Default Marlin 60

I just bought my first rifle yesterday (not new to guns, only new to rifles). It is a Marlin 60 with a Bushnell Sportsview 3x-9x scope. It is used, but in good condition. According to what research I've done on the gun, based on the serial number and an article online, the gun was made in 1988. I -paid $210 for it and that was with 200 rounds of ammo.

Default Marlin 60

Nice score! I have no Exp. with the Marlins. Most seem to be "Hit or Miss." Heard the same about the Remington 597,...
Enjoy your "new" to you shooter. Hope you have better luck getting ammo then the rest of us have...

Nice buy! Those "older" Marlins are good rifles. I've had two of them and liked them both. A word of advice: DONT lose or break the brass inner magazine tube!!! They are insanely expensive!

Thanks guys. I'm not sure if they still do or not but Rural King did have 550 count bulk packages of ammo for .22lr

Congrats on the New Rifle. Marlin makes some of the finest 22 barrels available. I have had a couple of Marlin 39A Lever Rifles and both have been extremely accurate even at around 75 yards! Send us some target pictures and a range report. Looks like a great rifle and well taken care of!

nice looking Marlin 60. a bit high priced IMO though. used, even in decent shape they usually go for about $100-150. even new at Wally World they go for about $150-170. mine is one that was made in 1980 or 1981 and i paid $80 for it a few years ago.

I don't know where you live but here rifles are selling for about $150 used and thats with no scope or ammo......new they're selling for $180 before tax with no scope or anything. I checked out other Marlin 60's in the area to see what they're going for before I bought it.

< wishes there was a Rural King HERE!! Tractor Supply just opened here and we went in yesterday. They don't Stock A lot of Ammo To begin With. There were Shotgun & Some Rifle Ammo, but of course, they were cleaned out of 22 Ammo in the first 3 Days. Not Surprised....

East Texas. i have seen them new for $153 plus tax at Wally World. got a sales flyer several months ago with that price. that's the great thing about a 22 rimfire. you don't need an ultra expensive scope for them, since they have next to no recoil. they also have open sights, so a scope is not a must have for the Marlin 60. i simply added one i already had to mine, after buying a $10 set of rings for it. i have just seen too many decent ones in the $100-150 range that to me $210, seems a bit high. just my thoughts.
