And with features such as its sleek Monte Carlo-style walnut laminate stock and a precision-crowned muzzle for enhanced accuracy, it's easy to see why the Model 60 continues to be one of America's best-selling rifles.

Marlin 60 Capacity

The Marlin Model 60 is a semi-automatic .22 caliber rifle with a tube magazine capable of holding up to 14 rounds.  To load the magazine, turn the safety on and hold the gun so the barrel is pointing both up and in a safe direction.  Twist the rod under the muzzle and lift the brass magazine tube until the .22LR shaped cutaway in the black magazine tube is open.  Load up to 14 rounds of .22LR with the nose of the bullet towards the muzzle and drop them in.  Replace the brass tube, and cycle the bolt to chamber a round.
Weighing only five pounds, the Marlin Model 60 is one of the lightest contemporary .22 caliber semi automatics.  Its light weight and short overall length of 37.5 inches makes squirrel and small game hunting easy.

Marlin 60 Ergonomics

Ergonomics
The Marlin Model 60 comes standard with a black walnut Monte Carlo style stock, while composite stocks are available.  The comb gives a comfortable cheek weld while using the factory sights and the rifle’s tendency to be a bit front-heavy minimizes the swaying you get while shooting offhand.

Marlin 60 Fit & Finish

The black walnut stock of the Marlin Model 60 is sealed to protect it from rain and moisture and matches up to the buttpad without any proud wood.  The receiver is made of a cast alloy known as “pot metal” and is often coated with a durable paint.  All of the other metal components are steel with a blued finish or are made of stainless steel.
