Sight elevator question 1988 Model 60 wide or narrow?



Log in to see fewer ads
Hi All,

What a great site! Glad I found it.

I have a question, I picked up an old 1988 Model 60 the other day that that needs some love but it's a straight shooter and refurbing guns is fun!

It's missing the sight elevator. I have discovered there's a "narrow" and a "wide" elevator I can order but no one specifies whcih one they sell or refer to old model or new model. I think I need the "wide" one but thought I'd ask.

Thanks, Southpaw62

Hi Southpaw62, welcome to RFC! I just checked my 1988 Marlin 60 & I have the "wide"elevator. My rifle is bone stock so it's a good bet yours is wide as well.

I only have the narrow in my parts box , otherwise I'd send you one.

Hey, thank you triplebike!

My 60 had that old scope on it so I didn't even notice the elevator was gone until I got her home and started taking it down. I bet those elevators fall out or get lost all the time given their just held in by pressure.

I'm looking forward to shooting it.

How do you like your's?

Still breaking it in. I have about 700 rds through it. Being one of the Marlin "Holy Grails" (long barrel , LSHO & 18 rd tube capacity) I will never give it up. Here's the story behind it.

Thanks oldcrotchety (nice handle ;-)

Yeah it looks a little tough on the outside but clean inside, got it from a private party, it was his Dad's. Call me sentimental but my Dad's guns are more precious to me then gold and will go to my kids, even a $100 model 60.

Wow! what a great story, I guess you never now what your gonna find, I hit the pawns and I have learned the hard way, if you think twice about it, it's usually gone by the time you come back. haha
