Awsome channel gunblastdot, i am getting the new Marlin 60SN mine don’t have the wood stock mine got the plastic stock and blue barrel,and mine come with a 4×20 rifle scope,i love your review on the marlin 60, 50th Anniversary rifle that was awsome.and the review on the 10/22 was good to that a nices gun she is will build like the Marlin 60 i love her better the Marlin.hope you like my channel i hope to have some video on my gun later on, and some hunting video, i will make with my new gun.
Mine holds like 17 i think but mine is real old, my dad had it when he got out of high school.
Mine shoots any quality 22 LR ammo.
i got this as soon as it came out
My first gun! My grandfather got it for me when I was 13.
I really enjoy all your posts, Jeff. I bought one of these a few years ago and saw you were reviewing it so had to check you out. It IS a really nice rifle. Saw it at the local BiMart here in the PacNW for $192 and had to have it. Took it to the range and proceeded to shoot a couple 7/16" groups at 50 yds. Couldn’t believe it. My Ruger 10-22 wouldn’t come anywhere near that. Ridiculous accuracy for a semiauto 22. This one will definitely get the gophers!
Mine has a coin indented in the stock. What does that indicate?
We have one from 1982. Runs like a champ.
Tubular 22 magazines are exempted.
Excellent choice. I also prefer that tube mag.
No, I haven’t, but any gun will jam if it gets filthy enough.
Bought mine in ’77 new.
I have a Marlin 60SN. It’s a great rifle except for the receiver paint comes off too easily. The receiver metal is too soft also (I actually had an ejecting round gouge out some metal from the receiver. I wish Marlin sold a steel receiver version.
How come your barrel only 19"?
Mine is 22" same Marlin 60??
Why did they cut few inches short for?? to make longer Stock?
They have made various lengths over the years. Most prefer a shorter barrel, and in a 22 LR, sixteen inches is close to optimal.
Jeff, do you prefer the tube magazine to the detachable? If you had to load it in a hurry wouldn’t that be a disadvantage?
It was not.
just think how beautiful the 100th anniversary will be 🙂
CCI is good stuff, and I would gladly use it in that rifle.
I was taught to never rely upon a mechanical safety.
why has marlins quality gone down nowadays i own 5 marlins and i can say my best one is the oldest.
I can load a tube mag faster than I can load a detachable mag. If you carry a spare mag, the reload will be faster, but the tube holds almost twice as many to start with. I greatly prefer the tube mag myself.
I hear you Wayne from tucson I have and 1981 marlin model 60 and its twice as good
The quality has severely suffered. Hopefully, they will get it worked out soon.
mine holds 16 and 17 with one chambered. recoil buffer is broken, im hoping thats why its constantly jamming…. its clean….. =) the dragonov stock for this gun makes it look gr8
Man thats some awesome guitar picking..
what do you think about the savage 64 .22lr ?
I am not a fan of that dovetail rail scope mount since its not too accurate but it does the job. I have one that i believe was dated around 1957. Though with Winchester ammo it does not like to cycle the long rifle ammo and will jam up quiet often despite cleaning the heck out of the action. So i am thinking about trying CCI high velocity ammo and some CCi stinger but I have been told by other shooters on YouTube that CCI ammo isn’t recommended for these older .22 rifles. Any advice?
I just cleaned my old 6080 ltd edition up, field stripped it and went over everything with a brass brush and gave it a good cleaning. Hope it stops jamming up. It was filthy though. Have you any experience with this gun jamming every couple shots?
I didn’t know Marlin was doing these 50th anniversary when they out there.
What I really wonder is if they’re going to do a 60th Anniversary edition for the Model 60 next year.
That would be nice!
the 10-22 is garbage in comparison, the marlin is half the price and twice as accurate….
I salute the Marlin 22lr model 60 for the getting me into the interest of firearms.It was during the summer of 1985 when I was a 12 year old kid.A friend’s dad took acouple of us kids living in this apt complex shooting out in the field(an hour drive from the city we were living in).
Does Ethan have to wear safety glasses?
@SuperCajuncoonass because you can’t engage the safety if the hammer is not cocked.
I love the rifle. Nice addition.
mine wont cycle properly with the cheap federal ammo
Two month ago, I purchase a Marlin LR .22 model 60, at Walmart for a great price. I tuck it to the range a week after that, and it is incredible accurate with just the iron sights, thanks to the Marlin’s “Micro groove barrel”. The reason I purchase the Marlin 60, was because many years ago I used my Uncle’s Marlin 60, and I loved it! Specially its accuracy. I prefer it over the Rugger 10/20, because of the advantage of the 14 rounds tubular magazine. But! I was disappointed in a few things on my new Marlin 60.
I notice that the screws are Not like the standard flat-blade or slotted screws, commonly use in simple Woodworking application. The screws where “Allen” type (hex socket screw) and they were not tight, they ware loose out of the box. (Remind me of Stevens Shotguns)
I also notice that the two Philips screws at the end of the Stock look like they were excessively tight and damage the screws. The rifle came out of a box… but it looks like a used rifle. The wood is beautiful with no scratches… Thanks Goodness! The mechanism was too tight; specially the bolt release, but that I can understand… its “New”… (I hope its “new”).
I started researching the Net, and I found out that Remington Acquired Marlin on “2008”, and not just that… that Remington is doing a piss job on the Marlin’s rifles. That remind me, why I prefer Mossberg Shotguns and not Remington’s. I heard horrible things on “YouTube” of serious bad quality control issues and sloppy gunsmith work.
For the price I paid… I’m going to keep my Marling. But! If I knew, what I know now… I would rather purchase the Rugger 10/20. As a matter of fact, I was going to buy a Marling for my Son this summer… yea right, his going to love his Rugger 10/20.
Well… the good thing is that I have my own Web-site and I can alert people of this things, I can use YouTube and other resources for the same matter. Thanks for reading.
my dad gave his old marlin model 60 from when he was a kid im never gonna get rid of it
I "fell in love" with my Squirrel/Glenfield(Marlin) yrs. ago. Many .22 rifles have followed her; but I can say after nearly 30 yrs. "the Squirrel" is still my favorite. She has regularly eaten a steady diet of 40 gr. ammo of all flavors for many years without any problems. I’m either blessed; or she’s a "fine" rifle. I lean toward the latter. 18+1 capacity with a BB gun scope(Lol) and accurate as can be at appx. 60-70 yds. Thanxs for posting video!
I like anything Jeff does. He is accurate with his descriptions plus he talks so I can understand what the heck he’s saying. Sounds like central Kentucky but I could be wrong. I do enjoy the vids. Thanks Jeff.
Good stuff. I’ve got one of the game series model 60s on layaway. Gonna pick it up in the next couple of weeks. Gotta replace my Savage 64 which is getting a bit long in the tooth.
@fryyourass28 ..Being a big Pantera fan , I have to agree.
R.I.P. Dimebag .
That a side , good review on the American classic …the Model 60.
I have several , great little rifles indeed.
The Savage rifles seem to work very well, in my experience.
I love my marlin 39a. I hope I can get more in the future 🙂
can you put 22 short in it?
My very first .22 was an marlin model 60, 1980. It had a squirrel on the stock . Never had one problem with it what so ever . My wife fell in love with Marlin model 60 and we purchased a stainless steel one. I believe marlin model 60 is the most accurate (semi) right out of the box..I know people will agree and disagree , this is just my opinion .
Yes I can, but it will not cycle the action.
how much u pay
mines got a squirrel on each side of the handgrip.
