While not technically in honor of Buy A Gun Day (I found out about BAGD afterwards), I purchased a Marlin Model 60. I intend to use this rifle for an Appleseed event, general plinking, and as a trainer for my son when he gets old enough. I had an opportunity to fire the Marlin 60 last weekend and found it to be very accurate and pleasant to shoot with the factory sights.
I replaced the factory sights with GI aperture sights, similar to those of the M-1, M-14, or M-16 rifles. The Tech Sights were extremely easy to install. I have a USGI web sling, but am still waiting for the sling mounts to arrive in the mail. Once all the parts are in and installed, I doubt I’ll do anything else to this rifle. I’ll be sure to post some pictures and offer a full range report in the near future.
