Qwilan, welcome. Where about in Iowa? Sounds almost like Mississippi Valley.Hello, I am new to the forums from Iowa. I have great love for my Marlin 60' s . I have had one since I was little in '85. and my other was rescued from the 2008 flood here in Iowa. I am in the process of refinishing the rifle but it is slow going.
I have decided after looking at 01Sporty's thread that I am going to get it duracoated in black and get a new stock for it from Boyd's to pretty it up. it is a decent shooter and am trying to fix it up to get the oldest kid interested is punching paper and maybe squirrels next year.
