Was curious if the scope was still on-target. Seems to be pretty good! First 10 shots from about 40 yards...

The Glennfield model 70 is what you seek:https://www.gunsamerica.com/92710134...L-70-22-LR.htm

This one is sold, but others are out there, somewhere.

Hated my old model 60, sold it, bought a 10/22. Love it, fsr better gun with tons of aftermarket support if you want to tweek it to your liking.

I have several tube feed 22s. They require developing different habits to load and unload to ensure they are clear, but I have found developing good habits worth the effort.

Look at some pawn shops for a used 22. Don't be afraid to low ball them. When they sell it they won't lose any money.

Water-Man beat me to it. You should feel right at home with the 795.

I do not feel so bad unloading my tube fed 9422M since I can open the lever and pull the tube for loading and unloading. But a semi-auto, no thanks. The Ruger's rotary magazine is a godsend for that purpose.

My Marlin 22 semi-auto has a magazine.

Aside from single-shots, to my knowledge, all .22 rifles have a magazine of one kind or another (i.e., box or tube).

Then a magazine that sticks in from the bottom that some people might mistakenly refer to as a clip. So you do not have to aim the rifle at your head to load and unload it.

use hollow arrow shafts for loading. Or some other tube that will fit .22s.

Much easier to fill than a conventional magazine, then just slider the ammo out of the tube into the M 60s tube magazine. Reverse the process when you want to un load the gun. Easy peezy.
