      If you Oh, and if U have an older 60/795, keep an eye on the recoil springs & buffer...change every 20 years or so,
      or if you start having a lot of stovepipe issues that aren't ammo-related (Remington ammo)

      Good Luck!

      just ordered recoil spring for my dads late 70s model 60.He has never replaced the recoil spring in it

      Thanks for the info big shrek

      Clean 'em as you would an AR15, as in, after every range visit/hunting trip.
      Don't have to worry much about cleaning the barrel, just the action & those two divots on each side of the chamber,
      and the trigger guard...which helps the feel of the trigger...as burnt powder gets down in there...
      avoid Remington Rimfire ammo...very dirty and tends to be out of spec...causes headaches...
      Periodically the tube mag and box magazines need to be cleaned out, I've used a .410 brush on the tube mag,
      and the 795 mags are cleaned like any other box mag...

      hey big Shrek I own a marlin 795 and my dad owns a marlin 60 so I was wondering if there was anything we have to watch out for on those guns like how often should they be cleaned or other stuff like that.

      by the way his 60 is late 70s and mine brand new

      your thread Marlin 60/795 Accessories is what got me started on Gun and Game

      Glad to hear your doing alright.
      Playing Mr. Mom is no fun, but eventually it will start to get a bit easier.
      I passed your message onto others, who were also worried.
      Still have you in my morning prayers.

      Take care, be safe.
      God bless.

      big shrek thanks for the help. Figured there was a spring or something that went haywire. I'm think order new and replace. The original probably never been replaced.

      big shrek since you be the Marlin Master, He He. I has a question for ya. You know I picked up that little Marlin 99. I have fired Winchester bulk thru it and Blazer 40 gr. Now what it is doing is spiting out the empty but the bolt is catching the empty and jamin up. It does it more with the Winchester than with the Blazers. But it is still happening.

      I have cleaned it up and oiled it up a bit, and still happens. Is there an adjustment or a sping that might need some attention? And if so I sure hope that the Marlin is as easy to work on as the Ruger. I saved all the instrutional videos you passed on to me on my computer. So when I do something I sit with the rifle in front of me and watch the videos and stop and start as needed. Thanks for your help.

      big shrek thanks for sending all the info. What I am finding on this litle 99 is out of 9 rounds 2 to 3 rounds get hung up in chambering. The round will try making it into the bore and the bolt is slaming against the bullet before it makes it in, sometimes damaging the casing and sometimes hitting the lead and losing it a little from the casing. Then I have maually remove the bullet. And sometimes the new round is trying to make it into the bore and the bolt is closing on the ejecting casing. On the bright side there are those times that I get to pop off a full 9 rounds with out any mishaps. Is this a sign of being dirty (which I know it is) or is there some adjustment being needed? I hope it's simple. Cause if I gotta do adjustment on I had better get my eyes rechecked and get new glasses so I can see what I am doing. LOL. I will sit down and read all the items you sent. It's Christmas and at times not enough hours in a day. You and yours have a Merrry Christmas.

      Marlin 60 & 795 trigger work... - RimfireCentral.com Forums

      Those ought to get you started pretty well, RFC is a HUGE help...learned most of what I know there :)
      Anything that's done to the Marlin 60 (Old Style) applies to the 99-series.

      Ok thanks, by D/T, you mean dove tailed his receiver? I don't mind drilling and tapping it to accept a DIP rail, just want it to look good as well as something that's not gonna cost me an arm and leg nor have to spend hours getting it set up. Just want it to look sharp. Is DIP the only company you know of that has the channeled scopt mount rail that fits over the Marlin 60 dovetail? Still weighing my options at this point. I've had that nickname since high school but I'm a guy...LOL I'm in Naples FLorida on the west coast. What part of Fla you from? I have an uncle Carl up around Chipola/Marianna. Very beautiful there!! Jsut no work unless your rich or retired and well off...lol

      Saw an older post in reference to scope mounting on Marlin 60's and other Marlin's. Jsut wondering what you came up with. I have a 1979 Model 60 that has sentimental value, sent it out and spent way too much on Cerakote and a beautiful Boyd's thumbhole stock. But running into issues with the scope mount. If I knew then what I know now, I probably would've had the dovetail milled off or sectioned to mount a flat scope mount that can be drilled and tapped BEFORE I had it cerakoted. Only company I see that offers any sort of scope mount that fits is DIP. Did you ever come up with anything different? I would rather have a mount that is drilled and tapped then simply mounted/clamped to the top dove tail. Any ideas? Any other companies doing stuff different or offering anything I could use at this point? I don't plan on remounting the open sights so that isn't an issue. Let me know what you think. Thanks!!!
