If you want high-cap mags and a large variety of aftermarket parts, go with a Ruger 10/22. I shot a few of my friends Ruger 10/22 and they're decently accurate and reliable. I own a Remington 597 myself. I bought it used for $125. It's the basic model with a dark gray synthetic stock and matte black action and barrel. I discovered that the stock inletting wasn't quite right. It's supposed to be free floating but it was touching the barrel about halfway down. I took a dremel to it and also polished the hammer and sear engagement surfaces. Now it shoots sub-moa at 100 yards and has a nice (but slightly heavy) trigger pull. Great rifle for the price. I've never had any major issues with it.
