    I paid $39.99 for my 60. I can't remember the year but guessing mid 1980's. It still looks good and functions great. How remlin could mess this model up baffes me.

    Not sure about other areas, but there are plenty of used "real" Marlin Model 60's in this area. There's usually at least a couple in most pawn shops, and at the gun shows, there is a vendor that generally has about a dozen for sale.

    From all the horror stories out there, I just don't see myself buying a new one.

    I have been a life long shooter for 65 years and have only sent my first gun back to the manufacturer 3 years ago. I had a scout from Ruger that was only making contact on about 1/8 of the right side lug. When I was lapping the lugs I noticed a crack in the bolt. Bought a savage with a 6lb. accutrigger, never even tried to shoot it. Purchased a Smith Victory when I was cleaning it initially shards of stainless steel fell out of the bore. Bought a AR upper that blew the recoil spring and buffer out of the stock because of an undersized barrel bore. The 336 remlin I bought had a good action on it but shot patterns instead of groups so I didn't shoot it for years. Its only problems were a bent magazine tube, a bore so rough that it snagged patches and wood so far out of speck that I had to work a 1/4 inch off the forend to reassemble.

    The manufacturers I have dealt with all fixed the problem 1st try but not Remington.

    I believe I have bought my last new rifle.

    I own one remlin, a 795 made in Kentucky barrel stamped. Put a ton of rounds through it, all types of ammo brands. Running good still. Have a 1991 .357 marlin and 1974 glenfiled/marlin squirrel stock 60. Prefer older but the 795 has run fine..
