I must admitt I had never considered the 22 cal. Partially because of my lack of knowledge, partially because it's immagine of a beginner bullet, and mostly because here is not alaud for any kind of hunting, mouses and any varmint too.. But now I would like to give it a try for plinking and range shoting.having all my guns in bolt action except a shotgun I was thinking about a lever action.would you alk gave me an advise on reliable and nice cillectable models

An older Marlin model 39. Until Remington took over Marlin just a few years ago they were excellent rifles. Many of them had accuracy levels treading right on the heels of a high quality target grade bolt action.

I was lucky, I learned to shoot 22, with Remington Model 41 target master, Uncle used to compete with. He gave it to us kids.
Don't have picture of it, but here's link http://www.remington.com/~/media/Images/Firearms/Archived/Rimfire/Bolt-Action/m371.ashx?w=570&bc=ffffff

We used to use marbles and 22 brass, as targets. Your turn lasted until you missed. Many a rabbit and squirrel was shot in eye, any other shot was considered a miss and you had to wait your turn again.

I've had lots of 22's in all my years of shooting. I would have to say that right now my all-time favorite is my Henry lever. Can shoot shorts, longs or long rifles.

The 22 I grew up with was a Sears Model 5, lever action.  Great rifle.  The Winchester Model 150 and the Sears Model 5 are the same rifle.  The Winchester Model 250 is the same except a different butt stock, IIRC.

Great guns and lots of fun and practice. There's a few that come up on Armslist and Gun Broker.

Closely examined a Henry .22 rifle yesterday. The interior working parts appeared to be made of pot metal and the exterior blued finish was painted on. The center-fire model had a blued barrel but the interior working parts appeared to be pot metal. Both had the gold colored receivers. I was real big on Henry's until I had a chance to closely examine one.

I had a Marlin Mountie back in the 70's, wish I would have kept it. It was very well made and a good shooter. I don't know current value but would bet that it is a bargain compared to what is available today.
