    Have the Savage and want the Marlin as I think a bolt is more accurate, like adjustable trigger and tube fed allows LR, shorts and longs. Opinions welcome!

    Fast shooting vs slow shooting, choose one, both are accurate and the bolt will be more reliable. Also if you want to rapid fire the bolt gun will obviously be slower.

    I recently faced the same decision. I ended up with a Marlin XT 22MR. I would have liked one with a wood stock. But I settled for a synthetic stock after searching for 7 months. Another reason I settled on the Marlin is it had iron sights on it. I am sorry to bring the news to gun makers but I will never own a rifle that does not have iron sights. Scopes break, fog up and if you treat the gun rough they are not very accurate.
