Marlin 60 Reviews

Ok, cool,

I feel honored to be the first to give the model 60 its' due props. This was my first gun at the tender age of 16, and I can honestly say that this gun is still just as fun, reliable and accurate as it was the first day I took it out of the box. It likes CCI Stingers the best, but it will fire any .22 LR I put in it. I have never felt the need to scope it, because it is accurate just like it is. Besides, I just love the feel of open sights on a .22.

Keep it clean and dry and it will never let you down.

I own one my Dad gave me, and I first fired it around the age of 12 or 14 or so. Hits dead on with open sights (never put a scope on it) and the only problem Dad ever had with it was the plastic stop inside breaking one time from normal wear and tear type use. Love it, and having a hard time debating if I should sell it to a friend offering to buy it from me. I would rate it at a full 5 and definitely recommend it to anyone!

I actually own bolt action 925 but seeing as how there is not a forum for the 925 I'm tossing out this question to you...

Does anyone know if you can get a magazine bigger than 10 rds for my 925? If so, where might I find one?

Thanks all, sorry for jumping off topic for a bit.

I got mine from my father when i was 13 or 14. He got it when he was 12 or 13, in the 60's. I just put a $25 BSA rimfire rifle scope on it. I got it zeroed in and its dead nuts accurate up to about 100 yards. I love this rifle. I own a Sig 522, an AR15, AK47, and a .308 bolt bu the marlin is still one of the more fun rifles to shoot. At $160~$180 it is a great buy that will last for years.

I got a Marlin-Glenfield model 60 combo in the early 70s.

It takes .22shorts, longs & lrs... even mixed up. Never had a FTF or FTE... even though I put some real junk through it.

Good to 100 yards+ if shooter is up to it with the 4x 20mm scope. A 3x7 30mm scope is optimal for target shooting.

Myself, I like it best with no scope since few shots are beyond 100 FEET for squirrels & such.

I have an older model 60 w/ 22" barrel bought used for $60. I put an inexpensive Simmons 3x9 scope on it and it's a pretty accurate gun out to 100yds or so - which is my personal limit for serious .22 shots. It does have an occasional FTF. I've tried different ammo., thorough cleanings, etc. but it just fails to feed once in a while. I figure it's a wear issue more than a design issue. It's a nice way to burn up a brick of ammo. I'd rate it 4 stars w/o the occasional jam.
