Need new .22LR, opinions?

I currently have an old Marlin 99 autoloader in .22LR that I use for hunting rabbits, squirrels, and pretty much any varmint that finds it's way into range. It is fun gun because it's cheap and easy to shoot, but is not in real great shape, and isn't very accurate either. Lately, it has been acting up. The rounds in the tube mag won't load up into the chamber anymore effectively turnign my semi-auto into a single shot and parts for it are almost impossible to come by. I have already discovered when I repaired the follower in the mag that what few parts there are still available cost more than the gun is worth, so I think it is time to move on.

There is local gun store that stocks hundreds of new and used guns and will take anything on trade, so I am looking for some input on what .22s you guys have/like. I don't want anything that will break the bank, but I don't want a piece of crap either. I guess I am leaning towards a semi-auto or a lever, but would consider a bolt too.

I do like the 10/22, especially because there are so many parts and upgrades available for them!

Ruger 10/22. I have the stainless and black plastic stock too. If you look hard enough, you can find one for about $180 (that's the cheapest I've ever seen new, but that was black friday). It is a great gun, as long as you use a magazine with metal lips you will have no problems.

Someone should recommend a Ruger 10/22. Those are great little guns, and not too expensive.

Thanks for the responses guys! I have been leaning toward the 10/22, and it sounds like a lot of people like them. One of my buddies used to have a one with a 30 shot banana clip, that was a cool gun.
The 10/22 is definitely on the short list, are there any other suggestions out there?

go with the 10/22, two of my good friends have them and they are nice. i didnt know about the 10/22 aftermarket so i bought a remington 597. it nice shoots great but no aftermarket, well you can get 30rd'ers stocks and barrels but nothing like the selection for the 10/22.
