I think on an auto, some of a round's energy gets 'siphoned off' operating the action. On a bolt, it all goes to pushing the bullet. I'm not sure how much this affects the accuracy of the bullet or if an auto has a diminished recoil (not that there's much recoil to speak of on a .22lr). Heck, I'm not sure about any of the above at all. I'm just guessing here.

Thanks axe55 I'm going to go to my local gun store this week and see if they have any marlins in stock!! Thanks for all you're help!!

Tube fed and bolt action... I'm not familiar with such.

However, you can get tube fed and lever action.

Marlin's newer XT22 series has either a box magazine or tube magazine option on their bolt action rimfires.

they also come in 22WMR, tube or box magazine. i have my eye on a 22WMR with the box magazine and heavy barrel right now! i have a spot that has been missing it's 22 magnum for way too long! stainless steel with a MSRP of $326. comes in a synthetic stock, but a Boyd's laminated stock in nutmeg would look really good.

Scott, the price isn't bad. the one i want has a MSRP of $326, so i figure i can probably get it from my LGS for less than $300. even with tax, a new stock from Boyd's and a scope and rings, i should come out for less than $500 for all of it.
