    The 600 was a Store Brand sold thru Coast to Coast/Big 5 stores.
    It's a 60, just by another name.

    Here's a pretty much complete Store Brand Listing of Marlins :)

    Welcome Spade29. Your little Marlin is not worth a lot of money as a collector fire arm but it is one of the nicest little semi auto shooters made. I also have one just like yours. Read "Model721's" post #28 in this thread for a bit of history on the 60W. Most of them will be in the $100 to $150 price range today depending on condition. If it was still like new with the original box and equipment it might bring a little more to a collector but they made a ton of Model 60's and are still putting them out. It is a great shooter so take it out and enjoy it. I was just shooting mine yesterday.

    The 60W is a special run Safety, Ethics, and Sportsmanship series and has a medallion embedded into the stock. It was meant to encourage adult shooters to teach young and beginning shooters proper safety, ethics and sportsmanship in the use of firearms. Other than the cosmetic differences it is the same as a regular 60. It does not have a walnut stock. They are not worth more than regular 60's. And it wasn't a store brand of the 60.

    I just bought a marlin 22 60w from my brother in law. He couldnt suite figure out why it was jamming. So I took it a part to clean, and thats when I found out what was wrong. Threw recoil spring was bent (the nice way of putting it). I can not find the spring anywhere. Is there a difference between the 60 and 60w when it comes to ordering parts?

    It's just a Marlin Model 60 made for Walmart. Nothing more, nothing less.

    The "W" doesn't stand for Walmart or Walnut, see CJ's post #35
