    Marlin Model 60 Parts

    I need a new magazing spring rod for my Marlin Model 60. I ordered one about 9 months ago from Brownells but the shipping date keeps getting moved. The rifle works well but the mag spring is not strong enough anymore to chamber the last round. Anyone have any ideas?

    I tried to push the envelope, but found that it was stationery.

    Have you heard about the new corduroy pillows? They're making head lines!

    ltorlo64, try contacting the people at Jack First Gunshop - 605-343-9544. They have a website and are similar to Numrich but you can't really see anything or order from it. Hope this helps!

    After today, it's all historical.

    Did you try contacting Marlin to see if they would sell you a mag spring?

    I will try again. I looked about a year ago and they did not sell replacement parts, at least not through the website. They did provide good advice in looking for the correct spring. They have three different lengths and you want to get the right one. If you don't, it won't fit and it won't work.

    Ok this is a tube magazine fed rifle. So the spring is a big coil type spring right? Take out the spring and place it on a large hard flat surface. Find a steel rod that is a bit larger than the gap between the coils. I have used a round shanked Phillips screw driver to do this on coil springs. Press down between the coils and shove forward on the rod. This will "Roll" the spring and work the rod down it's length spreading the coils apart.

    (Be careful to not get too wide a rod, you might kink the spring coils.)

    If done correctly this will restore power to the spring for a goodly period of time. This should allow you to source a replacement and still have the weapon function until the new spring arrives.

    Thanks. I will take a look at this. I had though about pulling on the spring to return it to its original size, but didn't want to break the only mag spring I have. This may work better.

    Just called Jack First. Turns out that Marlin was sold to Remington and Remington is not producing repair parts for the older rifles, which mine qualifies as. I think I am going to try Shuetz's idea to get it working. If that works I will sell the rifle and replace it with a Remington or a Ruger, or maybe one of those Henry lever actions. Anyway, the first step is to repair this one so it will load all rounds from the magazine.

    Yea. I even looked at repair kits but none are for the Model 60. I think restretching the spring is my best bet.
