Still doing my home work, for my first .22.
I had my mind set on the Marlin 795, for the price. But I have been reading around and seeing that they tend to jam. One story was a about a guy that bought two of them and One jammed and the other didn't.... that worries me.
I am assuming that the reason for it jamming is the type of ammo?!?! Are there any other factors that could cause the rifle to jam? I know all rifles will eventually jam at some point in time, but hell I don't even know what to do when it does.
But anyways I am still looking around and out of the Marlin 795, Marlin 60, Ruger 10/22, and Savage 64. The only one I have gotten to actually hold is the Ruger, and it was down right sexy. The price has me holding back, because once you add ammo, targets, a scope and possibly the back ground check fee, $250 becomes $300+.
Also I can't seem to find a Ruger that still boxed, But I can go up to Academy and get the Marlin brand new in box. So this is where I am stuck.
