I love my Marlin 60. I have since I bought it brand new........in 1980.

It has digested at least 30-40K (or more) rounds by myself and two now grown sons, and a new $6 buffer is all that has been replaced in 31years.

It ain't goin' nowhere.

Rimfire Forum

It's the classic 18 shot with the squirrel stock.

I bought one to replace the 55 year old J.C. Higgins I was using. The J.C. still works but has a mind of its own and I don`t trust it anymore. The Marlin shoots great.

One of these days I need to stop at the Farm store and pick up some .22 brass tubing so I can make some more speed loaders for my M60 and my other tube fed .22s (LR & Mag).

I just picked one up back home when I was on leave. Didn't get a chance to shoot it since I had to get back home here the next day so I mailed it to myself and it should be here by Wednesday. Mine is I think an older one with the longer barrel and magazine capacity, smooth stocks and has the bolt stop button on it. Not sure when it was made but I think the dealer said it was something like an early 90s model. Can't wait until it gets in so I can take it in to work and give it a try. One thing I am probably going to do it put a Simmons 3-9 22 mag scope on it but I have to figure out what rings (medium or high) I am going to need.

I gave one to my nephew on the occasion of his 18th birthday. We took it shooting a few times and he shot it alot while away at school. He made a comment about wishing it was more tacticool so I got another stock and did some work.
This is how he keeps it now.

Rimfire Forum

He still has the factory stock, but it sits in his room unused.

I love my Model 60.

I just ordered a 3-9 x 32 scope/rings for it yesterday. I've been able to plink golf balls at ~40 yds with the open sights, but my eyes are starting to have a hard time focusing on the front sight. It's hell getting old...

People say everyone has a Ruger 10/22, but I think the Marlin 60 is more popular.

Model 60 is the number one selling .22 rifle of all time! I had to have one! I personally have owned, somewhere between 10-15 22 rifles, and to date, have only had one, that shoots tighter groups, then my model 60. Bought one on a wim, and lo and behold it's my favorite squirrel rifle. Can't wait for September! By the way, I have four dedicated squirrel rifles.

That was a factory Marlin 60 stock I added the pistol grip to.

A model 60 was my first .22lr and I wish I still had it. It was very accurate with the cheap scope that came with it. I don't think I ever cleaned it but it staill ran.

Quite a fine job CJ5 did, too

Nice to see you are still kicking around!!

I believe that the stock mod thread is on RFC (Rimfire Central) somewhere...beautiful work and some great pics of how he did it!!

You might want to check out peep sights as well, they help your eye strength
Tech-Sights are the favored mod for Marlin 60's & 795's!!
http://www.tech-sights.com/marlin.htm

The Ruger 1022, at Jan 2011, had sold a little over 7 million rifles since 1963.
The Marlin 60, has sold over 12 million rifles since its introduction in 1960.

The reason Ruger has so many options...because it NEEDED better repair parts than the stock parts :D
With Marlins, just point & shoot...no mods needed because they are already exceptionally precise

This was my first gun ever when my parents bought it for me when I was young.. Wish I took better care of it. Has some rust on her. I was young. Never cleaned it or anything. Sure shot the crap out of her though. Still have her. I'll never get rid of her.

Thanks Shrek.
It is Hipshot that has the thread on RFC. Really helped me in doing this stock.

My first .22 rifle was a Marlin 60. Loved that rifle.

Thinking of picking up one with the squirrel on the stock. Just for nostalgia's sake.

Never, never had an issue with it, unlike the 10/22.

The older ones with the squirrel on the stock also held 18rds instead of 14.
