I've yet to run across a Model 60, or any semi-auto Marlin that I couldn't make run like a sewing maching in under an hour...
Possibly the easyest semi-auto action assembly I've ever worked on...
AFTER the first time, which had springs shooting across the room...LOL
Once you know what's gonna sproing off in which direction & prevent it, it gets easy
There are some Specific things to do to every one, and I've found that by using those same techniques
on other brands of rimfires, it makes them run quite nicely as well. Even a Squires-Bingham M16
I fully credit my military training in teaching me how to get a rifle properly clean.
That's the starting point. After that it's all in polishing the internals for smooth working.
Well, one other thing...USE SOLID QUALITY AMMO!!! No RGB's for ANY reason.
Remington makes the WORST .22lr ammo known to mankind.
Great centerfire, lousy rimfire.
