No, it is not the recoil spring guide.When you take the trigger mechanisim out it is located in the rear of that piece. It is easy enough to replace.When u order one you will recognize the part. As far as the firing pin goes,shoot the rifle and look at the mark on the empty cartridge,it should be a very noticeable strike on the .22 case.

If not you can take the pin out and bevel the edge slightly, both sides.This little operation worked like a charm for me. Have fun, call if you like I have four 60's. 978-424-7024 Cliff

It could be,does it fire? Changing the hammer spring is no big deal, there is a great video of on the internet. I would suggest you not dry fire the rifle. When this is done, the firing pin will hit outer chamber of your rifle and peen it over,and or dull the firing pin. Keep in mind the cartridge act as a shock absorber they sell snap caps for .22 cartridges.

You can also use the plastic mollys for a snap cap. I believe the yellow ones will fit the chamber.

Check the cartridge case of a fired and the misfire and look for the firing pin strike. The amount the firing pin sticks out sounds about right. You can get the hammer spring from Numrich and I believe you can modify the new firing pin to fit yours. I have an older model 60 and I got all my parts from Numrich.Do not hesitate to give me a call if need be.:) Cliff
