    Marlin 781. 1975.
    Bolt Action
    15+1 rounds
    Shoots: .22 Short, .22 (regular), and .22 Long (including subsonic).

    Bought it beat up (rusted piece of junk) and restored it.

    Mind you, I like having the AR in 22 (i have the CMMG conversion UPPER, 2 25 round mags and 1 Black dog 50 round drum), but there is something to be said about old bolt action .22's. Especially ones that can shoot .22 short. The hammer/action is louder than the actual .22 short round (you call him Dr. Jones, doll- sorry, I digress) itself. Nice for picking off varmints in populated areas without alarming the neighbors.
