Marlin 880SQ .22 LR

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The 880SQ, $294 street price, is a composite-stock gun suitable for rough field work. It could also be used for a young shooter or as a plinker because it is small and accurate enough, but other problems on the gun should discourage you from buying it, we feel.

The Marlin's trigger action is heavy, and its narrow surface is serrated, neither of which is overly comfortable. The synthetic stock is slick at the grip as well, which doesn't help the shooter control the muzzle heavy gun.
