Marlin model 60, the "other" .22LR rifle. He told me what he paid for her - her name is Abigail, Brad tells me - and if he hadn't picked it up, I would have been sorely tempted at that price. I think Brad put it best, though:
Yep. There's a definite appeal to the model 60. I picked one up many years ago, a stainless model with a laminate stock, and I found it to be supremely accurate. The great part about the tubular magazine, too, is that you're not tempted to go out and buy a gazillion magazines for it like with certain Rugers... :) There's still a wide variety of modifications that can be made, with triggers, sights, and new stocks the most common. There's even a bullpup stock - on Amazon, no less!She's a basic rifle. Clean. No frills. Nice lines. Simple. I don't want a whiz-bang tacticool .22 mall ninja special. I like Abby just the way she is. Honest, original.
Enjoy her, Bradley - she'll always treat you right!
That is all.
