Re: marlin 60 issue
...especially the Marlin 60 Beth, they get dirty fast and need a good cleaning after a couple hundred rounds or so. Just depends on what ammo you are useing and how dirty the ammo shoots.
The Winshester ammo (lead bullets) in my Marlin will REALLY make it stop working right, real fast..(as an example of ammo)
