A used Marlin 60 at auction in my area have been selling in the neighborhood, depending on condition, of $100-$125, the Model 99M1 in excellent condition go for $150-$175. I have six Marlin 22's and a Marlin 336 in .35 Cal.

The old model M60 was a 18 round rifle. The sights are different as well as the magazine cap. I'm redoing an old Glenfield/Marlin 60 at the moment.

Now is a good time to snag one with 22 ammo scarce I see good deals on model 60 and other brands as well.I wish the price would fall on a model 39 though. But it don't look like its gonna happen .I got side tracked into 22 long rifles a while back and cant kick the addiction. The model 39 is next on my list of just gotta have. I dont have a model 60 but should pick one up as well.

Love my 60. I've had it for 20+ years and its never failed me. When I grab a 22 to go have some fun, that's what I reach for half the time. The other half I'm shooting my 39!

You have got to, got to, GOT TO, clean out these

rifles, from time to time.

All the used .22LR rifles I've picked up have had a

pound or two of crud in the mechanisms. The 60,

and most other common models, have explicit diagrams

and expanded drawings on the internet.

Yep, they do gotta be cleaned, and the ejector wire HAS to be checked, those 2 things are probably 80% of what causes failures in these rifles.

There are two divots on each side of the chamber...collect crud like crazy if you over-oil...
and even during normal use get some in there...its like the star chamber on the M-16...
clean after every range session/hunting trip where you fire...use a dental pick (Harbor Freight Tools $4)
same with the action, pull it out whole, scrub with a toothbrush, ONE DROP of oil applied with a fingertip over the whole action...
let Air-Dry, then re-insert...

That said, 22 LR rifles like the Marlin 60 and Nylon 66 take INSANE

amounts of abuse. I guess it depends if you like tubies.
