Any of the guns mentioned (Anzchutz, CZ, Savage, Cooper, even Marlin) will do just fine, so buy the best your budget will allow, and start nailing coyotes with it.
I killed quite a few few coyotes with the .22 Mag, and same as with any other hunting, SHOT PLACEMENT is what counts. You don't need to do headshots, but if you're confident enough to, go ahead. I always shot for the lungs.
For coyotes, it's a good idea to stick to the standard loads. I found the best was the old Winchester 40 grain JHP. The only light load I'd feel confident to shoot for coyotes is the 33 grain Remington Premier Accutip- it's the finest quality rimfire ammo I've ever shot. Keep your shots to 150 yards maximum.
