    Thumbs up Marlin Model 305 22 Magnum

    Our shop recently got in five Marlin Model XT-22s in 22 Magnum. I was curious as to the quality of workmanship so I checked each one closely. I appears we either got very lucky or Remlin's QC has gotten better. I'm not crazy about their "tupperware" stocks but, other than that, I couldn't find any flaws. The bores and action were nice and clean. The XT-22s comes with an extra magazine, a real plus. I didn't have any safe way to check trigger pull or how smoothly rounds fed from the magazine.

    305? Marlin? Would that be a Stevens 305? I have been looking them.

    I haven't heard *nearly* as much complaining about the Marlin line, in the last 2 months so maybe things got better. I also heard Marlin stopped putting guns out the door, briefly. I'd *guess* they spent that time yelling at the employees and getting QC under control.
    Costco should sell bullets in those bins, like walnuts. Or you could buy two five gallon buckets of bullets, shrink-wrapped together.

    OOPS! Marlin XT-22, not Stevens 305.

    I ended up buying one last week. I'm impressed with the accuracy and smooth function. As I said initially, I don't like the plastic stock, makes the rifle too light. I plan to fix that with a Boyd's laminate stock real soon.
