Question by Buckslayer1234. Uploaded on May 08, 2010
My guess is that it needs a good cleaning.
The Model 60 is a very reliable rifle. I'll bet, like Buckhunter, that a through cleaning is in order. If you clean the gun and it still jams you will have to give us more detailed information. Failure to feed, failure to extract, failure to eject, double feed etc. and then maybe someone can help. Good luck!
buckhunter is correct. Is this a new rifle? When I bought my son a #60 luckily i took it apart as directions said and cleaned the hell out of it. Even if it's not new do as directions say for cleaning. If you don't have them Marlin does on their web site.
BTW, this is a great .22 rifle for the money.
ALL guns should be cleaned immediately after shooting.
Aside from the cleaning advice, which i agree with, try a different brand of ammo. If it's an auto, try a higher velocity load.
Clean it very well and be picky about what ammo you use. I have an old 60 also and if I use W/W Wildcats or that old T-series stuff they used to market, it would gum up in no time. I feed mine Super X, clean it every now and again, and it functions fine. Good old gun for a decent price, huh?
Thank you everyone. I will try your suggestions.
I have found Winchester .22 ammunition especially the Wildcat to be very dirty and haven't used it in many years. I would have to clean my Ruger Super-Single Six after about eighteen shots because I couldn't get the bullets to fit into the cylinder.
After cleaning your rifle I suggest that you use different ammunition.
