Just a couple of questions I have for gunsmithing purposes
Is the receiver of it aluminum or steel ?because I want to either blue it or anodize it
And how do you remove the barrel?! It looks pinned to me but im not exactly sure on it

Yes, barrel is pinned. Go to gunpartscorp.com, pull up the marlin 60, and there is a schematic there. Barrel retaining pin is part #3. Am not a smith (hobbyist collector of boomsticks) but sometimes can be difficult to separate aluminum receiver and steel barrel without doing damage.

Yes, they are aluminum. Go pull one of the magnets off the fridge, and test it. Most people do not have setup for home anodizing. Product by Birchwood Casey called Aluminum Black. See link- Birchwood and Casey Aluma Black Review/Overview [230Grain.com Repost] Miso Studios Benjamin Toombs

Taking a model 60 apart has caused some people to develop an unexpected proficiency in profanity.

Yeah I looked that up and decided it isn't needed but I wanted to re-blue it but it just needs a little bronze wool

The Marlin barrel is Pressed in, it is best pressed out.
Which means, you need access to a press.
It can be a royal pain...and folks have killed receivers trying to do it.

So how would you re-blue the barrel then?

the barrel is pinned in like was said. you can remove the barrel, if you are very careful. i removed mine when i cleaned it up and repainted the receiver. make some witness marks to be able to reinstall barrel correctly. place barrel in a padded vise, with a wood block on the receiver, carefully tap on the wood block to remove the receiver from the barrel. if needed, spray some penetrating oil around the barrel where it goes into the receiver. don't forget to remove the barrel retaining pin. reinstallation is simple, place barrel into vise, and line up the witness marks, also there are splines on the barrel to aid in correct orientation of the barrel to the receiver. if not correctly aligned, the barrel retaining pin will not go in all the way. carefully with the wood block, tap the receiver in until it is in all the way. replace the barrel retaining pin and that's that.

Thanks for all the advise and I saw this on another post on here and the guy put black semi gloss krylon paint on the barrel...how would that hold up in the long run?

c3shooter 10-31-2011 03:13 AM

Krylon- No. Products like Cerra-Kote, MADE for guns- yes.
