Ruger go for the Ruger 10/22's are the most add on friendly gun you can get

You're right Bud - but thing is - as some folks prove, you can ultimately have what? - $500 or more into one of those, whereas good ol' simple Marlin is OK ''as is'' apart from adding a scope.
For the tricked out 10/22 you could get some other real upmarket shooters. All depends what folks want - and want to spend.

Stock would be the main thing i think for Different LOP where as i know its harder to find different stocks for the marlin ..
plus easy to do trigger work on the 10/22 for my taste sure you can have a 1K 10/22 but thats more money than brains im talking simple stuff like a trigger or hammer for under 50$ plus springs for a excellent trigger pull .. Or replacing the barrel for say a heavy barrel very easy to do
Plus the Marlin i had was a hunk of junk so i havent like them since

Synthetic and stainless, semiautomatic, detachable magazine?
Hmmm either the 10/22 carbine like I have or the Marlin 795SS. That'd be my choices. I'd personally go 10/22 in the case just because there's so many places to get magazines and they're so cheap.

I'd second what some others have said above. For your price range I'd buy an SKS for "serious" applications, and a Ruger 10/22 for plinking.
If you're careful you could probably buy both for less than $300 total. Ammo for both is fairly cheap, too.
AIMsurplus.com has "shooter grade" SKSs for $79.95.
