Greetings Everyone. I am mostly retired now and have found time to go back to my old interest, guns, and shooting them. When I was young, we shot High Standard .22 pistols and CMP bolt actions (Remingtons?) in a local National Guard armory. As a 20-something, I got a Marlin 39M which I still have. Then life intervened, and I only shot what my Uncle Sam handed me for many years. Now I have rediscovered what a lot of fun it is to fix up old guns. So far I have fiddled with a couple of older Model 60s, replacing feed throats. My current favorite is a J C Higgins 103.228 sold by Sears, which I believe to be a Marlin Model 80C. I hope to see this forum grow and provide information and enjoyment for all of us Marlin lovers.
