As as been mentioned, I don' t know why you wouldn' t want a Ruger 10-22... best .22 LR for the money. But I have a Marlin Model 90 that has been a good rifle... accurate and never jammed yet. I keep it clean and use only high quality jacketed ammo and that helps the dependablility a lot.

One of the strongest points of the Ruger is how you can accessorize it.

Get the 10/22. Our Marlins (bolt and semi) are more accurate if thrown.

Strobe:

Are your Marlin' s barrels bent? Exactly how far can you throw them?

They sure shoot like they are bent. All the dust they have been collecting would probably ruin the aerodynamics.

Just depends on what you are going to hunt with it. Rabbit hunting with a 10/22 or Marlin 93 lever is hard to beat and squirrel hunting with a CZ bolt is hard to beat.

I say get what fits you best. We' re not talking a custom rifle here. Most .22 caliber rifles will serve you just fine for what you can use them for. The Ruger 10/22 is easy to get aftermarket parts for. But why would you want a 300.00 .22 ?(after adding a few accesories) If you just want something to " look cool" . If you want an expensive, custom and very accurate 22 then buy a Kimber or a Cooper. And there is nothing wrong with the Marlins, they are not the largest gun maker in America for nothing. They sell more 22' s than most of the others combined.
