I'm looking to buy a 22 Hornet rifle. I have looked at both a CZ and a Zastava mini mauser. A LGS has a 77/22 with the laminated stock with the gun finished in a very ugly gray! I am leaning towards the imported ones since they have nicer stocks. I know ruger makes them with walnut and blue but they are few and far between in my part of Texas. I would also consider an H & R handi rifle.
