  2. XT-22TR Bolt Not Remaining Cocked

    Evening gents, I`ve been reading threads on this forum for about 5 years now, but haven`t joined until now. I haven`t had a need to, as my XT-22TR rimfire hasn`t had a problem until now. Let me give you some backround. This rifle is my first gun; I`ve had it nigh on 5 years now and have...

  5. First Rifle XT-22RO, magazine question

    Team Bolt Action Rimfire
    Trying to do my own research but coming up partially empty handed. Wanted to know if anyone has any experience with Promag's 25rd magazine for the 795 on their xt-22 bolt action. I've seen that 795 mags work for xt-22 but not necessarily the aftermarket mags.
  6. xt-22vr fte

    I bought my first gun this January and it is a Marlin XT-22 VR. I like it a lot, but there seems to be an unusual amount of FTE's so I have to pry the casing out with a knife. I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem and if they have found a solution. I don't get to go shooting that...
  7. XT-22 problems

    Hi! Bought my first Marlin .22LR bolt action rifle a few weeks ago from Sportsmans. Finally took it out to the range today for the first time and immediately the range master stopped me after a few rounds. He said my rifle didn't sound like a "22" and asked to take a look at it. Upon inspection...

  9. New Member and New XT-22 Owner

    Hello to All! Just bought an XT-22 LR (and joined this forum). Nice looking hardwood laminate stock, good weight and narrow stock. My inspection evaluates fit-'n-finish at 90%. Pretty good for <$200. Unlike the Ruger 10/22 (which I have on backorder - I'll be lucky if it's a Christmas 2013...

    Has anyone out there had any experience with mounting a swivel stud on the forend of a XT-22 synthetic stock? I am thinking that I could use a screw in swivel stud but I dont know if the stock is hollow or not. Does anyone know?
  12. XT-22 Extraction Problems

    Hey all. Wifey got me a Marlin XT-22TR for Xmas and I love it. I've only been to the range a few times with it, but managed to get it tuned in with the scope she got with it. Shoots great and is very accurate. Only problem is that I get a very frequent extraction problem. When retracting...
  13. Boyds XT-22, a quick range report

    How's that for an eye catcher? I have to say, I'm really loving this little gun. This is my first Marlin, and my first bolt-action rimfire. The setup is pretty straight forward, an XT-22RZ in a Boyds stock, with a Mueller APT scope in Weaver "tactical" low rings, riding atop a DIP mount. After...
