22 with no sights. Barrel 20 or less. Drilled atnd tapped. Or with weaver full size groove. Tube feed. Bolt action

Default New or used?

Can you live with a 22" barrel? If so, take a look at the Marlin XT-22TR blued, or the XT-22TSR stainless. Tube feed, bolt action with integral 3/8" dovetail as well as drilled and tapped for mounting regular bases.
Regarding the 3/8" dovetail: we've been running Burris steel bases on the Marlin Model 60's for years with success. IME avoid the aluminum bases for 3/8" dovetail, they slip.
In the used market: Cooey and Winchester both made tube feed bolt action rifles. I don't know if they were factory drilled and tapped or with 3/8" dovetails?

I was looking at the Marlin XT-22TR. And its the closest I could find I see they go for about $300 can.

I find clips too hard to load ammo into. Semis wont cycle low power. The bases move on the 3/8 dovetail. The sights get in the way of a scope. A long barrel drags in the dirt.
Thanks

Find a browning a-bolt medallion 22. They are very accurate and come in a 22lr 0r a 22 magnum
Hard to find and bring a pretty penny

Tube fed 22s are a pain to load and unload. I have an old 22" tube fed Remington 341P that sits unused in preference to my 10-22s.

There are few systems out there to help out with loading clips. I was going to recommend a CZ 455 Varmint, trouble is they have magazines and no mag loaders that I know of.
Cooey 60 or 600 would fit the bill.
