As always, Buds was fast with shipping/packing, and got mine after their little holiday break...hey, it was Christmas, so understand a slightly longer wait than normal..... When I went to pick up from my FFL, and opened the mint boxing, I did notice a tiny,tiny small brown spot in the gun\'s plastic wrap at the barrel end. I found a tiny bit of rust starting on the end of the barrel, as well as on a flat spot on the end of the bolt. Barely noticeable, but still...first time I have ever encountered this, with a new firearm. FLL had some gun cleaning supplies around, and this wiped right off/cleaned right up... so was not worth the trouble for a return, which am sure Bud\'s would have done in a hurry, if I asked. Doing the paperwork, the FFL stated that the gun didn\'t directly come from Buds, but was from some outfit out of Minnesota and what he had to put on the paperwork. Outside packing box, however...said Buds. He stated due to air freight, it is possible the gun sweated some during it\'s trip to a different climate...I am in the South. As always, I always get the Bud\'s life time warranty on any purchases of firearms, from them. This is going to be my beater gun, throw in the truck and not going to be babied and worrying about dinging, or scratching a nice stock, etc. The gun is very light with the \"plastic\" stock.... which I like and to me handles well. Trigger is nice and crisp. Bolt was a little rough until I gave the gun a good cleaning, which helped...but I think more rounds and use it should clear that up. Over all...am happy. Iron sights were straight, but shot a quite high, so had to adjust them and the white bead on the front was a nice addition. I did notice some \"coloring\" on the brass feed tube, which I supposed it got on there from whatever \"bluing\" that they are doing on these...never seen that before and believe that Remington still needs some work to do on QC. Mounted a scope...but haven\'t had the chance to see what sort of accuracy it has...most of the old Glenfields and Marlin 22\'s I have had in the past, were real tack drivers and were 100% reliable. I am interested in getting the Marlin .22 magnum in tube feed..if Buds can every get them in stock and are at a good price...sorry...I have a .22 sickness...LOL! 4 stars for the little issues I mentioned.

We put about 200 rounds through the gun before the issue. The bolt would action but the cocking knob on the bolt would only go about 1/2 the distance to full cock. It started about every third round but then every round. It would eject the rounds with no issues. We took the gun apart and found that the one of the trigger bolt had came loose (found it laying inside the stock). The other trigger bolt was also completely loose. Also to note the two bolts that hold the stock on was loose too. BEFORE you go shooting TIGHTEN ALL THE BOLTS. The accuracy is great and the action works awesome. Other than having to repair the gun myself, its a fun gun to shoot.

I didn\'t care for this rifle. Sights right out of the box were crooked. Build quality was sub par. Maybe Marlin now has things sorted out but I didn\'t like it and sold it.

This is a good quality .22LR, .22S and .22L rifle that comes with a lot of features for the money. The rifle is tapped from the factory and grooved for 3/8 Dovetail scope ring mounts. The trigger really amazed me, it is a very nice and crisp trigger which can adjusted but comes perfect from factory. Micro rifling makes this a very accurate rifle even without a scope. Compared to other rifles I have used in the past, this just felt like it hit exactly what I wanted 100% of the time. The bolt action is stiff at first but loosens up after about 200 rounds. The tubular magazine can be used to great effect with a Spee-D-Loader # 17, which holds 138 .22LR rounds for a fast reload of the tubular magazine. It may not be as fast as a magazine fed 10/22, but it's faster than hand loading and you don't need to buy any extra magazines. Overall very satisfied with my purchase and recommend this plinker to any one looking for a .22 rifle. Best bang for you buck!

First, I will say Bud\'s did a great job once again, and received my gun in record time. Thanks. The gun itself is perfect for my needs, and is just right for a starter. My only quibble is that Marlin requires a 3.5 mm Allen Wrench to take apart for cleaning/smithing. Of course they didn\'t supply this pennys-to-make tool, and send you on a wild goose chase to find one. This explains the low price. Just be prepared beforehand when purchasing. Shot it the day after I got it, and put roughly 300 rounds of a Federal, Remington, and CCI, without a single glitch! Love this plinker! As long as 22 ammo is available, I\'ll be shooting it every time I go to the range!
