I have a question, what type of muzzle crown is on a sporter with the finger groove stock? And what do you think the value of one is in fair shape

Flat muzzle. No crown. Blued muzzle. Mine is pretty nice and I gave $450 for it. A tad high, but hard to find these in any condition but poor. Big Larry

$175 isn't a bad price. I see them go from $100-$200 depending on condition on online auctions.

There was a M60-A target rifle with original Kerr sling on a Web Site recently for close to $1,000. One of the rarest standard model 22's. It was like new. I would have been a player but I already have a very nice one. It too has the Kerr Sling.
$175 seems like a good deal for a M60-A Sporter if it is all original and correct. Big Larry

Cool Winchester 60A

Greetings, I just joined this list because it may hold the answers to some of my questions, and because the list participants have a wealth of knowledge. I have a model 60A that I picked up awhile back and I have just got around to going through it to clean it up and do what repairs are needed. Try as I might I can't find any repair manuals on the model; no exploded drawings; no how to disassemble and reassemble the rifle. Are there any written books or articles available you could direct me to? I would like to get it back into a shooter, so I'll most likely re-blue the metal and refinish the stock. Any thoughts would be of great help.
Thanks

It's pretty easy to work on the model 60. Not many parts.

Here's a link to a manual if you're interested:

nothing to them really, the only real dissasembly is with the bolt if absolutely necessary, unless you are refinishing the bolt or need to replace a spring, I would worry about it.

I picked one up for 100 with the stock busted in a couple places. Repaired and refinished the stock, cleaned up the metal. Glad to have it. The only one I have ever seen in person.

No reason to take the bolt apart unless as stated a spring is broken. I find a good cleaning will get rid of the old dried oil and gunk. Place it in a small glass dish cover with kroil and leave for a few days. Brush with an old tooth brush after a couple of days to remove loosened crap.When clean spray down with gun scrubber, blow dry with air and oil lightly.
Have a great day
Jay

Thank you Rob. That's exactly what I was looking for. I've ordered the e version (I don't believe they have a printed version). I realize the take-down is not overly complicated, but what I was trying to avoid is a misstep which would break or damage one or more parts (I have been known for that).

The bolt is one of the problems. Whoever owned this rifle before used some heavy grease that over the years has congealed and makes the bolt hard to operate. I will start with a good cleaning before I decide to strip the bolt.

Jay I appreciate your thoughts and will try degreasing the bolt first. I might mention that the bolt would not release the trigger since the trigger was not in contact with the sear. So clean first, then investigate. Good thoughts!

The trigger needs to be pushed forward when putting the rifle into the stock. It drops in and slides back.
