I have 2 of each,They are both nice rifles . My go to rifle is always the Marlin 60. Because it is tube fed it has a much slimmer profile,not boxy like the 10-22.I also feel the 60 is more accurate. That being said, there are more after market parts for the Ruger which you will need to buy to make it more accurate than the 60..Enjoy, this subject has been chewed over many times on different forums. Let us know what you finally buy. The best advice I can give you is shoulder each,then you will know... to buy the 60.
