Default help with marlin 60

I'm wondering if anyone has some good pictures of an action on a marlin 60. Something is not quite right with mine but i cant tell what it is. I think it has something to do with my ejector spring. I have pics but dont know how to post them. Something isnt quite right with the orientation so im looking for some good pics to see how to put it together. After disassembling it I can't get it to go back together and function properly so im assuming I did something to the action.

Kdub, try out Numrich or Brownell's as they have some schematics of this rifle. maybe this will help you out. i tore mine down and had to refer to one to get it back together properly.

Yeah I tried that, the problem was it was all exploded so I couldnt tellyhe finer points of assembly. I may have to try and track someone down locally who has one.

Search for Arrowdodger Model 60 disassembly.

Its a total tear-down & reinstall with pics of each step.

Thanks Guys


After you get your first one-hole group at 50 yards for under $100, its hard to resist ending up with one Marlin of each type
I started with a Marlin 25MN for $85, first day at the range I was outshooting guys with much more expensive .17HMR rigs

After getting the Marlin bug about 6 years ago and it turned into a hobby...so easy to fix, so cheap to find at pawn shops/yard sales...
phenominal precision for low bucks...next thing ya know I've got 8-9 of 'em in the safe & one more on layaway...
and fixing 'em for free at the local range when I spot someone having an issue (1/2 Remington ammo probs and 1/2 Ejector Wire alignment...LOL)

The one thing that drove me nuts was the lack of info on the net...so between me and a couple other Marlin Nuts,
we started really working hard to get the important stuff posted on a variety of sites so that anyone could fix 'em up
and be happy as we are with 'em...so now there's LOTS of stuff posted where anyone can find it...
and tons more to learn & share with each rifle I buy
