My apologies. I suppose my post wasn't as helpful as it could have been. For what it's worth, I find the Marlin rifles to be high quality and the Model 25 (.22 LR) to be very user friendly. About the only thing I could find to complain about would be that it's feed via a magazine clip. I prefer tube magazines because they just seem more reliable, IMO. With odd sized ammo, you could possibly have a FTF with the Marlin 25 magazine--though I never have! Otherwise, it's a great rifle and just as accurate as heck.
I'm not sure if they're still manufactured. I kind of doubt it but I don't know for sure. Not sure on the current price either.
