Marlin Model 780 Wikipedia
The Marlin Model 780 features a 21.25-inch barrel with micro-groove rifling (16 grooves). It has buckhorn iron sights. It has a 2-position thumb safety lever. It uses a 7-round blued steel box magazine. It is capable of chambering .22 Short, .22 Long, and .22 Long Rifle cartridges.
The Marlin 780 is well suited for small game hunting. It can also be used for low-cost but serious target practice or hunting practice, or just plinking around. It is ideal for young shooters since it is small and lightweight. Since it can chamber .22 Short it is capable of target practice or pest control with less noise than a .22 Long Rifle. Its microgroove barrel makes it highly accurate at longer distances compared to most other .22 LR rifles.Model 780- removable box magazine
