    Glenfield 10

    I just bought a Glenfield model 10 today. The date code puts it being made in June of 1967. It is a neat gun. Does anyone have any info on this line of rifles?

    The Glenfield model 10 was made from 1966 to 1978. It was a continuation of the 100G which was the same thing as a Marlin model 100.

    Very little difference except the model number. SW

    Thanks for the info. I couldn't find anything on this gun. So my gun is from the 2nd year of the model production. It seems like a solid gun. I hope to be able to shoot it next week. Do you have any idea what this gun might have sold for new in 1967?

    That year, single shot 22s were selling in the 42.00 range full retail. SW

    Thanks for that. They sold for more than I thought they would. I was figuring in the $25-30 range. This gun has such beautiful wood on it. I can't believe this was a low end gun with the piece of wood this gun has on it. I have a Remington 514, a Browning A5, a Remington 1100 and 3 Remington Wingmasters. They all have nice wood, but the wood on this little Glenfield 10 is better looking than the wood on any of these other guns I own.

    Marlin never wasted anything so if some decent wood was left over from another model & it would work, it was used until gone.

    Which worked out well for you!! SW

    Hello ARFLY - The 100G (and then the Glenfield10) were less expensive versions of the Marlin Model 101, not the Marlin 100. I can understand the confusion, but I’ve seen the mistake often enough to think there must be “price guides” that misstate the lineage. The Marlin100’s (which went out of production in 1959) and 101’s were both single shot .22’s, but the receivers and bolts were totally different. The catalog (list) price in ’67 for the Glenfield 10 was $19.95 and the walnut stocked, 24k gold plated triggered, Marlin 101 was $23.95. They all shoot the same, which is to say, pretty good for the money! GoodLuck - RounderRick

    Well I finally got it cleaned up and got the wood refinished. I can't wait to go shoot it. I put a 4x32 scope on it. The 3x9 I got for it would not clear the bolt. Here are some pics. The pics really do not do the wood justice. It looks way better in person. I think this gun would have been a steal at $20, even in 1967.
