Turners has a sale on them. I'v already got a 10/22 and was interested in getting the 702. Anybody have one? How do you like it?

Man...even with all the BS that I read about them here....I'd welcome a Turners to the area with open arms. They need to branch out up north more.

I've heard really good things about them and was actually considering one for my first gun. Seems like an even better deal at $100. It isn't made by Mossberg though IIRC.

I've heard very different reviews about the 702 Plinkster. Bear in mind, it is a Brazilian manufactured rifle that was previously imported as the Braztech model 7022, and branded by Mossberg for the US market.

Never having owned one, I have heard they are fussy with the ammo they like. They will shoot Remington and CCI OK, but will jam with Federal or Winchester. The trigger is supposedly awful, and accuracy does not tend to be good. To disassemble the rifle for cleaning, is also very difficult, as you have to drive out pins with a punch and hammer.

I did quite a bit of research on cheap .22 plinkers last year and decided on a Marlin 795 (which is incidently very similar in appearance to the Plinkster) for $108 on sale at Turners, and would say that after 2000+ rounds, the Marlin is very reliable and accurate, and is a bargain at that price range.

I can guarantee you, it will not be long before someone posts: "Get a Ruger 10/22......."
