Picked Up A Marlin 600 Today
 
A buddy of mine had a Marlin 600 for sale for $150. It has not been fired much, the furniture is in excellent condition, one or two minor blemishes on the bluing. Gold trigger (dang plastic trigger guard though:() and gold lettering on the barrel. Shoots like a dream with the CCI Blazers. Not so much with the Winchester Super X Didn't try anything else I have in stock right now though. Came with a nice new canvas rifle case too.

Are these worth much compared to a Madel 60? This one is a Marlin, rather than one of the "brand name" rifles that Marlin popped out for other companies and branded them accordingly. From what I recall the "off brands" were worth less than the Marlins.

I'll be damned. Looked it up on Wikipedia and here's what it says:
Quote:

Marlin Model 600 - Made specially for Big 5 Sporting Goods between 86 and 89. This model is very rare because of the short production run, and little info is known. Came with a supremely durable gold-plated metal trigger instead of the standard polymer trigger, and a stainless steel breech bolt in lieu of the blue steel breech bolt on the Model 60.
