These are probably one of the best and most accurate .22 rifles that were ever made. Too bad they were discontinued and now usually command high prices. I was roaming the used gun racks in a gun shop today and found one in like new condition. The hang tag said $150.00, but I got it for less than that. On the way home I stopped at another gun shop and chatted with the owner. When I told him about the Model 581 his comment was that he sells them for $300.00. He wanted to know if my .22 rifle was for sale. I told him it was not for sale. Anyone else fond of this fine little rifle? All the best...
