My buddy just bought a model 60SS and was wondering about the reciever. I know you can`t put cheap scope mounts on a blued gun `cause of the aluminum reciever. So what about the stainless version. Do you have to get good mounts and what is the reciever made of ? Also, what mounts do you folks recommend for blued & stainless guns ?

You have two choices, drill and tap it for a rail, and use weaver mounts.
Or go the cheap way and use dovetail mounts.
Mine dovetailed is about 2 MOA, so I think a rail might tighten that up a bit.

I`m surprised Marlin doesn`t drill and tap these reciever. They gotta know these recievers have issues with dove tail mounting systems on aluminum and you know they monitor this forum.
