Default Update to Marlin M60 makeover!

well i got the rings in yesterday, and got the scope mounted. shot it and got it sighted in. scope works great on this rifle. sighted it in at about 15 yards just to get it on paper, (don't have a bore sighter yet!) and then shot it at about 100 yards and noticed it hitting about 6-8" low. i will have to measure off 50 yards and get it dialed in later. here is what it looks like withe scope mounted.

thanks carp. i really enjoyed giving this rifle a new lease on life! walmart had marlin m60 w/ 12 rnd tube, 19" barrel new for $157+tax. i bought this one for $80, cleaned it up, refinished the stock, bought a set of rings, mounted a scope i already had laying around, and still less than $100 in it. i'm very happy with it so far. this is an older m60 w/ 18 rnd tube and the 21" barrel and mechanically it was in good shape, so i thought it would be a good candidate for a simple makeover. i am going to start looking for some new projects now, like and older winchester m94 in 30-30.
