Well, I'll be dipped! I dunno what you might dip me in, but whatever it is it will work. Now I have seen everything. Actually it is an awesome concept.
On the Stevens 87 you can push the bolt knob in and it locks it in place. After a round is fired pull the knob out and cycle the bolt and push the knob back in.

Favorite .22 rifle?

My favorite .22 rifle is the Remington Nylon 66. I own three of them and all are fun plinkers that function with any .22LR ammunition fed to them.

If it's semi-auto rifles I only have two and it depends on what I intend to do on a certain day which is my favorite.. Both started out as a 10/22 but all that remains Ruger is the action and bolt. One is a bench gun and is a heavy sucker. The other is an off hand version and much lighter.

I have a browning sa22 grade I that I enjoy shooting but now days, getting anything other than a Ruger 10/22 or s&w m&p-15 22 is not advisable imo.

As a base to build on:

Ruger 10/22

What I've spent my money on lately:

AR-pattern guns - CMMG, Tactical Solutions and (waiting for me at the LGS) Kriss
Currently gathering parts to build a .17 Mach 2 AR (Lothar W. for the barrel)
Make mine lean, mean, and 9x19!

If I could only have 1 it would be a 10/22, trigger job and a good scope. Prolly the Sporter with the walnut stock. I have other higher priced guns but the overall most useful is the 10/22,(I have 4 of them).

I like old school 22 rifles, I've had a Winchester Model 190 for a very long time & put a Nikon Prostaff scope on it a few years ago for precision work. Mrs bought herself a Henry youth model 22 lever that's a cool little gun & I recently added a nice 1968 vintage Remington Nylon 66 & a 1969 Marlin Golden 39A that shoot very well.

As long as others are posting pictures of bolt actions and lever guns instead of semi-auto's here's one of my favorites.

Rebarreled after 75K rounds with a pac-nor barrel.
McMillan anschutz style synthetic stock painted with Arizona sunset theme
