Are we talking about the same rifle? I thought that was a Marlin/Glenfield Model 60?

The rifle in question IS in fact a Marlin/Glenfield model 60.

Default 10/22

I bought one of these at 14 months ago..got it and a box of ammo and scope at the same time, (brand of ammo I forget)..after reading on how many guys liked the rifle and all the stuff you could buy for them....(I was amazed at the money they had invested in these plinkers)...anyway I loved the looks of the carbine but after pacing off what I figured to be 44 yards I tried it out and was disappointed..as I had a bullet drop of a solid 12", maybe 13"..anyway I sold the gun after that..I just got back into the 22 rifles, a scoped Marli 22 magnum B/A..a Savage s/a with scope and just for looks alone an Ithica 49m..Im not a real small caliber gun fan but for plinking these should do..I have read where the Israeli police/military have used the 10/22 for taking out "hostiles"..seen pics of the IDF using this gun with huge silencers on them..wonder where I messed up with mine..anyway congrats on the gun

What do you mean you had 12-13" of bullet drop at 44 yards? A .22LR don't drop that much @ that distance regardless of what it's fired from. Are you saying your 10/22 wasn't zeroed for that range or what?

Default bullet drop

Had to be that..I put the scope on the gun and shot as it was..my target was an empty antifreeze container..at that yardage it was dead on..but I had to aim about 2" above the container handle to hit the botton 1" of the container..the scope I put on enabled me to use iron sights too...pretty much the same results..my buddy came over and he got about the same..at which time I said well something isnt right and hes been into guns since 6 yo and has a house full of hunting guns and is a limit bagger every yr..his reply was .."well its only a 22..you should have bought a 22 mag"..I dont know..we have shot all our guns in a gravel bed..and with my bigger calibers AK,AR M1 Im a pretty good shot at about 80-90 yards..maybe I just wasnt into the 22s' at that time and didnt give a care..back then the smallest gun I owned (besides the 22)was a 92F and was sort of dissapointed with that..loved my 357's and 45s' tho..hopefully now Ive got three 22 cals ..(the price of ammo played a big factor in getting these)I will try harder to get "into" them..one other point, the 22 when I did hit the empty plastic antifreezee container..it was an old brittle container and the rounds would end up inside the container..flattened..but I expected them to go thru both sides of the container easy..nope

Default Update

Picked up a Simmons 3-9 x 32 for the 10/22. Scope came with rings but I picked up a set of Millett medium rise just in case my head is too big for the standard 3/8. Picked Millett after seeing Tango recommend them in another thread although I wound up spending $25 on rings to mount a $50 scope thought they were worth the extra money.

Hope to get to the range this weekend for a little plinking.

Jpyle, have you fired it with that scope on it yet? It should do the job.

Haven't yet had the chance. Weekends are typically the only range time that I get and the last few have been busy. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks. Really looking forward to it, I need some stress relief...
