I have owned many 22's of every make and type in my lifetime and I have gotten great service from the Rugers and Marlins and I tend to stick with them. I presently have three semi auto loaders: a 1960 Glenfield /Marlin Model 60 w/scope, a Marlin Model 99M1 carbine and a Ruger 10/22. I bought the Glenfield and the Marlin at an estate auction this year both were manufactured in 1960, neither had ever been fired, and were LNIB, Total $120 for both.
Oh you lucky rascal!!
The 99m1 probably won't have a serial number...gotta use the two-letter date code under the stock.
And its not the JM inna circle...that's the John Marlin proofmark
I'm not just Trigger Happy, I'm Trigger Ecstatic!!
