The Marlins are on sale at Turners or Big 5 regularly for $110-150. Tough to beat that deal.

Yeah, I would just get a new Marlin 795, although it's not a wood stock.

I ended up buying the Ruger 10/22 but there are many good 22 rifles. The 10/22 did come with wood stock and I love my tri-mags giving me 30 shots with a very easy and quick change. I actually have two tri-mags set up, so that when I go to the range I already have 60 shots ready. As stated earlier, good buys are often the norm at Turners or Big 5.

Since the Marlin 795 was my first rifle purchase, looking back, after completing the NRA Basic Rifle course, I wish I bought this:

The CZ 455 American Combo Package is now available from CZ-USA. The package features the new CZ 455 in .22LR and a .17 HMR barrel along with everything you need to make the caliber change.The CZ 455 eliminates the need to spend the extra expense on a second rifle when you want to add another quality shooter to your rimfire battery.

The Marlin 795's (semi) are always on sale in the mid-$100 range. My Marlin XT-22 (bolt) was a few dollars over $200. Ruger 10/22's are nice, but they are in the mid to upper-$200 range.

I have a 1022, it was my firt gun purchase and I think it's great. But I've also shot the Marlin, and if you can live with the fact that it will never have near the number of after market goodies that the Ruger has, it is a fine alternate choice. It is not only cheap - but a great value. And to me, out the box, it has a better trigger.

Stock 10/22 for $200 delivered through Buds Gun Shop online. Can't beat that.

^ I'm about to purchase the 10/22 from Buds myself. 208 shipped to my FFL + 60 (fees and DROS). The number of aftermarket parts was what really helped make my decision. Going to build a cheap little sniper rifle :)

Heck yeah, and I'm going to build an m1 carbine replica. Someone else will build a tacticool and another person will build a bull barrel laminate thumb stock distance rifle. The beauty of the 10/22! Although I would be happy owning a Marlin 60 or 795 if I were lucky to have one.

Also I own one from the early 90's that's stock as a rock. Beautiful in its way.

I have a Marlin bolt action that is an excellent rifle for small varmint shooting although it's a bit under powered unless you use CCI stingers. This is under the assumption the range is within 100 yards

Perhaps you can explain....What kind of varmints are you shooting???? If your after prarie dog then you need more like a Remington 223 round that'll reach out past couple hundred yards.

10/22 was the first rifle I bought.
Now a I own a few variants to go with my Winchester bolt model 72 and my CZ 452 bolt.
Very reliable rifle many aftermarket parts you can spend alot of money tricking it out. I have a fluted SS 920 barrel and laminated wood stock for one of them.
Happy Shooting

I have 2 CZ 452's and I love them both. You'll spend more for them but they're ridiculously accurate.

SPOT ON :)
My first rifle was a CZ 452 Varmint in .17HMR

I now have 4 CZ's in my safe and Im only 20 years old :eek::43:

Go with a CZ, sure you pay more, but you get so much more

+1 on this. I got a CZ 452 Scout Youth to start my kids with. Can use single shot until they get it down, 5 shot or ten shot magazines. But I love shooting it too!

Gentlemen, the only issue with recommending the CZ 452, is that for adults, other than the left handed model, they are discontinued.

That is why I recommend the CZ 455 American Combo.

While David you are correct, in that CZ is replacing the 452 line with the newer 455 line there are still 452's to be had

Check out Whittakerguns.com> then New Rimfire>Style,American 16",Varmints,Full Stocks,Trainers,Ultra Lux

But yes I agree, if you want a 452 series, the sooner the better

as others stated if you dont care for the HUGE aftermarket the 10/22 by Ruger has then go with the Marlin. I prefer the 10/22 because of all the things one can do with it

tacticool, bench shooter, run & gun plinker......so many options:D

Yeah, what this guy said. I remember I bought the 10/22 as my first rifle ever last September. It does everything I want it to, but I kind of kick myself for not getting a 795 only because the out-of-box accuracy is better and because I didn't realize I'd be so hesitant about spending money on the various 10/22 upgrades (was going to throw on Tech Sights, a sling, and maybe a stock change since I got the synthetic).

I guess the question you also want to ask yourself is if you or your son want to exploit the hell out of aftermarket parts for the 10/22.

Also, I didn't see if anyone mentioned it here, but if you get a 10/22, see if you can get one with a metal receiver.
