    Isn't this like the 3rd run of these? It's nice to see a good custom stock for these rifles, but sadly I'm left handed and these aren't ambidextrous.

    Technically, the 7th stock type so far this year....Boyd's has really been making wonderful 60 stocks lately.

    They pumped out a 4-color run this time, but within 24 hours, 3 types SOLD OUT. Only one left is Walnut Laminate...and it'll be gone in a day or two.

    We are definitely showing them that there is a need for Marlin Semi-auto Stocks :D

    Ok, that's over...now we wait for another two months and they'll likely be another run of stocks ;)

    Boyd's has got to be loving the fast sell-outs of Marlin stocks...three styles sold out within 24 hours and the walnuts within 4 days...

    Just goes to proove that folks are seriously looking for Pimp-Out items for Marlins :D
    With 12 Million Model 60's sold...that's a LOT of pimping potential :D

    Now if we could just get some High-Cap mags for the Marlin 795...my job is done ;)


    For those who still want/need thumbhole stocks, send an email to Boyd's about which Color you prefer, and if you want a LEFT-handed version...

    what is the logic of them not offering a normal (not limited edition) line of Stocks for the 60?

    I think they're still figuring out how good a market it is.

    The first run was one color.

    The second run was two colors.

    The latest run was Four colors.

    All sold out within DAYS...some within 36 hours.

    12 million Marlin 60's out there...3 million 795's...
    and another 6 million Model 70 varients (Daddy of the 795).

    I think there might be a bit of a market there...
    especially when you consider that Ruger is only at 7 million 10/22's.

    Now if only we could get someone to make some Model 795 hi-cap magazines... ;)

    I don't know if you remember, but you had given me advice on one forum or another on the Marlin 60 over the Ruger 10/22.

    Well today was the first day I took it to the range, and what do you know? I line up to shoot between two Ruger 10/22's.

    Both guys were real friendly, and we did a very thorough comparison... and we all came away thinking the same thing.

    Marlin 60 > Ruger 10/22 in nearly every aspect except for aftermarket pieces.

    The Marlin had a better finish, it was weighted nicer, it had a nice rubber butt pad as apposed to a very cheap looking plastic piece, the tube feed was faster and easier than the rotary clip from the Ruger, and the Marlin was more accurate. I even out-shot one of the guys using my iron sights at 50 yards when he had a scope.

    VERY happy with my purchase.
