Re: whats the best 22 automatic rifle?
Every T/C I've shot has been a real shooter. They have been very accurate for years and years. And I've compared brand new Marlins against brand new Rugers many times and the Marlins always come out on top. But I've seen Ruger's start shooting really well after just a few modifications. They end up costing a lot more than a Marlin though. They should shoot better.
What we need to watch for is that Marlin has really updated their triggers for their bolt action .22's. When they add those triggers to the semi-autos it's going to mean big trouble for Ruger. There will be a really big difference between the two IMO.
