I am on the market for an new .22 semi-auto rifle. I owned a marlin 60 when I was a kid and it shot very accurate but I always hated the tube magazine. I traded it for a new Ruger 10/22 Carbine (short barrel 16.5 inch) and lost accuracy. I love the 10/22 action but want accuracy, so I was wondering if I may have just gotten a lemon, or if maybe the regular 10/22 barrel(18.5 inch) is a lot more accurate. Can anyone help me with my decision? Thanks!
