A Marlin XT-22

Went to Academy to look over a Savage Mark II and the Marlin.

They were out of the Savage, but the Marlin look like a decent rifle, same price.

Has a similar trigger as the Savage too.

I bet it can shoot ink blots at 100 yda.

WTF is a blot action?

I prefer the one made by Rorschach.

I bought the threaded barrel version a year or so ago and put on a Nikon ProStaff Rimfire Riflescope. Pretty damn accurate and fun to shoot IMO. Planning on getting a can one day.

You won't regret it. A bolt action 22 with a can is the most fun you can have with your pants on. I was grinning for 24 hours straight after i fired mine.

Just like elections, posting has consequences.



This place would make most English teachers look tolerant.


Nice gun. Now get it threaded and suppressed.

Academy had Black Friday set up right.

They had the Black Friday sale guns being sold in a different part of the store.

I walked up to the gun counter and was helped immediately, in and out in 15 minutes or so.

I glad they did it this way so people wanting to buy regular priced guns aren't in line behind all the bargain shoppers.

I"ve got the tube version. Shoots shorts, longs andlong rifles. Holds 17 LR and I think 20 something shorts. I love it.

I am taking it to the range Sunday morning to sight in, put a Bushnell scope on it.

I still have the Glenfield 25 (Made by Marlin.) my father bought for me over forty years ago. Its still a very accurate rifle. Enjoy your new Marlin for many, many more years.

Suppressed bolt action .22's are the awesome

Got one of them last summer. Mine's got the threaded barrel and no iron sights.

Great groups, fun to shoot. Hell on skunks.

I picked up a cheap Bushnell scope at Walmart.

I figure I am not taking 800 yard shots with this thing, no recoil to speak of, not going to drop a ton of money on a scope for a .22

I'm fucking sick of dinging the scope and it going all out of whack.

A few more misses and I figure I might be pissed enough to throw money at the issue. I don't guess Larue is making any mounts that clamp onto a rimfire dovetail though.

Speaking of the Marlin XT series, just what size hex wrench is needed to get the action out of the stock? None of mine seem to fit.

The 925 is basically the same as the XT, right? Except for the trigger?

One of my marlin 60's has a custom picatinny rail where the rimfire dovetail was milled flat. I have my scope on a larue mount now.

I think my smith did it for $75 plus parts. He even bead blasted the rail to match the receiver.

Here are pics before the LT mount. I have since put it away in the original box as a gift for my newborn son when he is of age to shoot it. Was it worth it on a $200 gun? Yes! The mount in this pic is the Leupold Mark AR steel rings that I spraypainted like a schmoe. The LT mount was so that I could move between a low magnification scope and high magnification bench rest scope.

Son? First I've heard about it. Congratulations!

I think my Savage might follow right along with yours. It's a good rifle other than the mount. Nothing proud, just a good rifle.

I think the actions and triggers are the all but identical to the savage but the Marlin has a better stock and heavier model 60 style barrel . I believe they share the same mag as the semi auto 795. Good choice.

13-14 years ago I had a 22lr Marlin with the Micro-grooves very fine shooting rifle, being the idiot I am I sold it. I picked up a 17HMR Marlin its kind of okay the bullet drift in a breeze sucks but expansion is cool. I have 2 bolt actions now in rimfire, I love the remington 510 Targetmaster paid $50 for it, what a neat rifle.

I was considering getting that one, but mag and parts availability is a question and after transfer fees, shipping, etc I am close to the cost of a new Savage or Marlin.

If they were $50 then no question, I would get the M1969.

That would be a tube fed 151M. My 151M is one heck of a shooter.

They were made from 1946-1958 depending on the model which had a, b, and c suffixes in a ( ) after the M. Mine is a plain M ('46-'47).





I bought a Marlin like the OP's at a local flea market this past Summer but traded it for a 1955 Remington Fieldmaster pump. I just did not care for the plastic stock that much. That said it was a fine shooter at 50 yards. Sorta surprised me. Meh...What can I say....I'm just a wood and blued steel type of guy.

CZ 452 Varmint, with a brookes trigger kit. Really nice little gun. I had mine as a practice piece for my .308. When I sold the .308, I nearly sold the CZ, but took it to the range and after watching the rounds go downrange through a high mag scope it went back into the safe.....

I love messing with the old Mossbergs. Here is a 42 MB that Bubba Brit made a sporter out of (I redid it) and he had threaded (1/2" X 20 tpi) for a supressor. I put a adaptor to 1/2"X28 on it.

The scope mount is a Brit copy of the old Weaver side mounts. The great thing about these is that you can adjust the trigger down to around 2.5 pounds. Even with the old 3/4" scope on it it's a tack driver.
