Re: Ruger 10/22 vs Marlin 60
i have had several of each gun... they are both fairly accurate, the ruger's werent as reliable as the marlin though, the marlin wasnt near as simple to clean but i managed. the ruger however felt better on my shoulder. the comb on a marlin is a tad too high for my without a scope. one thing i like about the marlin is the tube magazine, but the ruger's magazine is faster to switch out when you're out of ammo and need more quick... lets say when you see that last fat squirrel posing for you. i've had 3 rugers and all of them would fail to eject 1 out of 75 to 100 rounds. the marlins however worked well as long as they had lubrication... even pretty dirty. exept i did have one marlin that jammed consistantly due to needing a relpacement feed ramp. the ruger will hold its value better i think than the marlin.. but the marlin comes with a heckova warranty. 5 years. so if you're gonna wear it out quick you cant go wrong with that.
