First, the bad: I purchased this rifle in 2011, to put away for when my then young son would be ready to start shooting. Well, this last July, he achieved the 3 mile run that we had agreed was his requirement to begin shooting his Marlin 60 .22, about 3 years ahead of when I'd expected him to. It was a terrific incentive for him, and he worked hard for it. Having worked his rear off to earn the right to shoot his rifle, you can probably imagine our disappointment when, as we unboxed the rifle together for the first time at the rifle range, we discovered that the inner magazine tube was either bent inside the main tube, poorly installed, or wedged in so tight, etc., that it could not be budged out, even by clamping it with a vise-grip, twisting, pulling, etc. The rifle was a complete NO-GO. The situation sucked. Now for the good. We called Marlin the following Monday, explained the situation, got a UPS number, shipped it to them, and received it back, all within about ten calendar days. No hassle, no charge, no questions asked. EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE. THANKS, Marlin! Long story short, we've put a little over two bricks through it since then. A) Not a single malfunction, except for a dud round or two (two strikes w/ firing pin - no fire) B) The rifle runs like a champ, and is (fairly) easy for a young boy to run, except.... C) The bolt release is pretty stiff, and pretty thin (read, blade-like) so it's tough for him, but it's not at all an issue for a bigger kid or adult D) The rifle is accurate as heck, wth Federal and Winchester Wildcat ammo. What does accurate as heck mean, in this case? A child, with a little coaching at first, can hit a pie-plate sized bull at 25 yds all day long, and at 50 yds about half the time. And that's with a length of pull that's too long for him, yet. I can hit the nails in the target frame at 7 yards. Pretty much every shot. Plenty accurate for squirrels, rabbits, or whatever else have you. E) It came dirty as heck from the factory, but it's VERY easy to disassemble, clean, and reassemble. F) The tubular magazine pretty much means that it's not going to get lost. That's the main reason I chose this rifle over the more expensive competitor with the detachable mag. Bottom line: if you're looking for a .22 for yourself and your family, I am VERY happy with this one. I bought the Stainless/Synthetic one for my 3-year old. When he runs his 3-mile, I'll be writing a review on that one. At this point, I give this rifle a solid 5.

So, I decided to get a .22 auto loader. I went with the model 60 because I like the classic look of a tube fed magazine. Very pleased with the laminated stock. Fit and finish is excellent all around. Nice smooth lines. Field stripping it, right out of the box, I found small bits of metal shavings and grit on almost everything. CLEAN YOUR GUN BEFORE YOU FIRE IT! At the range the little plinker performed well. 2 inch groups at 100 yards. Had a few FTF's due to ammo I suspect, and the last round, once fired, May or may not make it all the way out and will lay there in the action until you tip the gun sideways. Ammo or consequence due last round bolt hold open?.....who knows. All in all good little shooter. Accuracy is impressive.

The gun has a nice finish and shoots perfect right out of the box.

Marlin Model 60, solid rifle, no frills, gets the job done every time. I like the tube mag, makes loading the 22LR rounds easier. Stock is very nice on this rifle and came packaged from Marlin very well with no issues. Buds did ship on the 7th day per their 3-7 business day rule and I received the rifle 10 days after ordering. Had to call on the 7th business day to make sure all was good. Have had good experiences with them before so not going to bust on them like I have seen others do. $158 for a brand new Marlin 60 is a steal.

The rifle looks great. This is my first personal .22lr rifle, although my father's is used more by me than him. This is also my first tubular fed rifle. I think the rifle looks stunning compared to the stock photo, and it does it no justice. I haven't had the chance to take it out to shoot, but I have already mounted my scope to it and it will be taken out asap. The other .22lr we have has a synthetic stock and is beaten up and has no case. I wouldn't mind giving this rifle character, but I think buying a case for this rifle will be on the top of my list. Upon inspecting the rifle it was real easy to identify the safety and how to work it. It was also easy to identify how the lock switch works for the cocking mechanism. Sorry if I am not using the correct terminology. My only regret is that it took so long to get this rifle. Bud's took a total of 16 days to get me this rifle and I even paid by debit card.
