Default I find this odd

I find it odd that people ask other people to sight in their rifles.
the whole point of sighiting in a rifle is to make it accurate to you. As Karl pointed out, in his opinion the scope(s) was(were) too far forward.
who knows if that will be right for the nephew/brother in law???

People should take more pride and interest in their sport............

Karl, exelent write up, thanks for all the info. I too just purchased an XL7 in 30-06 with a 3-9x40 redfield revolution, and can't wait to get to the range to sight it in!!!!!!

Default I also would have liked both of the new owners there..

One of the rifles was a surprise gift for his Brother-in-law. The other was his Nephew's rifle that hadn't been fired, having got it Christmas morning. I did feel responsible having steered his Sister, and my Buddy to those Marlins. I was very satisfied with the performance on the two Marlin XL7s. My Son was shooting his Ruger No 1 in 30-06 and is now mad at himself for not putting rounds through the Marlins while he had a chance. I think you have a quality rifle with your Marlin, I would not feel shortchanged if it was my primary rifle. I try not to be a rifle snob, but I am at times. I like a stock that fits, a quality trigger, a solid action, and a rifle that puts bullets close together if I do my part. The Marlin XL7 meets all those requirements at a very reasonable pricepoint.
