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...
Second, J&P Springs will become another home for you...
Third, so will Numrich...(where you will get replacement Buffers and other neat things like the Marlin Adjustable Rear Sight)
Fourth...bookmark this site also...DIP (Diversified Innovative Products)
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!
