Since I was given this marlin model 60 it has become a obsession. I haveing it leaning in my bedroom and everytime I walk by I give a love tap and tell to be good. I am all the time tinkering with it, wipe it down, it never ends.
There is some small issues with it, what bugs me most is how can somebody mistreat a nice clean beautiful gun, not cleaning it, let it get nasty just all out not take care of it. I had ejection issues, think may have that fixed doing the nickel trick from watching a video from rimfire central, I also watched one from arrowdodger talking about making sure the ejector spring is not rubbing the frame, which it is, so now need to dig out my dremel from storage to do some tinkering. I also found a polishing vid from carbo about polishing the feed ramp. Thought ok second tinker, but got to looking at mine and on top of the feed throat the coating is flaking off, well darn add another part to my wish list to replace, once I get that in will do the polishing.
I have spent more time finding tid bits that need fixed or repaired more money to spend than I can go out and fun with this gun. But in the end its fun kinda relaxing and knowing when I am done will have a good, clean taken care of rifle that never let me down.
