Not customized, but out of the box; What do you consider the most accurate .22lr target rifle one can buy for say - <$800?

If the title has "custom" in it but it's still a factory produced rifle, e.g. Kimber Custom, that's ok. I just want to search for a top .22lr target rifle without having a smith work on it for a month.

Thanks all!

Perhaps a CZ 454/453/455. I doubt you can find a anschutz or Sako for $800. The Kimbers from the CMP have a good rep as well for ~$600

I've a Savage MKII in .17M2 (with custom stock and trigger from Sharp Shooter Supply), and it has no problem keeping things inside 4" at 200+yds. 50-100yds is boringly one hole stuff. No squirrel has failed to drop at any reasonable range I hit it at.

Accurate or precise? Accuracy only has to do with site adjustment so, any gun can have it's sighting mechanism adjusted to be super duper "accurate".

As a mechanical engineer, I earn my living understanding these terms. I'm talking precision. Accuracy is the general term most understand.

Sounds about right. I found one on GB for $100, near new.

For $800 or less, I'd look for an old Winchester 52, Remington 513 or a Mossberg 40 series. Any of these will shoot as well as a brand new gun but, they have more class.

I'm inclined to say the Browning made "newer" Winchester 52. I think you could get one for under $800.00, there's a scoped one at Gun Fishing & Stuff for $1K and it has a Leupold or Burris scope mounted, no scope (and more reasonable pricing) would get one for under $800.00.

Anschutz, you can find one used for <$800.
There are places selling new ones for around $1000.

Perhaps even an old remington 40X -- And I have seen old Anschutz position rifles with sights and inserts for $650..

Kimber 82 (the older) or Hunter Silhouette for about 800.00

Then you get into the Kimber Super America, Custom Match, SVT and then Anschutz 54, 64 to the <1000.00 and up

Was that the one at FCA about a year ago? I drooled over it but, being LHed, I passed.

If you can find one an old Brno#3 or #4.

What accuracy would satisfy your needs such as range and group size? Most production 22lr bolt action rifles (CZ, Savage, Marlin) will shoot MOA, some may need bedding or barrel floating or trigger work but MOA is achievable on most out to 75-100yds.
