Check these out, its a "target rifle" so they should be pretty accuarte, and they are single shots.....

Accuracy is fairly relative. There is squirrel head shot at 25 yds, and Squirrel head shot at 100 yds. Then there are the Olympic style 22 rifles that can place 10 shots in a 1/4 inch circle.

I have a Greener small Martini offhand 22 rifle that is darn good for being 100 years old. Some used guns are quite good and others have had the rifling scraped out by abrasives and mishandling.

I have seen quite a few older used 22's for sale recently at shops. The problem is that many older Remingtons, Mossbergs, Stevens, etc had really poor quality rear sights. A peep sight can make a big difference.

One of the most accurate rifles I ever shot was a DCM Mossburg, heavy barrel 22 LR. It was donated to Kutztown State, for the rifle team, back about 1968. When the University disbanded the team, the rifles were sold off to who knows where.

Just a tip, such target rifles are usually specially chambered for standard velocity ammo. The higher velocity stuff just sprays all over from some such guns.
