I am buying a 10/22 take down today and I think they are worth the money. All kinds of accessories are available, they run like a champ, and cheap to shoot.
I had a Marlin 60 that I bought for $100. I didn't like loading the tube and I couldn't get the stock to fit me. Yes it shot fine, but I didn't like it so I bought a Ruger. Now I am going to buy my second one.
