Not necessarily. Sometimes you get more than you paid for. Years ago I had a Remington bolt action .22 rifle I think it was a 722? but not sure, it was 15 or so years ago, with a decent scope, paid $20.00 for it at the pawn shop because it had a cracked stock.
With CCI "Mini Mag" ammo, I was getting 3/4 inch groups at 100 yards - with the cracked stock.

I don't know that someone should avoid a Marlin model 60 I have been shooting the same Marlin Model 60 for 30 years and the only problem I have had is a worn out recoil buffer and that happened after firing countless thousand rounds through the rifle.

I must second the beretta mod 21 bashing; bad gun all around. I have a walther p-22 that has worked fine since day 1, and I bought it USED! Hasn't even seemed ammo sensitive; it eats everything I throw in it. I had the worst Ruger single six ever built... it would throw shotgun style patterns with any kind of ammo, lr or mag. Turns out the bore tightened in the middle and flared at both ends. Ruger claimed it was "in spec" as long as the bore was larger than .220 and smaller than .230. I had a taurus PT 22 that was crap, bore was so rough it would lead excessively at the 20-30 round mark and cease to function, a Rohm 22 short revolver that was the most horrible handgun of all time (it actually failed to put down my daughters terminally ill pet hamster! The barrel was pressed to the critters head and the gun still missed!), an intratec tec 22 that was great for a brief time and then fell apart and numerous centerfire guns that were pure excrement. Ain't shootin fun?

Oh, don't get me wrong. I loved my Marlin Glenfield model 60. Bought it in high school and shot many thousands of rounds through it. IMHO is a decent gun for the moneybut there are better available in the same price range. I still have the model 60 in the back of the safe just have not shot it in many years. You can do much better. The stainless version has a steel reveiver ( I believe) and is likely a better choice.

The Marlin I bought is one of those I wish I hadn't. Clean, it shoots ok. After 30 or so rnds. it has a bad habit of not recycling. Gotta dig the shell out. It gets gummed up to darn'd easy. I replaced the fireing pin spring to no avail. The stock peeled and I redid it. (looks better than new) I've had it around 15 years.

Pounce, When cleaning your Marlin do you take it all the way down to clean?
