Marlin 60SN Rifle w/Synthetic Stock
Nice Little Gun
I received this rifle when I was 8 years old and have been using it for over 20 years. While it is not the most expensive or fanciest gun out there, it does what it is supposed to which is shoot straight. It works great as a varmint gun. The action works very well as long as it is cleaned and oiled regularly. The action is very easy to pull apart and reassemble. There are two downsides to this gun. First it is tube loaded, not mag loaded. For some people that may be an issue. The other is the sight is not that great. Luckily the sight can be replaced using just a screwdriver. Overall it is a good gun that will last forever as long you take good care of it.

Bad Customer Service
I purchased a new Model 60 on the 26th of September along with a scope. I found that I could not mount the scope on the receiver inline with the barrel. I contacted Marlin and was instructed to ship the weapon the to Paducah Kentucky repair facility which I did on 3 October. They confirmed the receiver was not manufactured properly and sent the weapon back to Marlin factory. Three phone calls and an email to both Marlin and Remington have been unsuccessful in getting a serviceable weapon back to me. It is now 19 November!

Best Purchase Ever
I remember as a kid plinking on my grandpas farm, this was the exact gun i first used except i had shot the wood version. I loved the gun so much i finally bought one of my own! It cycles well, no jamming, great capacity and light weight i highly recommend it! Only draw back i can think of is neither version of this gun were in stock at the time so i had to pay in advance but the gun came the next day so i cant complain. Also .22LR ammo is impossible to find right now so be aware when purchasing a .22 at this point in time...

Nice little gun
Wanted to pick this rifle up at my local store but they didn't have it in stock. They found one and I ordered it on a Saturday, they had it there by Tuesday. I was pleasantly surprised by that! I immediately took it out and cleaned the bore chamber and the action a bit. Then I shot about 300-400 rounds through it. I shot some old Winchester wildcat lead nose: no issues. Remington bulk hi velocity hp's: no issues. Cci lead nose: one jam, federal bulk hp's: no issues at all... The rifle is very accurate but the rear sight does leave a bit to be desired. It wanted to shoot to the right and rear sight windage adjustment is non existent unless you want to bend the sight a bit... Still accurate as heck tho... I was knocking down clay pigeons set from 20-80 yards fairly easily. Needless to say I am very happy with this purchase, especially for $160. Can't beat it. Good job marlin... Can't wait to put a scope or holo on it!
