Ha ha! Well to answer the question though, the only reason I can think of for a suppressor on a .22 is for personal preference or zombie control. The .22 is one of the best a and easiest to suppress.

You bought a suppressor, put it on your ruger, but decided it looked toyish, so you took it off?

Please do extrapolate on this one...

I paid a $200 tax stamp as well as the price of the can, not because it looked cool.

Most people buy the aftermarket crap to make up for inadequacies of their shooting skills. Easier to blame the gun and throw money at the problem than actually learn how to shoot.
Popularity...
13 million Marlin 60's have been sold since they were created in 1960.
7.5 million Ruger 1022's have been sold since 1964.
Well, we can see which is the most popular, can't we?

There is a reason that Volquartzen, Tuffer Buffer, Green Mountain Barrels, and a thousand other companies
made tons of money on the Ruger 1022...its made like an AK47. Not real precise, but accurate to 1960's standards (3" pie plate at 50 yards).
Reliability & accuracy is enhanced by Tuffer Buffers, new trigger groups, billet actions, better barrels...but by that time,
you might as well have bought a CZ or Browning....because you'd spend less!!


The 1022 is tin-can accurate at 25 to 50 yards right out of the box...
but if you want more out-of-the-box performance, the Marlin 60 & 795 are Dime-sized & smaller groups out of the box at 25 to 50 yards...
the lightly tweaked do even better. That's a big difference. Especially for $100 less money.
You can get a wicked-cool Boyd's Evolution or Thumbhole stock AND a 795 and STILL not pay as much as a new 1022.
You don't NEED a Boyd's laminate stock, but they do look so nice! Several types to choose from at low prices...hehehe

Low-Cost Tips & Tweaks
You spend a little time with some Acraglass or JBWeld to bed the action, you start driving CZ owners nuts, and forget the standard 1022's even exist.
Spend a few minutes polishing the trigger/hammer mating area and the bolt/rails for extra-smooth function & lighter trigger,
and Marlins shoot sweeter than many rifles costing a lot more...


The reason modern Marlins do so well is the Micro-groove barrels.
If one studies how its done, it boggles the mind that more barrel-makers don't do it...
as its less expensive and inherently more precise, for you have less lead bullet distortion as it goes down the barrel,
along with a better grip seal 12 lands & grooves keep the gasses behind the bullet for consistant pressures...
and consistancy is KEY for .22 rimfires...so when you use a known consistant ammo (like CCI Minimags/Aguila/etc)
the pressures are the same, and the bullet tends to fly the same time after time...which gives one better precision.
The last thing one should know...is about ammo. Every rifle has its favorite loads...as we all know.
With Marlins, they like fatter, jacketed bullets...as micro-grooves are slightly smaller than Ballard grooves,
you need a fatter bullet for the best precision...so your ammo selection is as important as pillar bedding and trigger jobs.

I've owned both...and learned to tweak both Rugers & Marlins...on the whole, you don't need to do much with a Marlin...
bedding the action, polishing the bolt/rails, & a trigger job pretty much solve everything but cosmetic factors...
which (minus the bedding) is EXACTLY what one does to a new 1911a1...lol
On the other hand, the Ruger 1022, to just get one EQUAL to a Marlin in precision, needs a new target barrel in the least,
because the OEM Ruger barrels are not built for precision. It'll still need bedding and a trigger job,
but that's normal to optimize/accurize any rifle.

And even with all that I've written above...my next carbine will probably be a new Calico M-100 Tactical
I'd rather have 100-rounds per mag to plink with than 25 (795) or 30 (1022)!!
Oddly enough, they tend to beat 1022's straight out of the box as well!!

Last month, I purchased a Anschütz 520 (CIL300 in the US) for small money. It cost me € 120,- (yes Euro, since I live in germany).
This rifle is pretty accurate, as I find. I don`t have a scope on it, but a Bushnell Red Dot and I shoot at 50 meters.

It`s fun to shoot, accurate and of pretty good and solid quality. German quality.....
And pretty easy to detail strip. You also can still get spare parts for it and it has a normal magazone, no tube mag.

Now I am not the best shot in the world, but here are three target shot at
50m with different types of .22 ammo.







and here a pic of the rifle. It`s the one in the front:
