    Long story short, I *had* a Ruger 10/22 for a while, but I hated the trigger pull, hard, imprecise, almost 9# pull, no consistent break, I traded it for a Savage Mark II-G and was glad I did, the AccuTrigger breaks at 2.5#, and has a crisp, reliable feel

    I'm feeling the urge to add a semiauto .22 to the collection again, and it's come down to a tie between a Marlin 60 and a Savage 64, I've heard good things about the accuracy of the Marlin 60, but rarely anything about it's trigger pull, and I've heard even less about the Savage 64

    out of the box, how do the trigger pulls on a Marlin 60 and Savage 64 comapre to my Savage Mark II? I want a nice, light, crisp trigger pull, heavy LawyerTriggers are a big turn-off for me

    The Savage and Marlin are about the same. Spungy but not as heavy as the Ruger. My Marlin just weighed in at a 5lb 10oz avg, 5 pulls, and it was all over the place, the heaviest was 6 03 the lowest was 4 14. So not bad.

    Also, the 10/22 trigger while being lawyer friendly is one of the easiest and cheapest triggers to fix. Have fun trying to get the 60 or 64 anywhere near what the accutrigger is or what the 10/22 can be.

    Regarding the Marlin 60:

    Apparently mine is pretty good as far as the trigger pull. I hear the trigger pulls vary alot from 1 to another. One issue with the 60 is the trigger system is contained half in the stock and half on the receiver. If the action goes in the stock differently (Or if it moves around) the trigger will vary a little. Rifle actions and stocks should be put together the same way every time anyway.

    The Marlin 60 can be given a trigger job easily and VERY cheaply by the home hobbyist.

    Look at the top of this forum for a Sticky about how to do it: http://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=217

    That said, mine is stock, and it works fine for me. It's not as nice as my .22 match pistol, but the trigger on that thing cost me as much as the whole Marlin 60 did...:D

    10/22 trigger, when worked on.. = GLASS.

    or a drop-in kit, done.. well worth it, IMO.. As u can tell I'm a fan of 10/22's.

    I've had marlin 60's and the such but they seem to come and go but the rugers stay.
