    fairly new or "vintage"?

    I'm a Winchester guy when it comes to the levers. Probably because that's what I grew up shooting. I never liked the short action of the Browning levers I shot.

    Never shot the Ithaca.

    I can tell you, all of the 9422's that I own are tack drivers. Flattest shooting 22's I've ever seen, with any round, including the magnums. Maybe I just got lucky, but then again all of mine are "vintage" and not later model rifles.

    Ruger 10-22 standard or target. Both are very accurate with the right ammo.

    Have all those except for the Ithaca.

    Browning BLR is my preference, short 33 degree throw with traveling trigger. Harbinger of death for rabbits, squirrels, snakes, bullfrogs, pond turtles, racoons, possums, ........ 40 year relationship with her, we're close.

    No expert and have only shot the first 2. Both Brownings always seem a bit small but they are sure fun to shoot. I love the short throw on the BLR

    Well, I just happen to have all of them. I just came into a large collection, that I am selling for a very good friend of mine. He's a 91 year old Vet. I am going to buy one of these for myself. A Browning's are made in Japan, all Winchesters are post 64. All around 70's early 80's. The Ithaca seems to be a rare bird.

    Oh man, that makes it a tough decision then. I would probably ask the buddy which one he likes the best and go with that one!
