I would recommend the Ruger 10/22. It is one of the most, if not the most customizable .22 rifle there is.

Marlin 795 is lighter than a Ruger 10/22 & about $50-70 cheaper. can't go wrong with either as a first .22 semiauto rifle. If looking for a bolt action, consider a CZ 452.

Ruger 10/22 does have many after market accesories. Some black friday deals are around $199.

Semi auto?I have owned 10-22s for 39 years and still have my original.
Bolt action?These days,95% of the time pull my 77-22s out to use.
The CZs,Brownings make nice bolts as well.The Savages are a little less expensive,but are fine guns.
Lever action?Henry

Ruger 10/22 is the gold standard for semi auto .22lrs.

If you want a bolt, I just bought a Savage Mark II FV SR after hearing great things.

Everyone likes to suggest the 10/22 but in all honesty your first rifle should be something bolt or lever action, not semi auto. I would say go with one of those new savage bolt action rifles or a henry lever action.

You can't go wrong with any of these:

Ruger 10/22
Marlin 795
Marlin 60 (tube fed, no magazine)

Marlin 795 or 60, if you want a repeater.
Marlin XT-22 if you want a bolt action.

My first vote would go to the Ruger 10/22, first alternate would be the S&W M&P15-22.

http://www.henryrepeating.com/rifle-acubolt.cfm For your first as a rookie rifle shooter, just start out slow and then work your way up to semi-auto.

dawn77... the cz455 is the new version of the cz452, it has switch barrel capability and the reviews from them that has'em over on rimfirecentral.com have been very good. I have two cz452's , excellent bang for the buck, you would have to spend a lot more to get a better rifle (Cooper, Annie etc.).

My picks...
Bolt rifle - CZ
Lever rifle - Browning BL-22
Semi auto - Marlin 66

The Ruger 10/22 is a great hunter/plinker right out of the box but not overly accurate unless you do some work. If you want to get into modding and customizing it's the way to go. If not I suggest a bolt action CZ455 American with a good scope. The American is designed for use with a scope and the Lux is designed for open sights. Right out of the box the CZ is very accurate and fun.

Dick's sporting goods has the 10/22 advertised for 179.99 this weekend. Cheapest I've seen in a long time. Great little semi auto...

I own a Savage MK II and it's a great rifle also.

^This!

Better yet get a 795 and a XT-22 as the 10 round magazines interchange between the two!

More accurate then a 10/22 out of the box and can be made to look pretty bad ***! (Don't let the 10/22 guys tell you there are no aftermarket parts for Marlin)

I have the Ruger 10/22 and the Savage Mark II, both are great guns but love the Savage. The Savage has always been a very accurate gun for me. I would guess that the CZ's are great guns as my experience with their pistols has been nothing but great. Just my opinion.

Ruger 10-22 takedown at Turners for $299., for the win. Most of the mods you do will only enhance your shooting pleasure. If you want a single shot for your kids to learn on you can get a one round mag for it.

Semi Auto or Bolt Action? 10/22 for 179$ If so, that`s an excellent price! Limited experience with Bolt .22`s, but I want one. I love my 10/22, waiting on a Volquartsen Hammer/Sear Kit today!

I'll go out on a limb and say M&P 15-22 instead of the default 10/22.

Why? chances are you'll want an AR later on. This way you have one in 22 with all the same ergonomics and controls to prime you for the real deal.

I have a Ruger 10/22 with upgrades.
also a Henry lever.
and a Rossi 62 pump Winchester clone.

When trying to decide on which one to take out, it's difficult. I like them all!

If you had the cash, id say Winchester 9422 leveraction or Henry. For low price id give Marlin Model 60 highest marks. It has few mods available but rock solid and fun gun. The bolt action Marlin is excellent for beginners. If you can find an old Winchester bolt action those are excellent too and should be cheap. The Ruger 10/22 is good too though i hated mine and sold it around 1980 and never looked back. For looks, dont people like the GSG 5?

Default 1st 22 must be a 10/22 come on!

You will keep the 10/22 forever or pass it on to a relative. I also have a Walther G22 which no one has suggested which is frankly a better gun IMHO. Bulpup design, rails, accurate as he!!. But I think for an adult who already has other firearms, the Ruger 10/22 semi auto would be the best first gun. A bolt action for a junior shooter or an adults first gun seems more appropriate and my personal taste.

I am selling a Marlin 39A lever action...it's old and expensive but they have some of the newer ones for less money. I have had mine over 50 years and it has never jammed or misfired and you can light a match with it at 30 years
