Marlin model 60 returned after 20 years
I folks had to share this story. I bought my first 22 when i was 15, the year was 1982. I had saved my money from the summer of odd jobs and on my 15 bday i gave it to my dad for this rifle. I already had at the time my 10/22 that my grandfather bougt me the day i was born, but dad was carful about letting me take it out of the house. So he bought me the marlin from a local hardware going out of business, it was 83.00 plus tax.
In 1992 i got it stolen out of my truck along with my winchester 1300. I thought it was gone never to be seen again. Last night my dad called and said he got a call from the local police department, my marlin had been found. I still cant believe it after all these years how. They said we should be able to get it back in about 30 days. I have the box and all the paper work i couldnt bring myself to get rid of it.
I dont know what shape its in but am excited to get it back. Just wanted to share a unbelivable story.
