Default Marlin 60

Great gun,I have 2, and they are my go to guns. I shoot Remington Sub-Sonics and CCI Standard Velocity and they eject fine. There is no reason to shoot the hyper velocity from them. Enjoy Cliff. BTW call if U have any questions 978-4240-7024

better yet, load the mag with cci quiets. they cost a little more than standard bricks and bulk ammo but they dont cycle the action and, as their name says, they are quiet.

when you go to the gun shop, take a peek at the used 60's. they will probably have at least a couple. reason being, some people are having issues with the new stock. issues very from simple fit and finish issues all they way to canted barrels. the older guns (pre-'88) have 18 round tubes and guns made between '85 and '88 have both, the 18 round tube and the last shot hold open. i'm running a '78 that i got with rust on the barrel for $100.

When I bought mine, the gentleman behind the counter recommended against lead ammo. He said it shaves off lead when it puts it in the chamber and will make them jam.

I've only ever run Federal Premium and CCI through mine. It's always shot great. Keeps the pests out of my garden at least.

he's full of it. all .22lr rounds are lead, some just have a plating. if it's going to shave, it'll shave that plating too. i've been shooting winchester wildcats and the only jams are from issues with the ammo's qc.

And at most that "plating" consists of a copper wash only about .0002" thick, (read 2/10,000ths.)

Excellent rifle. I have two 22 rifles and the marlin is great, the other is a ruger 1022 TD. The marlin always performs. I have the stainless model with the black stock.
As for the lead ammo shaving, it does and does a lot. I have to literally pry off the lead shavings after I take it to the range. I normally shoot between 500 and 800 rounds through it per trip.
The same happens to my ISSC MK22, the lead accumulates at the end of the muzzle, pretty cool stuff. However, it is not as bad with plated ammo such as the velocities and minima's.
Just my $0.02

forgot to mention that my 10yr old loves this rifle as he does my AR15 .223 with 24" barrel and he handles it well at 100yds LOL. He does like the simplicity of the Marlin though.

Marlin M60, one of the best semi auto 22 rifles out there for the price.are there better and more accurate semi auto 22 rifles than the Marlin? probably, but you will have to spend a bunch more to find out!

mine was made in the early 1980's, 18 round tube magazine, no LSHO feature, birch wood stock and marked as a Glenfield Marlin. picked it up at my LGS for $70, shot great, looked like crap. refinished the wood and metal, bought a set of rings for the grooved reciever, added a Simmons 3-9x40 scope i already had, and still less than $100 in it! shoots great. lots of fun too.
