Starter bolt rifle

    I have one of those Mossberg New Haven .22's. They do last for ever.

    I think the "don't clean a .22" may come from people finding they shoot better after the barrel has been 'leaded in'. You'll get the same or better result by polishing the rifling with bore paste or similar metal polish and have a clean rifle.

    I agree with MSD, open sights on a .22 are a lot of fun. If you want something a little more accurate, try peep sights. If you really want to have fun, try an electronic dot sight or holographic sight. Fast sight picture and variable sight picture make these things great for small caliber and close quarters.

    Anyone who says not to clean a .22 has never shot Aguila SuperExtra or Remington Thunderbolt. On a related note, I made that mistake with my WASR 2, thinking "It's an AK clone, it can go one range trip without cleaning," and ended up putting a can of PB Blaster and half a bottle of Marvel Mystery Oil into it after the gas piston froze up. Took me three weeks of daily oiling and hammering before it broke loose.

    Their bolt action .22 isn't a "10/22". They call it the "Ruger American". FYI, it's a sh*tload more expensive than a vanilla Ruger 10/22. Unless you have some sort of weird phobia about semi-autos, the 10/22 is the way to go, from price, accuracy, and reliability standpoints. I bought my 10/22 when I was 18 yrs. old. I'm 65 now and that rifle is still going strong!

    I was taking a shot (ha...ha...ha) at the people who suggested the semi-automatic 10/22 when the OP clearly mentioned a bolt-action. Hence the three emogees; a wasted effort on an ancient thread.

    My 10/22 is a fairly recent purchase, so far so good. I have two new BX25 mags that needed to be used a couple of times before functioning properly, but that's not the rifles fault.
