Model 60 find



Log in to see fewer ads
This weekend, I took my buddy to his club’s gun show. He had been cooped up for a few weeks following hip replacement.
Arriving late for the show and not finding anything that interested me, I was beginning to think the only positive to this trip was getting him out of the house.
Then on the next to last table was this 1976 Glenfield 60 which had obviously been taken care of . The price was right and now I own it.











The rifle had a Pentax Gameseeker scope, which was surprisingly bright and clear.

Nicely done. You failed to mention that it was a squirrel stock. Very desirable.

Well done! That's a beautiful rifle.

May we ask how much that time machine cost you?

Thanks guys. Don't hate me, Carbine, but I picked it up for $100, his asking price. Got home and test fired it, with no problems with ejection and reloading next round.

Great find and a 1976 price I bought my 1977 oak leaf stock Glenfield from Kmart for 80 bucks.

Great score. Had I been there and seen that I'd have whipped out my wallet so fast it would've left a scorch mark on my posterior.

Nice! The Pentax scope is worth more than you paid, and the rifle is worth more than you paid as well.

That's a clean one. That would have been a good price a couple years ago, now they are hard to find at three times the price.
