my dad has a glenfield model 60 carbine with the 3/4 magazine. only one i have ever seen like it. im pretty sure that you could (not that i would) blindly point this thing and it would hit the target in the bulseye... it just wont miss. american gun making at its best. doesnt cost a lot and will outshoot most other guns. only thing is that it does jam more than my 10/22 but then again, the last time i saw this thing cleaned, i was crapping in my diapers... im 23.

Recently bought a like new unfired Marlin 60 at a gun show for a great deal. Cleaned it and took it to the range, and what a great shooter. My grandson loved it and will probably end up with it as he already claims half of what it have anyway. By the way, I suggest only using good brands of mini mag .22's in any semi auto rile or pitols as low cost lead bulk ammo will have jam problems and even failures to fire in single shot rifles and 6 shot revolvers.

Extremely accurate right out of the box, makes plinking so much more fun since .22lr ammo is relatively cheap. Cleaning this gun is not fun. It's a pain to completely disassemble and thoroughly clean the rifle.

Love this gun. Wouldn't trade it for the world as it was my first weapon. If I ever have a son when he becomes old enough this will be his first as well (after the Daisy BB gun of course!) I love to plink with this little rifle.

Have thought long and hard about getting it scoped, but I believe I will keep it as is. To be honest, I'd love to get my hands on another new Marlin 60 to scope it. I just don't want to get rid of my original or change anything about it.

Shoots everytime, in 30 years it's never been cleaned. I love this gun.

a 4 power 4plex scope is perfect for that little gun

Bought this rifle new 10 years ago. It's performed well over the years. Only complaint it needs constant of cleaning to stay sharp.

Just shot mine in a silhouette match this weekend. Placed 3rd out of 34 (27points) with my non-regular ammo. A few of those guys I consider to be flat out better shooters than me and everyone shoots fancier and more expensive rifles. It shoots best with CCI mini-mags plated round nose.

I bought it about 5 years ago for $65 with a 4x scope and 2 stocks, one to cut down a little for my boys. On my best days it shoots a sub 2 inch group at 100.

It will have an occasional FTE when dirty but a quick drop of CLP on the carrier/lifter and it runs like a top.

It's mine 'till I die.

I would drive over a pile of Ruger 10/22s for a Marlin 60.

I have a glenfield model 60 that I bought used over a year ago. It is an older model that holds 18 rounds. The guns shoots very well I have yet to have issues with it. It has Springfield scope on it that that makes the rifle look great. I used ruger 10/22s all through childhood. this rifle shoots just as good. I highly recommend, paid 90 bucks with the scope at a pawn shop.
