Thank you for having me. I am a 50 something searching for the fountain of youth via collecting Marlin Glenfield. 22's.

I just became a first time grandfather of a very handsome little grandson. And since my first gun was a model 25, he now has 2 M G .22's and is only 2 weeks old plus he will get the two I already had. He gets -

Model 10 Groundhog stock
Model 20 Squirrel stock
Model 25
J C Higgins Model 43DL

The Marlins are all stamped JM. The 20 is a little rough, needing the stock refinished and metal re-blued. The J C is a 9.5 out of 10. Only wish it was a Marlin, not a J C Higgins.

I will get the rest of the Marlin Glenfield models to round out the collection. Should they need work done, I will make them safe to shoot. As for the stocks and metal, they will get cleaned up as well.

I know these guns were made in mass and have no real value, but to me the value is immeasurable. And it is increased even more so knowing they will be handed down to my grandson.

First off congratulations on your grandson! I have a grandaughter and nothing makes me feel as good as seeing her smiling face. As for the Glenfields, they may not be worth a lot but I sure like em too. I have
mod.20 groundhog
2- mod 75's
mod.60 squirrel
And as for the J.C. Higgins, I just picked up a model 48 DL last week and its a very nice rifle and look forward to shooting soon. As for the grandchild, I'm gonna start her out with my two Springfield single shots. Models 83 and 15.
