I own a few of each, I would say that they are both out-of-the-box equally accurate. Some are a touch better than others but in general they are comparable. My most accurate is a 10/22 but that one has been heavily modified.

I have several .22lr rifles and pistols. I think the Marlin has 'out of the box' advantage due to the micro groove rifling they use. The M60 is tube fed, while the 10/22 uses the rotary mag. I keep my 10/22 handy for squirrel control due to the mag. Easy to load/unload compared to the tube. But my Marlin will hold a tighter group.

Default 10/22 or MARLIN

I also want to mention another reason why I LIKE the 60 better is that it has a much slimmer profile than the Ruger. and that is because of the 10 round rotary magazine they use. The 60 is tube fed and therefore has a slimmer profile! Did I say I like the Marlin 60 better... Cliff

until you get a new Green Mountain barrel & a VQ trigger on that 1022....hence $500

The average Marlin will give you dime & smaller groups at 50 yards if you can do your part...with naught but a sling & a bench
the average 1022 bone stock will give you average 2-3" groups setup the same...1-2" from a lead sled...
Its been beaten to death on other forums, with tons of pics & stats...there are individual variations,
but the Marlin Microgroove barrel when matched with appropriate ammo is disgustingly precise...point&click interface...LOL

The only hiccup was the 2005-2011 Marlins...which were hit/miss on quality (mostly rough internals & badly indexed barrels)...
due to Marlin going up for sale in 2005 and the workers geting ever more disgruntled up to the move to NY & KY...
then its taken about a year for the rimfire lines to start doing things right...new people, new line...big mess

The last two deliveries of 2012 XT-22's have been up to what I'd consider 1990's standard...which is solid mechanically with minor fitment issues,
but that is to be expected for a sub-$160 rifle...they ain't gonna do a fit & finish like a CZ without charging you more...
The 795's & 60's have been solid for the last four months...they've resolved the 3/8" accessory rail issue that plagued for almost a decade...
so for what its worth, New Marlin in my view is doing as well as 1990's-2004 Marlin...which was pretty darn decent

Mind you, Olde Marlin weren't Perfect either...I've got a 1952 Marlin 336, which has a badly indexed barrel...decided to leave it be...
Marlin has always offered a dang fine barrel attached to a solid-working (some say clunky) receiver...
and those rifles will literally take a couple century's worth of wear due to the heavy-duty nature of the build.

As far as accessories...there's bullpup stocks, any airsoft build you can slap a 1022 in also fits a Marlin (Well P90/etc),
and one guy even takes M1-carbine stocks & sticks 795's in 'em...Boyd's Riflestocks has 7 variations of laminates...
DIP has trigger assembly kits and other toys...
but honestly, the Marlins don't NEED much...already have great barrels...so all ya really need is a stock, trigger job, & some Tech-Sights/scope/etc

Marlin 795 is starting to look pretty good. At about $150 you get a micro groove barrel and a mag fed semi auto. With an optic it is still priced below a 10/22.

Winna, Winna, chicken dinna.

I'd go with the 10/22 personally, you can trust Ruger, also there's a kick ass bullpup kit for the 10/22 just for fun type kit.

I have both and love them. for convenience I would go with the marlin. The ruger is just a nice to have if the financials are a concern. The marlin is as good as the ruger unless we are talking of the take down model LOL
