    Marlin 60...way more precise outta the box.

    But I really prefer the Marlin 7000...hope Remmy makes a 795 heavy-barrel version one day...

    And seriously...more aftermarket MFR's need to get on board to make stocks for the 60/795's...
    right now Boyd's is making a fortune with wooden laminates of several kinds, but I'd like to see a few more tactical stocks...

    You can only mod so many airsoft P90 stocks to fit Marlin 795's before you get bored... ;)

    I have both. The Marlin is hella accurate but the Ruger is oh so reliable. I shoot American style (fire enough rounds to hit something) so my preference is Ruger.

    So can a Marlin...

    Later changed the stock with an ATI-SKS Retrofit kit to make it a folder.

    Wifey's Marlin 60 in a Boyd's Ross Thumbhole stock which was Natural Laminate...stained pink.

    But, the Calico M-100 makes me feel all Patriotic...

    For all those who like the Ramlines...just found out a few minutes ago that they are BACK IN STOCK!!

    Limited Quantities @ $15.40 each!!!!!
    Stock, Ram-Line Lock Arm, Synthetic

    You will NEVER find a Ramline for a Ruger 1022 this inexpensively!!
    Oh, and don't forget, if you want to make it a Folding Stock, get an ATI SKS-Retro-Fit kit for about $9 at yer local gunstore/online dealer.

    I sold my 10/22 because it wasn't as reliable as I wanted. I ended up replacing it with a Marlin 795 after getting the itch for another scoped rifle. The Marlin is probably about the same reliability-wise, but it vastly more accurate. Even with the scope on 3x, hitting the 12" gong at 200 yards is a guaranteed 10/10 affair. I've only shot one group at 100 yards, and there were 9 shots inside 2", with one flier bringing it to 3". I was using Aguila Interceptor ammo (40gr@1470fps), which I've heard is relatively inaccurate.

    I own both, and they are very different guns. The Ruger wears a 3-9x40, and the Marlin is factory irons. I like mag fed sometimes, other times I prefer tube. I will admit the Marlin is out of the box accurate.

    I had a 10/22 for a while. Mabye I got a rare lemon but the gun was a jammatic with Ruger factory magazines. It was traded for a Marlin 60 and I have been very happy with it.

    I've got both,and they each have their +'s and -'s.

    But both are fun and accurate.

    About an hour ago.... I made a head shot on a squirrel about 50 yards out. I used my bone stock Ruger 10/22 DSP with a 3-9x40 set on 6. :cool:
