that is the OEM stock in the picture. just done some modifications to it.

Boyd's Gunstocks has laminates and walnut stocks for the X7 series. i put a grey laminate on my XS7 in 7mm-08. looks great and the prices are very decent as well. i have bought two of the Boyd's stocks and am very impressed with them.

i paid $370 for my XS7VH in 308, $360 for my XS7 in 7mm-08 and $390 for my XL7C in 25-06. right now i only have a 100 yard range here at the house, so most of my shooting is done here. all three perform very well and produce very small groups. all three will easily do well under half an inch if i do my part. but i also reload for all three so my loads are fine tuned to each rifle.

Oh ok thanks for some reason I always figured marlins were in the 6-900 dollar range always figured they were one of the top of the line brands.

Marlins are probably one of the best values in rifles. granted if you want heirloom quality, then you might need to step up to a really nice Remington M700 CDL or a Weatherby Mark V or something along those lines. but if you want a very well made rifle, accurate as anything else out there and more than some, at a decent price, then Marlin is a good choice. Marlin has been around for a long time and has a very good reputation for quality and accuracy. their rimfires are some of the best and are equal to some that cost twice as much.

i haven't bought a rifle with a scope in years, except the used rifle i buy from time to time. even if it's an option, for the price difference you can get much better than what they would use. most of the scopes used on combo rigs are decent at best and some are just downright pure junk.

i'm not even sure if the Marlins are available with a scope. never really checked into it myself.

go for it! that's a decent price for that rifle. you can always upgrade the scope later if you want or need to. new rifles, i would rather choose my own scope. just my preference.

my XS7VH in 308 has a Swift Premier 8-32x50 i put on it, paid $265 for that scope. my XS7 in 7mm-08 has Swift Premier 6-24x50 on it, paid $240 for it. my XL7C in 25-06 has a Nikon Prostaff 4-12x40 on it and paid $200 for it.

If you get a chance, check out the Remington 783. See how it compares to the others in the price range. I have'nt picked one up yet. But everything I've seen so far they are a good contender.
