Hello all, this is my first post on this particular forum and I've decided I'm going to get a new Marlin 60 or 10/22 with my tax refund check. I'm leaning more towards the Marlin 60 because I like the extra barrel length and tubular magazine. Even though I have had extensive experience shooting the 10/22, an older version, one with a tubular magazine, I am still leaning toward the Model 60. I don't plan to trick out my new rifle except for a few modifications to the trigger spring to give a lighter trigger pull, I plan to keep it mostly stock. I would like your thoughts about this choice / experiences with both of these firearms. Also, if you have any other suggestions on additional firearms in .22lr that you think I should consider please feel free to comment. Thank you all.
