    They're usually around $100-$125 in my neck of the woods. They vary from area to area and their condition can mean a lot. And the Glenfields are generally not as expensive as the regular Marlin 60 because it was considered a budget version of the Marlin 60. That doesn't make them a bad rifle. It usually makes them a good deal actually. BTW does it have the last shot hold open feature where the bolt stays open after the last shot is fired? If so those models are worth more. No matter how you look at it you got a good deal though. You could part out the rifle if there was a problem with it of some kind and you would get you money back. But most likely it will serve you well for years to come and you won't want to sell it for any reason. The main reason they are cheaper is because there are millions of them around. Supply and demand and all that. But they are great guns.

    Post up some pics when you get a chance, we LOVE Gun Pron!! :D

    And there's tons of info on re-furbishing Marlin 60's at RFC & Marlin Owners as well...
    you'll probably need a J&P Springs kit & a new Black Buffer (white one tends to get hard & fall apart...)
    that's the least I do to Any used semi-auto...new springs & buffer mean reliability!!

    It being a Glenfield means its Pre-LSHO, also means Old-Style Marlin 60 where parts suppliers are interested (Numrich in particular)...

    I wouldn't do anything until you run about 1k rounds through it.

    Nope, would probably enhance its value greatly.

    Seriously, if a rifle is worth less than $1000.00, chances are you can't hurt it by fixing it up...

    yes if it's in good condition and working properly, then yes it's worth $90. i'd pay that much for one. the older Marlins held 18 rounds in the tube and the newer ones only hold 14.

    also some information i gathered about the M60 is that they added the LSHO feature in the mid 1980's IIRC, and many were marked Marlin Glenfield up until the early 1980's.

    Yep :)

    Sounds like you are about to become a Fixer of Old Beater Rifles...which is both good and bad...lol

    My Personal Preference is towards the 18-rd mags with LSHO...as they've got the most updated parts & are the easiest to upgrade...
    there are FOUR styles of the Marlin 60 trigger-guard, the LSHO Square-back being the latest evolution...
    also having the longer barrel, which means longer sight radius...which means better precision with OEM sights...which means more accuracy!

    First thing, do you like wood or synthetic stocks?? Boyd's has a nice selection of Woods...
    http://www.boydsgunstocks.com/Repla...=9&cat=124&show=12&page=1&brand=Marlin 60 795

    Second, J&P Springs will become another home for you...
    https://www.jnpgunsprings.com/product_info.php?cPath=29&products_id=219

    Third, so will Numrich...(where you will get replacement Buffers and other neat things like the Marlin Adjustable Rear Sight)
    http://www.gunpartscorp.com/catalog/Models.aspx?catid=310

    Fourth...bookmark this site also...DIP (Diversified Innovative Products)
    http://www.diproductsinc.com/Products.aspx?CAT=3603

    There's actually a TON of repair info available on Marlin 60's...both at Marlin Owners and Rimfire Central...
    RFC is set up a wee bit better for specific searches...
    And they've also got the most Updated version of my Marlin House Brands listing, which gets regular updates as we discover more about Marlins!
    That Cross-Reference covers 99.9% of Marlins made for Big Box Stores...the only ones not listed are the ones not discovered yet!
