I took my Marlin 60. If they do it is compelling evidence that the bolt of the Marlin 60 requires a minimum energy in order to operate properly. Can't wait to get it out to the range and see how she does. This model is very rare because of the short production run, and little info is known. Thanks for sharing the pics and slides! Took the action apart last night and blasted it with cleaner.
I finely took it out shooting a couple o weeks ago and it wouldn't fire, you pull the trigger and nothing. Your model 75C probably had more of an issue with ammo. It could be because it's been used so much that the springs are getting weaker. I like it just like it is with it's honest wear and all. I agree - like the slide show!. Here's a manual online: I have one. They generally do not like hollow point bullets as they are flat nosed and longer than round nosed bullets.
Follow me on my daily video posts and adventures! Put it in a box, and opened it up 10 years later and rebuilt it. The Blazers and Remingtons both have higher muzzle energies than the Federal 135 and 150 vs 125 ft lbs respectively. But I understand what you're wanting. I did occasionally have to replace a broken firing pin or iron out a chamber from too much dry firing. I put a 3-9 Pronghorn on it when Tasco made a fairly decent scope Japan made and its a good shooter. I assume you have cleaned it well. I have some remington yellow jackets rated for 165 ft lbs.
I've read that in various configurations over 30 variants , this is the most widely produced gun in history. I bought a Ruger Mark 2 stainless with the thick taper barrel from a friend last spring. There doesn't seem to be enough blowback to activate the bolt and chamber the next round, I have to do it manually. Classic style semi-auto rifle and sold at a decent price. That trigger upgrade might be something to add as well - a good trigger plays a big role in accuracy. Next time I go shooting Ill have to try these to see if they cycle correctly. The trigger was gold plated and over the years it disappeared.
Does the squirrel stock look like this? Next time I go shooting Ill have to try these to see if they cycle correctly. Guess I'm a collector now. It was purchased by mail from Spiegel for around 50. I recently bought a 550 value brick of Federal copper plated and the rifle has problems with it. I have my circa 1974 Glenfield-Marlin 60 in very good condition with many rounds. The redesigned magazine tube was visibly shorter than the barrel, which is how rifles from this period can be easily identified. If they do it is compelling evidence that the bolt of the Marlin 60 requires a minimum energy in order to operate properly.
Has a premium walnut stock and gold fill on the roll marks, otherwise same as base model. The rifle continued as the Marlin Model 25 until 2003, which then became the Marlin 925. There are probably other forums or sites dedicated exclusively to these rifles. Shoots fine someone just cut the stock off and removed the barrel band and sights. We work hard to make the best Mississippi Gun Owners Forum! Came with a supremely durable gold-plated metal trigger instead of the standard polymer trigger, and a stainless steel breech bolt in lieu of the blue steel breech bolt on the Model 60. The duracoat will be a practical and attractive change. They are great guns, just keep thm real clean for best results.
I'm hoping some additional cleaning and lots of rounds downrange will loosen that up. I have a unique model 60 haha. Their system changed in 1971; my serial number is 26. The downside is it jams every other round. It is still being produced in. Mine dont like a dirty tube, so I make sure to clean it a couple times a year and not to put ammo I dropped or kept loose in my pocket in her.
I have only had one misfire, and that was a spent casing that wasn't ejected fast enough and got caught in the bolt. But once it manages to auto-load it works fine. A bunch of parts were missing. I am looking for the magazine tube for it. . Long story and a broken e-ring clip later I had a bunch of action parts.
We focus primarily on original factory manufactured parts with minimal wear for obsolete firearms, but also stock parts for modern firearms as well as a limited number of reproduction parts. That's less than a box of handgun ammo! I do my best to post a video everyday. She will be what I teach my grandkids with in 20 years. I bought one at either Walmart or Kmart back in 1978.
