Pick a Ruger 10/22 you like.

Are you scoping it or sticking with iron sights?
If iron sights, take a look at Tech-Sights
or
NoDak Spud NDS-26 Rear Sight
Use the NDS-23 front sight base for .920" bull barrels.
Use the NDS-40 front sight base for standard factory contour barrels.


Standard upgrades for any and all 10/22's I've bought so far for self and kids:

The NoDak Spuds might work for you then. The added bonus is that you can easily add a red dot sight later and keep the irons. I've got TechSights on all my 10/22s but as soon as the holidays are past I will be ordering a set of the NoDak Spuds for my rifle.

Didn't touch on the stocks available as there are sooo many to choose from and everyone has their preference. My 10/22s still have their stock wooden stocks as I haven't found an aftermarket stock I really really like. Found a few that I'd like to try but haven't been able to yet.

Oh, and get to an Appleseed. *shameless plug*

I have a GSG-5(MP5 clone) and I like it. About 250 rounds through it so far with zero failures. I'd either get that or a M&P 15-22, they both look "cooler" than a Ruger 10/22 8-)

The Ruger has survived the market for 50 years for a reason.
They may not be the MOST accurate but they are as reliable as a .22 can be.
Easily modified and it fits well within your budget even if you include added optics.
It can be tweeked to suit you or to enhance performance.

It can look just as cool as an other rifle if thats your choice...

10/22 or Marlin Model 60. Pawn shops and gun stores that carry decent used inventories will usually have used Model 60s in the $75 range.
