Pics of my Marlin 60



Log in to see fewer ads
First I wanted to say hello and thanks for a nice and useful site/forum. I have been on here for a while, but, I think this is my first post. With this post you won't find any crazy great tips, just a guy wanting to show appreciation and a rifle that means a lot to me.

This is my Marlin 60 that was passed down to me from my late grandfather. I could not tell you how many varmints that he may have killed with this thing. He probably never even cleaned it while he had it

I receivied it in its original condition and still have the factory stock for it ( I plan to refinish it sometime soon just to have it ). I debated on making any changes to it but after a while and not shooting it as much as I would like I decided to upgrade it a little because I know he would want me to shoot it more. I typically shoot long range with my 308 and AR so I set this up in a fashion where I could shoot it a little further and push the limits of the 22 at longer distances as it is a great way to improve all around accuracy/precision.

Anyway, enough of that and here are a couple of pics of it.

Let me know if you have any quesitons or what you think of it. I would like to do a trigger upgrade from Mcarbo I believe it is.

Very nice weapon!

How far is "pushing a 22lr"?
Just curious how far you have reached out.

Welcome to the forum! That's a sinister looking 60. Where did you get the stock?

Deltagunner00, I have that stock too, and I love it. Sometimes the top part can have a tendency to warp a little, and open up at the front. If it does, just wrap a little velcro or paracord around it. How does it feel with that scope? I shoot mine with open sights, and I always thought that the comb was too low for a scope. I added some magnets to the buttstock on mine and I keep a flat screwdriver (that doesn't actually HAVE to look like a wolf) there. That way I can field strip it if need be.



It looks fantastic in green. You did a really fantastic job with it. Well done, and thanks for sharing.

I can hold slightly over a 2 inch group at 100 yards. 150 is the max I have been with it and opens up quite a bit. Its amazing what the wind will do to a 22lr at 100 plus yards. Thats why it is so fun. Its not near the same thing but its like shooting a 308 at 1000 yds.

Thank you! Its the ATI Dragunov stock and I purchased it from ebay. Around $35 I believe.

The green was done with a cheap rattle can. Thanks for the comments.

How is the cheek weld with a scope. It has a low comb/angle so wondered how it works with the scope?

Its actually not too bad. Its not as comfortable as most stocks but I can set up ok on it. I have a big noggin so I could see how some cant get the proper angle with it.
