    I just picked one up a couple weeks ago. Been considering it for awhile. Have had a Glenfield 60 for years and has been a good shooter. Picked up the 75 to go with it. Was in great shape, but a little dirty. Gave it a good strip n clean and took it to the range this past Sunday. Shot as good as the 60 and even showed preferences for the same ammo. Didn't get to spend a lot of time with it, but will on the next range trip.

    Anyone else own one???

    I picked up a battered and rusty Marlin 99 M1 awhile back which is basically the same gun except with an M1 Carbine style handguard. I owned a similar 18 inch barreled Glenfield back in the early 70's.
    These are neat little guns, no doubt about that.

    A friend has a very similar short barreled Marlin but with a clip feed rather than the tublar magazine. Not sure about its model number.

    I bought a Glenfield 75 at a pawn shop for $25, added an $18 Marlin upgrade kit... it's a very accurate shooter with a great trigger.

    I have a Stevens 87 I got for $80, no serial number. Wish I had a manual for it.

    I have a Glenfield model 75C which is simply a model 60 with a short barrel and one less round in the tube. I swapped out the wood stock for a Marlin 60 synthetic stock which popped right into place. . Have a simple 4x rimfire scope mounted. Very accurate. Shoots better than my 10/22 which is no slouch..

    I have no idea what the difference is between a model 75 and a 75C.

    I turned mine into a black rifle;
    cut and chopped the bbl, to an even 16 inches. black engine paint, then mixed
    in a layer of bedliner paint.

    That reminds me that I need to take pictures.

    Unfortunately mine wasn't $25.00. More like 100.00, but it was in very nice shape. One scratch on the receiver but that's it.

    The 75 is a carbine length version of the 60. 10 shot tube and shorter barrel. As far as the action goes, from what I can tell, most of the parts interchange.
