I think the 7000 is very accurate. With scope attached it impressed the smallbore shooters at the range.

I bought this for squirrel hunting and am very glad I did. It puts the round right on the mark and is very light to carry through the woods.

Glad I didnt spend the all the extra bucks on a Ruger or CZ.

I've only seen a shot three of the Marlin 7000 rifles. They shot far better out of the box than factory stock 10/22s, but that's not saying all that much. They didn't shoot quite as well as the T/C Classic autos I've shot, but they're a hundred dollars less so that's no real slight on the Marlins. They wouldn't compete with CZ452s, though, especially if both were fed good quality ammo (Wolf Match Target or better).

i thought about buying a 7000 but i already have two .22's and no time to shoot the ones i already have, unfortunately.

would you guys say that its roughly on par with the 10/22 and just not getting the same recognition?

The action is the same,the 7000 has a bull barrel and synthetic stock.The barrel is one inch less tan the 60.Mine will shoot a little over a half an inch at 60 yards with federal game shoks or winchester power points.

Moontroll is absolutely correct..I had a 7000 and gave it to my grandson..having built the 10/22s with the heavy barrels etc..but the 7000 outshot them all; and it did it with nary a jam..
Wish I could say the same for the tricked out 10/22s..
