Bought my 99 M1 circa 1966 for squirrel hunting...paid about $45 for it. The Ruger 10/22 was a fairly new rifle back then. LOL, bought the Marlin as it was about $6 less and I had doubts about the rotary magazine in the Ruger.

Anyway, it proved to be a darn good squirrel hunting rifle with a 3-8x32 Bushnell banner scope on it. Loved to find a squirrel peeking around a tree trunk or limb at me....just put the crosshairs on it head, lots of between the eyes kills with the scoped M1. Occassionally shoot the 99 M1 at the range and it still is a pretty accurate rifle for me.
