Is ruger 10-22 a rip off of a marlin 60 with some changes Which came first?Can someone link to or post photos of the guts for the marlin ?I had never known of the marlin sixty until today
I have both – I like the Marlin better mainly due to the trouble I have with rotary magazines getting dirty and malfunctoning in my Rugers. Both are good guns, and accurate and easy to shoot. The Marlin has a tube-feed magazine and the Ruger has those rotary magazines. I would not call the Ruger a rip-off of the Marlin. best mqqn

You are watching: Ruger 10/22 vs marlin model 60
Marlin has versions with detachable magazines too. An automatic made for .22LR is a very simple device so there isn”t much mechanism to “rip off”. They are similar in appearance but not that much different from some other brands. The Ruger seems a little bit classier to me but these days also seems overpriced compared to other brands. The Ruger is very popular which probably lead to its current pricing.
The Marlin Model 60 tends to be more accurate out of the box than the standard Ruger 10/22. Both are very good 22 rifles.
I fired a Marlin 60 about 20 years ago. It was a fun little 22, but I didn”t like manipulating things near the barrel to load, and it”s so easy to eat through a brick of 22 between friends on a long, outdoor range day. You also can”t take the magazine out for outdoor ranges that require shooters to unload and lock open when it”s time for everyone to go and get or change their targets.I have two 10/22″s and have been thinking of getting a third for the last 15 years. It”s nice to be able to load a few magazines at a time if you are going to be shooting all day long. The only reliability issues I ever had with the rotary magazine or with the 10/22 in general was:1. Trying fancy target ammo that had really thick wax coating.2. Trying certain HP ammunition3. Trying to install a trigger kit on an older model that had some strange specs in the trigger area (certain year(s) had issues).It”s my understanding that sometimes you get lucky (or unlucky) with the 10/22 for stock accuracy. Is also my understanding that some plinkers do very basic smithing mods to have great accuracy. I went the aftermarket route, and like the variety of accessories available.I don”t think the Marlin has as many options for accessories, but if you aren”t in to that, either should be a fine rifle.
