Just purchased a Marlin 922m a few weeks ago. Walked in to a local gun/pawn shop looking for a .22 magnum rifle planning on probably getting a Savage. The owner of the shop grabbed the marlin to show me and I was instantly impressed. He did not have a savage in .22wmr but had the rifle in .17. After picking up that rifle there really was no comparison. Im sure the savage was a great shooter but felt cheap with the synthetic stock. My marlin is a 1993 model with the uncheckered walnut stock which I lightly refinished. So far I have replaced the trigger guard, recoil buffer, recoil spring, recoil spring rod, extractor spring, and got a new magazine for it. Had some cycling problems with it when I took it out. Hoping these items will get it running like new again. Also getting the trigger worked on by Bill Springfield of triggerwork.net.

It actually sounds like a bigger project than it is. The rifle itself looks great, excellent condition all around. The feed/cycling problems are the main issue, shot probably 200 rds through it a week ago and although I had to cycle the action by hand it shot great. Oh I also forgot to mention that the barrel has been cut down to 16.5" making it a great pack rifle.
