I have an old marlin 60 that was left to me by my grandpa I have had alot of trouble with jamming. I have used all types of ammunition in it and all of it ending in the same result i have been told by some friends of mine that they have been able to switch to a tighter firing pin spring and solved the problem does anyone kow if this works or is even possible thank you for your time

Yes, could work and possible. But, if you havent yet, you might need to take it down and give it a GOOD cleaning.

Beings it's an older Marlin and with the problems your haveing it may need a new hammer spring. I'm not an expert on Marlins and there are alot of good folks in here that are. You may want to post your thread in Tech. Questions forum.
And welcom to the forum buckshot!

BigShiek seems to be one of the local experts when it come to Marlins. He has a thread on the forum talking to some of the problems. Give it a read and see if it helps. Send him a PM about your problem and see if he can help. I shoot mine but am no expert on fixing problems, ha.
And of course.........
lube it up with
Silver Bullet Gun Oil

You dont want a tighter firing pin spring, you need a new recoil spring is all. You can order them and just about any other marlin 60 part here.
its out of stock at midway til 12 march so try here too.
Its in stock at Numrichs.. and cheaper too.
Might also consider a new feed throat, recoil buffer and cartrdge lifter spring too. If you replace all 4 parts the rifle will run like new.
