could you please weigh the Glenfield Model 25 for me and post its weight - i am interested in getting one but would like to have an idea on how much it weighs.I bought a Marlin Glenfield Model 25 .22 rifle this Spring for $100 (U.S.). Needless to say it is used, and made in 1971. This is the first firearm I have that is actually younger than I am...LOL. I was an entire two weeks old when 1971 began...LOL. I have fired this rifle about three times so far and I am really grateful to have it, fairly accurate, I'm happy with it.
It is truly a rare thing to find a .22 with a regular (non-bull) barrel that weighs more than 7 pounds. Most go from 5-6.5#could you please weigh the Glenfield Model 25 for me and post its weight - i am interested in getting one but would like to have an idea on how much it weighs.

My very first gun was a Glenfield Model 25 I recieved for my eighth birthday, so that would have been September 1976.The Glenfield 25 was manufactured from 1979 through 1982 according to Brophy. Others would suggest the Marlin Glenfield 25 was produced from 1972-1982
. . . I'm not sure where marlin was putting them in that period maybe somebody else here has better firsthand info, goodluck with your search and enjoy the rifle.
My serial number is on the left side of the receiver, just behind where it meets the barrel.Take a pic of the barrel where they imprinted everything and post it here...that should alleviate a few headaches
Mine was cut down to fit me at eight. The barrel was shortened. My Barrel is 19". And the stock was shortened. Length of pull, from the butt plate to the trigger is 12.5".But it is pretty heavy, and pretty long, for a 9 year old.
Cool! According to that, mine was made in 1975
Just take it to a gunsmith. Tell him what you want it to do, and he should be able to make it happen.This trigger needs help. I don't remember it being a problem as a kid (maybe because I had nothing to compare it to), but this is one of the heaviest triggers I've ever pulled. I think I'm going to have a blister on my finger in the morning after putting in some serious practice last night and today.
Anyone know of a trigger kit for this gun or do I just take it to a local gunsmith and see if he can work it over?
Brophy did get the occasional thing wrong... Heck, there are a LOT of Marlins that nobody ever even heard of that he listed."The Glenfield 25 was manufactured from 1979 through 1982 according to Brophy. Others would suggest the Marlin Glenfield 25 was produced from 1972-1982."
Just found a thread on Rimfirecentral, and, apparently, Brophy got the years confused. There is another poster there, who also has a 1969 Glenfield Model 25.
Ok, found something just as good, if not betterIf it has a 3/8ths rail, the Weaver 49515 scope rings are WONDERFUL. Walmart.
