You'll have a hard time wiping the grin off your face after you shoot it!
“…democratic socialism, the great utopia of the last few generations, is not only unachievable but that to strive for it produces something utterly different – the very destruction of freedom itself. As has been aptly said: ‘What has always made the state a hell on earth has been precisely that man has tried to make it his heaven.'” F.A. Hayek
Wow, that is just gorgeous! Hey, don't I owe you a sling for that beauty?

Good score. I have a few rimfires that are my faves, mainly my stainless 10/22 which is a tack driver, but for 60 bucks I'd jump all over that Marlin. Even if I had no use for it, I mean, 60 bucks?

Seeing a picture of that old model 25 brought back some memories. None of them were bad. I'll risk saying this but you sir just purchased an heirloom gun that can be passed down for generations. I would buy a couple of spare mags for it that you can keep tucked away that only get used when the original one finally fails. Remember, your great grandkids may be shooting it the same way you do today.

I have a couple of Marlin Model 60s. Great little guns.
Sounds like a good deal. I have a Marlin 336 in .30-30; Marlin 1895 in 45-70; Marlin XR7 in 30-06, and 2 Marlin 60s in .22. To me a Marlin is always a good bet.
