    Hey, I'm from WI. I'm an Accountant. I shoot trap, but not recently. I'm looking for a Marlin Model 60 12 gauge, single shot. My dad had one. He bought it for $12 when he was 12. Light as a feather, fit perfect, kicked pretty good. Lol
  3. Dovetail to weaver adapter.

    Welcome New Members
    Howdy folks. New member here. I’m in need of some advice. I have had a marlin model 60 for 25 years. I decided I was going to freshen the rifle up with springs and put a redot I was gifted on it. But finding a dovetail to weaver adapter mount that fits has proved difficult. Has anyone been...
  4. Hi from Indiana Ohio border area

    Welcome New Members
    I just recently bought my first marlin, a model 60 for 100.14 even. My buddy said he wants to take me squirrel hunting. I was raised by a single mother, so I’ve never been hunting, but I’ve been raised around guns. It’s the squirrel model that has the squirrel etched on the stock. The only issue...

    Photos of Custom Marlin's
    Here is the latest makeover of the Model 60 rifles that were given to me. This one is a Revelation 120. It seems to have more metal parts instead of the plastic thats often used for takedown of the rifle. The front sight is dovetailed in. Nice model overall. This rifle was in bad shape. The...

  9. Model 99 tune-up

    Hello all. I tried to shoot my father's (originally purchased new by my grandmother) and it would not feed or shoot. It took about 1.5 seconds to determine crud was at fault. The rifle barrel says "Marlin Model 99," so I assume it is a late 50's early 60's model. I am very sure this is the...
  10. Glenfield Model 60

    I just picked up a Glenfield Model 60 today but I seem to be having an issue getting the tube magazine out. This appear to be a 1974 model I think. Serial starts with 2637xxxx.

  20. New Model 60 stock finish

    I just bought a new Model 60 and was wondering if it is necessary to apply some type of protective finish to the stock such as Tru Oil or something similar? Also if I wanted to give it more of a glossy finish would it need to be stripped first? Any insight you could give is appreciated!
