Browning grade 1 vs Taurus 63 vs 10/22

I'm going to be purchasing my first 22 rifle very soon and was wondering if money isn't a concern, which out of the three would you rather have and why? Ive shot all 3 and really liked them all but slightly favor the browning. Thanks.

1022 brotha. Later on when you wanna do a lil modding this gun is a monster. You name it and you can do it with this gun. Just a work horse of a firearm.

What's your intended purpose? Plinking, varminting, or competition?

I just wnet through the same decision process - I already had a couple old Remington and Marlin .22's, and wanted something much more accurate to use occasionally in small caliber competition and practice (much cheaper to shoot these days!).

I initially bought a 10/22 and enjoyed shooting it very much, but after some research into the cost to have it upgraded and accurized for comp use, it was clear I could buy a better baseline to build on. There are a number of excellent 'factory' guns in a mid-cost range (for under $500, look into the CZ 452 American or Ruger 77/22) all the way up to some very nice customs and factory guns (various models by Anschutz, Kimber, Cooper, Sako, etc) up to $2K.

I found a Clark custom 77/22, complete w/ Nikon optics, bipod, sling, etc recently for $800, and it appears to be an excellent choice for under $1K. I pick it up in a week. I'll soon see if it is as good as represented!

Also check out rimfirecentral.com for more focused .17 and .22 gun info and knowledge base.

Good luck in your search -

If by "Browning grade 1" you mean a BL-22 then I recommend it. The only two advantages I found in my 10/22 has is it's easier to mount a scope and the amount of lipstick available for it.

if you only want a plinking gun for shooting and not to mod it out, then a marlin 795 works real well.

Any tube-fed semi-auto. The old Marlin/Glenfield 60's are awesome and can be had for a song. 18 rounds and no dropped/lost magazines.
