Ya and the marlin x7s in blued/black costs $299-$324 w tax here in missouri. They are forgiving and tack drivers. My 270 x7l will out shoot my buddies brand new 700 sps 270 anyday of the week with factory federal ammo, little loan my reloads. He also has the x7s in 243 and its an accurate little cuss.
