I posted a while back about a couple of Marlin/Glenfield .22 rifles I picked up. They had belonged to Stembridge ( http://www.stembridge.us/2012/03/05/a-l ... s-history/ ), a company that supplies guns for movies. One, a model 60, cleaned up real well and I put TechSites ( http://www.tech-sights.com/ ) on it and it's a great rifle. The model 70 was filthy and the receiver was busted; I took it apart and sold the pieces. The barrel on the 70 was threaded inside the muzzle. After some questions and a couple of threads on different fora I found out that a plug would be screwed into the bore to make the rifle function and feed with blanks.

So, today, I walked into the same gunstore and made a deal on 2 more Marlins; a model 60 (missing the inner mag tube) and a model 70 without a magazine. I knew of another gun store with an assortment of inner magazine tubes for $10 each. New these can cost $40. I found one that fits -- the follower is broken but it appears to function -- if you know where I can buy a replacement plastic Marlin .22 tube follower please let me know.

The 70, again, has those threads. This time there's a special treat - something in the bore. With a bore light a little light got through but the bore seemed obstructed. A little flashlight work lit up a hexagon about an inch from the muzzle; an allen screw. A little work with a hex key and the obstruction was out. The bore cleaned up nice despite the fact that it had probably not been cleaned after the last time it was used on the set. I found a magazine in stock at Sportsman's Warehouse.

The Model 70:

The screw is out:

There is a small hole drilled through the screw so some gas can escape out the muzzle.

Are you going to shoot it with the barrel as is, or shorten it up and get rid of the threads?

I'm going to shoot it as is and see how it groups. I'm thinking it'll be okay because the threads are bigger than the bore. If I think it needs it I'll have it counterbored.

Sounds like some good finds. I recently picked up another model 60 and need a inner mag tube for.

Figure out how long you need and let me know -- there's three more where I bought one. Include shipping and it's still gotta be a lot cheaper than buying a new one at $40.
