Using a marlin 81 as a trainer?



Log in to see fewer ads
Hi all,
I'm wanting to set up a .22lr rifle as a trainer for long distance shooting. Most "builds" I've seen use high end 10/22s. I am about to get a marlin 81 for free. Would this be suitable for a trainer? With the right optics and ammo could I achieve 1 moa with it otherwise stock? If not is there anything I could do to the rifle to achieve 1 moa accuracy? I would prefer to use the 81 over buying another rifle but I am dead set on having a rifle for this purpose.

Thanks for any input!

Sir you will never know until you try...would I do it...Heck yes I would...Marlin can be very accurate rifle. if nothing else it will be a stepping stone for things to come. When you have to rely on factory loaded ammunition you have to try as many different brands to see what your rifle works best with.

Good luck on your quest.
