Marlin model 60 back in the EARLY 1980's (maybe '79). I still have it, but it has new sights. I replaced the buffer this year.

first semi auto rifle i owned, was the Springfield Armory M1A back in the later 1980's. sweetest shooting rifle i ever owned! and very dang accurate too!

as much as i like my AR, i would trade it in a New York minute for another M1A!

Marlin model 60 when I was 10. A friend of my parents needed help on a siding job during the summer and the Marlin was my payment for helping him.

It shot great to start with but then tended to hang up a lot. It might of had something to do with me filling down down the sear to make it fully auto? It would spit out 3 or 4 rounds and then hang, but those were a fun three or four rounds!!!
