Marlin 925r .22 any good?



Log in to see fewer ads
Im in the market for a cheap priced .22 LR bolt action. I had my eye on the marlin and can get it for about 125-160 bux. Was wonder if there is anything better for the price and if so what? I wont be using this for hunting just something to take to the range and shoot cheap and have fun with it. You can say it will be my beater rifle

In my opinion they are great rifles for the kind of use you intend. They tend to be pretty accurate out of the box, and with anything close to reasonable care you will never wear it out. The plastic stock is a turn off to many people. If that's the case with you Marlin sells a very nice looking laminated wood stock for a pretty reasonable price. I have a 925 with a Mueller APV mounted on it. It's one of my favorite fun guns/small varmint killers.

That stock doesnt bother me much. Of course id love to get it with a laminated thumbhole but its gonna be a fun gun. I have a sweet shooting savage 93 BTVSS in 17hmr when i need a rimfire to get down to business. Im gonna go and pick up the marlin tomorrow and see how it is Thanks for the reply!

Nothing better for the price. Go for it.

Marlins are good rifles, however, if you can still find a Charles Daly Superior II .22 LR rifle for a good price, go for that.

These sometimes sell for $140 or so and are real walnut, have adjustable triggers and very nice bluing. They shoot extremely well, too. Except for the stock, they are the same rifle as the $350 Remington Model 5.

CDNN has them:



You have to order by phone: 800-588-9500. I have bought from them before with no problems.
