I did put a Sig Whiskey 3x9x 40 on the 10-22. Budget scope around $129. Not a good scope at all. Parralex really bad. Can’t see as good as the cheap Vortex 2x7 by a long shot. I know sig makes some good scopes but this isn’t one of them. Wish I had ordered from Amazon so I could return it. Ok at 25 yards. Hard to even see the 3 inch shoot and sees at 50. Every power range you move ocular eyepiece has to be adjusted. Duplex reticle a little too thick. Could still keep cci around 1 inch at 50 and for fairness will have to change trigger and scope on the Ruger for a good comparison.
When it comes to scopes and mounts, in addition to requiring good optics and weatherproofness, I want my scopes to be as compact and as low-mounted as practical on any rifle but especially so when they are installed on a .22 sporter.

I purchased one about 10/2018,
Beautiful rifle. I am a short individual so my LOP has to be around 12". I had no problems cutting the stock down to this LOP. Put a sling on her and a Bushnell scope on her. Great shooter.

A sling is my next add on. It’s nice and light but 2 hands isn’t enough sometimes. Finally got decent 2x7 mounted super low on it. Been a decent shooter but it sure gets dirty quick.

I used a T-Nut to mount the front swivel for my sling. That makes it very strong and secure.

I have a model 60 from the 1972, never really warmed up to it and haven't shot mine in 30 years. I much prefer the 9422 I have.

Some like them but I just never liked it.

I think the more notable issue relevant to the Marlin Model 60 is how remarkably long this thread has remained in the Bolt, Lever, And Pump Action Rifle sub-forum.

Would you think the same if it had been about Ruger 10/22's?

Well....yeah.
Since the 10/22 is no more of a bolt, lever, or pump gun than the Marlin 60 is.

Sorta a "duh" question.
