I own 2 Ruger 10/22's. A Henry Lever .22, A cheap Mossberg Plinkster, A Remington 510 Targetmaster, A Remington 512 Sportmaster, and a pink cricket. All of them are better guns and will outshoot todays marlin model 60.

Anyone who thinks 10/22's need work to be accurate guns either hasn't ever owned one or cant shoot. That claim is BS.

If you want fun and dependability take a look at a Henry lever action round or hexagonal barrel. Mine will put ten shots into a half inch group using Thunderbolt 22 lr. They are inexpensive, easy to maintain and will shoot everything from cheap junk to the best you can find. You can load it up with 22 shorts, longs (hadn't seen those in years) and long rifle all at the same time. I don't trust any semi 22. They are just too finicky about the ammo you put through them. The Henry is heavy but I like that. Seems to help with stability. Have fun and good luck

I just retired and have taken up a new hobby of plinking. I bought 2 guns. The first a revolver Smith & Wesson 617 has 10 rounds 22LR is stainless with 6" barrel. I put on Altamont rosewood grips with S&W logo. Of the 22 revolvers it is very high priced. It is an awesome shooting, fun to shoot with speed loader. I looked at a lot of 22LR rifles to go along with my revolver as my next plinker. I considered the Marlin 60 and Ruger 10/22 both are very good lines of selection, I like the 10/22 takedown a lot....But, here it comes, I live in California where. The land where the NRA is about to take legal action on new laws such as no lead in bullets, no clips over 10 rounds, no guns for those who have a DUI. Registration to buy ammo like buying a gun. I could go on and on but getting back to the rifle I bought. So for being from and in the Golden State of California. I got a Golden Boy. Henry Rifle 22LR. If I am going to be a plinker, I will shoot a pretty good looking rifle. The Golden Boy meets all California laws, current and pending. It is a fun gun to shoot, pretty as a woman on a date to take out. I also got the engraved receiver cover personalized. Picking 20 of your own words that can include your name. I am a huge fan of buy what is made in the USA. Henry Repeating Arms is a very short distance from the Statue of Liberty in Bayonne N.J. It is pride of Liberty, from east coast to West. The Henry rifles are awesome. The others are not to be discounted because they are also very good. It's about, fun, good times, selecting what gives you ride and joy to enjoy. This is my very first posting to this. I am a newbie to this and guns being retired.

Welcome john. Stop by the introduction section and tell us some more about yourself. Henry makes a beautiful rifle, that is for sure. Grab a cup of coffee and sit in front of the computer and start reading. There is a lot to learn on this site!

+1 on that. If you want to build a bench model with a lighter trigger, etc, yeah they will be more accurate...especially the trigger, but then again it would not be as good to just grab and go hunting or plinking

I prefer the 10/22 with open sights, as the effective range of the rifle and my eyesight tend to be about the same.

The very best 22lr Rifles would be either an Anschultz or a Suhl 150. Any others are pretty much a plinking rifle compared to them.
