    My first digits are 98 and 98-100=-2 so what year would it be? 2002?

    Cool deal, I have the same model 25N, received it 20 years ago as a birthday gift from my dad. Back before the ammo scares, I put brick after brick of ammo through it. The gun is a better shooter than I am!

    You’re a good artist!  I respect the thought of not wanting to kill a "mommy" deer.  I was wondering how that hunting trip went.  Thanks for sharing!

    I have a Marlin 780 which is about the same as yours. It is very fussy about the ammo that it shoots. Federal Champion target is under an inch at 50 yds. and Federal Champion 40 grain in the BYOB carton shoots all over the place(5"-6") CCI 36 grain target is about 2" and Winchester super x h
    igh velocity 40 grain shoots under an inch.

    Mirco grove marlins like 40 grain

    I have two model 80 rifles no s/n on either one the oldest one does not have the micro groove barrel, the newer one does I think the newer one dates back to the early 50s and the older one to the 40s

    Your results look typical of starting out with a clean barrel and after about 25 to 50 rounds your accuracy stabilized.

    5:12 wonderful out of context

    I have a 25N Marlin that I love. It’s very accurate. It’s really broke in after over 20k of ammo thru it. Longest kill on a rabbit is 120 yards. It’s smooth and reliable. Light trigger.
    The disassembly is simple especially the bolt. Genius compared to a lot of 22 rifles.
    Stay away from the Remington ammo. It’s just garbage. So inconsistent. I had a case head separate once and blow the mag out and turn it to junk shooting Remmy.
    Anyway not likely you’ll wear it out shooting. My roosters are annoying as well but make great soup! 🙂 take care!

    The newest models are the XT series guns…

  21. jimmy parrell on September 20, 2022 at 9:09 pm

    You should try federal match grade ammo I get dime size groups all day at 50 yard with it out of my marlin xt22tsr

  22. Jim Richard on September 20, 2022 at 9:09 pm

    I bought a 25N new, many years ago.. The serial starts with 09 so I guess it makes it a 1991.. I have probably only shot 25 rounds through it.. I didn’t like the drab brown stock so I removed the finish and stained it with a red cherry and then used a gloss Poly to seal it up.. Last fall I put a scope on it and tested it and it did not do too well – probably about a 2" group at 25 yards (My Hatsan pellet rifle can do hole in hole at 25 yards – lol), using some High velocity Remington ammo, maybe standard ammo may work better.. The trigger is terrible hard.. So I guess this coming summer I will change out the trigger spring and I may free float the barrel and see it that helps (also gonna try some low velocity ammo).. I guess since it has only been fired 25 times total, that maybe after a couple hundred rounds the barrel may season and break in.. Time will tell..

    I have 1 built in 1982. It’s a tackdriver. I ‘ve found the CCI mini mags to be the most accurate ammo for my old beast. Mine will fire shorts, long ,and Lr. Has never let me down!

  24. Nate S. on September 20, 2022 at 9:19 pm

    I don’t shoot anything that’s high velocity without the copper coating, it always causes lead fouling eventually.

  25. John Minton on September 20, 2022 at 9:19 pm

    I have one, my great grandfather bought it for my dad when he was 13, and he gave it to me a few days ago

  26. Sebastian Fernandez on September 20, 2022 at 9:20 pm

    Great gun ! I have the same model . Cheers! From Parral . Chile.

  27. Victor L. Fazio III on September 20, 2022 at 9:26 pm

    Funny. I got the same rig. Same box of old ammo. Same miss fire. Good video lol

  28. Thunder Breath on September 20, 2022 at 9:27 pm

    2:52 Our squirrels must be related, the resemblance is uncanny! 😁

  29. Jim Ferro on September 20, 2022 at 9:31 pm

    Good Video. I have the same model, but mine was made in 1995. I have found it to be extremely accurate (at shorter distances) and perhaps more importantly, capable of digesting any kind of .22 Ammo (which cannot be said for many semi-autos). Keep up the good work!

  30. Garandasaurus on September 20, 2022 at 9:32 pm

    Thanks for the reply John.
    I’ve used a ton of federal and it’s good stuff. CCI blazer and standard velocity very good too. Excellent results with Aguila S.V. as well.
    I used to see replacement triggers, could check on that. Otherwise Very light parts polishing may do the trick. Mine had a very heavy trigger that was nasty, and with constant everyday shooting it smoothed out and is pleasing to use now.
    Your scope can be checked by bagging the rifle solidly and whilst looking thru the scope at a target for reference, carefully dry fire and watch for any bounce or movement of your cross hair. If it jumps and settled laterally from where it was that will cause a slightly wandering zero from shot to shot. I recently thoroughly cleaned mine after like a case of ammo went thru it, and as I completely disassembled the rifle including scope, I found screws that were loose… since I cleaned it and reassembled it’s been a tack driver, so you might check screws as well. I know this is a long message, but I love shooting mine and I’m set up like you out in the country. I shoot almost every day. I hope this information might help. It’s really a great rifle. Very underrated.

    Mine was made in 95 it was my first gun. Its very accurate and I love it! Thousands and thousands of rounds have been through it and not one single problem.
