There are a lot of posts about model 60 triggers, but I bought a kit from this person on gunbroker....

Nice pics for installation. Trigger kit installed in Marlin 70 HC. Reduced trigger pull from 5-1/2 lbs to approx. 3 lbs! Nice upgrade for the old standby.

The only downfall I found with the kit I bought on gb is that the firing pin strike were a little light. Sometimes they would not fire. I took out the firing pin and filed the sides down so the total area was about half the thickness and problem solved!

What did narrowing the firing pin accomplish, Was it to reduce friction?

I think it was more to reduce mass of the firing pin. Thus speeding up the pin movement and making it hit the case harder.

Actually because the area of the pin hitting the cartridge was so wide, it would not dent the rim. When I filed down to reduce the area, the same spring force seems to dent the rim more.

Pull was 5.5 lbs after work now 3.5 lbs. Informative sticky.
1. Polished shear w/ 600 grit, Silicon Carbide Abrasive/oil
2. Bent shear spring
3. Removed one coil from hammer spring
4. Bent (a little) trigger spring
5. Polished all surfaces that had metal to metal rubbing including the sides of the hammer.
And one final thing no one has mention for reducing the pull. I notice the POST the hammer rotates on was rough. So I polished the post and the hole on the hammer which the post slides into. Using Silicon Carbide Abrasive /oil rubbing with fingers and a Q-tip to polish the hammer post hole.

Thanks for sharing this! My 795's trigger is terrible. I already have the ceramic stones and vise to be able to do this to my rifle.

Can anyone tell me the correct size e-clip/c-clip that is used on the rear 3 pins in the Marlin 795 sear -hammer assembly? I know I can get one from Midway but I have a hardware store locally that carries them. I just don't have the rifle apart right now to measure one and need a clip and some spares.

CORRECTION: The little ones are 3/32. The big ones are 5/32.

In my haste I measured the clip and not the post. Thanks to Arrowdodger for catching my mistake.

Thanks Eric0424

I know this is an old thread, but found it on a web search. I did exactly what Eric0424 said. Same tools. Same results. First pass gave me a 4lb trigger pull on my 1993 Marlin 60. After raising the sear an additional 1/16 " on the tool vise and reworking it ( also shaving a little off the nose) I have a 3lb crisp trigger pull. With the aftermarket aluminum trigger/ guard with over travel stop, my model 60's trigger is almost perfect.

You guys probably have already figured this out, but when trying out different sear angles, I just reassembled the action and used a trigger pull gauge to pull the disconnector. That gives you quick feedback on what affect your latest mod had. The "pull weight" at that point was just about 1 lb less than what you see at the trigger of the fully assembled rifle. This also allows you to feel and see the sear creep. Be careful to catch the hammer with your thumb when doing this or the hammer will travel too far, pulling the hammer strut out of the bridge and releasing the spring. Grrrrrrrrrr

Recently received and installed a MCARBO trigger spring kit in my friend Jill's Marlin M60. The reduction in trigger weight has made a huge difference to the effectiveness of this excellent semi-auto .22LR.
MCARBO's customer service was outstanding, in fact the best CS I've ever experienced with an online seller.
This is a very nice upgrade at a very good price.

Thanks for all the contributors on this thread. I'm a total gun newb, but mechanically inclined. I just got my first gun, a Marlin 795, and did most of these mods already.

I don't have a proper trigger pull gauge, but did the bucket with water trick to get a rough idea....


Initial, brand new from the box: 4321g = 9.53 lbs

My first mod was to replace the trigger spring with a floppy disk spring.
Revised pull: 3588g = 7.91 lbs

I couldn't believe I got a 1.6 lbs reduction from that one spring!


I did all the other mods (so far) in a single sitting, so I didn't get numbers from each stage.

Mods done in second sitting:
- Polish everything!
(That was time consuming, and I could probably get some parts finished even better than they are)
- small bend to sear spring
- removed 1/2 coil on the hammer spring
Current Pull: 1763g = 3.89 lbs

Total REDUCTION: 2558g = 5.64 lbs!

I didn't mess with the sear at all, and only polished up the hammer surfaces. I don't want to get into that until after I've had a chance to break the thing in, so I don't over do it.

Less than 4 lbs is decent for a starting point, isn't it?

I picked up a Simmons Mag 22, 3-9x32 scope pretty cheap, and am just waiting on some rings to get it mounted.

Now I just have to get out to a range.



Thanks again to everyone here

Great job!!

You will find you really like shooting the marlin, and .22s are like potato chips, it's really hard to stop at one
