Honestly the two I'd consider are the 10/22 and the Marlin 60. Just really depends on what you want to do with it. From most of what I've read the Marlin 60 seems to be more accurate out of the box in factory form. However, I have a 10/22 too and at 35-40 yards it shot about a 1" group. I shot maybe 30 or 40 rounds and had the 1" bullseye completely shot out with only like two outside of that. That's perfectly fine for shooting a squirrel. If you want out of the box accuracy you might want the Marlin 60 though.
If you want to customize or upgrade it though you for sure want the 10/22 no doubt about it. You can also make the 10/22's very very accurate if you do some work to them.
