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.
