Bought the M60 on Wednesday and got it out to the range today. Did a cleaning B4 shooting. Took 4 different kinds of ammo. Federal Target Grade was almost OK, Browning BPR was way better and the cheap Monarch (Academy house brand) appeared to be the best. This was good news as my CZ 455 doesn't like the Browning or Monarch. Didn't even shoot the CCI SV as that's what the CZ really likes. 250 rounds with one FTFeed at around 220. I was more than pleased with reliability and accuracy. Wasn't really shooting for accuracy just But you know how it is. This was the best $170 I ever spent. Now time for a good cleaning.

Welcome from Texas. All the Marlin/Glenfield .22 semi-autos are like the Energizer Bunny they just keep goin'! You made a wise decision by trying several different ammos.

Thanks for replies.... now I need best cleaning video. Any suggestions?
Because .22 ammo is so dirty, you'll get different opinions on how much oil to use - anywhere from almost none to a light coat. But it's generally accepted heavy oiling is not necessary and could lead to crud building up faster.

Sometimes we just have the most fun with a good .22!
I have a few M-60's & love them. Truth is, I probably shot nearly 15-20 times more rimfire than CF!
Glad you had a great day - easy to do with the Model 60!
