This is a picture of my Marlin 983. It is a bolt action, tube fed (12 round capacity), .22 Win. Mag, and has a Bushnell Sportsman 4-12 x 40 scope. It has a 22-inch Micro-Groove barrel. I use this gun mainly for squirrel hunting, and it is very accurate out to 125 yards. I know the Ruger 10/22 is the standard issue rifle for just about every hunting family in the USA, and while we have those, the 983, or its predecessor 883, is the go-to rifle for small game and plinking in my family.
