Good choice in rifles, much better than the Axis or Mossber IMO. Glad you like it!

Also happy you got the Marlin X rifle. Yea, I recommended the Mossberg, but you limited your choice to it or an Axis. Own a couple of the Marlin X rifles and if you'd asked for what budget type rifle to buy, I certainly would have recommended it.

ended up goin with the marlin XS7 .308 new with sling and burris 3-9x40 scope for $350. The acutrigger shoots like a dream and the bolts smooth as butter
If I'd seen this thread earlier I would have recommended exactly that. The Marlin is the pick of the litter in inexpensive rifles. You're far better off with a Marlin and a Burris than a more expensive rifle and a cheap scope.

Good hunting.
