    I was working on my Marlin 60,

    replacing the buffer the other day,

    when one of the really small E-clips

    popped off the side of the receiver

    assembly, and hit the floor running.

    It's probably heading to Wyoming for vacation.

    Hope it sends a postcard. Or not.


    The point is, there's 4 E-clips on this

    plate, and 3 of them are very small.

    After spending a lot of time at the hardware

    and home improvement stores, I decided to try

    the auto parts store.


    In the Dorman "Help" (red blister packs) section

    they have an E-clip assortment for @4.59.

    It had the small clips I need to fix the Model

    60, and an assortment I'm sure will come in handy

    in the future.

    Interestingly enough, I got the Marlin 60 buffer from Brownells. And it was

    on my doorstep in about 3 days.

    I just wanted to pick these up. No net, no ordering, no further

    delays re-assembling my rifle.

    I have been able to find stuff like that at a local store called Mesa Bearing. They sell bearings and seals, stuff like that. I have also found E clips, C clips and other odd ball stuff.
