It just takes one museum curator to get that going.

They are too new is the reason. Other than the museum thing.

If I could put a CZ set trigger assembly in the M69, it would go from dandy to awesome !

I learned a lot about how to sweat out dings in the wood and remove large amounts of Cosmoline from a vintage gun. I am now looking for the next project.

I was driving across the country already, so I made a 10 minute detour off of the I-20 to look at them in person. Was cheaper to get it shipped home than to pay the 10% sales tax and walk out with it.

I am looking for a quality bolt action rifle for plinking, target shooting etc.
What make and model gives the best bang for the buck?

I emailed them yesterday, got a response today. Says it should be processed and shipped in one to two weeks. Still holding my breath. Or something.

I've got an older Marlin 880 that I quite like - has a removable magazine and is tolerably accurate. the new model is I believe the XT-22 and comes with an adjustable trigger. My LGS had one for about $225 with a wood stock. Some claim the new Marlin ownership is no good - I have no opinion on that.

Everyone makes a .22 bolt still I think, so you are going to get a lot of opinions. Best deal is likely to be used.

Well I just bought a Ruger 77/22. http://www.ruger.com/products/rotary...eets/7021.html (not cheap plus I had to buy a scope) But Savage Arms makes some very good rifles for the money. I think the model 64 FXP, packaged with a scope is hard to beat. http://www.savagearms.com/firearms/models/

What's the consensus on a Marlin 60.

Cabela's has them on sale. It says 10 shot magazine. It has a tube. Seems like they should hold more. Did the older ones have a larger capacity??

[QUOTE=Rusty Rocket;21581906]What's the consensus on a Marlin 60.

I have one from roughly 1980 that I have no plans on parting with.Its always been very accurate.The only trouble I have ever had was when it was a bit reluctant to cycle and a good cleaning took care of that.

The manual lists the capacity as 18.I don't know if they changed that sometime or if they have special models for restricted areas.I don't know about the quality of the"new"Marlin but I would be willing to take a chance on it.

I was thinking that they "plugged" the tube spring to make it a 10 rd mag.

I have a Rem 572 about the same size and it holds way more than 10. Maybe I should look for a used one or see if any parts are around to make the new one "old".

Marlin M60 capacity

According to the Marlin website the capacity is 14 rounds:

I just checked the 60 and a 572 side by side.This 60 holds 18 and is stamped Long Rifle only.The 572 holds 15 but accepts shorts,longs,and long rifle. I tend to forget I even own the 572.We never bonded
I would think the tube and spring would be the only way to change capacity.The current version looks the same as mine and loads the same so there isn't much else that could limit it

Anyone else get a Fathers Day Flyer from Cabela's? I think they have different capacities in different states. It would be interesting to hear from someone in another part of the US. CT just passed a 10 shot mag limit, but rimfires were exempt.
