Ran across a Marlin/Glenfield model 60 at a garage sale this weekend. It was a 1974 version in very good condition. Guy was asking $125. As everyone knows the model 60 is the most produced commercial firearm in history. They have been made for over 50 years and there are 15-20 million of them in circulation. They are cheap and certainly not rare. New ones still only cost $150 so a used one, even in good condition is not all that valuable. Everybody who wants one already has one or can buy them new comparatively pretty cheap. Twenty years ago you could buy used ones in pawn shops and out of the way gun shops for $20-30. I personally don't think a used one is worth more than $50 even at today's inflated rates. All you newbs, coming up during the last few years are conditioned to pay crazy prices for guns. However, even though I am old, I understand that times have changed so I was able, while biting my lip, to come up and get it for $85. I am not really all that big a fan of marlin 60. They are accurate and moderately reliable usually. However, compared to the Ruger 10/22 or even the Marlin 795, they are too long and being tube fed from the front they are awkward to load and reload. Like most budget rifles the sights on them suck. On the other hand they are classics and you can't really have too many 22 rifles. The question is what to do with it? I could throw a set of Tech Sights and a sling on it and make it into a training rifle for Appleseed (www.appleseedinfo.org). Or cut it down and make a shorter bbl survival rifle out of it. I could probably flip it to one of you newbs and make $20-30 off it. Here are two of my 60s in the photos. Just a few differences between the older style and newer style. The 74 Glenfield has all in one front sight, mag tube support while the 74 has one screw front sight and a separate dove tail mag support. The 74 has a metal trigger guard as opposed to the 83's plastic one. The trigger guard plate is also longer on the 74 than on the 83. The stock on the 83 is plain hardwood (birch) while the 74 has the pressed in squirrel design. Other than that they are pretty much the same.
