beings i have a Marlin M60 i would go with that. now if i were to have to go out and a buy a 22 rifle, quite possibly would go with either a bolt action from Marlin or Savage. but the M60 is a very good semi auto 22 rifle. accurate, well made, and reliable. if i need to, it will dump all 18 rounds pretty dang quickly! so it goes as slow or as fast as i need.
