Re: Ruger 10/22 vs Marlin 60
Just because there are more Marlins out there doesn't mean they are better. Under that assumption we can assume Chevy Chevettes are better than a Ford GT40 or Pintos are better than Teslas.
My whole family hunts and while you will find a high diversity of gun types in the hands of various uncles and cousins you won't find a Marlin. That is one .22 that I have never seen in the hands of my relatives or mine. Like buying beer in that white can with the label in big black letters that says BEER. Not good stuff.
The reason their aren't many aftermarket stuff for Marlins....same reason their aren't a ton of aftermarket stuff for Pintos.
