    So I was at a gun show looking for some more pieces to blue and I found the Glenfield/Marlin model 60 action. look on line for some wood to much money. Num has some but was not sure if this was early or late so went to some catalogs and found a ATI plastic stock $45 to the door, so now it time to re blue and duracoat the aluminum stuff here are some befor pictures will up date after with some more pictures.

    I just laid away a Glenfield model 20, bolt action 22.
    The front sight has been snapped off, the stocks finish is spotty, elevation slide is missing, but it fires shorts, longs, and long rifle.
    The rifle reminds me of my grandfather's I used on the farm.
    So, I have a project too, but no camera.
    I'll try to get some pics anyway. :thumbup:

    Are the pictures invisible? I don't see them.

    I'm sorry haven't even got the rifle out of lay away yet.
    I'm on a fixed income.
    I just saw the poor thing that could use a new life.
    I'm thinking of putting a glow sight for the replaced front blade "?" maybe.
    Cleaning up the wood, staining it and using Finnwax to finish it.
    Haven't decided yet.
    Can't afford to buy a lot things at one time with my finances, so I kind to have to do them piece meal.
    Your rework looks good in the picture. :peace::cheer:
