I sold my 10/22 because it wasn't as reliable as I wanted. I ended up replacing it with a Marlin 795 after getting the itch for another scoped rifle. The Marlin is probably about the same reliability-wise, but it vastly more accurate. Even with the scope on 3x, hitting the 12" gong at 200 yards is a guaranteed 10/10 affair. I've only shot one group at 100 yards, and there were 9 shots inside 2", with one flier bringing it to 3". I was using Aguila Interceptor ammo (40gr@1470fps), which I've heard is relatively inaccurate.

I own both, and they are very different guns. The Ruger wears a 3-9x40, and the Marlin is factory irons. I like mag fed sometimes, other times I prefer tube. I will admit the Marlin is out of the box accurate.

I had a 10/22 for a while. Mabye I got a rare lemon but the gun was a jammatic with Ruger factory magazines. It was traded for a Marlin 60 and I have been very happy with it.

I've got both,and they each have their +'s and -'s.

But both are fun and accurate.

Marlin 60, I've had mine since around '72. Accurate as can be and fun to shoot.

About an hour ago.... I made a head shot on a squirrel about 50 yards out. I used my bone stock Ruger 10/22 DSP with a 3-9x40 set on 6.
