I spotted a lovely Marlin model 60 Stainless at our local Wal-Mart a few weeks ago, and it's been on my mind since then. So, today I went in and boldly asked them to unlock it so i could check it out closer. The receiver doesn't seem to be made out of metal, it looks like some kind of composite plastic. Does anyone know if this receiver is plastic? The older Model 60 I looked at earlier today at a gun shop had a metal receiver, to the best of my memory. Thanks for any advice or knowledge you can pass on to me.
