    Model 60

    Hello everyone !

    I have a model 60 with a 21 inch barrel that has a magazine tube that does not extend to the end of the barrel. My question is...is there an option to/or add a full length magazine tube ?

    Thank you in advance for any and all advice !

    It would not be an easy mod. The magazine tube mounting band dovetail on the shorter tube is exactly where the opening in the long tube is. You would have to machine a new dovetail on the underside of the barrel where the mounting band is on the long mag tube.
    It might work if you used a Spee-D-Loader to fill the magazine tube instead of loading through the magazine port if you tried to use the existing dovetail, but I think the tube would be wobbly since it wouldn't be supported in its full curcumference by the mounting band. It also might be too easy to bend the free end of the mag tube, since it would have a lot more length unsupported.
    Just do what I did. Keep a look out for a good used long tube version. Then you can have two model 60's, or in my case, three.

    people always point out that the second amendment says nothing about hunting. i like to point out that it says nothing about need.

    model 60

    Thanks for all the replies about my model 60. I think I'll the advice of "Marvlin", and buy a model 60 that already has the longer mag tube. Because if one Marlin 60 is good...then two are better !100_1095[1].JPG

    Welcome to Marlin Owners. You say this now, but stay with us awhile. And you will be saying if 10 Marlins are good then 40 are even better. Don't ask me how I know this.

    Really, that's the answer to a *lot* of life's questions.
    Costco should sell bullets in those bins, like walnuts. Or you could buy two five gallon buckets of bullets, shrink-wrapped together.
