    I have to admit that my initial thoughts on seeing a butt feed 22 was negative, that they couldn't be very reliable somehow. I don't know why I thought that way...just my first emotional response. Here I am, at 60 yrs of age, and just in the past few years being able to get back into enjoying a little bit of paper shooting ( with a few critter pests along the way), and being able to buy a gun once in a while. I spent most of my adult life raising two children as a single parent in a big city, so I am sorta starting over with the enjoyment of firearms...which explains kinda why seeing a butt fed 22 appeared different to me.

    I had to sell my one & only Marlin 336 30-30 for bills, but I hope to rectify that soon.

    Thanks again for all of the info & opinions....I may have to get a butt feed to add to my little, but hopefully growing, collection.

    I love my Browning .22 Semi Autos. I have one scoped and one not. I personally consider them the perfect squirrel rifles.

    They're very dependable, and easy to maintain.

    I just bought a Browning SA-22 (semi-automatic).

    They are very nice rifles, but a bit pricey.

    I have been looking for a deal on one for about 2 years.

    Not going to have a round stuck in the mag

    I have had my Marlin Model 88 for over 40 years and my Grandfather had it for over 20 years before he gave it to me. It has shot thousands and thousands of rounds through it and never had a round stuck in the magazine And even if it did it would not be a problem or an "accident waitin to happen." its not going to fire in the magazine.

    I've got a Belgian Browning takedown that's reliable with the right ammo. The attraction there is that it strips completely in about 10 seconds for cleaning, no tools. Only Marlin I know of is the 88/880, fairly rare. The Browning at least has a divot in the stock for loading, some of the others have to have the butt tube completely removed. I've also got a Taurus copy of a Win 63 that works well enough, it's NOT so easy to strip for cleaning.

    If anything, the buttstock magazine should be more reliable than the under-the-barrel sort, it's protected from dings and the cartridges feed in a straight line to the chamber. The Browning actually feeds from the top of the receiver.

    Last Nylon 66 I saw was on a table along with a Browning, both priced at $450. There was nothing special about the Nylon 66 except it wasn't a barn gun. It was still on the table last show I was at, Browning had gone home with someone else.

    You won't be chopping stocks on any of them to make kids' guns.

    Nice resurrection of an older thread.
    Remington 241 is another ( similar to Browning, but longer barrel )

    My Daddy gave me a Nylon 66 when I was a kid (I'm 42 years old now)! Great little semi-auto 22! I still have her Today!
