The rifle is called “model 60,” because the company introduced it in 1960. Its tubular magazine holds 14 long-rifle cartridges. After the shooter fires the last cartridge, an automatic bolt hold opens to indicate it’s time to reload. The semi-automatic, self-loading action keeps your eyes on the target. It helps keep the shooter from fumbling to load between shots.

The 19-inch, Micro-Groove® rifled barrel enables great accuracy. From the factory, the stock is walnut finished, which gives the rifle a sharp appearance. The cross bolt safety is quick and positive.



Plenty of additions are available for the Marlin model 60. Tactical style stocks and different scope selections are just the tip of the iceberg. The stainless steel models look slick and ensure extra corrosion resistance for those rainy days out in the woods.
