wm17959: There are a number of videos showing how to do this but I like yours the best. I have a Marlin Papoose takedown rifle but I'm sure it's the same.
Larry Evans: This video helped me clean my new/used mod60 I just picked up. It was so dirty, I run it under kitchen sink, with a plastic brush, because there was no other way to get the nasty out. It was the dirtiest gun ever. Never cleaned. Anyways thanks. And my plastic bushing discinigrated, and fell out in 3 pieces when I lifted the bottom receiver. Any ideas on how important that is??
joesbarandgrill100: I swear that recoil spring is impossible
brentfoto: Is it really necessary lift out bolt, charging handle and recoil spring and guide rod to effectuate a decent cleaning, or can one just spray in that area with aerosol solvent and later oil, thus avoiding the bent recoil spring problem some apparently encounter in reassembly? BTW, good video!
Richard Fabbri: Cool video!1
Jeff K: Before your next video, blow your nose. And be aware you clear your throat nearly every time you start talking again.
Cliff Yablonski: Great video, you make replacing the recoil spring look so easy, it's still a pain in the %$#@ for me. Other than that it's a great rifle.
Darren Ridings: Thanks so much for the video. I have had my model 60 for about 8 years and have never field stripped it. I just ran a bore snake through and called it good. I have always been afraid to take it down. The only other firearm I have had was a HR topper model 12gu. Not much work to that one. I followed the video, paused it to spray, clean, brush and wipe clean; up paused it and put it back together. I am a firearm enthusiast, but am afraid of tearing it down and never getting it back together. This video was dummy friendly. Thanks again.
Nate Ngzcaz: This is the kind of video 90 percent of owners can readily understand and are capable of doing. Its amazing how many other videos are so confusing. Break it down to where you have it and with the stock off, spray everything else liberally with Breakleen and then blow it with an air hose. A very small amount of synthetic motor oil ( I use clock oil ) in selected areas and you're good to go. Many owners could go years w/out any further breakdown and cleaning than this.
The Bruce (prepare4glory115): Thanks for the video. Showed me what I needed to know.
charles huckabee: Thanks!
Frank J. Figerle (Your Fuller Brush Man): stop clearing your throat it will drive a person nuts watching the video. Dont you listen to yourself before posting.
Bryan Volkers: My step dad inherited his from a family member that was used in a war and when I took it apart everything was in good condition just need to get the rust off
Joseph Zepeda: My charging bolt is stuck open any tips?
HUNTFISHTRAPOHIO: Those screws are cheap look up brownells.com they have basically everything for a marlin model 60 all the screws triggers guards everything
John Hattabaugh: just picked up an older marlin m-60 (made in '83 or '84, can we say normal magazine capacity?) from a buddy at work. i finally know how to get the charging handle out...never owned a marlin before...sorry for my ignorance on that. i'll be replacing the handle soon, as i think it's worn out, very sloppy tollerance. plus the stock looks like garbage. but once i'm done, i'll have a marlin to be happy with. but i digress...thanks for the info, and good video. and as always: semper fi, carry on!
bigjohn22: I bent the spring but fixed it with some needle nose pliers and got to have lots of finger strength to get it back in with bending it
JOHN F: JUST BOUGHT ONE OF THESE AND SAW THIS VIDEO AND TOOK MINE APART. THIS DAMM SPRING IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO GET BACK IN AND I HAVE BENT TWO OF THEM AND NOT EVEN CLOSE TO GETTING IT BACK TOGEATHER. SEND TO FACTORY FOR 5 REPLACEMNT SPRINGS AND THEY CHARGED ME FOR 5 AND SENT ME ONE. BENT IT TOO. WILL GET ANOTHER SPRING SOON AND TAKE TO A GUN SMITH TO SEE IF HE CAN PUT THIS TOGEATHER THEN I WILL DUMP THIS PIECE OF CRP BECAUSE I CAN SEE THIS WILL BE A CONTINUING PROBLEM WHICH I DONT WANT TO DEAL WITH.
Jim Nygaard: Thanks for your video. I tried to remove my barrel without first removing the trigger screw and broke my trigger mechanism (poor plastic). I hope some JB works for me.
Nice clean rifle again...
Arlen Leffmann: Thank you I just fixed mine by watchin your video. Its been broke for 6 months.
