There are no "Wal-Mart" specials as far as cheaper parts are concerned. Wal-Mart just buys so stinking many of them that they get a volume discount.

Seems like the main reason most people buy a 1022 is just so they can fix it up. My wife's uncle has an all original 1022 from way back. No custom parts. It's a nice little rifle, but the Marlin is just a whole lot nicer. Probably why there are so few custom parts for the model 60. Plus you don't have to worry about losing the magazine!

Me. I still like the old-school squirrels on my old Glennie.

Another vote for 10/22... I have a stainless one, maybe 15 years old. I like the La Brea Tar Pit analogy! Added folding synth stock, see through scope mounts, scope, sling, Harris bipod, various capacity mags. I remember buying it in Florida on a business trip, because California had passed the stupid waiting period law for long guns. Gee, that's really worked well....



It doesn't get much use since I got into AGs, but I used to be able to sling it over my back folded up, while I carried the 12 ga. at the ready in the field for quail. Great for long range jacks, or ground squirrels. Still a fun little gun and a decent shooter.

10/22 are nice rifles and can be mad to be tack drivers and are limitless on mods
if you want a bolt gun thats deadly accurate try a marlin mod 25N
i have one and it is the most accurate 22 ive shot open sites 50 yards hits nickles 9 outta 10 shots put a scope on it less than dime sized groups
my buddy had one also his was just as deadly

My favorite hunt is squirrels and my favorite gun is the 1022. Some need a bit of trigger work but mine is just fine. It is a a head shooter for sure on tree rats. Can shoot the center out of a nickle size target at 25 yards and 5o yards. Sort of depends on what you want to shoot? At 100 yards I would not be afraid to put it up against most 22's. A good bolt action such as a CZ or so will probably be better for longer ranges. I have a metal framed stock and shroud and flash suppressor on the gun but the rest is stock. easy to work on and a great hunting gun as it is light weight and a good scope will bring those tree rat down from the tallest tree. Mine is about 6 years old and never misses a lick. Great gun in the medium price range. This is one gun I will always keep!!

Your model 60 is still a fine gun and there are a few tricks to make it shoot better. Check out Rimfirecentral.com. They can steer you straight. The WalMart Specials were actually special runs that WalMart had Ruger make up for them. One, which I kick myself for passing on, was a black/gray laminated stainless Mannlicher or full-stock. Another was a stainless sporter but with a 22" barrel and beech instead of walnut stock. I have the stock on mine and it looks good. They might have had some laminated carbines, too. Guts are still the same.
