Fantastic rifle. It was second on my list behind my S&W 15-22.

I'm currently shooting 2 of them. A standard Model 60 from the 80's, and a newer 50th Anniversary Edition Deluxe Model, with a checkered Walnut Stock, nice rubber butt pad, gold trigger, and special serial numbers. What I find amazing about this gun is the fact Marlin has made and sold over 11 MILLION of them! If you think about that for a minute, it amounts to over 602 rifles a day, 7 days a week, for 50 years! Some places like Davidson's still have the 50th Anniversary Deluxe Models still avaliable, and they really aren't that much more money for a much nicer looking gun.

what he said..^.. theres a reason they sold so many. they are a great semi auto .22. very accurate right out of the box. easy to maintain. personally i would start with a bolt action rifle to start teaching with. but thats your call. the marlin60 is a good rifle.

I still have mine from the early 1980's. It is a great little rifle. I did have to replace the buffer in it recently. I added some peep sights by tech sights.

You'll love it!

Got mine for $39 new in 1966. (I think)

You have several years of fun ahead of you.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I have an ar 15 and several shotguns and other rifles and my Marlin 60 has to be my favorite gun to shoot . I recently added a dragonuv style stock and a 3-9x zoom scope. It it very accurate, dependable, and affordable to shoot. With routine cleaning I have shot over ten thousand rounds and I rarely have problems with jamming. A great gun I would reccomend to anyone, especially younger shooters.

Hear what you are saying about learning on a bolt action. I figure I will just load one at a time to begin with and start loading more once he is more competent. I realize it's not the perfect gun for loading one at a time but I figure he can grow into it more.
