Daughter Samantha's main present was a Marlin XT-22VR:
|Caliber||22 LR (70835)|
|Action||Blued bolt action, thumb safety, red cocking indicator|
|Stock||Black synthetic Beaver-tail stock with palm swell, full pistol grip, molded in swivels, and stippled grip areas|
|Barrel||22" blued heavy varmint barrel with Micro-Groove® rifling (16 grooves) and recessed muzzle|
|Sights||Includes rear and front scope bases only. Receiver grooved for scope mount, drilled and tapped for scope bases|
Of course, we outfitted it with a variable .22WMR scope from Simmons, and her sister contributed three 10-round magazines. I took a picture of Sam with the new rifle last night, with her phone, and haven't received that from her yet.
She's one happy camper, and can't wait for our range trip on Sunday to try it out.

A hearty "welcome aboard" to Joey, whom I believe is also known as Senior Chief - a blogger whose work I began following yesterday. If you're a foodie, or into prepping (both good things) you'll enjoy his writing.
