Alrighty then...

I removed the action left it complete and scrubed and sprayed it to death.
After romoving the action the bolt was still stuborn and would not go foward. I put resistance against the bolt and then put a flat head through the ejection port and pryed up on the bolt (the gun is uspide down in a gun vise BTW). It came up just a bit and went foward to the half way position, then I pulled up with my finger and it went foward all the way, and I removed it. I did not see anything obstructing the travel path except built-up carbon.

I spent 1 hour cleaning the gun, put it back-together, lubed it up, and it works smoother than ever now. 10 rounds through it this morning, no problems.

I guess it was too dirty under the bolt.

Great news! Glad you were able to get it figured out.

Not really sure how to asses it.

I tore it down again to see how dirty it got after 250 rounds this weekend and it was filthy. Cleaned it better than last time and will try again in a couple of weeks.
Maybe it craped itself while sitting next to my Moss. 500 Tact.

What was fun, is I took a friend that has only been shooting one time and that was with me and my Rem. M700 and 91/30 (he didnt like much), but after shooting 22LR he is hooked!

I disagree about springs setting in this thread. And I am delighted you got your 60 back up and running.
I'm looking to buy one in the future though I have a 981T & 983T boltactions.

Good to know what can happen...A.H

Well, Im sure you probably already know this but .22lr is naturally dirty ammo. However, a lot can be said for the brand of .22 ammo your using. Personally I find Remington GB .22 ammo is completly filthy firsty stuff and even my 10/22 dosnt care for it much. If your not already, get some CCI Mini-mag. Its great stuff ! ALso might consider Winchester Wildcat. Its fairly 'wet' ammo however (heavy in bullet lube).

Yea I wanted to shoot cheap last weekend and used the golden bullets up. I do like the CCI ammo, but it still seems my 60 gets ditry quicker then a 10/22.

KH, I have 2 suggestions. First try replacing the recoil spring, with the action locked open it could have weakened the spring. Next call Marlin and request a owners manual and they will send you one. I was given one that was taken apart & the hammer put in backwards, works great now. Marlins phone num. is 1-800-544-8892 8AM-4:30Pm EST M_F Numrich would probably have your spring.
