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...
