Choosing Your First .22-Caliber Rifle: Part 2 of 3

Bolt, Lever, or Semi-Automatic? That is the question! This is the second article in a three part series designed to help new shooters choose a .22-caliber rifle. This article focuses on the different kinds of action that are commonly used in a .22 caliber rifle.

To operate a bolt action rifle, you lift up on a handle and use it to open the breach by pulling it toward you. If there is a cartridge in the breach, the bolt will extract it from the firing chamber and eject it. If you have a single shot bolt action rifle, you will place a cartridge into the open breach of the weapon by hand, push the bolt in to close the breach, and push the bolt handle down to lock the round in place. If the bolt action rifle is fed ammunition from a magazine, when you close the bolt, the bolt will catch a cartridge presented from the magazine and push it into the chamber.

The bolt-action rifle has a reputation for being accurate, strong, and reliable. Thus, many hunters rely on bolt-action rifles for hunting and it makes sense for them to practice with a similar small bore weapon. However, it takes slightly longer to chamber a round and fire a bolt-action rifle than other actions. If you are a beginning shooters, the methodical and deliberate pace of activity with a bolt-action can be an advantage. To shoot accurately, you will need to focus your sight picture, breathing control, trigger control, and follow through. While, a bolt-action rifle doesn't offer the instant gratification and cheap thrill of rapid fire shooting, it is a wonderful learning tool for prospective marksmen. If you are teaching a child or young teen to shoot, a single-shot bolt-action rifle might also be very worthy of consideration. A young shooter can be instructed under very close supervision with an adult easily monitoring ammunition, shooter behavior, and whether the firearm is loaded at any given time. My trusty old Marlin 25N is a classic example of an affordable entry-level bolt-action .22 rifle.

The lever-action rifle is the most romantic of rifle actions. More than any other rifle, the lever-action rifle evokes the history of the American west. Generations of American deer hunters have also used lever-action rifles for hunting at short to medium ranges. A lever action rifle uses a lever underneath the rifle in the trigger area to open the breach, extract any spent shell, and chamber a cartridge from the magazine. When the lever is lowered, the rifle action is opened and any chambered round is ejected. When the lever is raised, a new round is chambered.

Lever-action rifles are fun to shoot and a little faster than bolt-action rifles. Some are revered as true classics. The Marlin Model 39A is arguably the .22 rifle nearly every shooter has wanted at one time or another. However, prospective purchasers should note that it takes a little room beneath the rifle to operate the lever. If a shooter will be shooting from a prone position or when seated behind a shooting bench at a range, he or she may have to maneuver the rifle a bit to operate the lever. Of course, if the shooter is riding a horse through a desert canyon or standing at the edge of a dusty ghost town, the lever-action rifle is perfect. If you don't get a lever-action .22, you will probably regret your decision someday.

Pow! Pow! Pow! Pow! Pow! Pow! Pow! Pow! Do you have some property that offers a place to shoot? Do you have a pile of soda cans? Has some fruit stayed in your refrigerator a little too long? If you have a place to go out and shoot "reactive" targets that fall down, spin, or tumble when you shoot them, you will probably want a semi-automatic .22 rifle. A semi-automatic rifle fires, ejects the spent shell, and chambers a new cartridge from the magazine each time the trigger is pulled. This offers several advantages. First, you do not have to manually do anything between shots. You don't have to operate a bolt or a lever and you don't have to reposition your body between shots. Second, you can fire rapid follow up shots to your initial shot. For small game and varmint hunters, this can be important capability if a first shot does not quickly and humanely dispatch an animal. For the rest of us, a semi-auto can just keep a soda can dancing along in the dirt. The Ruger 10/22 is one of the most popular semi-automatic .22 rifles and has a myriad of after-market accessories to customize it for any shooter.

There are a few less common kinds of .22 caliber rifle. Some rifles have break-open actions. These break open on a hinge after a lever is pressed. Breaking open the action extracts or ejects any shell in the chamber and then the shooter places a single shot in the chamber and closes the firearm. For those desiring something a little quicker, there are a few pump or slide-action .22 caliber rifles on the market. To chamber a round with a pump or slide-action .22, the shooter slides a handle slung under the forward part of the barrel.

It can be challenge to select a rifle with the best action for your favorite shooting pastimes. However, if you choose the wrong .22, don't worry. The humble .22 rifle is the potato chip of gun world: you can't stop with just one purchase. The next and final article in this series will discuss makes, materials, finishes, and desirable accessories to consider when you purchase your .22 rifle.
