    Very tidy little rifle. Doesn't get used as I use another .22 and .17. Huntsman 4x scope. 15 round tube mag. Cycles well. $450.

    Nice....

    I am a fan for these little marlin semis. Simple and basic rimfires but with very good barrels. Have not come across one yet that would not drop under 0.5 for groups at 50m, and average close to that.

    They love all things CCI, and if you keep actions clean and run them almost dry of oil (one drop on bolt only) they cycle beautifully

    All good mate. Not using the 25 and too lazy to sell it, but always fancied a 60 and space is tight

    Buy it Nibblet you know you want to.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Be great to use at the "rimfire only" gong at the Toby Memorial shoot.

    Could have a 100,150 and 200 yrd rimfire gong set up, seriously fun.

    I think it would be a good idea to have rim fire range of gongs too
    Especially for those who don't shoot long range to play on

    Rimfire is very cost effective with lots of "smiles per dollar" on gongs

    You'd be very lucky to get a 60 DLX now - they don't make that anniversary model any more.

    I remember refurbing this one a year or so ago - lovely little rifle. 1990 model, and my own 90s Marlin 60 is a superb shooter.

    Here's an earlier test on mine that'll show just how good these things can be:

    Three .22 sharpshooters

    Took this to the range a few weeks ago. 15 rounds on the gong at 100m as fast as I could pull the trigger. Great fun. Why am I selling it
