Default 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?

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

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
