I wouldn't do anything until you run about 1k rounds through it.

Nope, would probably enhance its value greatly.

Seriously, if a rifle is worth less than $1000.00, chances are you can't hurt it by fixing it up...

I have the glenfield with scope and squirrel stock. They are pretty easy to keep running, if you ever have ANY issues with it, go over to http://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=217 and read the stickies, they can solve about every problem with th marlin 60.

yes if it's in good condition and working properly, then yes it's worth $90. i'd pay that much for one. the older Marlins held 18 rounds in the tube and the newer ones only hold 14.

also some information i gathered about the M60 is that they added the LSHO feature in the mid 1980's IIRC, and many were marked Marlin Glenfield up until the early 1980's.

Yep

Sounds like you are about to become a Fixer of Old Beater Rifles...which is both good and bad...lol

My Personal Preference is towards the 18-rd mags with LSHO...as they've got the most updated parts & are the easiest to upgrade...
there are FOUR styles of the Marlin 60 trigger-guard, the LSHO Square-back being the latest evolution...
also having the longer barrel, which means longer sight radius...which means better precision with OEM sights...which means more accuracy!

First thing, do you like wood or synthetic stocks?? Boyd's has a nice selection of Woods...
http://www.boydsgunstocks.com/Replacement-Stocks-for-Marlin-Rifles-s/124.htm?searching=Y&sort=9&cat=124&show=12&page=1& brand=Marlin%2060%20795

Second, J&P Springs will become another home for you...
https://www.jnpgunsprings.com/product_info.php?cPath=29&products_id=219

Third, so will Numrich...(where you will get replacement Buffers and other neat things like the Marlin Adjustable Rear Sight)
http://www.gunpartscorp.com/catalog/Models.aspx?catid=310

Fourth...bookmark this site also...DIP (Diversified Innovative Products)
http://www.diproductsinc.com/Products.aspx?CAT=3603

There's actually a TON of repair info available on Marlin 60's...both at Marlin Owners and Rimfire Central...
RFC is set up a wee bit better for specific searches...
And they've also got the most Updated version of my Marlin House Brands listing, which gets regular updates as we discover more about Marlins!
That Cross-Reference covers 99.9% of Marlins made for Big Box Stores...the only ones not listed are the ones not discovered yet!
