I have several .22's. A CZ 455 Varmint, a Marlin 60SS and a Ruger 10/22 light varmint.
I've some others but these are the ones I shoot the most.
I was convinced that the Marlin was as good as the Ruger and I was also convinced by reading that the CZ would be a tack driver.
I didn't really want to like the Ruger as so many people had them. Just a quirk on my part.
However now I'd pick the Ruger 10/22 over any of the others. It has shot into .5 inches at 50 yards. I like the removable magazine better than the tube on the Marlin. And I bought a couple of extra magazines for faster loading.
The CZ is fine but it's the most expensive, doesn't shoot any better and is bolt action. The Marlin is okay but it has a crummy trigger compared to the others and I don't like the tube feed for loading. And it has the poorest groups of the 3.
