Source for Marlin 60 safety detent spring?



Log in to see fewer ads
Hey everyone,

My safety detent spring went flying while taking the trigger assembly apart. Numrich is out of stock and I don't see one on Ebay. Anybody know where I can buy one, or have one lying around? Tried the local hardware stores but they don't have anything small enough.

Thanks!

I've never done business with this company and know nothing about them, but they appear to have the part you need.

Springs from pens, throw-away cig lighters, any small mechanical device to be trashed are worth keeping in a bin or RX bottle for 'reapplication'.

I just ordered the DIP housing and trigger kit. Mine did NOT come with the safety detent spring. Even though it said that it could be used for my 70, the new guard recess for the safety detent was deeper than what I had so my old spring would not work. I ended up having an AR15 take down pin detent spring left laying around. It was a LITTLE smaller in diameter, but was still wide enough to stay captured under the pin. It was obviously WAY to long, so I just kept trimming it down little by little until it
1. Fit
2. Had a decent amount of pressure, but not so much that it made it hard to operate.

The safety selector on mine is not as refined as some others, so the transition over the stop is not as smooth. Itís a rather abrupt climb for the detent to cross over. I found that some slight shooting of the detent helped in the easing of the transition.

Long story short, I used an ar15 detent spring trimmed down.😁

Thanks everyone. Gives me a couple options. I wasn't too worried when it happened; figured a pen spring would do the trick, but pen springs are too big!

That little spring can really fly.

I ended up using a chunk of spring from a Bic lighter. A bit smaller diameter than I would like, but works just fine. Thanks for the help!
