This is true. The 10/22 has so many accessories nobody has a clue how many are available - one catalog alone can contain hundreds.
UPDATE - The Marlin 925 shoots as well as the Marlin 880. I also use the Model 60 mentioned and in my opinion it is a better quality 22LR semi-auto than the Ruger 10-22 though both feel short for me - they're both carbine style which are short by design. One thing I liked MUCH better about the Model 60 is when the magazine, in this case it was a tube, empties the bolt stays open. When it empties on the 10-22 the bolt is closed.
