tuning trigger on marlin 60
 
On tuning the trigger how would you do it mine isn't very gritty but it has alot of takup
I've heard you cut 1 coil off of the hammer spring to lighten it
But how do you eliminate the take up?

sorry, no input on this as my trigger on mine is stock as far as i know and seems to work fine as is. won't modify mine until i have some information too. maybe someone with more experiance with triggers on M60's will post sme information on it.

Put a bead off from a dog tag chain in the return springs hole on the trigger sear

I dont have a model 60 at the moment but i can show you on my 882 since its about the same setup if its an old 60.

That's an interesting solution to that problem.

have not worked on a 60 but start by polishing. clean up the machine marks but leave the angles the same. then study how the trigger works overtravel is mostly a easy fix .take up some place there is a void to be filled. pull go slow and carefull do not try to go to light. polishing(and stoning) makes a big difference

This month's 'American gunsmith' has a very good article on working the 60's
trigger. firing mech. comes out in one unit and can not be disassembled by
the public. ( it takes a special jig to line every thing up properly.)
Article tells how to drill thru side of unit to get to points needing work.

HTH, Mike
