Hi all,


New to the forums but not to the Brand. I will go introduce myself in the designated area later.
I have a model 75 that is my pack gun. I don't seem to be able to find much information on this gun online.
I have read the usual with the relation to the model 60 and such. Can any of you other 75 owners Give me any info or testimonials about this gun? I have owned mine for about 6 years. Bought it used from an 18 year old kid who got it from his daddy. His dad got it as a B-day present as a child and passed it on. I got it with a bushman scope for $50.

Hello and welcome to MO.

One thing for sure,you got a deal on that one and the kid got more than he deserved.
About the only thing I can mention on the 75 vs 60 is the stock/barrel band can play havoc on accuracy if the band preasure is not adjusted properly.
I pulled the stock from mine and refinished it,after reassembly my 50yd groups went from 1.25 to over 3 inches.Took a little head scratching but it's back on target now.

How would the band change the accuracy? Also the kid most defiantly got more than he deserved. The rifle meant nothing to him. it road around in his truck tool box for who knows how long and was so dirty it couldn't fire a single round without the spent jamming. Took me hours to clean it up. He said it was junk. Once properly cleaned and oiled it fires flawlessly. He was just a punk kid that didnt have respect for his "toy's". I gladly paid the $50 to "save" it from him.

Uneven preasure on the barrel especially at that point can sometimes distort the harmonics of the barrel and effect accuracy.That's the only mentionable difference between a model 75 and 60 in my opinion.
I'm glad you rescued and revived an old soldier.As you have it back togather and it shoots good,I wouldn't be concerned about the band at all.A picture would be a big treat.

Here she is. I removed the scope because it is just not practical in the dense forest i hike. I added the sling, went with a traditional leather. Thought it fit the gun better than a newer fiber one. Both sling mounts where missing. That's why you may notice the front is not in the original location. And yes, that is a french flag, don't hate.

I was just given a Glenfield Model 75 to repair. Weapon will not feed properly. I have seen this problem before and plan to order a feed throat conversion kit from Numrich. It needs about $50 in parts to put it in proper working order. My question is: What is the worth of the rifle (it looks in pretty good shape other than the feeding problem)? This belongs to an elderly gentleman who does not have a lot of disposable income.

I picked up a 1975 Glenfield model 75 I restored needed a mag tube found 1 on ebay for 10 bucks used, works fine. btw holds 10 rounds but getting 10 in the tube a little tough so i put 1 in chamber and 9 in the tube. Great little rifle runs smooth and dead on target Had the same problem when i got this one, did a complete breakdown used brakekleen, hard to belive how much crud i got out of it! Oiled everything put it back together shoots anything i put in it even rem gold bulk that are real junk.
Good luck happy shootin:biggrin:​

OK, I opted to get the parts to repair the rifle, which I was finally able to get from Numrich. Problem is that there feed throat has two protrusions on the right side. My right side plate only has a hole for the rear protrusion. So my question is: should I just file off the additional forward protrusion on the right side or would I try to get a gunsmith who has the right tools to drill the hole needed on the right side plate?

File. The metal is soft and comes off easily.

Old post I know but had respond to the question as it’s asked frequently in reference to repairs,as in “ is it worth fixing?”if that’s the thing ,if it’s not fixed it’s not worth anything.I f he can’t afford to give him a gift ,do it for what he can afford or do it for free .it’s probably not going to cost more than $50 +- and if he’s an elderly gentleman he may very well have done something in his life that enabled you to own guns ,if not ,an act ,of kindness is good karma.I know bad business practice that’s why I ain’t in business or very well off in money.
