    blue or stainless model 60

    is the stainless worth the $40 more price tag? does it shoot as good as the blue barrel. i am shooting a 2003 model blued with simmons scope that was set when the gun was purchased new. the scope is still set and drops animals fast, but i was wanting to get another as my son turns 8 this year and i want to pass the old one down as it was my dads till his stroke and he gave it back to me. the blueing is nearly gone from the old one but it is still a tack driver just like it was new as i keep my guns clean. so if you were getting a marlin model 60 would you go blue or stainless? thanks for any help.

    Mine is blued, was purchased in the 70s and still shoots great. I'm a sucker for stainless though.

    Heirloom guns should be blued. In fact, most guns should be blued.
