For .223, grab a Keltec SU-16.

Inexpensive, yet accurate

Medium-weight tapered Micro-groove barrel lets you put shots in a dmie at 50 yards.
Inexpensive accessories if you wanna pimp it out.

That stock only costs $14.90 at Numrich...add an ATI SKS Retro-fit kit for $9 more to make it a folder.

There is NO less expensive, better firing rifle out there.
I got mine at Cabelas last month for $124.99 plus the $25 rebate. Cant beat that! Can you?

I found that loading the little mags is not fun and I would rather load my 10-22 rotary mags.

for plinking nothing is better than a ruger 10/22, trust me this is what i consider a must have gun. it is magazine fed unlike the marlin, so if zombies attack just drop one mag and stick in another. it will run you about $200 and is well worth it. best .22 for the money, hands down. i wouldnt even consider anything else.

Have you seen the Marlin 795? It's easily the equal of the 10/22, has a stacked magazine that is removable and has been selling for $99.99 after MIR. And of course there's nothing wrong with the fixed tubular magazine of the Model 60. The Ruger has the advantage of countless addons available but the Marlin comes out of the box more accurate and overall the better gun.

i have not, guess after getting a 10/22 i haven't even looked at another .22
i'm sure the marlin is a great gun, but as you said about the 10/22, shoot you can make the thing look like something out of a space invaders movie.lol. mine is stock and it kills squirells and stray cats and tin cans like a champ. for half the money though, it's worth a look.

Yeah I'm definitely a fan of the 10/22 and you can turn it into almost anything with aftermarket parts. Not so much in the aftermarket for the Marlins but out of the box they're good to go for many applications. And that's the main reason to choose between them, what you want to do with it. For me a scope was all I wanted so the Marlin was hard to beat. BTW, got my first one in 1971 and it still works great and nothing has broken in 39 years!

If your looking for a prebuilt AR then you can't get much cheaper than CMMG Bargain bin AR's.
