Marlin XT 22RZ 70763 22 LR

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The Marlin is delivered without sights. It has the advantage of a barrel threaded for suppressor use. The Marlin is accurate for the price, more accurate than the economy grade Savage rifle, but not as accurate as the two more expensive rifles tested. The Marlin is a credible rifle.

The cocking bolt shows a red ring (arrow) when the rifle is cocked and ready to fire. The safety is mounted on the receiver and operates in the same manner as the Savage, forward for Fire and to the rear for Safe.
The Marlin trigger allowed us to set it for a 2.5-pound let off. The rifle is marked to chamber 22 LR only, so of course we tested the rifle with 22 Short cartridges and found they would not feed.
The grip area had texturing that provided a sure grip on the rifle.
The XT comes with a threaded barrel, which gives it a big leg up if you plan to add a suppressor. This is a smart feature to add.
