I am looking to get a new .22 rifle. I have a couple marlin lever actions and a couple older "glenfield" model 60's and are very happy with them. I had my mind set on another Marlin but just got back online and logged into the forums after a long absence from internet, and found out they were bought by remington. I just looked at marlin's webpage and was looking at the 925 and 925R and also their XT-22 line...The only difference I seen was the trigger....Is it that big of difference in a .22 rifle... I have also looked at the savage models too...but prefer the Marlin.... or at least did until I heard there was a change in ownership and place of manufacture.... Can anyone tell me what they think about the xt-22's and the 925 model of .22 and how they compare.
