My model 60 is more than 30 years old and still performs flawlessly as long as you keep it clean. I also have 10/22 which I like very much but am partial to the Marlin. My firs Marlin is nearly 70 years old and works perfectly as well.

Overall great rifle! I am a huge fan of the .22 and this gun makes me love it even more. I have put about 450 rounds through it without a hiccup. It is easy to maintain and if treated right, should last a lifetime! Buy it!

Use Dovetail tip offs that fit the groove on top of the receiver

Yes, you could put a scope on right out of the box. But how ever, you will need to sight in the scope with the rifle. I recommend using blade 1mm dovetail mounts. And no you do not need the receiver drilled or taped. A rail is optional.
Depends on what bird. For a small bird, like a quail or something. Then it might be a little bit of a over kill. But for a dove or bigger then yes. It is a good gun but highly reccomended for squirrel size and up.
In my State. Squirrels, and rabbits are legal to hunt with a .22. Also varmint shooting of ground hogs, coyotes, and other trouble causing species are legal to shoot.

Due to their small bullet size they are most efficient on smaller game like squirrel (my favorite), rabbit, groundhog, ground squirrel, and other small game. I know a few farmers that use their .22s for fox and coyote, but I dont recommend this because a larger caliber rifle is needed in my opinion. However, they also use it for rats and various birds. On top of varmint control, plinking never gets boring.
The Model 60 is well-suited for small-game hunting and vermin control, as well as for serious but low-cost target practice while preparing for hunting with larger rifles. It's a good gun to practice before you get into the bigger guns.
