Long range 22 plinker?

So, I haven’t gone Completely to peep sights… just on my hunting or field guns. 😉

But I didn’t want the scope that my buddy Swany gave me to go to waste, so I dug out a rail adaptor and some rings, put it on my Super Stock Marlin model 60.

This was my first 22, and actually my first gun, circa late 90s.

“Super Stock”, because it’s basically a standard rifle, just in a configuration Marlin never made, with some light tuning.  Based on a shooting class/style over at the rimfire cental forums, of which I was a member at the time.

A blued action on the black laminated stock was never sold by Marlin (at least at the time I built this, a decade ago). Action polished and tuned, bolt jeweled. Aluminum trigger guard from an older Glenfield 60 fitted. (stock is plastic on the later rifles)

I had to replace the stock after a mod failure, and went with the gorgeous laminate, but have never really carried or used the gun much since; these stocks are Heeeaaaavvyy…

The scope actually improves the feel and balance quite a bit! Amazingly since in my experience a a scope always ruins a rifles balance.

I’d done this, the scope on there,  to get some use from both, thinking of a dedicated 100+ yard plinker to play with at the range… I dunno now, with the balance improved, it might just see some field use. 😎 😀
