Just a quick note to thank all of you in advance for helping me make a decision, whether you knew it or not! Seems my smarter half really likes her 10/22, but she has some scope issues with it and cannot quite seem to keep it zeroed for more than a few mags or so. I think it is a nice rifle but a little too new school for me.

So, I started doing some research on a plinker (always been more of a pistol guy), and lo and behold the more I read the more I liked the Marlin Glenfield 60. Went to gunbroker and found a nice "older" model ('71) and picked it up. Next, I needed to find a scope mount for it (thanks to some readers here), and I found a good one (RWS Lockdown). Finally, a 3-9X40 Nikon Pro_Staff and we are on our way!

Well< I finally got to take her to my outdoor range today and I am one happy Marlin owner. Had it nailed in 4 rounds, and she was true all morning.

SSBN welcome to Marlin Owners from NE Indiana. Enjoy that 60. I really have to bear down with my T-Bolt to beat my son when he shoots against me.:biggrin: Your wife will see the light when she realizes she doesn't have to feed those Ruger pita mags.

welcome to the crowd! I mainly have been a small bore pistol guy and have found nice folks and very helpful info on this site.With their help I settles on a model 60. careful shopping and a good price too. It is a honey of a gun, only think I am probably going to do is replace the scope that came with it for a nice nikon . good luck and straight shooting.
