Marlin Glenfield M60

Another new addition to my collection...a Marlin Glenfield Model 60 chambered in .22 long rifle semi-auto with an under barrel 17 round tubular magazine.

The Glenfield's were only manufactured between 1966 and 1982...this one is from 1980.

It's topped off with a vintage K-Mart 4x15 scope that will be replaced with something a little easier to see through...

As you can see...it's in pristine condition for a 34 year old rifle.

Great little rifle, I have the same but not nearly as purty as yours. Congrats!

Nice! Might wanna keep the Kmart scope around for show. It's kind of "period correct" for the Glenfield.

Come to think of it, wow, the gun counter at Kmart- that really takes me back.

Fantastic little rifle! That combined with a 10/22 is a winning combination.

Nice looking! Got two like that, only one with the scope though. One is stored with my long term survival stuff. My favorite is their little brother a Model 60C. All of them are VERY reliable and a joy to shoot

That's really nice!

I have an old Marlin model 49 from 1970 ~ Same basic action but with a two piece stock.

Great old rifles.

Very common around here but NOT in the condition of yours!
The ones I see going for $125 are VERY used (some bordering on abused).
Like many Nylon 66's, they were preferred by coon hunters and as such, saw some VERY rough use.

Very nice looking! I have a 1975 version.

If you haven't done so, you should check out the Marlin/semi-auto section of RimfireCentraldotCom.

A LOT of great info. Especially about changes needed if your feedthroat gets worn out.

One option to consider [for all Model 60 owners] is the KAT trigger by arrowdodger. I had it done and have a safe and CRISP 2lb trigger now. I highly recommend it.

Thanks, the blond color is the actual wood color when the old finish was stripped and lightly sanded..And quite a few coats of hand applied tung oil..

Nice looking gun!

How do people like those Marlin model 60s? I've never touched one, or even seen one. But I'm looking at buying a .22LR rifle in the next few weeks and thinking about it.

It's mainly going to be for teaching my wife and some of of friends kids to shoot, and after that just plinking at 100 yards or so max for me. I'm mainly thinking about the Model 60 because it uses a tube instead of magazines and I don't want to keep track of yet another set of magazines.
