Looking for a bolt action squirrel gun. Thoughts on these and any others you may suggest that may be similar. Looking for the best performer per dollar. Not really concerned blued vs matte or wood vs plastic stock, just want one that puts them in the same hole

Whats your thoughts?

Might look at the new Ruger American Rimfires. I personally own a 77/22 all weather.
For the Marlin, I'd look for a pre-Remington one.
The savage I'd look for a pre-accu-trigger. I'd recommend a Blue Bull barrel with a green stock.

Dont aim to sound like a broken record...but if you can swing the extra cash a CZ makes a great little .22.

But between the ones you asked about I would go with the Savage hands down, for the money ther real good shooters, like me some Savage rifles.

I have a Marlin 880SQ and it is a tack driver. The SQ stands for squirrel. It will shoot with a CZ all day long. I did put a after market trigger and it is set to about 2 pounds.
