I have one. I love it. Beats the heck out of a Ruger 10-22.

i love my model 60, its older than me [by 3 years] and has suffered serious abuse/neglect before it came to me, yet it still functions and is still dead on accurate [as long as im doing my part]

I've been to the range with the Marlin 60 VS the 10/22. I nicknamed the

60 "the typewriter" because it sounds like a secretary on an electric

typewriter going about 200 WPM.

The 60, IMHO, being a tubie, has a distinct dependability advantage over the

10/22. Rate of fire arguably being close to equal, when the Ruger is

banging on all cylinders, the 10/22 has a sustainable fire advantage,

obviously. (when it's not jamming)

Upside of 60s is they're better out of the box.

OTOH, 10/22s, with a little tweaking, can be legendary...

I have both. I've never had even 1 issue with my model 60. And until I got the butler creek 25 round mags and auto loaders, I could load my model 60 a lot quicker.

I like shooting the 10/22, but it jams a lot more than it ought to of you ask me. All I run through it is cci and clean it after ever shooting. JMHO

I have never had a problem with the Ruger with the stock 10 round mags, only aftermarket I ever tried was a cheap POS and it jammed, runs like a sewing machine with the stock mags and any ammo I've used, some of it old crap I picked up off the floor of the truck

Stillwater, I did not say that this pistol was good. I said that not all Kel-Tec products are POS. You should read all of a post before replying to it. I am not buying on price alone, I also want a quality product. There is a difference between cheap and inexpensive. I'm disabled and therefore on a very limited budget. That is why I asked the question. If I can find a good pistol for a good price that I can afford I will buy it. Sounds like with all the name brand firearms you have that you have quite a bit more money than I do. Sorry for not being in your income bracket.

To the Gun Smith. Thank you for the info. I was thinking about getting a Henry Rifle in .22 mag and am looking for a decent handgun that took the same ammo. Thanks again for the excellent information on the gun I asked about.

I'm disabled and on a limited budget myself...

That is why I pick quality over price. It is because quality is cheaper in the long run...

And, I did read the whole post, the first time. This is in response to your surly remark...!

I have owned 2 horrible in my opinion 22 LR. The first was the Walther P22, it wouldn't go thru a single mag without at least half or more of the rounds being either a failure to feed or fire (take your pick it was a toss up...lol)
The 2nd one and I bought it to replace the Walther, was a Sig Mosquito. There was no such thing as going thru a single mag without at least 5 or more failure to feed problems. I would never recommend either of the above mentioned pistols.

The Ruger SR22 solves the FTF and FTL problems. Over 300 rounds through it and narry a hickup. It will take any 22LR round you want with no problem.

Redscho: I solved the problem when I traded the Sig Mosquito in on a Beretta NEO. This gun eats all the 22LR ammo I put thru it. I've never fired a Ruger SR22, but I owned a Ruger 22/45 for many yrs. I shot the barrel out of it after about 30,000 rounds and sent it back to Ruger. They replaced the barrel as well as the extractor for "free" and sent it back to me. I continued to use it for many yrs. after that. Next time I go to the gun store, I will have to check out the SR22 and see how it looks and feels.
Thanks for the tip.
