Yea, ive got some model 60's.
I hate how long they take to load, wanted a clip fed semi auto.
Maybe a 10/22?

Marlin does make the Model 795, clip-fed version of the Model 60. At one time, they even had a heavy-barrel target version - might be good to check the auction sites and locate one?
I've also heard mixed reviews on the 702. I am a Mossberg collector, but haven't been tempted by this new upstart from Brazil. :)
Another excellent option is the Armscor M22C - it has a stock patterned after the Ruger 10-22, and the action is closest to the old Mossberg M152/352 series, and has a nice rugged 10-round box magazine. Just got mine - it puts my Marlin M60 and Ruger 10-22 to shame! It may not be imported anymore, but is worth a look.
