Looks like Ruger is taking their PRS success with the RPR and parlaying it into the rimfire trainer market. MSRP is $529, which means a $425-$450 street price. If it shoots worth a damn, they're going to sell a pile of them.

>If PRS rimfire isn't mainstream yet, it will be after this

I'd certainly hope so... But I really wish it'd be so focused on the budget market.

I really have no issue whatsoever to spend a large amount of coin on a high quality .22LR. Especially if it's accurate, reliable and has a left hand bolt.

Recently another interesting company launched a tactical trainer line btw: vudoogunworks.com
As far as I can tell, they should fit in any Rem700 chassis, which makes it quite interesting.
Note that these vudoo ones are easily over $2000.

Yeah, Vudoos are Remington 40Xs with magazines. They're probably as accurate as .22LRs get.

I'm not sure if they're sold over in Euroland, but here in the US Anschutz sells rimfire trainer models in Manners T6 stocks:

One of those is a good option if you hate money and want an accurate out of the box .22LR. You could also get some of the 54 action guns, but they're mostly set up for Olympic and NRA small bore shooting. I think Anschutz sells lefty models too in the 54 and 64 series.

CZ also sells 455s in Manners stocks as well (I think they're T4s). 455s are right hand only, though:

The new Steyr Zephyr II might be an option too. They're priced around low end Anschutzs in the US market:

I'm aware, but any information request to Anschutz Germany goes unanswered, especially if you're asking about lefties.

The vast majority of those are single shot though. Very accurate indeed, but I wanted a repeater.
For right handed people, the MPR seems like a good choice, but they don't make it lefty anymore.

>CZ also sells 455s in Manners stocks

Not a particular fan of CZ .22LRs.

>The new Steyr Zephyr II might be an option too.

Never seen those.

There's also the Sako Finnfire (fixed barrel) & Quad (quick change barrel), but I'm not sure if they're accurate enough and they very recently stopped producing them left handed.

That said, a Vudoo action barreled action with a JAE-700 stock would be faptastic. But would also make for a very pricey .22LR.

That's pretty exciting. It undercuts CZs in price, and will probably meet or exceed their quality and accuracy.
