    Pictured below is my favorite Marlin rimfire rifle...a Model 80C bolt action that is dated circa 1960.

    She is chambered for .22 short / long / long rifle...and is "clip" fed...holding 7 rounds.

    My newest addition...a Glenfield Marlin Model 60 chambered in .22 long rifle semi-auto with an under barrel 17 round tubular magazine manufactured in 1980...in almost pristine condition. It's topped off with a vintage K-Mart 4x15 scope that will be replaced with something a little easier to see through...

    Weelllll,
    Not everytime, ;)

    This Marlin 60 ,aint a shoulder thumper, but it its a turtle gettin machine. Its early 80s vintage and like new.
    One of the most accurate rifles I own.

    Luck Im sure, but last year, I killed a groundhog with it at 125 yards. He ran 10 ft and dropped in his tracks.

    Nah, when I shoot em, its in the middle of the pond.
    They float about 15 minutes then sink.
    Next time I see them (about 3-4 days).....lets just say they aint fit for consumption.:eek:

    Only Marlin I ever owned went 0 for three on deer. I missed a couple of deer, my BIL missed one and my best friend missed one with that rifle. A LGS said the barrel was crooked, sold the dang thing 1989. Have not owned one since, no plans to change the status quo.

    Just proves the old bromide, YMMV.

    Just wondering , how you sighted it in , or zeroed it.

    Where exactly did it hit paper when you sighted it.

    Mine shoot VERY accurate.

    I am not knocking all Marlin guns, I know there hundreds of thousands of them that work great.

    But on the one I had, the rear sight was drifted as far as you could safely do so to get on target. My father bought the gun from a pawn shop and the problem may have been caused by a previous owner abusing the gun. But that Rifle remains the only Marlin I have ever owned. I have no current valid reason to go find a Marlin. Somebody says they have model 60 or a guide gun for sale at a screamingly good deal, well maybe.

    If I wanted to add a lever gun, I would hunt down a BLR.
