Here's my second Marlin ever, a 1987 Model 60. It has a (discontinued series) Leupold VX-I 2-7x Rimfire scope. Seems to be a Goldilocks rifle. Has occasional FTF/FTE and light primer strikes with ammo that's rated under 1200 fps. I can run these manually when there's a hangup. It runs flawlessly with ammo rated above 1200 fps, but then starts to have bolt cycling issues again with the hotter stuff, like CCI Velociters. The Velociters group really well though (approx 0.5-1 inch at 50 yards). Cycles fine with inexpensive CCI blazer and groups decently (1 inch at 50 yards), so that's what I'm sticking with. :)

Not sure why I never posted here. I have owned many variants of the M60. Most all fell in the lake. Many of these I refinished because they were trashed when I got them super cheap. Guess which one I still have. Well, it's not that hard to tell but...
