I have an older version, the 882SS. It's one of my favorite rifles. (Was THE favorite, until a 77/22 came into the mix.)
The newer triggers (like yours) are far better than what mine had from the factory.
My rifle is most accurate with 40-50 gr bullets, but shoots most loads fairly well.

If you anticipate finding yourself in a situation where you'll be carrying the rifle a lot with a sling, buy one or two of the 4-round magazines for it. They don't stab you in the back, like the 7-rounders. Marlin usually has a really good sale on them, on their website, some time between March and June every year. --A few years ago, the 7-rounders were half price and the 4-rounders were discounted plus 'buy one get one free', with $3 shipping.
