Look around for a used Marlin 81. Tube fed, lot of them around, good accurate hunting grade rifle, easy to scope if you want a scope.
Or a Remington 512 Scoremaster.
Hey! Old guns need love too! Just picked up a Marlin 81 for $60 a few weeks ago- toe of stock had been chipped, buttplate broken. Had a spare buttplate from an 81 I bought as a parts guns some years ago. Now I have a spare 81 to make a grandkid happy.
Neither the Marlin nor Remington is a benchrest target rifle, but will hold minute-of-squirrel at 50 yards.
And where are my manners? Welcome to the forum- when you get a minute, stop by the intro section, say hello, and tell us a bit about yourself.
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.
