    I have two Remington 597's. One is a factory custom target model with a bull barrel and thumbhole stock, the other is a plain jane with iron sights. The plain one sits by the back door for "critter" elimination! They are both very accurate and have been reliable. I have a few 30 round magazines for them.

    I would get the Marlin M60. I have had mine for nearly 25-years and it still works great. Best of all, the M60 is quite easily dismantled for easy cleanup. As far as your lost Tube Mag Rod, heck, kids lose things. I lost the keys to my car one time, I still kept the car. Also, the Marlin holds 17+1. I also have a702 Plinkster with 2/10-round mags. It is a great shooter but limited on mag size and it sucks to clean.

    I have an older Winchester Mod 94-22, a Marlin Mod 60 Glenfield and a Ruger 10-22. It would be between the Winchester and the Ruger as to which I prefer. The Winchester has had probably 100,000+ rounds through it and still functions like new and the Ruger is just plain fun to shoot.

    I think I'll finally let my daughter shoot it this Spring. She'll probably love it.
    No no - cool gun for sure but I was still laughing over the point that the gun sinks. Not something that makes the press release, eh?!?!

    I'll have to add another vote for the Marlin 60. It is by far my favorite rifle ever.

    I like my Rossi (now branded Taurus) M-62 take down Pump Carbine.

    It holds 12+1 rounds of .22 LR, but will also handle .22 longs & .22 shorts.

    Turn the take down knob on the left side of the receiver and it breaks down into two 16" pieces easily stowed in a back pac, truck or canoe.

    Although we like our Neos - it tends to sit in the safe while we shoot our revolvers. This conversion kit looks like something that might be fun for me to give DH - and to bring our Neos out to play!! I'll go to your review - thanks so much!

    a few minutes later.....: OK Chicarrones - now I really want one of these conversion kits after reading your review - sounds great for ME since the length of pull is short, but the only problem is - like everything else - there aren't any to be had right now! Whaaaaa!!!

    So - in the meantime I got myself a new to me Remington model 34 bolt action tube fed 22 rife (mfgd between 1932-1935) that DH just put a Marble Arms fiber optic front sight and a target rear sight on for me - and we are taking it to the range tonight (for Valentine's) to see if I can actually see the front sight now! If these new sights work, then I'm going to work on the stock a bit to pretty it up. Even when I can't see the front sight very well, this little ol' Remington is a great rifle - repeatably accurate (regardless of whether or not you can actually see the target you are shooting at!) Old guns for old people!!!! Doncha' think a Neos conversion carbine would be great or my collection next to this oldie??

    Survival arsenal? Sheesh....

    I have a 10/22 I like a lot, stainless, Hogue overmolded stock on it. It's light, totes well, accurate enough for 50 yard squirrel hunting.

    I have a Remington M597 .22 mag that I like a lot, 3x9x40 on this one. It reaches out there and shoots flat with a 100 yard sight in. Ammo is a little higher, but hey, I can find .22 mag most places, .22LR is non-existent right now. That's a bonus at this point in time, LOL. This rifle is twice as accurate as the 10/22, putting 10 rounds into 1.5" at 100 yards off sand bags. The 10/22 will do that at 50 yards. I have a 51 year old Remington bolt gun in .22 LR, a M512X, that shoots with the magnum, but of course not near as flat.

    Marlin 60s are okay if you don't mind the tube magazine. Marlin makes models with removable magazines. I really like the Ruger's rotary and if you're into high cap, until DC cracks down on 'em, Ruger offers a 25 rounder for the 10/22. Me, I prefer the standard rotary mags, fit flat, easy to carry with one hand at the balance point in the field. Pop out the mag when I get back to the house, jack the round out, and I'm unloaded easier than any tube mag.

    If you're wanting compact, how about the new 10/22 takedown?

    Then there's Savages, CZs, Henrys, lots of good choices in .22s that you cannot go wrong with IMHO. Just pick what appeals to you.
