Really like them both and they seem very accurate and quality built rifles.

the trigger is kind of stiff on at least one of them.
How diff is it to 'lighten the trigger spring?' Is it something a novice can do or do you have to have some gunsmithing knowledge
Take a look at this thread from the RFC Marlin forum.

https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forum...ad.php?t=33044

I tried this on my Marlin 25N and although I ended up using a spring from a mechanical pencil instead of a pen spring, it worked like a champ. Took all of 5 minutes. If you can turn a screwdriver, you can do this.

You may also want to do a search on the Marlin forum on this subject. Very simple, very noticeable improvement on those heavy Marlin triggers.

Tankerdave sir it all depends on how much money you want to spend...what style of rifle you want and what your planning to do with this rifle.

Now for me I have 11x 22 magnums and 5x 17hmr rifles. I have ones that I use when the weather is bad and others that only get shot on Sunday 20 feet from the car and still others that I have full faith in. I am a magnum guy and have not hunting with a 22lr in years...the magnums cover all bases for me.

Most of these rifles are magnums so pick the one you like best and we will talk.









But I will tell you that the one rifle that is the first one out of the safe for any kind of shooting and the one rifle that I have full faith in is the very first one at the top of my pictures...my Marlin 883 in 22mag. If I miss the shot it was me and not the rifle. I go shooting with my older brothers up at Cedarville and they will stop shooting and spot gophers for me to see if they can pick out one to see if I will miss the shot...like only head shots....etc. I get high fives all the time.

My close second rifle is my CZ 452 FS in 17hmr is the next one in line fantastic rifle. So I have my 22mag and 17hmr are one and two out of all my rifles.

I hope this helps.

Signalman since you seem to have slowed up a little lately I think you really need to add a Savage/Anschutz 141m to your inventory. It is an awesome 22mag and my favorite 22mag I have ever had over my HK's, Marlin 783, Single shots, and a couple more through the years that I never cared for. I have never cared for a 22 mag that much but love my 141m..

Grg sir yes I have slowed down a little...but I did get that Marlin VSF last week...but I can't shoot all I have these days...too much shopping going on Thanks for the heads up on the 141M do you have any pictures so I can drool on~I mean look at. My current screen saver is a 527 FS...that I am dragging my feet on...I still have not shot my 527 Varmint in 222 or the Royal in 223.

Loved my Savage BTV in 22wmr.

If I were to buy again, I'd get a CZ455 and extra barrels. 22lr, 17hmr, 22wmr

I like marlins, although I have a good savage rimfire, and a good savage .223...

I look at design, trigger etc... Marlins microgroove barrels are great, savage has the accutrigger... I don't think you would be disappointed in either...

I picked up this 883 stainless with scope used for $279

A few years ago I decided I really needed a 22mag. So of course I ended up with five; a Marlin 883, 783, 782, a Winchester 9422M and a Mossberg 640KS. I sold the 883 to an ex friend who proceeded to flip it. My favorite is the Mossberg which shoots as good as it looks, and it looks really good. I should take a picture.

The Marlins are good shooters and can be had at very good prices. Don't pass up a Chuckster if you run across one.

Surprised by all the non-love for the Savage. I recently picked up a B22 FVSR and for what I paid for it I can not be happier. The rotary mag is great, trigger is sweet and accuracy is more than I expected. Its not my Cooper but it was only a tenth of the price.
