Thanks Marlinman.
Did you ever have any issues with yours?

Believe it or not, a Ruger 10/22 with a really crappy mag/ feed issue.

My Marlin 60(oooooh, Marlin 60...) shot rings around it.

Before I dash for the bomb shelter, let me state I

don't think that particular 10/22 was a fair representation of

how well the average Ruger 10/22 shoots.

I think the junkyest rifles I have ever seen, are the ones made by the Henry Firearms Co. Open one up and look at how crappy their actions parts are finished. Junk, Junk, Junk...

I'll admit to being kind of a snob about the firearms I own. I have spent the better part of sixty-five years as a gun owner. I got my first .22 as a nine year old child. Back then when you bought a firearm it was a good one, not like the crap on the market these days.

If you want a really good .22 rifle, find a Winchester model 61, model 62A or a model 63. You'll have to put some major bucks up for those, but they're worth every dime of it. Other than that, for a consistently good .22 semi-automatic rifle get a Ruger 10/22 Sporter.

One of the best .22 bolt action rifles around today, are the Winchester 52's, if you can find one. I have a great one. The only other .22 bolt guns I would buy are those made by CZ...

Around here, a Winchester Model 61, in .22 magnum, will sell for about $1300.00.

Aren't you glad you have it?
