    I bought one about 6 months ago and love it. Mine has a heavy barrel on it. Inexpensive and accurate. I like it a lot more than my 10/22.

    mine broke on day at the range, and i opened it up to find that much of the internal parts were made of cheap plastic. needless to say, i didnt even bother trying to get it fixed. i got it for free, so i wasnt going to bother with it.

    i now have a remington 597, and im much more happy with it

    My son cleaned re-blued his papa's Glenfield-Marlin 60 the other day. Whats is with the internal plastic parts. The gun shoots good but no wonder it's inexpensive. This gun was made in the early 60s.

    My step father loves his model 60 and is always bragging about how accurate it is after years of service and thousands upon thousands of rounds.

    Had one as a young man.

    The rifle was everything a .22 should be. I have a brother who won't part with his. The Model 60 is a great shooter.

    I bet the new clip-fed Model 717 in .17Mach2 is "H*** on wheels"!

    Best Wishes,

    Harold

    Plastic parts inside? I have a Model 60 and there isn't one part made out of plastic (other than the tip on the magazine tube that pushes rounds up). The model 60 is a GREAT 22. Mine is very accurate- the most accurate 22 I own. It shoots everything fine except for Remington Golden Bulltets- the gold gunk they coat the bullets with melts and gums up the works.
    Mine is a black/grey laminated stock with stainless 22" barrel on it. I love it.

    Yep, fun and inexpensive to shoot, have one in blue and one in stainless (my sons). Accurate and alot of fun to shoot. Both with scopes.

    Gonna take out some crows with them in the fall!
