    It'll shoot .22 S/L/LR's.

    Standard, High & Hyper velocity.

    At 41 yards, somewhere between dime-sized & quarter-sized groups...if you are capable of 'em :)

    All you will likely need to do to it is buy a few extra mags, clean it, & shoot it.

    If you want even tighter groups than quarters, Pillar-bed it, then slap a good scope & sling on it.
    If you can't do it yourself, Gunsmiths usually charge around $50 for that.

    My model 80 is my favorite rimfire and in the top 3 of all my guns(my wife even likes it)
    At 50 yards mine is dime size(one big hole) if I do my part and that is with Federal bulk pack ammo,but I found that it doesn't suffer much with most other bulk ammo.
    At 100 yards its about 5 inches aiming at the top of a shoot-n-see (50 yd zero)using CCI Minimags(this is with a Centerpoint scope from Wally World).
    My LGS stocks mags for mine,they are the "old style" 7 rounders with the release button on them.They are available on Gunbroker also.

    How much more do you want?
    Parts,accuracy is all there,can't help you with shooting it but I will say that they are really good plinkers.

    Accuracy of Marlins are better than average, due to the Micro-groove barrels.

    All you have to do is find out which ammo shoots BEST...which means lotsa fun testing :D
    (Fat jacketed bullets tend to work best)
    (Avoid Remington Golden Bullet ammo)

    You may have to get an FFL holder/gunsmith to order it for you.
    Numrich has 'em...but ordinary folk can't order them.

    Check Gunbroker periodically also...
