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!
