I do believe some are ready for a scope right out of the box, some aren't. It depends on what model you get. I'm looking at the youth model and it has a grooved receiver ready for a scope.

Why do you need a 30 round magazine as a "standard"? You have a to buy a european target rifle to get a more accurate rifle than a Marlin Model 60 right out of the box for around $175. It has a 14 round tubular magazine. You can take it out of the box, sight it in and shoot groups smaller than an inch. That is adequate accuracy in my opinion. I haven't used a rifle to hunt termites or ants.

Regarding magazine capacity: Numerous states have laws limiting magazine capacity to 10 rounds. The Marlin 60 used to hold 18 rounds. Marlin compromised with the states at 14 rounds so they can sell it all over the US. You can buy all the off brand AK/AR clone 22's you want. If I can't go to brownells, midway or a mainstream parts supplier to get parts and accessories for a 22 it's not even on my radar.

Several US gun makers have a bolt action 22 on the market for under $200 that will shoot sub half inch groups right out of the box. I am not into bolt action 22's but plenty of forum members have pointed them out in previous posts.

Ok I need to bring this thread back. I'm getting my first gun for Christmas. What should I get Henry .22 lever action or a ruger 10/22. I like how the 10/22 is semi auto and has detachable mags but the Henry take more ammo types. (cci shot shell, colibri,shorts etc) and with Obama wanting to take away 10+ round mags, bx25s might not be available later

I have both and they are both very accurate. The Henry does shoot shorts and shot but I have never shot either. Never had the need. The 10/22 comes factory most of the time with a 10rd magazine which is legal in all 50 states (Or 57 if you ask Obama). If the 25rd mags arent legal there is a clip that will hold 3-10rd magazines making mag changes quicker.

The Marlin 795 has a 10 round detachable magazine. For those who might be interested in the Marlin but don't like the tube fed model 60.

By far the 10/22 is the better choice, I own one myself. Very reliable, accurate and most of all, fun! TONS of attachments as well!

I have a tube fed model 60 it was my first gun and I would definetly not recommend it the tube is a hassle to fool around with. the only .22 that I will ever buy is a ruger 10/22 they are the most versatile best shooting .22 on the market
