You may want to try and do a bit of research yourself on the main companies that sell competitive rifles.
I know a lot of people use Anschutz .22 on the world cup circuit(Look on the Anschutz website I believe there is a section).
I know Warren Potent who is a world record holder in prone uses a Blieker/Gruing&E combination...
Another combination that is becoming very popular is the Blieker/Gemini combination.
Those two are very expensive options, especially if you are new.

I personally wouldn't go with what the top medal/record holders are using at this point. They did not start out with those guns, plus they are usually sponsored by that company. I would go with whatever fits your budget and of course what fits you best. Finding a good second hand one is usually the best options for beginners.

I personally have an anchutz with a 2007 action with a 2313L stock, and I love it. Mine is left handed and a sport rifle (not a sporting... sport is just the girl version of a .22 rifle). You will be wanting to look for a free rifle model.

I hope this helps.


: Thanks, I'll give them a try as well.
