I just bought my first rifle yesterday (not new to guns, only new to rifles). It is a Marlin 60 with a Bushnell Sportsview 3x-9x scope. It is used, but in good condition. According to what research I've done on the gun, based on the serial number and an article online, the gun was made in 1988. I -paid $210 for it and that was with 200 rounds of ammo.
