i took this rifle out to the great outdoors/middle of no where, with a little practice, and no wind, i was toppling pop cans at astounding ranges. all in all, a fantastic rifle to learn to shoot with, or just to plink with. i do not regret getting this little gem, for a moment. with today's economy, and the ridiculous price of ammo for just about every type of gun, or rifle you'll ever own, this little .22 is worth the little price you'll pay for it, and the ammo you'll wind up feeding it. this baby is a giggle-maker.

Another reviewer (Jason) had issues with failure to eject. I had the same problems with certain ammo. Other ammo would run with no problems. This problem is not unique to this semi-auto 22. I have had similar issues with Ruger as well as Browning. Find the ammo that works and problem solved. I bought this for my Grandfather to shoot groundhogs with. The lightweight is ideal for him as he can no longer bear to shoulder any gun weighing over 5 lbs. Overall it is a good gun.

    at first i was supprised how accurate this was. and with the improved riffling in the barrel it is accurate at extreme ranges. i was abble to hit a soda pop can at 220 yards with open sights.

    Comments about Mossberg® Model 702 Plinkster Rimfire Rifle:

    This is a good little shooter for the price. I've ran all kinds of different ammo through it and it eats them all just fine. No issues with feeding or ejection. It's pretty accurate too. Just bear in mind that if you ever mess up your recoil spring by bending it that you can use the same recoil spring from a Marlin 60 or 795 in your Plinkster. They are pretty much the same exact spring. Some people say they work even better than the original Plinkster spring.

    Comments about Mossberg® Model 702 Plinkster Rimfire Rifle:

    Great little rifle for the price. I have taken mine to the range twice and have put well over 250 rounds through it with absolutely no issues. I was shooting the cheap Remington Thunderbolts too, and it ate them up no problem. Accuracy was good, and it functioned like it should. I kind of bent up the recoil spring when I first reassembled it after cleaning, but I bent it back into position and it still works just fine. I picked up a new recoil spring as a spare just in case. All in all a great little gun!

        Great gun. FIRST time I Shot it today and it worked almost perfectly. Couple hundred rounds and It only had one hic-up... I think that is pretty perfect.

        It is very accurate. I could bunch with stock iron at 50 ft in range. 3 inches.. My 702 was a little off to the right... No big deal. Mag is 10 rds.. loads easily so I had fun. Overall 5 stars if I could get more mags for a decent price. 4 without...

        Comments about Mossberg® Model 702 Plinkster Rimfire Rifle:

        I bought mine from your local discounter in 2007, and it still groups wonderfully if I do my part right. It is rather reliable, just a few misfires here and there, but then again I usually use the cheapy Remington Golden Bullet ammo. The best group I produced from 5 rounds can be put inside a quarter at 50 yards from an indoor range. Now the cons, this thing gives me more fits than any other gun I have when cleaning and disassembling. The instructions on the manual are not too good. I have come up with my own methods of reassembly. One time, I bent the bolt spring badly. I have not replaced anything, but it functions ok. I have attached a short video featuring my mossberg plinkster. Despite the cons, I highly recommend this rifle. It features a detachable 10 round magazine, a fully free floated barrel, and it is very light. I put a BSA .22 4 * 32 scope. It works well.

            Muzzle velocity varies with the ammo. The fastest ammo is Aguila Hyper Velocity 30gr at 1750fps. Ammo ranges on down to just over 700fps.
