Re: Marlin Model 60 vs Model 60W
yeah, they made several diff little versions of the mod 60. if you have one made before 1989, you proly have one , with the tube that will hold 17 rounds. the max now is 14,post 1988. also the bbl itself was made to many diff lengths it seems, from 18 inches to 22 inches. So if you have a pre 89 with an 18 inch bbl, and the 17round tube, they will look like they are the same length.
the ones that have the coin in the stock, are usually the ducks unlimited model, unless otherwise it will say nra. they may or may not have a gold trigger guard, and they may or may not be a walnut stock.
