    A lot of experienced shooters rarely clean .22's. I let mine go until accuracy starts to fall off or I start getting malfunctions. Once you start having problems a good thorough cleaning is usually the first thing done.

    Fellerette - I'm hangin' onto this thread like my Ex used to hang onto her daily soap operas. I'd bet that a good cleaning will restore that .22. I've seen folks bring .22 semi-autos to our Gun Club range so gunked-up that the bolt would hardly move, and then they'd wonder why 'ole reliable' wasn't working.

    Some shooters will clean their .22s every other year whether they need to or not. I clean my .22s after every outing. Maybe it's just my military training, but I can't put a firearm away dirty. Besides, if you like to shoot and enjoy firearms, why not spend the time caring for them? They will stay in better shape and last much longer. But that's just my humble opinion - Jim.

    My uncle gave me his Marlin 60 after it "didn't work". He told me that he never cared to clean it and gave it to me. I cleaned it inside and took it to the range, and still would just go 'click' with no bang. It was around that time I joined this forum to seek help to fix the Marlin, following your guys' instruction, I then took EVERYTHING apart again and got a bunch of sand out from the trigger group... next time at the range, it would fire sooometimes, just randomly, another breakdown, I noticed the firing pin was bent and couldnt even wiggle in its slot, and it didn't protrude out from the bolt to strike the brass rim. So I orderend and replaced that firing pin, and the Marlin Model 60SS has never had a problem since. Feeds clean CCIs as well as dirty old waxy Remingtons... Never thought a rimfire could be so reliable. (After you solve a major problem)
