I'm a big fan of my Savage Mark II. The Savage 64 not so much.

I have a Marlin M 60. Great gun, May have to strip it apart every once in awhile, But hey thats another excuse to stay away from the family.
It should be in the $150-$200ish Range, Depending on where you buy it. Unlike the 10/22 this is a gun you buy to keep it how it is, Not to put another Hundred $ into. I think Groups of 5 dime-sized at 50yds speaks for itself.
Good Luck in your choice. Have fun.

I've got several .22's in my collection that include a Marlin Papoose, a model 795 (stainless version of the model 60) and an early version of their bolt action. I bought the 795 for my son as his first rifle but purchased another scope for it becuase the factory scope was junk.

For myself, I've got a Ruger 10/22 target model that is totally stock but for a scope and bi-pod. I don't understand the comment posted above about having to put another $100 bucks in one before you can use it
I'll admit that there are quite a few add-ons that you can get for the 10/22 but that's up to the owner to decide if they want to pimp it out or not and not a requirement.

Marlins distinction (at least in print) is that it's the most popular .22 ever made. I admit they are great little guns. You'll not have any problems with it and I don't see you having to disassemble it at all to keep it clean.

Really? Almost every box of Ammo (500 Rounds, which is 2X the amount printed in the manual, In other words every other week) I have to breakout the brush, Screwdriver and Solvent.
And what I meant by the "Put another $100 in" is that usually, or atleast everyone I know with a 10/22, The owner finds a ... "In-convience" or Awesome add-on, and buys a Part for the gun. Not everyone does, But the vast majority do.

My point was that it is not necessary to put any additional money into them (the 10/22). Out of the box they are still a fine rifle. However it does speak to the popularity and versatility of the Ruger that so many companies offer add-ons such as they do.

Speaks more to the inadequecy of the original weapon...to me.

Especially since you can build a better 10/22 if you NEVER put any Ruger parts into it in the first palce...Volquartzen has made a fortune out of this fact.

Why do you not like the 10-22?

Order one of the Mossberg M44US Incompletes from the CMP and build it to your satisfaction. They'er less than a $100.00 delivered to your front door. Very good deal. I have two and am happy with them.

Still really depends on what you want the gun for. If you just want to do some plinking at the local sand pit then the 10/22 is a blast. I've had NO problems ever with either of my 10/22's and they have never been tweaked up with doodads except one has a nice piece of glass on it. I'm bettin the aftermarket 10/22 add-ons market adds up to the price of the actual weapons sold. Lot's of guys just like to make the little fellow mean looking but don't upgrade things of substance whatever they might be.

If I was to get something I wanted to shoot for groups off a bench I don't know what I would get but I'm not sure I would opt for a .22 although the price fits my wallet great when ammo is required.. I can afford to shoot through bricks of .22.
