I was on the way to the range yesterday with my stevens 200 223 and my Marlin 60sb 22 to do some shooting, i stopped into one of my favorite dealers and found a new Marlin 981T bolt action tube fed 22lr only for 154.00, well i just had to buy it, haven't shot it yet because i am waiting to put a scope on it. anybody have any experiances with one of these ???:D

I have an 81TS which is an older version and I like it a lot.

It's a good little rifle. I bought mine 2 years ago and have put somewhere in the neighborhood of 30000 rounds through it. Haven't had any problems with it. I did do a little modification to it. Rifle Basix trigger, Marlin's laminated stock and glass bedded it. It isn't a target rifle by any means, but it is still plenty accurate. With Aguila SE 40 gr. high velocity, I average about .75 at 50 yards.
