Re: Ruger 10/22 vs Marlin 60
Hi, I got a Marlin Model 60 from a friend who asked me to give it a good cleaning for him, It was in flithy condition but I stripped it down and cleaned everything giving it a very light lube (like I do on my Remington 870).
One "problem" (I think its a problem...) I see is the brass ammo tube is super tight, I cannot unlock it and remove it with just my fingers but need pliers or at the very least a rag to get grip on it.
I thought maybe there was rust in the tube, I checked down it and gave it a very good cleaning as well, but the brass tube is still super tight.
Is it meant to be like this?, if not has anyone had this issue?
Any advice would be really appreciated as its a really nice lill firearm now that its all in good shape, this last issue is just driving me nuts.
