I love Marlin 22's. They are relatively cheap, easy to work on and accurate enough for me to generally hit where I'm aiming at reasonable distances. I read on other sites: "I shoot 1 ragged hole at 100 yds with my CZ and Elay" Sorry, but with a $600+ rifle, $400+ optic, $200+ bench rest and $200+/brick ammo - you better. "I love my 10/22, most accurate $200 rifle out there" Yeah, after a new barrel, new springs, trigger, new extractor, Boyd stock and bolt work. What are you left with? The 10/22 receiver and magazine? I'll take any of my Marlin rifles and CCI standard velocity everyday and twice on Sunday.
