Don't rule out the marlin model 60 either, lots of guys don't like them because they are tube fed instead of removable magazine, I have one with a 4x32 Bushnell rimfire scope on it, it is a tack driving workhorse, can't tell ya how many squirrels I have taken with it, and you can do the after market stocks, there isn't nearly as many goodies as there is for the rugers but there are some, i tore mine down and polished all the internals and the action is smooth as silk now.

Thanks.
The action and barrel are two separate pieces, so you can not upgrade them as far as I know but I am not sure. The only downside to the takedown is there is not quite as many options for stocks out there. Like I mentioned before though, the ease of cleaning and storage for the gun is what made it worth it for me.

Ill take the marlin over the 10/22 any day of the week.

Exactly I have had 3 of the 10/22 an every one of them were jamming lil buggers, bad luck maby but I know a few othwers with the an same thing. My model 60's are anywhere from 40 to 5 yrs old an just damn durable good guns.

You can mod it quite a bit actually. The Butler creek folding stock fits easily with one cut across the forend so the barrel can be removed. I had a gunsmith cut down the barrel to 16.5" and thread it for a silencer or flash hider. He moved the front sight base back behind the threads so I still have my iron sights. Quite a few other stocks could probably be made to work. I did the mod so I could fit the scoped action back into the bag without removing the scope everytime.

Check Youtube for videos on this mod and how to do it.

All standard receiver upgrades work just the same on the takedown as the carbine.

As far as the Marlin crowds input I just repeat my first suggestion "Buy what YOU want not what anyone else thinks you should have. ". That should not be taken as a slur on the Marlin 60, Its a fine rifle and I have one myself. Its just not a 10/22. These little diffrences of opinion are what makes life interesting. Just my two cents worth....

If you're set on the 10/22 get the bare bones stock model and mod away...

Still not close to done with mine, sling, bi-pod, scope so far with a re-finish of the furniture on the 'to do' list...anybody's guess what I'll want to do to it next...

If it were me however, I'd defenitely want a stable full of .22's of all shapes and sizes. All the aforementioned rifles are excellent choices and since we're slinging recommendations, why not add a Henry lever action to the wish list?
