    Marlin Model 60 .22 or a Ruger 10/22. Which would you prefer and why?

  • #2
    Both are reliable, accurate, and durable rifles. I tend to prefer the Ruger simply because it has such a wide array of after market accessories that I can in reality create my own custom. Also I will have the capability of using high capacity magazines. May be a mute point unless you can locate more .22 rimfire ammo where you are located than I can around here.

      Good point ish, but I bought my son a M60 years ago for $90, today about $110 and it raps them rounds out like nobodies business. Can't fancy it up though like you can a 10/22. So that's something to think about.

        The Ruger would be my pick, it feels more like a hunting rifle while the Marlin Model 60 has very little drop of the comb.

        I love my Remington Nylon 66

              10/22 just feels more like a real rifle, plus with a minimum of know how and 200 bucks or so you can make it shoot circles around the Marlin.

                Never used the Marlin, because I liked my first 10/22 so much i never saw any reason to try something different. As mentioned above, the aftermarket options are a definate plus.

                  Love my 10-22. Don't know about Marlins. Go with Ruger!

                    Golfin Sportsman, no you can't shoot circles around them from the factory, I tried and they aren't all that. And durability is the same for half price. Why would you buy something for twice the price and then have to add 200 dollars to make it shoot better?

                        THANK YOU JIM IN MO! somebody that agrees with me a little bit. the M60 is a very nice gun with a very nice trigger. i've shot 10/22's with heavy triggers. i didn't really like it. sure they have all of the aftermarket parts. but wouldn't you rather pay 200 dollars less for a gun that shoots just as good, if not better? BTW! the model 60 Marlin does have aftermarket stuff. you can find tons of stocks for it.

                            I went with Ruger 10/22 because there are more redily available parts for them. The 10/22 is also more accurate and more reliable.

                              If you want to see a real nice 10/22 go to my profile and look at the picture of our coyote gun.
