Don't own one but I have not heard a bad thing about them yet. The general consensus is that you can't go wrong.

Buy it! Buy it! Buy it! I am a die hard marlin person and its because they are great rifles. I have 4 x7's now if that tells you anything, plus about 4 22s from marlin. They are tack driving accurate, well made, cheap, beginner friendly, reliable, and have a amatuer adjustable trigger. The amatuer part is marlins own words by the way.

ryno, you just can't go wrong with the Marlin X7 series of rifles. well made, accurate and inexpensive. the only downside to them is the limited amount of calibers available, but with the calibers they offer, they do have a broad range. the caliber selection might be one way they keep the cost down. i have three of them and will add more in the future. yes go ahead and by the X7 in what ever caliber you want, you won't regret it, i haven't.

Totally agree. The Marlin X7 line of bolt action rifles are awesome. You will not be disappointed.

weve sold several over appx two years we have carried them. The gunsmith has sighted in several for customers and claims at 100 yards you can cover a 3 shot group with a dime we have had no complaints at all from them. great price point as well

I don't own one but it always come among top 5 recommended rifle when similar question is asked so I believe you cannot go wrong with it. That said, Savage seems to be the most recommended.

both the Marlin X7's and the Savage Axis's are accurate, well made and priced right rifles. i own three Marlin X7's and enjoy all of them. i have not owned the Savage Axis, but have a friend who has a couple of them and i have had shot them both severall times. my reasons are purely on a personal reason for the Marlin over the Savage, i like the looks of the Marlin better. IMO, if two rifles perform very close, and price wise are very close, which one do you choose? the one that pleases the eye!

I agree, all else equal, it all boils down to personal preference.
