All look potentially fun.

It depends on:

a) what other 22 LR's are already in your collection and
b) if you have a special interest or 'theme' for you firearms.

For instance, I have 'accurate' and 'tactical' and 'truck gun' 22's, but no 'match grade' or 'historic' ones. Since I don't have the patience for 'match' guns that I'll never be good enough a shot to appreciate, I'd opt for something 'historical'.

Or one I could put a ladder-sight on and do 300 yard shooting so I could pretend I was shooting 1,000 yards with a 45-70 like they did 120 years ago...

+3 - The #4 roller...……. #4's in excellent/restored condition are harder to come by than the other choices.

The DSM 34 would be my pick, but I have a thing for military trainers.

Those two you did get are nice. Sure, I liked the look of the rolling block best, but I would not turn any of the three down. Sort of like choosing who is best looking among the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders.
