I am betting that the Lady of the Frozen North will be able to tell you quite a bit about it.

The model 6081 stands for model 60 and made in 1981 . I believe that is correct .

Correct. The Alamo was produced in 1981 as a house brand gun for Oklahoma Tire and Supply Company (OTASCO), same as Marlin has made guns that were branded for Sears, Wards and so on. There was a whole run of various commemoratives for OTASCO. Basically it's a Marlin Glenfield Model 60.

She came through with the most information.

I'm always amazed at your knowledge of the Marlins. Makes me wonder what I'm missing.

I like those 60 Marlins, too, though I am a recent convert to the 60. Never understood what all the fuss was about with the Marlin 60, until a friend brought a Marlin Papoose to me to help get sighted in, the Papoose being the take down version of the 60, of course. Have to say, I was astonished at the accuracy. Made our Ruger 1022 look bad.

I now have a 60W with the NRA emblem in the stock. Can't wait to shoot it. May be awhile, though. 22 below, last night.

Twenty-two below zero. I noticed the picture was taken indoors. I'm still amazed at how you are finding these wonderful rifles.

I bought a Glenfield Mod 60 long ago and sold it later. I got another one from my father and gave it away. The one I had was an accurate rifle and was easy to shoot well. I was rather impressed with that aspect.

I just don't particularly want a semi-auto rifle and I like external hammers so the Henry pump and the Marlin 39A do nicely. The Marlin/ Glenfield 60 does seem like a great value though.

While I am a semi-auto fan when it comes to hand guns, I've never been much on semi-auto rifles. Have had several 1022 carbines - the originals with walnut stocks - back in the day and now this Marlin 60. Since I am the "Marlin girl" around here and we do own a 1022 Sporter (which Bill likes to shoot), thought I should have a 60. I'll do a shootout test with both, side by side, when the weather moderates. I suspect the guns will function at twenty below, just not sure I would.

My Ruger and Henry radar was active in 2013. I'm still looking for my first Marlin.
