I have two Marlin 795's and they eat pretty much anything I put in them. Plus they are more accurate than most stock .22 rifle. The 10/22 is a good gun if you have $450+ to spend and want something very thick with reliable high-cap mags. But for that same amount of money I bought two Marlin 795's, several 10 round mags, a scope, a red dot sight, two soft cases and two slings. That's a lot of value for guns this reliable and accurate.
