Whats your opinion on it
Neither, I simply like it. Nothing special to me, but I wouldn't turn my nose up at it any day.
By the way, welcome to the forum! Stop by the intro threads and tell us a bit about yourself when you get the chance!
I have 2 model 60's and I just got a new mossberg tactical 22 today. There picky with ammo is my only problem with them
I've had an old Glenfield/Model 60 since the early 70's,it was my first semi-auto rifle.There's no tellin how many rounds that have been fired out of that rifle.
It finally got so dirty that it wouldn't fire.I stripped it down and gave it a good scrubbing,and it shoots just like new.It sets next to the front door,ready to take care of any varmints,coyotes that come passing through the pasture in front of the house.
That's the problem people have with them. They shoot it till it gunked and don't work and then trash it or sell it away for cheap. That's how I got one of mine for free
It's a great gun.
Yea it's a great gun and can hold it's own with makers like remmington an the ruger 10/22. One of mine is topped with a 3-9x40 scope and can hit cans at 100+ yards all day long.
Love my model 60. Never had a problem, but I run premium ammo through it and clean it after I shoot it. Never jams. My wife has a 10/22. Always jams. (Sore subject with her ;-))
I've had mine for many years. Clean it after every range session. Very accurate. Shoots everything well, including CCI Subsonics and Aguila sub sonics. I bought my son a Winchester 190 that was so dirty it took 4 hours to clean. Paid $190.00 for it and a Topper deluxe 20ga. The 190 is a PITA to reassemble.
One of mine loves the remmington thunderbolts and the other hates them. The one that hates them I shot some through it and I had to take it completely apart and get the one that mushroomed in the action out. And then they broke the recoil spring. but it's fixed now. By chance does anybody have a tactical 22
I love my M60. Drilled a fox squirrel at 60 yards about a hour ago.
I like my Model 60SB - but I have other .22 rifles I like more.
The one I have is the house brand Western Auto. Still shoots good and has harvested a lot of tree rats for me over the years.
I found a sweet stock TGIF it that looks like a drangov sniper rifle
For it not TGIF
I've got a couple 60-series, including a Glenfield 99-G,
and a few of its box-mag bretheren...the 795, 989-M2, etc...
I love older Marlins, especially pre-2000...I'm still watching the new ones carefully....
quality kinda went sideways in 2005-2010, then the new 2011 MM-serial batches from Ilion had some initial QC issues.
But the stuff that's rolled off the line in the last two months is at least better than the 2005-2010 & the stuff they made in 2011.
New manufacturing lines take time to get to a proper level of competence...this year's model 60's & 795's should be much better.
Just pay CLOSE attention to the MFR'ing Dates...
i really like mine, it's a pre 1982 model 60 i believe, and it shoots great with everything i have put through it so far. very accurate and reliable. picked up at a gunshop for $75 and it functioned perfectly, but looked like crap. i took it apart, refinished the stock and metal, removed the open sights, bought a set of grooved receiver rings, mounted a 3-9x40 scope i had from another rifle. i have less than a $100 in the rifle, and looks bunches better. there are some good deals out there on these rifles, as they made millions of them, and still make them.
For me it's both. I love the accuracy but hate the reliability(ymmv). When I take it shooting I also take a brass dowel to drop down the barrel if a shell gets stuck. I'm not hating, just spoiled by my 10/22.
I want a 10/22 anybody know what a good used ruger 10/22 is
