your suggestions for a competition-level .22 rifle? I know everyone has their favorite Ruger from childhood, and I dearly love my single-shot bolt action, but I'm looking for quality rifle that can take home the trophys. Whaddya y'all think?

When I was shooting in rifle matches almost all of the guys were using Ruger 10/22 that are all trick out.

i will start my suggestions at a higher dollar level then work down:
1. Marlin M2000
2. Anschutz (most models)
3. Wichester Model 52
4. Marlin Models 44-46 (all of the 44's,45's and 46's are target grade rifles)
5. Norinco JW 15 (chinese military target rifle)
6. Ruger 10/22 (put together using aftermarket goodies)
7. Savage Model 14 (i believe)(it comes with a globe front and peep rear sights
i guess it depends if you want old or new or not.my kids shoot in competition so i try them on alot of different rifles.we have one of each of the above rifles (except anschutz) so i speak from experience.

52C

I used a 52C when I was competing. Not as pretty as the Anschutz, but it was a good rifle. I also used it in biathalon, but it was VERY heavy.

Were on earth did you come up with the Wichester Model 52 ?

I have a 52 or 56 that was built in 1923 and It's accurate as hell. I just found it weird you even thought of that gun.
