I have a 336T and a 336CS. Neither has the Bullseye. Hard to tell if they ever had Bullseye because both have a swivel mount screw where the Bullseye should be. :eek:
Did they ever have the Eye?
Does the screw reduce the value?
Did the previous owners make a mistake by replacing the Eye with a screw?
Doesn't matter. I love my Marlin Lever Gun. ;)
The older I get, the more I learn, the more I get confused. :p

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. ;)
Just bought a 60SB and was wondering the same thing, definetely does look plastic, kept flicking it and couldn't really tell, but if it's cast, maybe. Inside the reciever has the same glossy look.

I just checked mine. The stainless Ducks Unlimited 60 has the same die cast aluminum alloy receiver as the 50th Anniversary model. It's a slippery alloy so it probably has some zinc and it's tough so it likely has some copper.

It has a light clear powdercoat applied over the raw casting. Maybe that's what you're seeing.
