I am looking for a magazine fed, bolt action .22 rifle for general target shooting and training. I will not be competing with it but good standard iron sights as well as a scope mount would be nice. What say you?

You might want to concider the Russian Sobol, Biathlon or Biathlon Basic for an inexpensive yet accurate option:

If I were to get a bolt .22 I'd look at the CZ USA rimfire line first.

I saw a Sobol .22 at SHOT, and it is a beautifully made rifle and as solid as a larger calibre centerfire target rifle. Expect to pay over $700 for one though.

I have a Tula Toz-78 which is a very accurate and inexpensive bolt rifle. I comes standard with 2 x 10 rds and 2 x 5rds magazines. I paid $100 plus fees for mine. It is imported by Tenessee Guns : http://www.tnguns.com/shop/index.php?main_page=page_2

This is may be what you are looking for http://www.savagearms.com/markiifvt.htm

You can take off the rear peep sight and put on a scope too.

If you want cheap and accurate, keep looking at the used gun racks until you find an old bolt action Mossberg. I've got two that shoot as well as my Anshutz does. The triggers aren't as good but, they are better than all the new inexpensive 22s I've looked at. Also, learn to shoot with iron sights first.

What kind of price range are you looking at? If you want a decent gun I personally would stay away from Savage and most of the other stuff on the market today that sells for under $200. The CZ stuff is very nice, the Kimber stuff is great too. If you want to spend $150 on a real solid used rifle find an old Remington in decent shape like a 511 or 521 or even a 513(more money).They made a ton of these and they are not too hard to find in decent shape, they shoot great parts are cheap and they are made right. All the stuff you find today in this price range new just feels like crap to me, lots of plastic, garbage wood, etc...A local shop here in Fresno has several of these for sale right now.I picked up a like brand new 521T for $450, alot of money for an old Remington .22 but its fun buying a 40-50 year old gun in brand new condition.

I have a TOZ-78 as well. The stock leaves a bit to be desired, but the trigger is excelent and the damn thing is very accurate. It's probably the best ultra-cheap .22 boltaction on the market.
