    Just bought my first Marlin, a used $80 model 60, to join my arsenal of Rugers, Springfields and AR's.
    I was actually looking for a 10/22, but many suggested that the 60 was more accurate, just doesn't have the aftermarket support. That's OK, it means I won't spend as much on shiny doodads.:D
    I plan on Cerakote, (what color, purple?) and some trigger work, probably won't have $200 in it.
    Look for my dumb questions soon.:eek:

    Welcome to the forum. There's no such thing as a dumb question.

    Thanks everyone. I've been looking around, some very nice customizing, giving me too many ideas!!!:confused:
    Now I'm thinking of re-finishing the stock, to a darker color, maybe Cherry, which will contrast with the Cerakote better, but I still haven't decided what color to go with.
    Maybe I should wait until I actually have it in my hands?

    Welcome aboard Mate

    I painted my 375 H & H after watching a few of these video's on You tube
    [ame]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RoAL9T-Aw9k[/ame]

    One of my work mates is shooting it
    Have had several hunts with it, and has no damage, and heaps cheaper. if you damage it, simply repaint that area.


    Cheers
    Bucky

    Northwest corner of the state, it looks like a chimney.
    Luckily for me it was claimed by PA long before I was born, so I wasn't born in New York!;)
