Everything You Want to Know About the Marlin Model 60

For many hunters, the Marlin Model 60 .22 rifle is etched into their early hunting memories.

This grand ol' gal is a blast at the range and can still bring home the small game. Deemed the "most popular .22 in the world," the Marlin model 60 .22-caliber rifle is also a great value.

For these reasons, it's on a lot of wish lists.

The rifle is called "Model 60," because the company introduced it in 1960. Its tubular magazine holds 14 .22 LR 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 allows for 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.
