If you have a Marlin 39A - I would love to hear about your experience with it. I am a lever action freak, and always loved shooting my uncle's Marlin. My only 22 rifle today is a CZ 452 Ultra Lux. FANTASTIC accurate rifle, 29" barrel, just great. But... it's a right handed bolt and I'm left handed - never really got that accustomed to it, and it's the ONLY bolt rifle I have (rest are levers or semi autos). Preparing for a gunshow weekend, I am considering selling the CZ. I am mainly interested in a Marlin 39A, or potentially a Ruger 10/22 Target. The Ruger would need a scope which would bring the cost almost equal with the Marlin. Intended purpose for both is purely plinking and occasional groundhog/pest control. So, I ask you, that if you have one of these rifles - please share your experiences (accuracy, reliability, ammo compatibility, etc.) Thanks.
