    first did marlin ever make one with a gold trigger? the take down screw is suppose to be black right? what spring gets replaced after 15 years? Gun only has 1500 rnds thru it, if he is not lying to me, should i still replace spring? bought this gun for $50 keeps jamming i am going to tinker to see if i can fix it he told me he cleaned it before giving it to me whell just took it apart and there is ever dirt in the stock where the action goes?

    Clean all the gunk out of the receiver and make sure the extractor groove is clean too. The model 60 is pretty easy to take down, remove the stock and trigger group and give it a good cleaning. Once clean, you'll likely have no more jamming issues. Nice buy for $50 Beth!! I don't think they ever made a model 60 with a gold trigger that I know of, but several other marlins have had them.

    Looks like you have a little wood work to do to get that name (or whatever it is) rubbed out. Some extra fine sand paper or emory and get a nice stain or wood finish to make it look almost new again. ;)

    Make sure you've got the right size screwdriver bit and give it some ummpfffh, it may be a bit tight if it hasn't been removed in awhile.

    Beth,
    I've seen some of the Marlin60/Glenfield commemorative rifles with gold triggers. They made quite a few of the commemorative models.:)

    That is an incorrect replaced screw. May not even be the correct thread pitch. Also, you appear to be missing the bolt release lever.

    Definitely a different screw. But i dont think its missing the bolt release lever. It looks like an older model marlin/glenfield 60 in a newer model stock. The bolt release models so far as I know all have round charging handles, that one is the older flat hook style. But I suppose that could have been changed out as well.

    Just get a proper fitting screwdriver and give it a good twist. I doubt its the wrong thread pitch, the screw is too small in diameter to make it to the stock in a hole it isnt threaded for and would have broken off if the threads didnt fit. Probably just turned in too tight. Or somebody thought it needed some loc tite. either way elbow grease is the way to get er off.

    I guess what I am confused about is if the action is out of the stock, what is keeping the rear takedown screw in?

    Correct rear takedown screw and charging handle:

    Get a good fitting screwdriver and lightly tap the handle with a hammer while you try to turn it.

    Yeah someone replaced that screw with a different screw, maybe D/T the hole to a biger thread too because it looks like the screw actually threads thru the trigger guard too.

    Beth to remove the trigger guard from there just undo the front guard screw and nut and it should come off easily.

    see if the front takedown screw fits it, they are the same thread pitch and diameter screw from the factory.

    If the screw is in that tight that could be contributing to the reason it is jamming as well. The 60 doesn't like it that tight.
