ryno, i do like the marlin X7 rifles, i have three of them, 25-06, 7mm-08 and the 308 with a 26" heavy barrel. they shoot great and the stock accepts a lot of recoil, so they are very pleasant to shoot. IMO, they are very equal to the remington M700, which i own several of too, but were bought used and got good deals on. the X7's were bought new. would i buy another M700? yes if i get a good deal on it, but price wise, new the marlins are a better deal. i also plan on buy some more X7's for my collection too. ask MulieMaster about them too as he has several of them too.
