The Marlin Model 60 has always been my favorite.

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.

Recently Ive found that dry graphite lube makes em run best. This might be old news, but good for what its worth.

I prefer the action on my Marlin Papoose...






Just Kidding!



But making the point that more than just the Model 60 shares that action!

The nylon block problem seems to happen to them all, I think there was a retrofit available if I recall correctly.

My first rifle! Just cleaned it last night.

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.

Cool

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.

Thanks from str8shooter

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.

I bought one last year with a carbon fiber stock. Took out a pesky rabbit in my sister's vegetable garden. The tinkling of .22 shells on her kitchen floor made it all worth it.
