Howdy,
I also agree with the Walther P22 being a pos. I had one and replaced it with the Sig Mosquito. It was worse for ftf. I am sticking with the Rugers or Browning Buckmarks. SHave a goodun!!!!

Sorry to hear about problems with Mod 60's I have a Glenfield/Marlin Mod 60 w/scope and a Marlin Mod 99M1 carbine, both have been flawless.

He prob had the probs with the model 60 becouse he dosent know how to clean it. They get picky like any auto loader when dirty. I have several model 60 marlins an they are flawless as long as u are smart enough to properly maintain one

I used to shoot my grand dad's revelation, which looks identical to the Marlin 60, it was sold by sears. I think they are the same thing. To my knowledge the thing hasn't been cleaned since it left the factory except for once when I was feeling industrious about 15 years ago. My Grand dad had it since he was a young feller. Ha Ha, forgot the point of my post!! Any way, it still works, and is still very accurate.

This one was my grandpas and before that who knows but this 514 is still a tack driver with anything i run through it

I own two .22's with probably the worst reputation on the internet ... the P22 and the Colt/Umarex M4.

Both guns have proved very reliable over the past 2-3 years.
Don't believe everything you read.
