    They're good. I'm sure there's better, but I'm using mine after 20 odd years. Just picked up a 2nd mag for it.

    Are you set on a .22 magnum?
    As plenty of better rifles around, in either .22LR, 17HMR or even getting a centrefire in .223.

    I have some very fond memories of time with an older stirling 22 mag. Think they may have judt been a 15 then not a 1500 but i was more concerned with shooting with it than reading its numbers so could be wrong. It shot very well and i enjoued carrying it around.

    I've only had the M20 semi in .22LR
    As others have mentioned, they are pretty basic.

    Mine was lucky to shoot within 4" circle at 50, sprayed like a shot gun really.

    Should have added i later had a stainless 1500 that put shots through same hole. Put suppressor, bipod etc on it then sold it. The newer ones are pretty basic and wood is of similar ilk to the norincos once you undress them. Wouldnt pay too much more for that one listed than what its currently at
