Thanks for the tip. I normally keep toothpicks in my cleaning kit for that, but this required more than a toothpick was up to.

Looks great, I've had one and a glenfield for the last 20+ years. They're still firing great. Nothing like breaking them out and popping cans all day!

Default First rifle

My Mom bought me a Marlin Model 60, from a pawn shop, when i was 12 (in my 40s now). It was handed down through 3 siblings before making its way back to me. I still shoot it. Haven't had to do any major repairs as of yet. Plan on picking up a stainless one for my 7 y/o daughter.

*noticed this post from the FirearmsTalk newsletter*
I had inherited a "Glenfield Mod. 60". I love it. I consider
it the rifle that separates the marksmen from the shooters.

It's not as easy as mounting a scope on my AR's picatinny rail. Is this a

postage stamp ~Or~ is Is there measuring, drilling, tapping and aligning
involved and probably not to be attempted unless you are a 40-year
experienced gunsmith?

Thanks for the help and great thread! Keep it going!

Anyone getting a new one has to be careful of the rear sights. The local big box store had a sale and I looked it over but not close enough. The rear sight moved back and forth so much I ended up having to buy aftermarket peep sights.

Mounting a scope is easy. Your receiver is grooved for a scope mount. Just buy a scope mount for a .22 with a grooved receiver.If you want to step up on the scope, don't buy just any scope made for a .22. Buy a 1" tube scope made for a high powered rifle. I have Bushnell 3X9' on 4 .22's. Buy grooved receiver mounts for a 1" scope.

Default Marlin model 60

I have one that I paid $2.00 for in Germany. A neighbor failed to register it with USAREUR (U.S. Army Europe) and was afraid to, because he thought he would get into trouble, so he gave it to me. Me, being an MP, knew everyone in the Provost Marshall's Office, so for $2.00 I registered it. After cleaning it and honing the sear, and installing a 4X32 scope on it, I can hit a dime at 35 yards. Don't know how many squirrels that I have shot with this thing, but it shoots better than the Ruger 10/22 that I sold!

I was also stationed in Germany, and bought a winchester model 290 deluxe at the on post Rod and Gun Club. I paid $40 bucks for it, nib, and brought it home with me. I still have it and it still shoots without a hiccup. By the way, I was stationed at Crailsheim, almost exactly halfway between Stuttgart and Nuremberg. I was in the 5th Bn 73rd Arty, Sgt Missle unit, and was the CBR-NCO and armorer for the battery. If you're on Facebook, check out the McKee Barracks page....

Geez, FOUR .22s! that's great! one fore each... hand?

OK, more to the point... I see how there are groves on the top of the receiver.
I also see groves on the top of my 1911... also for mounting scopes???

Are these the rings i can use?
41682 - 1" Tikka Quick-Detach Rings High Black Matte if so, how do they hold again?

I don't get how groves (previously used as a nail file) will make something 'stick' to
the top of anything unless i'm expected to hold it very steady and balance the
scope atop the gun. That could be a whole new sport in itself!

BTW, on my Mossberg 500 - there were 2 pre-drilled holes that i mounted a nice rail
on, for me optics. Only needed a standard Flathead screwdriver.

*Edit reason: wasn't done typing & formatting*

The scope mount on a model 60 is a 3/8" dovetail, you can buy rings that fit it.
On my gun I bought a dovetail to picatinny (weaver) adapter, when mounted you can still use the factory iron sights, but the scope sits a little higher, mine is a B-Square and works for me, the grooves you mount it to are the ones on the side, not the ones you see on the top, I guess they could be usefull as a fingernail file.
