Used 10/22 can be picked up cheap and will work fine. If your teaching class you need a solid functional rifle . Buy a 795 marlin for 135 or a used beater marlin 60. Don't mess around with parts guns for teaching .
Yeah, I was afraid that the parts would cost just about as much as a new rifle. And drilling holes... I'll save that for Bedroom Olympics later this evening
I have a Marlin 795 for my small daughter. I cut 3 inches off the stock to fit her well. I don't really like that rifle although it was $125 with a $25 dollar rebate to boot! Some of our firing sequences are timed and the marlin Mags are a bit trickey. They require 2 hands to extract. Me likeum Ruger Rifle!
Thanks for the tips guys!
