    Marlin Model 60, 50th Anniversary Edition

    These are some quick pictures I took this morning of my new Marlin Model 60, 50th Anniversary Edition .22. I'm pretty pleased with the stock. It's a nice looking .22 for the money. The Walnut looks so much richer than the Birch. They only made a total of 10,998 of these rifles in 2 production runs. The first run was Serial Numbers 000 to 999. Originally that was all they were going to produce. They got so many requests they made a second run with 4 digit Serial Numbers from 0000 to 9999. There will be no more produced with Black Walnut stocks.

    When you consider that Marlin has produced over 11,000,000 (11 MILLION) of these rifles since 1960, that accounts for less than 1/10th of 1% of total production. I have been looking for an early model with a Walnut stock, but never had any luck finding a nice one. Those who have them in nice condition are not interested in selling them, and if you do find one they are willing to let go, it's usually pretty beat up and requires a major refinishing job.

    I have a standard, Birch stocked Model 60 for over 20 years now, and it has never had a single malfunction in thousands of rounds. These rifles really perform well. Next on my list is one more, a Laminated stock Stainless Steel Model 60. What I found really amazing is if you take the entire 11,000,000 rifles produced in the last 50 years and divide it out, it comes to over 602 rifles produced and sold per day! That's 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year, for 50 straight years! Quite an unbelievable feat for a single model .22 rifle. Bill T.

    For those who may be interested in obtaining one of these rifles, these are the added features of the Anniversary Edition Model 60 over the standard Birched stocked model:

    1.) Walnut stock complete with checkering and Marlin inletted "Bullseye".

    2.) Sling Swivels installed.

    3.) Gold trigger.

    4.) Rubber butt plate instead of plastic.

    5.) Folding Buck horn rear sight.

    6.) Filled Gold engraving on barrel, (model number), and on receiver serial number and "50th Anniversary Edition" on side of receiver.

    Re: Marlin Model 60, 50th Anniversary Edition

    When you consider that these rifles are selling for only about $60.00 more than the standard model, they are an incredible value. Where can you buy a brand name, semi auto, Walnut stocked .22 rifle with the features this rifle has for the low $200.00 range? Fantastic value for the money. Bill T.

    The 60 DLX with walnut stock is a production run rifle for anyone interested. Not quite as neat or rare as the Anniversary model but pretty all the same and as billt said, one heck of a value.

    Re: Marlin Model 60, 50th Anniversary Edition

    From a collectability standpoint the first run guns will be worth more as time passes. But overall you simply cannot miss with these guns, simply because of their nice features for the money, and the fact they are some of the last guns to come out of the New Haven plant. That alone will add to their value over time. Bill T.

    The Model 60 life is too short to shoot anything else.
