Were you cleaning it and then it did this?
Mine did the same thing, it was a spring that got one of its "legs" on the wrong side of the right side.
It pissed me off trying to figure it out, so I took my other Model 60 out and started comparing part by part to find the problem.

WOW, I couldnt disagree more. I have owned 5 model 60's, two Glenfields, two from the 90's, and one new one. I shot my first one till it would only function as a singleshot. I sold the Glenfields, gave my brother one of the 90's, and still have the newer one. Its topped with a 4-12x40 Bushnell, and holds 2 moa at 150 yards, So I cant complain about accuracy at all.
Me and my buddy used to shoot telephone poles at a halfmile away with my old one. Im impressed it could do it. Aimed about 5 feet high from point of impact.
