There must be lots out there but you never see any postings, and a search only has an entry looking for a manual. Are that good or that bad that nobody talks about them? Just sayin

The 99 came out in 1959, slight forerunner to the 60 (1960).
But its more or less the same thing.

There is a list somewhere on all the variants of the Marlin 60...it is huge.
Literally no other rifle in history has as many changes and original manufacturer variants.
The stamped big-box alts alone would take someone quite awhile to organize,
unless they used my Marlin House-Brand Listing...hehehe

What I have learned about the model 60 is that Marlin made different length barrels and magazine tubes with different model numbers and names for marketing purposes and it worked. A Glenfield is no different than any other model 60 other than the name on the barrel. Some little differences but that is about it. I would love to collect every model 60 and the varients out there but it seems like it would be a waste of money because you would be buying the same rifle over and over for the most part.

At one time I was chasing down the different animal stocks...
and then I wanted the Medallions...
now I'm collecting Stainless Steel versions...to stick in Boyd's Stocks...

On the upside, its fun as heck just hunting Marlins and seeing what you can find :)
Get a "Hot List" of 4-5 favorites on a Business Card & drop 'em off at various gun stores & pawn shops...
it will be amazing what turns up sometimes :)

I joined this forum to find out more about my 99C. It was a Christmas gift to me in 1966. This is about the ONLY reference to this rifle I have seen.

It seems to have a walnut stock, but has a grooved receiver for tip off mounts. It was given to me with a Weaver V22 scope.
