    I see one on GB, Glenfield, 1978, jewled bolt carrier in very good condition. With shipping and transfer fee it would come to 105.00, if I can buy at my max bid.

    No, not too much, for good shape one. They are sure getting pricier new over the last 5 years.

    Is that the longer-barrel, higher-capacity model?

    If so, they don't make 'em like that any more.:)

    I'd spring for it (though if you don't get it, a new 60 from Wal-Mart is also a great gun, especially when paired with the 4x32 Nikon scope they have).

    Also check out the pawn shops in your area. Around here I find them with price tags of $80-90.00, but they frequently will go out the door for $60.00 (cash)

    You will more than likely have to spend an evening cleaning it, but you can't beat the price.

    Just make sure the plastic recoil buffer isn't cracked. That is the only problem I have had with a used one I bought for $ 30.00

    It was the 22" barrel w/17 round capcity. I did not get it, went for 90.00 + 25.00 shipping. Then add your transfer fee.

    Don't worry there are millions of them out there. Wait for a good deal locally and save the shipping and transfer fees for a rarer gun.

    I just picked up one for $125.00. Was looking at 10/22's but couldn't afford a new one and the used ones didn't look all that good. Now I need to get rid of one of my Mozzies. Man, I need a bigger cabinet!!:(

    The new one holds 15, though. It's not THAT big of a deal.:)

    Marlin says 14, but if you close the bolt on an empty chamber before loading the tube, the current model's tube will take 15.

    right but then, you have to rack it, to load a round, and now you got 14 plus 1, the oldies will do 17 or 18 plus one.
    I would not spend over 100 bucks on a mod 60, go to a pawnshop, or gunshop, and get a used one. Look for an 85 to 88' model; this will have a 22 inch bbl, the feed tube will go almost all the way out to the end of the bbl, and it will still have the last shot bolt hold open lever, on the front right side of the trigger
    guard. these are the only years, that all 3 of these features, could be had.

    A stock out of the box Model 60 for $100 to $130 is worth its cost than an out of the box 10/22 at $50 more IMO.

    Wrong.

    Like I said, if you close the bolt on an empty chamber in the new ones, you can drop 15 into the magazine tube.

    Capacity is limited to 14 if you leave the bolt locked open when you load the tube.

    If you want to load the chamber and top off the mag, you can get 15+1 in the new ones, if you really want to do that with a tube mag. I have, but it's a bit of a PITA, so I don't do it much. It's possible to avoid the muzzle while loading it, but it's not the easiest thing to do.:)

    I paid 70 or 80 bucks for an old Glenfield model that holds 18 if you load on a closed, empty chamber. I guess you could jack a round in the chamber and load another, but I'm not doing it with my hands that close to the muzzle.

    Best money I ever spent.

    Anyone know exactly WHY you can fit a whole extra round with a closed bolt vs. an open bolt?

    You most certainly can, but I'm not sure why the gun works that way.
