What's everyone's favorite. 22?
Ammo or gun model?
Marlin Model 60.
Ruger 10/22 is a close 2nd
That's what I hear a lot. Why?
They are both reliable and accurate with a wide variety of ammo. Its as simple as that for me.
My Model 60 has been my go to .22 hunting and range rifle for many years and it has never let me down.
The 10/22 also has the benefit of an endless supply of aftermerket parts to configure it however you desire to. Want a custome target rifle or a tacticool plinker? You can do it with that platform.
The 60 is tube fed, as opposed to the 795 with a magazine. Is there advantages/disadvantages to either, or just a matter of preference?
After using both for several years, it's kind of a draw.
Reloading a magazine fed gun is only faster if you already have the magazines filled.
Only real advantage to a magazine is that you can buy bigger ones, with the tube you are pretty much stuck with what you have.
Browning BL 22
Savage MK II FV-SR
Marlin Model 60
In that order.
Another vote for the Marlin(s) ...
I own a Glenfield Marlin Model 60 Semi-Automatic...and a Marlin Model 80C Bolt Action.
My .22 pistol is a Browning Buckmark...
Marlin 882. Its . 22Mag, if that counts.
Well it was my Savage Mk2 FV-SR until I bought the Henry.
I love my 10/22. It was the first .22 rifle I ever bought. Actually the only one. Bought it new in 1973.
Of course it does, because just adding the word MAG or Magnum makes things deader faster.
Lovin' this thread....
The Silver Boy .22 mag just went on sale at Davidsons.
I'm a remington guy.......... Pretty fond of my 513T. I'll post some pics once I can get on photobucket. It's down for some reason.
Mossberg 702 Plinkster. So good I bought two of them. Take care. Tom Worthington
JC Higgins bolt action, 10 shot magazine.
First real gun I ever bought.
Lost it doing "stupid stuff" as a kid.
Found its twin in a friends gun store a few years back. Bought it on the spot.
Best shooter, my Savage MKII
