    Does anyone make a spare parts kit for the 60? Or does anyone know a list of the most commonly needed/replaced/used/broken parts?

    Thanks

    You can buy Marlin 60 parts from Numrich Arms:

    I'll tell you what parts break commonly on a Marlin Model 60 when mine starts breaking them. So for it has been 30 years and well over 20,000 rounds and I haven't broken anything. But I did have to send it back to Marlin for some repairs. As a stupid teenager I tried to make it fire a bit quicker. I wasn't as good of a gunsmith as I thought and I ended up with a couple of doubles and a lot of jams. Marlin fixed it and sent it back to me pretty quick.

    Man, I have had mine for 24 years, have beat the hell out of it and rarely clean it, it has not broken anything.

    I have a 70P that uses basically the same parts with the exception of the magazine assembly and all the gun needed over the years was some tweaking, mainly of the ejector, to eject again reliably after heavy use and many happy rounds.

    I think there will not be a list of frequenly broken parts that can be generated...

    I've had mine since 1977 or so. It hasn't broken yet.

    I bought mine in 1987 at Service Merchandise in Cook County IL, back in the day... might have paid 95 bucks as it was.. still has the original stock and 4x scope. I love the micro groved barrels on the Marlins. It gets dragged out every year for 400-600 rounds, sprayed clean and put back in the vault. I have cooler 22s, but I just love mine. Never broke anything on it yet either. If I HAD to have a spare parts kit, I would probably just buy a used one for 60 bucks, rather than tie up 40 bucks in parts... Its pretty hard to break or wear out anything on the 60s.
