Default We are still comparing the Ruger American to the Marlin

My Son after he gets his Ruger Hawkeye in 30-06 wants to buy a Rifle in 223 for varmits. We liked the Ruger American but I still like the Marlin XL7 in 30-06, and they are now offering it in 223. The new rifle is now offered with a 22 inch barrel in their short action. If he doesn't go with the Marlin for the 223 the Ruger American is his second choice. I didn't really like the way the mag locking into the Ruger American. The bolt was very smooth and the trigger felt real good.

GFD2 I like your plans too. Sometimes your best plans get way out of control.. Then you need a bigger safe or less kids or a very understanding wife!

Not 100% sure of this but pretty close Not all barrels are outsourced
only some of the 10/22's are pretty sure all the rest are made by ruger
