Re: Another Marlin 60
Its difficult to measure the need. Im comparing to another rifle i have that fits very well and then estimating. If I try an inch it might be enough. Using my 870 butt as a guide i cant see how a standard shotgun recoil pad would work on the 60 but maybe im wrong? If so, that might be perfect.
The way i see it, .22s in general assume a young first time user who needs a shorter stock and thats what you get with a 60. Its a small matter but everytime im out i instinctively believe the stock is going to be long enough and then its always, oh, this is a little short....
