My dad had an old Remington bolt/tube mag .22 that I really enjoyed shooting. It must have been a 512 as near as I can remember. He sold it because he messed up the sight while coon trapping. I would like to buy a gun in similar configuration and I stumbled across the Marlin 981T. I wonder if anyone has had experience with it. I am also open to looking at other both new and used bolt/tube mag. guns and would like recommendations.
