If you want to spend close to 500 bucks to get a rifle that shoots like a 160 dollar rifle get the Ruger.

Wow! Last ruger I got was 100 bucks at a pawn shop and will shoot dead on at 100 yds. I guess if you want to totally rebuild the rifle maybe but I see no reason to if all you want is a plinker.

The Marlin 60 is a good rifle. But I see the Ruger as a better alternitive with more options to make the rifle suite the shooter.

If u can find a older Ruger with a steal trigger right on but know they just make them cheaper now so the new ones are not as good as they use to be can always get one all tricked out all ready if u wanted to

He may be referring to the Takedowns they are a little higher than your normal 10/22 but not $500 by any means.

I also intend to get the kids started on this. My oldest will be 6 this month and I think he is almost mature enough to learn.

I am leaning toward the 10/22. Any gun with that much aftermarket support has to be a winner. Even though I would love to upgrade with aftermarket parts I probably won't because of the kids. Besides, I have an AR for that.

I do like the bullpup stock though. That looks like a lot of fun.
The ruger will be easier for the kids to handle and shoot.

if i remember correctly, the standard ruger 10/22 is about $40 more than the standard marlin 60 at my wal mart.

as i said in my first post, they are both great guns. i was surprised by the marlin's accuracy, it really was acccurate (bullet on top of bullet acccurate). but the ruger i shoot was plenty accurate, just not quite as much of a tack driver in my limited experience with it.

i think it boils down to two main differences: magazine difference and after market support. if you don't want to change it from stock(and you don't mind the tube magazine), i'd go with the marlin, because it is a great gun staight out of the box. if you think you might want to tinker with your gun or change it up (or prefer detach magazine), it has to be the 10/22.
