I'll try to answer directly. Because the Marlin looks very plain, and the 10/22 beats in with the variety of options.

the 10/22 is a good option if you like to customize or tinker, but there isn't anything wrong with the Marlins. not near the parts and accessories for the Malins like there is for the Rugers, but then again, it really doesn't need them as it's pretty damn good right out the box.

All the reviews I've read on both have been positive and they're close to the same price. Its really just a matter of whether or not she likes them in person.

then all you can do is try them out and see which one she likes better. personally i don't think you can go wrong with either one.

To me the 795 is awesome straight for the box. All I did to mine is add a scope, sling, and two 25rd mags.

that's all they need.

my model 60 didn't have any swivel studs so when i refinished it, i added some. the grooved receiver rings were the only thing i had to buy for mine to install a scope i already had.

No doubt it is. You were asking about the public in general. So much the better: Outshooting someone who paid twice as much for his rifle is better than sex. Well, okay

i have heard that they made a version in about the early to mid 1970's that had a 22" barrel and a 20 round tube magazine. but so far i haven't seen proof of one yet.
Yeah, my 1971 has the 18 round tube magazine. I've never seen a longer tube but wouldn't be surprised if some are out there. Recent Model 60s have a 14 round tube.

Marlin has sold millions of them since 1960!

Like it so much the Wife has my 10/22 until I get a newer one. The 702 is as good as any other 22 Semi auto with a Std barrel
...just keep it clean. My best investment for that rifle has not been the Ext. Mags, the TruGlo 2X42 electro prismatic optic, the $12 Bi-pod or the sling. It's the 22 caliber Bore Snake I bought to clean the Barrel with. I'm going to do something so foolish, it just might work. I'm going to shoot Rimfire Challenge with it this Summer & Fall...
The Entrance fees for most Matches are $35 early reg for one, $50 for 2, we're doing it as Husband & Wife...I have an idea but I need to talk about if with a few folks first.
