Model 60 action assembly



Log in to see fewer ads
My daughter and I put together a PowerPoint slide show on how to tear-down and re-assemble the Model 60 Action assembly. OttoMears was kind enough to create a PDF of it and BWGSTOCK was kind enough to reduce the file size. Thank you John and Bryan.

Or YouTube video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3oF8QHgVzH8

Additional Youtube video with tricks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKFiTHkhkDU

Earlier, I was not sure how to upload it for public access, but with help from other RFC members, in subsequent posts on this thread, we were able to do it. Enjoy !

You could upload the file to a file sharing site like snapdrive.net and then share a link to the file here. There are many other such sites but snapdrive is the one I use. I'm sure many of us here would be very interested to see what you've created.

Thanks Specter. I posted it on 4Shared.com. Snapdrive would not accept a .pps file.

Should be a sticky

Hey, that's a really good, thorough job you did on the presentation. The clear pictures and concise explanations make it seem even easier to me and I've disassembled a few of these in my time. You even taught me a thing or two I didn't already know that will make it easier for the next time I have to tear one down. I don't think there is anything else that a person would need to know in order to disassemble and reassemble one of these actions. This is something that should definitely be added as a sticky for all to see.

Do I have to "login/register" to look at the file?

I get "click here to download" and nothing happens.

Not sure how to post it most efficiently, but if anyone wants to view it here are 2 links.
The Powerpoint slide show is now a different version so it may be more friendly to your systems.
I updated this so you can see:

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.

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!
