    thanks

    Sounds to me like you need a Ruger 10-22. There is just about every accessory that you can think of for those guns. And just as they come from the factory they are great little guns.

    There is even a device that takes two of the barreled actions and basically turns them into a Gatling gun!

    You are right. There is never any sense in getting rid of any gun. I always just add now. Over the past 40 years I got rid of several. Wish I had most of them back now!

    And, yes I am serious about the 10-22 Gatling gun. The two barreled actions mount on the device so the magazines stick out to the side. With two 50 round magazines, you could spit out 100 rounds in short order. And since you have to keep turning the crank, it is not classed as an automatic weapon and no special license or permit is required.

    All is not lost, your Marlin 60 will shoot circles around a 10/22, until you drop about $250 on the Ruger. Enjoy your Marlin while you save up for your Ruger.

    I agree 100%. The Marlin 60 is a much better platform. Simply scope it and enjoy.

    hold the phone there a minute, sparky...Marlins have LOTS of accessories.

    But never turn someone towards a product where aftermarket suppliers have made it possible to make a BETTER weapon OUT OF PARTS than what is made by the MFR. Especially the most imprecise out-of-the-box rifle known to mankind, the Ruger 10/22. The reason there are so many aftermarket parts producers for the 10/22 is because IT REQUIRES THEM!!!

    With a Marlin, all you generally need is a quick trigger job & bolt polishing...and making sure your ejector wire is in the proper position to outshoot and outperform CZ's.

    Marlin Accessories, you ask? Here's some.
    Marlin 60/795 Accessories

    And that is by no means all. TONS of stuff out there, for those that take the time to look.

    AND...every stock that you can stick a 10/22 in, can be modded to fit a Marlin 795 or 60.

    Don't listen to those Ruger guys. Your marlin has the classic lines of the past. And I can prove it!

    The RUGER guys are jealous because Marlin came out with the better rifle FIRST!!

    The M-60 has been outselling the Ruger since the Ruger 10/22 came along.
    12 million Model 60 Marlins can't be wrong!!!

    Heck, the model 70/795 is almost at the 10/22 level...that $25 rebate has been getting more & more folks to buy model 795's all over the nation!!!

    And I'm working on getting a few MFR's to make hi-cap mags for the 70P/795 :D SOMEBODY is gonna make a LOTTA MONEY!!!

    The marlin guys are jealous that it's an extensive undertaking to get a really good trigger on a marlin-not so for the Ruger. You're pretty well stuck with what you get out of box unless you really know what you're doing with the marlin. I could keep going but the marlin fanboys are worse than glock fanboys and wouldn't understand anyway.:rolleyes: The marlin is not better-that's just your opinion-mine differs. I agree they usually shoot well out of box but that's all you have. Very few products are on the market to actually make marlins more accurate. To say the marlin is better is just silly.

    See now, Marlin 60s are so good out of the box, the only accessory a feller could put on it is a scope.

    I love my 60. (its even threaded)

    (from the quote: remove the could and insert "needs to")


    ATI makes a nice composite stock for it, Muzzlelite make one too.
    My trigger was heavy, but I have reworked it to a nice 3.5#.
    I can put 10 rds in a nickel @ 50 yards all day long, with cci blazer ammo.
    At 100 yards, 1.75" all day. That is with the stock barrel, I'd like to see a stock 10/22 do those numbers, it won't happen. I have had them, shot them, other customers at my range could not do it either. I show them how my 60 shoots, and then I sell them an aftermarket barrel and stock kit. Yep, 10/22 have more accy. available, and thankfully so, because they aren't that accurate when they are stock.

    It's kind of like buying a really cool looking Mustang, Camaro or Charger with a V-6. Dam thing looks killer, but if you want the thing to go fast, open your pocketbook.

    Is this still true SINCE the inception of the 10/22 though? Sure, there are 11million+ 60's out there, but how many since the 10/22 started, and how many 10/22's since then as well? Just asking cause I've heard the statement so many times now that people often only look at overall sales, and dont consider one being so much older than the other.

    Now by me making this statement, please don't cast me as a fanboy or anything, just as one that likes to make clear distinction of fact. Thanks!

    My Marlin trigger is fine, as is the accuracy. It also eats subsonic 40gr, 38gr, 30gr high velocity and is accurate with them all.
    A young guy I shoot w/ bought a 10/22, I never said a word. He replaced the stock, Barrel, bolt, and when he was all done all that was left of the original rifle was the receiver. He had spent over $900.00. We went shooting. I still outshot him with my base Marlin 60. $130.00 total including scope and a carbine sling. We won't even go into the ammo issues he has. He was given a Winchester 190 from his Dad, it did not fire and was filthy. After cleaning and fixing the trigger(parts were installed backwards), that rifle outshot his 10/22 also. Now he shoots the 190 and gave the 10/22 to his wife. He tried my sons 190 w/ a 4x32 Bushnell rimfire scope and topped his w/ the 3-9x32mm version, $39.00. It does not matter what auto .22 we compare the 10/22 too, it is just a substandard package out of the box. Should we now talk about the gas block on the Mini 14 and what needs to be done to accurize it? Ruger Qaulity???? oximoron!

    Anyone with a GED could turn a standard Marlin trigger into a Precision Adjustable Target Trigger in less than 30 minutes.
    All it takes is a drill press, a 8/32 tap, & an 8/32 setscrew.
    [​IMG]
    Add in two spring changes, and the trigger fires cleanly at 2 & 1/2 to 3 pounds.



    And you honestly don't need anything to make them more accurate, the 60 & 795 are sub-MOA capable right out of the box, and ya sure can't say that about a Ruger. The stock Micro-groove barrels are on par with the Green Mountain Bull Barrels for the Rugers. Some of us have taken the time to pillar bed a few 60's & 70/795's...but for most, it's not neccesary.

    ---

    ICU, the Marlin 60 is only 4 years older. Began production in 1960 :)

    The 795 was made starting in 1997, the 70HC (early 795) & 70P (Papoose) began in 1986. They're already catching up to the 10/22 at an amazing rate.

    The only thing they don't have is high-capacity mags for the 795/70P due to the changes made in them when Slick Willie instituted his gun ban...Ramline USED to make a 25-round banana mag, but they've not made them since the Clinton Gun Ban...hopefully some bright young magazine MFR will catch on to the fact of 3.2 million Marlin 795/70P rifles that need high-cap mags. :D

    Thanks Shrek, I was under the impression that the 'base models' of the 60 were being included with those numbers, dating way back (which i see now would only have been 1959 anyway - doh!), and for some reason had thought the 10/22 to have been around only since the mid-80's. Seem to have mixed up my information there somewhere, :confused: thanks for clearing that up!

    I almost went with the 795 myself, tossing between that and the Savage 64 on sale, but couldn't pass up the $75 used 60 that I found. If I was going New though, and after I finally decided semi and .22 (as opposed to the bolt and .17 options I was considering) it was definitely between the 795 and the Savage 64 - then I found the 64 priced at $125 w/scope and all but cast out the 795. All said and done, so far, I'm very happy in the decision I came to with the used 60.
