The Ruger American is another gun I would have a look at. It's a nice gun for the price. Walmarts in this area have the American for around $350. I have shot a Marlin X gun a lot but the one I have been shooting is a 22 wmr. It is very accurate. If I miss a coyote it is not the guns fault.

+1 for the Marlin!

but half a point for a 2nd hand rifle that you may know a bit about eg friends friend with a good reputation for light use of the rifle eg sight in an do a few seasons.
an be slightly more open about calibre.

Marlin here as well savage is not the only accurate gun, the end.

last summer i bought my youngest a marlin 270. i had intended to get him a savage. the savages were on sale for 240 and the marlin was an even 300. after handleing them both i settled on the marlin. it just felt alot nicer in the hands and when shouldered. it shoots fine. you will probably be happy with either one.
