Every Pawnshop near me has a tube fed Model 60, but most are shot out. Wal-Mart carries new ones, so does Academy and Atwood's. BassPro carries them. They are all over and sell all the time.

Now, the Marlin tube fed bolt guns are a harder find. But, my wife likes them so I keep my eyes open.

I like the Ruger platform, but I have several dozen since the early 80's. Now, my son has started doing the Mossberg line, he likes them, he is an adult, so I am learning the idiosyncrasies of that platform also.

Every pawn shop around here doesnt have one.

I know I can buy one new....was looking for a used one.

Point stands....if tube fed bolt actions sold better, more companies would make them, and gun shops would stock them.

Try finding a new tube fed Marlin XT ...they're sold out everywhere. It's not that gun shops don't stock them, they just can't keep them ! That's also why 781/783, 881/883, and the 981/983 are also selling used for top dollar.

Obviously people realize how accurate, and reliable they are. Marlin needs to get their head out of their...well, you get my point. They need to build more of them, up the production.

Academy used to have about 10 Marlin 22LRs on their website. They still have 8, but they're just different stock permutations of the same three models.

Turns out Marlin's online chat feature actually works! I forgot to ask about the XT-22TSR, oops--if anyone else does, could you let us know what they said?

Looks like they still plan on making more XT-22TRs in a few months. I wonder how the XT-22 compares to the 881, I do like a wider trigger blade and really liked the adjustable trigger in my XL7.

@Signalman--I've seen your XT-22TR and your 883, when you've got time could you take some photos comparing the two actions and trigger mechanisms? I'd love to see both side by side to see how much (or how little) has changed. Thanks!

Two spotted

I was visiting my father-in-law and stopped into a (sorta) LGS a few days ago that had two new Marlin tube fed XT-22's, both LR's, one blued at $220, and one stainless at $280. He's only open Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. I'll send contact info by PM if anyone desires.

After fooling with barrels and such on several older and newer Marlin bolt actions....

The chambers on the "Old" marlins tend to be a little tighter than on the new ones - probably because they now have to plan for the regular use of stingers and velocitors.. Otherwise the barrel internal dimensions are basically the same on the ones I have checked.

The rest of the actions on the new XT series are a better design with several upgrades over the older designs... They have a better trigger, a faster lock time, and 2 action screws to keep things from shifting around in the stock. You can also get new factory parts for them if needed...

This similar to my initial impressions of the XT-22 line versus the older Marlins, but I still need to add an XT-22 to my collection so I can really break them down side by side and get into the details of what changed and why. The ones I've handled appear to borrow some (in my view) superior features from the Savage Mark I/Mark II, while retaining a lot of distinctively Marlin traits. The only thing I like better about the old Marlin 81s is that they have a round firing pin and solid extractors, rather than the stamped firing pin and spring steel extractors the 881 (maybe it started with the 781, I'm not sure) on forward have.

I decided to check in with Marlin and see where the XT-22T's are on the production schedule. About five weeks ago (see my post further up the thread) I was told that they were scheduled for production late this summer, whatever that means. (Now? August? Early September?)

But today I was told that neither the XT-22TR nor the XT-22TSR are on the production schedule. This means that either they've already made them, or they aren't planning on it anymore I've checked everywhere and can't find one in stock even at distributors, so who knows.
