so now that I'm shopping around, I'm curious: is there a particular model of the 10/22 that is more easily customisable? I've noticed that some of them have the little iron sights on them, some have a rail system, etc. is there a particular model that I should be looking out for if I want to gut it, or would just the standard little carbine work fine?

Standard carbine works fine. Mine is from 1985.

my suggestion on the 10/22 vs. the M60 is this. if you want one to modify and custom build into what you want in a 22 rifle, then get the 10/22. if you want one to buy new, pull it out the box and at most just want to maount a scope and go shooting or hunting, buy the M60.

I love my 10/22! there are some great options in here already, but I really prefer my setup. Ill include a link to my video. It is a pretty good video that shows how to completly take apart every piece and upgrade the parts I think need a little help. You should definaltly get a 10/22 and you will love it!

The 10/22 is definitely a great gun. The iron sights that come with the carbine or compact rifles are actually very accurate. I can shoot up a coke can at fifty all of the way to around seventy yards no problem with them. It's a good rifle to just carry into the woods and is my go to gun if I just want to shoot stuff in general. With or without a scope, you will be able to put meat on the table pretty consistently. I can't compare it to the marlin 60 because I have only ever shot 10/22s and have never felt the need to shoot with anything different. That tells me they are quality guns! It is your choice if you want to buy new or used and I think either way is fine. If you want to put all of those fancy aftermarket parts on it buy used and save money, if not, I would buy new.

I have a M60 and a 10/22. I bought the 10/22 with thoughts of 'tricking it out' but I like the way the Marlin shoots much better, so Im gonna sell the 10/22. The Marlin is from '82 so it has that 18 round tube mag, which is a plus. Tricks are for kids
