I picked up this Marlin model 70 the other day. Came with a soft case, a 7 round factory mag and an aftermarket 25 round mag. The scope is a cheap POS that looks like it's for a BB gun.

The little rifle is missing it's front sight. Know where I could find one? Numrich is out.... Otherwise, although it's been used, it is in good condition.

I traded the guy 6 USGI 30rnd post ban Center Industries mags for it. I paid $5.40 each for the mags I traded, making this gun cost me $32.40. Not a bad deal....

That looks a lot like a model 60. What's the difference?

I'll trade you a digital camera for the gun.

Wow, now you need to trade that for a camera. I can hook you up!!

Seriously though, don't you even feel bad?

Great deal. That scope might not be as bad as you think, depends on it's age.

With your eyesight you probably don't need the front sight anyway.

I wonder if Midway might have anything.

If not, try gunbroker?

This one should work, but I cant guarantee it.

Nice snag - better than my Glenfield tube feed I paid $20 for & had to glue back together. FYI, don't try to zero it w/ Stingers - that cheap scope will wander like Moses in the desert. Sadly, the Presbyterians probably broke it again after they gave me $50 for it.

Gig 'em,

Call Marlin. I've had no problems getting parts in the past. You can try Jack's First gun for hard to find parts too if Marlin can't help.

Sorry no links I'm on posting from my phone.
