Model 60 old style or new



Log in to see fewer ads
Gentlemen,

I own and shoot a Marlin model 60, serial number 11xxxxx, that I assume was manufactured in 1989. It sports a 22 inch barrel, a loading tube that extends almost to the end of the barrel and holds 15 rounds with the bolt closed. It has the last shot hold open feature and a plastic trigger guard assembly.

Maybe a dumb question, but is this an old or new style model rifle? I ask because I would like to replace the blade-like charging handle with a cylinder-shaped one that I see is available for new style rifles. And perhaps replace worn parts later.

Regards,

Benzo

Correct, that would be a 1989 production model. The changeover was around 82/83 so you have a new model.
