    I have a Marlin Model 60 and want to put a good, not too expensive scope on it for plinking. What do you suggest?:D

    I have a Simmons 3 X 9 X 32 .22 Mag. with A.O. on my 10/22 that is an awesome scope. They go for about $65.

    I also recently got a Center Point 3 X 9 X 32 .22 Rimfire scope from Walmart for my old Remington 512 bolt-action that is doing a great job. They go for about $54. It has an illuminated mil-dot reticle that I really like. Seems solid and holds zero very well.

    Just be sure to get a .22 Rimfire style scope with objective set at 50 yards, or go with an adjustable objective scope (A.O.) like the Simmons. :)

    Walmart sells a Centerpoint 4-16x mil-dot scope for around $70 - very nice for the money.

    I might have to try one of those. I have a Model 60 that could use some glass.

    I have a couple Bushnell Banner scopes that I like. For an inexpensive scope, they're pretty decent.

    I've got one of those on my Marlin 25MN (.22Magnum). LOVE it :D
    Although the coyotes in my area hate it...hehehehe :D

    I found it to be overkill for my model 60 (technically a 99-G), which rarely shoots over 100 yards for any reason.
    So it's got a Centerpoint 3x9 on it :)

    thanks for the input folks, I went with a Simmons 3 X 9 X 32 .22 Mag. with A.O. I found a great deal and picked it up for under $40! :D

    Wow, you got a real good price on that Simmons. You won't be sorry, it's a real good scope. The A.O. feature works real well.

    Good shooting!!! :)

    I put a centerpoint 3-9x32 on a Ruger 77/22 and a 4-16 on a REM .243 and
    for the price, you can go wrong. I havent had any problems yet with either.
    Put a tasco 3-9x40 on a Marlin .22 MAG and it works great and the BSA's are
    pretty good as well.

    That is a good deal. How do you like it?
  13. Cheap 3-9x40 Barska on my 36 year old Marlin 60. I shot this target at 50 yards day before yesterday. Nephew has been shooting this gun for a month without cleaning it. I just took it off the rack, used bulk ammo and fired 10 shots rapid fire out of a cold gun off a rest, no scope adjustment first and it apparently is holding its zero alright from the last time I shot it 6 months ago. In fact the last time I adjusted it was right after shooting a 100 yard match with it last September.


    Lot of people make fun of the Marlin 60 and even more fun of the cheap Barska but if it works why mess with it.
