Twenty years or more go ,I think, I bought a used Marlin 60 for maybe 40.00. Prior to that I had a Marlin Glenfield model 60, that was stolen in 1976. this one had some minor rust on barrel. i thought I had cleaned it up. Got it out today for first time since way back then. Rust seemed worse, I took it apart and it never had been cleaned since before I bought it. Bad on me. I used a small brass brush and and lube on the rust and then Flitz in more lube. It's not perfect but won't notice it except upon real close examination. The bluing is really deep on this gun. It wasn't faded or anything after working on the rust. Really surprised me. I had though these guns had a lot of plastic in them. Nope the trigger assembly or trigger guard is metal as everyone else knew. It's a limited edition 6079. Still not worth much. The stock has been redone and not too bad. Broom handles always look like broom handles. The front sight has a little of the paint or other rubbed off on it and some where they had slid a scope into the groove on the receiver. What has anyone used to touch up or refinish the sight and receiver? I wonder if anyone makes a walnut stock for these guns and steel front sight? This might be the wrong forum so scoot it Mod if it is. The guns shoots accurately.
