No love for the Marlin 795? Extremely accurate. Just add Tech-sights and you're also good to take your kids to Project Appleseed too. Only issue is finding mags. They are plentiful on eBay but overpriced. Midway gets them in semi-regularly.

another vote for a (used, sub $100) Marlin M60 glenfield. I'd really recommend, however, that you just get a Phoenix Arms HP22 .22 autopistol. Sub $100 used, or $150 if it has both the 3" and 5" barrels. The 5" version is amazingly accurate, and the barrel lockup-change device is quite ingenious/effective.

there's far more call for skill with a pistol than a rifle these days, and the pistol takes much more practice to master, even close range defensive stuff. 10x as much. you can learn all you need to know about slowfire rifle stuff (22lr) in an hour. :-) The pistol, to include tactical knowledge, even a 'mere" .22, including flashlight use, etc, you are talking more like 50 hours. Centerfire and either hand, another 50 hours.

I have my Rem Nylon 66 22 LR, T
That I still use for small game,? and varmints etc. Love this gun.? the only problem over the years with it was mounting any type of a scope on it is impossible due to the receiver that Rem designed on it does not hold any type of a scope securely enough,? To stay mounted on this gun.? But the open sights at 100 yds are right on the money.

I was looking for a used 10/22 at the gun show and couldn't find one under $275. One guy had a used, beat-up model for $450! People have truly lost their minds.

In all my years I've never shot a Nylon 66 until 3 weeks ago. My friend got his through the internet several months ago. We went shooting in Pa. and he wanted to sight in the old Weaver scope that was mounted on it. At 50 yards we were eventually hitting repeatedly silver dollar size targets. It's a comfortable and an amazingly accurate rifle. It's crazy the accuracy that can be gotten from a .22, but I'd recommend a Nylon 66 to anyone who could find a nice one.

whereas the Marlins whoop booty right out of the box

A bone-stock Ruger 1022 is like a Chevy Nova with a 6 cyl...
runs alright, but does a lot better when you throw a 350 & better suspension parts in...
note the huge Chevy aftermarket...similar...
Places like Volquarzen actually make better 1022's than Ruger ever could...but cost around $800 to start.

Marlin gives precision right out of the box, but could use better looks (stocks/shiny toys)...
Kind of like a Yamaha V-Max...ain't gotta do much but personalize it.
hence the smaller aftermarket, but better rifle sales.

best plinker for the money - .22 Rifle/Rimfire Discussion

The Ruger 1022, created in 1963, has sold around 8 million rifles.
The Marlin 60, created in 1960, has sold over 16 million rifles...
The Marlin 795, created in 1996, has sold over 5 million rifles...and is quickly catching the 1022 since the 25-rd mags came out...


The reason Marlin has sold so many more than Ruger is because they are cheap guns. Honestly, the only gun worse than a model 60 is the 702 Plinkster. If you think a 10/22 wont shoot well out of the box you haven't shot a 10/22 or you cant shoot. I would put either one of my 10/22's up against a stock Marlin 60. I have 2 10/22's, Henry 22, Remington 510, Remington 512, Pink Crickett, and a Savage MKII and with some rounds down range to figure out the sights any 22 Ive ever seen is more accurate than the shooter

I've got to agree with bama. The 10/22, IMO, is the most accurate, open-sighted rifle I've had the pleasure to shoot. I will continue to hunt for one and WILL find one to buy.

Wow , I don't know what the hell you people have been talking about in this thread but I walked in the house and my 10/22 takedown was reading this thread so I decided to watch from a far for a sec or two and the damn thing started taking selfies. So I walked in to see whats up and it asked me to post this picture and tell all of you to screw !!! My goodness I've never seen it act like this before. Whatever you folks were talking about it did not like it !!
