What can you folks recommend for a cheap .22 single shot- bolt action or otherwise? I might attach a spare red dot, but that's as far as I would need to go with optics. Otherwise, iron sights-only is no problem.

Adult size or kid size? There is always the Savage Cub, the Cricket, the NEF/H&R single shots, etc

Or take $100 and haunt your local pawn places....

Adult size for now. Cricket fits the bill, but I'll keep an eye peeled for something local. Thanks!

Never understood using a Bolt action for a single shot. I'd be looking for a Stevens Favorite or the likes of it. A Winchester Low-wall in 22RF would be the cat's ass, but you went and mentioned cheap. :sad:

I do like a SS rifle.

If Cimarron's .22LR Low Wall wasn't over a grand, I'd be all over it.

The Remington 510 I have is a tack driver. If you keep an eye out, they can usually be found under $200.

A Remington 511 is the essentially the same rifle but with a small magazine rather than single shot. I also have one of these out in the barn for varmints that I picked up at a yard sale for $100.

These are a great series of rifles. The 512 is the same basic gun with a tube fed magazine. I have a few of each of the 510, 511, & 512 in my .22 rifle "collection" (addiction). The larger 513 and 521T are the same action just different barrels, stocks, and sights. Then there are the "P" guns, 511P etc. Same rifle with a factory Peep rear sight. My daughter is doing good work with her 521T "Junior Special", a 521T with factory short buttstock. She is growing fast so I am building her up a faux 521T/513. I have a 511P missing the rear peep, a Redfield rear sight, and a 513T stock. The finished rifle will in effect be a light barrel 513T, or just a 521T in a 513 stock. Should be a nice gun for around $200 investment. None of that answers the OP's question, but thanks for reading this far.

I bought a CZ ZKM 468 from Allan Schisel (Allan's Armory) last year. It's about 37" long and very light weight. I bought it to teach the grandkids, after starting them with air rifles. Made in 1950, it shoots great too. I don't think he has them in stock at the moment but one could check in with him for more info.

NIB $159.00 http://www.gunbroker.com/item/687025575 but you would have to put a 1" recoil pad on it.

SAFN: ¡Muchas gracias! That 514 is exactly what I had in mind. I like the vintage appeal, too.

That looks a lot like a Winchester Model 1906

I think a Winchester 1906 is a pump rifle isn't it? :? The action on the CZ is somewhat similar to my Winchester Model 67 though.

Tell that to J.G. ANSCHÜTZ GmbH & Co. KG; they might need to be enlightened.

Yes, you are correct the model 1906 is a pump. I ment the winchester model 1904 which is what the model 67 is based off of.

I didn't know that. Thanks for the information grumpy. Here's my 67, 1936 I believe.

Not a single shot, but my daily deals mail from PSA had a Savage Mk II G for $149 free shipping last night...

The problem I see is the cheap single shot (rifles) are not cheap anymore. If you keep an open mind, you might find a good repeater that is cheaper than a single shot!

TBH I only go to gun shops for socialization, ammo, and looking at the used rack. But take $125 cash around to a bunch of what I call "good" gun shops (lots of used guns) and pawn shops and you can find a $100 single shot 22. Same with even the smallest gun shows. I used to get whatever $100 would get me, clean it up, shoot and enjoy it, and sell it on 6 months down the road for about $100, and buy another. I've enjoyed a lot of classic rifles this way...

I've always wanted to run across a great deal on a Stevens Favorite. That would be a great single. I've never forgiven myself for putting down that Browning 1885 low wall in .223 that I found for $600. Went back the next day, and it was long gone.
