    Brother in law's Glenfield 65

    Hey folks! Fired this on Sunday. It's a dream, no issues even as dirty as it is. I'm planning on taking it down and giving it a deep clean at some point. This belonged to my late brother in law, he didn't seem particularly proud of it, but he was a very meek man.

    Wondering who or if anyone has any experience with the Glenfield? What about age? Serial number 26303xxx.

    Any info would be appreciated. I'm trying to get info to add to my spreadsheet for the next owner. (next generation)

    Thanks everyone.

    I don't know much about these little Glenfield .22's. My cousin had one and we did a lot of plinking and gopher decimation with it and it seemed up to the task. Nice little rifle that you have!

    Nice! I can tell you it is a 1974 model... But I'm pretty sure a Model 65 is an older bolt action...

    Hey S,

    Swell looking Glenny you have there!

    Hope you got plenty of .22 ammo!

    Thanks, Scorp
    I'm lost then. Did they re-barrel these rifles with other model parts? If so, then what would this be?

    I did find reference to a Model 65 Golden 50 that looks like yours...

    I found it in Brophy's book...

    It is a Model 60 Glenfield except for the brass magazine tube and was made for the Oklahoma Tire & Supply Company as a promotion and relabeled the Model 65 Golden 50. It is not a regular catalog item...

    Funny thing though... I can only find it referenced as a 1968 model... Someone may have changed the receiver to a later one...

    Wow, see? That is really interesting. Scorp, you really are on top of your A game.
    Are these normally fitted with a steel mag tube? And seriously, was a small adaptation like this really necessary just for a chain store?

    Dang, I wish I could ask him where he got this franken. I have to admit, it shoots better than most of my 22s. I love the sights, Boring but spot on.
    Thanks again, Bart. You are a true asset.
