The rifling looks good, so I expect it to shoot well. This one sports a 22" micro-groove barrel.

I have a 1977 Glenfield model 10 that I've had since I was 4 (about 30 years). It wears a El Paso Weaver 4X that I purchased several years ago off this forum from Gaterskiner. Shoots good with Remington golden saber's. Trigger is nice and broke in at 2 1/4 lbs.

This is my first and only Marlin rimfire. It has JJ stamped on the left side of the barrel, which means it was made October 1966.

Nice looking rifle! The model 10/100/101 are pretty much the same rifles, minus the stocks, from the research I've done and the catalogs I have.

Beauty! The JJ on the barrel is likely the date stamp for October 1966...
I agree on the JJ. The T shaped cocking piece was new in 1966 according to Brophy.

I got the rifle sighted in this evening at 25 yards from my back porch. It was hitting 4" high and 4" right. I lowered the rear sight 2 notches on the sight elevator and drifted the rear sight about 3/16" to the left. I was using some old Winchester white box ammo that I've had for at least 20 years.

I wasn't trying to dial it in to perfection, but just get it to hit the bull's-eye that I was aiming at. I was shooting from a lawn chair and I'm satisfied with how it shoots.

This is two groups of 3 shots. I knew I pulled that high shot on my 3rd shot

These are round nose jacketed, probably 40gr, but the box doesn't say

That is a nice 101, they are nice little 22's. A guy on this forum turned me on to this 1959 Deluxe 101 last year. It called a Crown Prince, had to drive 6 hour round trip to Buy it. Its my only birth year Marlin I own so it was worth the trip to me.

That's a very nice looking 101! I'd say it was worth the trip too. I don't have a birth year Marlin yet (67). My 101 is my brother's birth year (66). The previous owners of my 101 either used it with a scope, or didn't shoot it much with iron sights. I couldn't believe how far off the iron sights were. I'm glad it was still at my LGS when I decided to buy it.

I put a Simmons .22 Mag 4x32 scope on my Marlin 101 a few days ago. It has quickly become my favorite rifle for chipmunk control.

Today I bought a brick (500) of 22 shorts, 29gr high velocity (1,095 fps) plated round nose at my LGS. It's as quiet as my pellet rifle, but it smacks em a lot harder.
