Anybody own one of these? I think I'm going to buy one in good shape off a guy for $80. About the right price huh?

I would see if he would take $60. The model 60 is a pretty simple yet functional 22. My dad had one and it worked pretty good. Its not a real expensive gun and is a very good simple .22 for shooting tin cans and squirels and such.

Thanks guys. My plan was to start my sons collection with it. He's only two, so he's got a while before he can start plinking tin cans, but I figure for the money it would be a good starter piece in several years.

Well if you have a choice. i would STRONGLY recommend a ruger 10/22. i have own a couple actually. i have one that has lasted me for 35 years. still in the best condition. and works amazingly. its a little bit more expensive but deffintly the best buy. i just recently purchased a camo 10/22. i am in love with it. so if your willing to spend more money and want a good looking lasting gun i would go with a 10/22.

Got mine in 1968 with a scope for $49. Still works flawlessly, lethal on squirrels.

Marlin, never liked the feel of the Ruger.

I dont care for the ruger much either. I bought one a few years ago, but normally when I go out for squirrels I take my Remington Model 550-1. My grandpa gave it to me when I was old enough to shoot and it is the best .22 I have ever shot.
If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

Know your target before you pull the trigger.

Still shoot a winchester mod 1898 22 pump gun with an exposed hammer. These things were "gallery" guns at the fist part of the century. They are an excellent beginners guns. I saw them listed on one web sight for 350$ however. Some in excellent condition go for $1000 dollars. Mine is well used and still shoots wonderfully. They have tube magazines and use the winchester action but with a pump action. They are top eject. Many a prarie dog has met his maker with mine as well as some racoons that got to be too much of a nusience.

Citori, is that Gallery Gun a 22 Short? I have one that we have always called a gallery gun that is 22 short.

Actually, yours is worth more because of the .22 short...mine shoots 22 long and short.
