    Found a Glenfield Model 75

    I found a 1975 Glenfield Model 75 for $130.
    Supposed to be a tube mag version of a Model 70. 18" barrel, hardwood monte carlo stock.

    This was a promotional item and never was shown in the catalog and came with a Marlin Model 200 scope.

    The thing is, I can get a Marlin Model 60 at Dunhams for $150. Why spend only $20 less for a 37 year old Glenny?

    I could offer $100 and see what they say.

    Or I could save the $100 for a 336 in 30-30 or a double barrel side-by-side shotgun or a 22WMR rifle or some other Marlin I might need...

    I think my Marlinitus is flaring up....

    I guess it boils down to "what you want"?

    Sounds like you've got it bad! The way I look at it, you can buy a 60 anytime but Glenfield 75's are just going to get rarer & rarer. I go through the same thing whenever I see something I like.

    I want it all, and I want it now.

    kybeagle
    But I want a 60 and a 30-30 and a 22WMR and then I want a 45-70 or a 444 or a 450...it just goes on and on...

    But you are right, a 75 doesn't come along every day.

    I'm so confused.

    You came where to complain about buying a rifle to whom? MR we are a bunch of enablers and think like you. By all means get that Glenfield even if you don't buy another that ole rifle will be made better than 90% of the one made today.

    More like a short-tube model 60 (Old Style)...

    This was a promotional item and never was shown in the catalog and came with a Marlin Model 200 scope.

    Because that old Glenny will probably be a more reliable shooter than a new Marlin

    I could offer $100 and see what they say.

    Or I could save the $100 for a 336 in 30-30 or a double barrel side-by-side shotgun or a 22WMR rifle or some other Marlin I might need...

    I'd snag it, they're nice little carbines, and they're 50-state legal
    Heck, the scope would be worth half of the price
    Haggle, haggle, haggle...

    I'd use the old phrase..."How low can ya go on this rusty old POS??"
    A firearm should be a tool in the hands of a deadly weapon, not a deadly weapon in the hands of a tool.

    Sorry, I wasn't clear...the scope in no longer on the rifle. If it were on there, I'd be cleaning it instead of typing on the internet.

    I knew when I posted this that I wouldn't get too many "Don't buy it." responses.
    It is in pretty good shape. Crown looked good. Couldn't see the bore too well.

    Alright, alright, I'll go back and take a serious look at it. I was thinking 336 in 30-30 when I saw it so I wasn't on my game.

    Shhhh, did you hear that? There is a Model 75 trapped and locked to a gun reack. It's calling out..."Come get me..."
    I'm gonna call in the morning.

    People think I'm funny, because I always wear a mag-light (the 2x AA size) on my belt, but beside being able to see whenever I want to, I've found it to be very useful for inspecting bores. The top spins right off of the mag-light, and you can put the bulb almost into the breech, and inspect the bore from the muzzle end. I like to hold my hand over the muzzle first, just to be sure that there is actually light making it all the way through, but you get the idea.

    Pokey, why not just carry a bore light then? Anyway, doesn't matter. I was going to say to the OP that those little 75s are nice but the drawback is no LSHO on them. They are neat rifles..I have one right now. What I am doing with that is I bought a 60 assembly with LSHO and did a bit wood cutting and put the 60 LSHO in it and a LSHO type t/g. I have a hand guard from a 99M1 I am slapping on it and since the two different wood parts are different woods I am going to paint the stock and hand guard. When done it will look just like a 99M1 with LSHO and black stock. Oh, I have a 99M1 factory rear sight to put on it. Just a little project.
