Author and host of the hit OUTDOOR CHANNEL show SHOOTING GALLERY spouts off...
Regarding your post about the new Ruger 10-22: I think you may want to check your facts. The Ruger 10-22 is not the most popular 22 in history as I believe the Marlin Model 60 beats it by a bunch of units sold.
Based on published stats, you are right and I am wrong. The Marlin Model 60 is a fine little rifle for introducing young people to shooting. That said, thre Model 60 has never gone beyond that niche.mb
Eh? Awful lot of folks use a Marlin 60 as knockabout/iron sight/truck gun. I love mine and am gonna buy a spare one of these days.The conventional rap is that while you can, with enough $$$, accessorize your 10/22 into an uber rimfire sniper race gun (or an ersatz AR, as we learn this week), still, the Marlin 60 is a more precise rifle out of the box, and it costs less than the 10/22 to boot.
Perhaps none of the aftermarketeers have ventured into the Model 60 arena. Could be done, methinks. I'd surely look long and hard at one tricked out to resemble a Garand, but I'm unorthodox that way.
Never had a Marlin Model 60...have a Winchester 190 from way back when, whch can only be disassembled with 2 friends and a pet monkey. I don't think the 10/22 gives up anything in the way of accuracy to the Marlin...mb
Im gonna make a Krinker Plinker out of a 10-22 sometime this year. Ive been thinking about it for some time..I just gotta get off my butt and do it.I'm surprised you haven't made a Krinker Plinker Michael.
I just can't warm up to a tubular mag 22.Never had one that worked right.
