Thank you for having me on this forum. A little bit of how I got here. Right after sandy hook, I went looking for a ruger 10/22. There were none to be found. I have owned many guns over the years, but never a marlin. I started doing some research and the marlin 60 kept coming up. So a search on gunbroker revealed a 50 anniversary model new in box, so I bought it.ii could not be any happier. Puts my old 10/22 that I bought in 1976 to shame. This would rival my old winchester model 52 for accuracy. I put a Nikon 4x32 prostaff scope on it, and seems to be a very good combo.anyway I am so glad I found this. Now looking for a 39.
