    I bought the new Marlin Model 60SB here a while back and it came with
    the "plastic'o" T/G and that lasted the second time taking the rifle apart
    for cleaning. (was my bad, though)
    For all you Marlin 60 owners out there, I would Highly recommend the
    replacement T/G and Trigger from Dip Tech's, as I did with mine.
    The top of the trigger can be set with a set screw and totally makes the
    "pull" alot more crisp and with the setting of the trigger travel, after
    a few rounds of getting "used" to it....makes a world of difference, IMO.
    It's worth the extra bucks and I'll have a range report soon.

    So far, weather it's the new replacement parts or it's just one of those
    "nicely" made "few", I'm not sure...but highly accurate and the groups it's
    putting out is almost amazing to me. Range report soon.

    Very nice Dale. A hansom rig and that new T/G looks like it will do the job.

    I love my DIP setup on my 60SS. The trigger is way better than the original and of course so is the tg. I would definitely buy again and I probably will at some point. I have two other Marlins that could use that treatment.

    Thanks Todd, the trigger sure makes a "big" difference!
    I sure apprciate the link to DIP that you shared CJ!
    If I ever get another Model 60, I'll hands down, do the same up-grade.

    I am going to the range on Thursday and will get my Marlin 60W out of the cabinet and dust it off. It is bone stock so will be paying attention to the trigger. Been a while and I don't remember it being particularly poor. But I have put Volquartzen trigger kits in my 10/22 and both MK III and they are NICE so the Marlin has something to live up to.

    I didnt really have much of an "issue" with the factory trigger in the Marlin but being's
    I was going with the new trigger guard I figured, (thinking it was an extra 20 some bucks)
    for the trigger I'd go that route. It was well worth it!
    For whatever reason, it took a few rounds and some adjusting the trigger travel set screw
    to get used too, as you can take about all the trigger travel out of it.
    Kind of differnt!
