A friend of mine, who is 76 but seems more like 50, purchased a Marlin 22 WRM bolt rifle about two weeks ago and brought it to me to install an old cheap Japanese 3 to 9 power scope that I gave him came over today with CCI ammo for me to site it in. When I installed the scope on the see through mounts he bought I pulled the bolt and looked back and forth through the barrel and the scope until I got the cross hairs lined up on the top of a fence post about 100 yards away. Today I shot a rock that was about three inches in diameter about 100 yards away, I couldn't believe how right on I had the scope, three shots fired all within two inches of each other. Then I shot at a piece of bark one inch wide at the same distance and hit it. If I ever buy a 22 rifle I would definately consider a Marlin, Wal-Mart price $197 comes with two magazines, a 5 round and a 7 round.
