This is a discussion on Marlin 60 within the Rimfire forums, part of the Gun Forum category; I see alot of 10/22 fans, would never knock them but here's the guy I grew up with!
-17 round tube
-auto-open on last shot
Great rifles. The only weakness I've found is the nylon block in the action, it will eventually crack. They are accurate and have a great feel when you shoulder them. I especially like the little Glenfield 75 carbine version.
The Model 60 has been around forever in one form or another. A problem in older guns that have been shot a lot is the feed ramp. The feed ramp is made out of chrome plated pot metal and will eventually wear out causing failure to feed properly. Replacement parts are cheap enough, but changing it out requires pulling apart the trigger housing. Almost a impossibility with out having a gazillion parts flying around. Just a heads up for those that use them. dozier

got one a little while ago. love how it feels and that there are no magazines to keep track of.
haven't shot it yet. i disassembled it to give it a clean. when i went to reassemble it, somehow i really bent the long spring that fits behind the bolt. i was not happy. new spring coming soon. maybe a couple just in case.
Can be ammo fussy, no surprise with semi autos, but love that little rifle! Do need to get some tech sights for it.
Can the poster that uses the dry lube give us more info, I am intersted.
Dry graphite lube normally used for locks I think. Use instead of any lubricant, it decreases powder fouling. Mine just really started running alot smoother. I dont know how it compares to oil as far as the longevity of the action though.
