Default Marlin 60

Ran across a 1984(I think.. serial begins with 16) Marlin 60 in approx 60-70% condition for $80.

Has sctratches, worn spot on barrel from a loop strap(my guess) dings, etc.

Not dirty, just looks really well used. Sold as-is and do not know if it fires or not.

Is it worth $80...worth it if it does not work?

Thanks

That was the first .22 I bought right after I turned 18.
Yes it is worth $80 as long as it shoots (does it have the small scope on it?), I saw one at a gun show last weekend for $125 in good cond.

For about $50 more you can buy a brand new one at Wally World - they go for $130 where I live.

I don't think any of the WMs in Birmingham sell guns anymore - Academy does and the 60 is $179 and a 10/22 is $249 I think.

Anybody from Bham know about any WMs that still sell guns? The 3 nearest to Hoover do not.

In Alabama? Now I know the country's gone to sh!t!!! The base model Ruger 10/22 in Wally World up here goes for $199. The stainless version is about $250.

I'm not sure it's worth $80 if it does work. But if it does, it'll probably last forever!

PM stalkingbear. He has a ton of experience with the 60. Not all good experiences. Not a big fan but trust him!

I'm doing a refinish on my Revelation 120 (Marlin 60) over on: http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f35/my-tango-plunkungfest-westeren-auto-120-a-14041/#post107914

I want to shoot in the monthly plunk fest and don't want to buy another .22. I got some trick ideas to pimp my Western Auto!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I see alot of newer models for $85 or so (which I would pay) Judging from your description I'd pay $50........just my 2 cents.......

Like RL357MAG said a new isn't much more....$140 or so around here

I've had one for years and really like it, its put many, many squirrels on the table.....

Yes, AL has gone to the crazies. I hear that some of the ones not in the city still sell them.

Nice restoration. I would love to find an older one. Glenfield, WA, Sears or whatever else thay branded them as. I just like the history of them and the fact they are so good!
