You are very welcome. My daughter, Lucy is home for the weekend from school and I just updated her on the RFC notations here. She thinks it's pretty cool how we all help each other out.

Kudos

Thanks for putting this together, ArrowDodger. I printed the entire PDF file with photos and used them as a visual aid to break down a new M60 DLX action.

For any other newbies (like me) that are hesitating to try this, I say go for it. One other tip that helped me immensely was laying out a piece of cardboard with rows pf double-stick tape on it. I looked at the photos to orient myself, and each piece went on the tape in the order removed. I'm kinda anal about stuff like that.

With the action now completely apart, I was able to lightly polish the hammer and sear, and am replacing the springs with a J&P spring kit. Those little e-clips were a challenge, at first, but the only real glitch I had was when taking apart the trigger mechanism to build up the new DIP trigger housing - there's a small safety plunger spring that caught me by surprise when it launched and bounced off my forehead. Fortunately it landed on the table right in front of me.

Kudos, sir, to both you and your daughter. You have done well.

Thumbs up

Thanks ArrowDodger, this is a great tutorial. I open it and review each step during breakdown and reassembly. It worked first time and every time! Without this help I would have been stuck with my 10lb trigger. Now it's silky smooth.

Hey gang,

When did Model 60's get the last shot open bolt design? Mine is from '81 and doesn't have this feature......I assume that I could still use this tutorial for my gun?

Thanks!

Greg

Yes, you just have one less spring and lever, in your case. I'm thinking around 84 is when LSHO was added.

Thanks, ArrowDodger!

I just completed repairing my old Model 60's lower assembly...a job I've put off for years because I didn't have a decent guide to attempt the job myself.

I scored decent parts off of Ebay and followed your guide--it's well done!

She's back together and the action is working well. I look forward to getting the old girl out shooting again soon!

Thanks!

Greg

Thanks for these instructions! They made it very easy to replace the springs and firing pin in my Model 6085. I got it for Christmas in 1985. Tearing the action apart also gave me a chance to clean off all the lube I thought I needed to use when I was a kid. Now it shoots like it did when it was brand new. Thanks again!

Great tutorial! I need a little clarification though...

I have one of the new "Marlin-ton" 60's from the Remmy plant. I just did the trigger job and seem to have received great results. My situation comes from an apparent change in the new production process.

In the tutorial, the sear spring has the long leg the plugs into a hole on the side of the plate. the leg on mine is completely straight (no dog-legs). It has no hook to plug into the side of the plate nor is there a hole there in the side of the plate. With that being said, there is no obvious spot to attach the leg in order to get any tension.

I ended up placing it over the post the ejector\lifter spring goes over and it seems to work. It almost seems there's too much tension on the sear spring now but that's the only location I could find for it to fit. Yes, I didn't pay enough attention before disassembly...

Does anyone with one of the new M60's happen to know? Or, it the serial # on yours begins with MM can you check and report back?

Thanks for any and all help!
