I have to agree. I used my model 60 for years for hunting but traded it off for a Ruger 10/22. Even after adding a bull barrel and a decent scope, I still cant seem to match the accuracy of my $69 Marlin.

Nice. We've got a 19-2 and it's a keeper.

I agree with you also, I have both, my two Marlin Model 60's are older pieces, one well used, one less so, but I love them both so much more than the new stainless Ruger 10-22 \I got last year. If I could have only one, I would definatley take the Model 60 also.

I really enjoy this Ruger Single Six. 22LR, with 22 Magnum cylinder. It's a hoot shooting at a ram swinger at 50 yds with it... good thing 22LR is cheap.

I don't own a Contender yet, but I do own the .22/.22 Mag, but could not find a pic. Here is my Single Six in polished stainless .32 H&R Magnum no longer made. Oh wait this violates the rimfire thing.

My friend has an old High Standard Durango .22 revolver. It has a swing out cylinder, very easy to use pistol.

Boy howdy I wish Ruger'd do that with their Single Six convertible. Such a PIA to remove little 22 empties one at a time.

With the Durango or 999 you can go through a half-brick faster than a bag of chips. And that's even with putting the empty brass into a bag rather than the ground.

I should go dust some of mine off....KKW, Mauser ES430 (pre-war), Mossberg 46M (two) and a Stevens 416.

I love a good 22!

I've got a few I'd like to show off.

Ruger 10/22, Mine's special because my wife gave it to me for a wedding present.



Browning Buckmark Camo Camper, 5 1/2" bull barrel




Marlin 39A and Colt Single Action Frontier Scout with 4 3/4" barrel.


My Dad bought both of those sometime back in the 50's I think. I've shot a lot of rounds out of them over the years. Good times.

More of the Colt.






And this one I've never shot. Dad always said it was worn out and too dangerous to shoot. It's a bit rare I think.
Winchester Thumb Trigger Model.



No conventional trigger, just a small lever you push down to release the firing pin.



And here it is cocked.




The old thing was my Grandfathers (or Great Grandfathers) and is really beat up thanks to all the kids who shot it over the years.

I've never been into punching holes in paper targets, but give me a pocket full of .22 cartridges, some empty pop cans and I'm a happy camper.

Jim
