You should be able to find a used Marlin 981T under $200, but you can buy one of the new Marlin XT-22TR (blue) for less than $200, or the XT-22TSR (stainless) for about $240 and they will have the new Pro-Fire adjustable trigger. They just don't have one with a wood stock in the tube feed, 22-short/long/long rifle versions, the tube magazine models in 22lr have the synthetic stock.
The XT-22TR is out of stock at Bud's, but it was only $177 new.

I recommend checking your local Wal-Mart for one of the new XT-22TR (blue) or XT-22TSR (stainless) rifles if you don't have to have a wood stock. Their prices seem to be pretty close to Bud's Gun Shop.
The Marlin 925 and 880 are both clip-mag bolt actions. The lever action rifles from Marlin and/or Henry are nice, but hard to find under $200, I haven't looked into the pump action rifles.
