    Picked up a Marlin 60 today.

    $100 out the door from my local guy. Yes, of course its used but it is in good shape.

    Cant wait to get to the house and burn through a few rounds.

    Lots of talk on the Ruger 10/22 vs Marlin 60 on this and other forums. Ill have to have both.

    I have an old model 60 that I redid as a project not too long ago. It had the old beaten up wooden stock with the chipmunk on the grip...

    not any more....

    I had a model 65C back in the day. Tube fed magazine held 14 rounds I think. Good shooter. It didn't like hollow point ammo though. I had it reworked by the factory in the late 80's. Traded it in on my first 10/22 about ten years ago. Have fun with your new plinker.

    It is a fun gun.

    Can't beat a .22 plunker...and you have the land to shoot on, too!

    The Marlin 60 was the first gun in the house when I was little. My Dad got it to shoot groundhogs. Excellent plinker! Congrats!

    I have a Marlin 62 - Lever action in caliber .30 CARBINE.

    It had no magazines when I got it.

    I finally located two vintage magazines for it a Numrich Arms Corp.

    $22.00 each and well worth it since the rifle will fetch at least $650.00 should I ever decide to sell it.

    I do want to buy a cheapo scope for it. Ill probably use it to hunt rabbit and squirrel.

    Gonna retire at least one of the older .22's I have. Gonna search out a 10/22 as well.

    Man, I find good stuff in the pawn shops.

    I put a Bushnell® Sportsman Riflescope on my 10/22 and it has been fabulous. Held zero fine through 5000 rounds so far. Mine was $30!

    I have one of those too. Mine still has the squirrel/chipmunk stock like the one in your picture and I think it has the Glenfield name on it. My grandpa got it used, refinished the stock and gave it to me for Christmas in about 1978 or so. It was my first firearm and I hope to pass it down to my grandson one day. I shot lots of rabbits, rats and aluminum cans with it over the years.

    A few years back they were on sale somewhere for $99 (new, with the plain stock like in EAJ's post) and my dad bought 4 of 'em. I put a scope on one of those and mom uses it for rabbit hunting in the yard. It's always loaded and leaning up next to the backdoor of my parents house in case she looks out the window and sees one. Dad says she'd kill and eat every rabbit on the planet if he'd let her.

    All of the ones I've ever shot were pretty accurate rifles. My father-in-law had a stainless model and I put a scope on it for him to shoot predators with around his place where he raised pidgeons. That one was the most accurate one I have ever seen. It would put 5 shots into one ragged hole at 25-30 yards with cheap ammo. Someone broke into his house and stole it though.
    When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.

    I have a Bushnell 4x32mm .22 rimfire scope on my Glenfield that is more than adequate and included the rings. It was about $30 a few years ago. I believe they also manufacture a 3-9X rimfire scope if you prefer a variable.

    Where did you get that stock? I've got a model 60 that I've had for about 15 years and it's getting a little rough.
