Greetings all! I am a first-time poster on this forum so please forgive my "Newbieness". I was given a 1972 Marlin Glenfield Model 60 .22 recently and I'm in the process of giving it a good cleaning. I really like the rifle and it is in pretty good shape for its age. My question for the experts is I am having some confusion on the hammer mechanism. I want to make sure the mechanism I have is complete and not missing any parts. I've done some research and it appears that the hammer mechanism has gone through some changes over the years of production. I haven't been able to find detailed pictures for my model so it is hard to compare my rifle's mechanism to the pictures I have found. Anyway, I thought I would post pictures here to see if someone can look at the pictures of mine and tell me if they believe it is complete or missing any parts/springs. Here they are and thanks in advance for any help:

I have 1970 model 70, the only difference is mine is mag fed and yours is tube fed. Your action looks in really good shape. Mine was missing parts and the plastic recoil stop was completely broken. But I didn't find any of that out till after about 250 rounds or so when I decided to clean it. Still shot the middle of the target out at 50 yards with iron sights.

Thanks devlgog02 for the reply. Does the action look like it is missing any parts/springs to you?

I'm not a Model 60 expert, but I do want to Welcome you to the Marlin Forum. Glad that you could join us.
There are more than 1 on here that should be able to answer your question.
The Marlin line of 22's are great. The most accurate and reliable out of the box 22 on the market, in my opinion. I currently have a 2006 mod. 60 SS with a salt and pepper laminated stock. It's a keeper.
Again, Welcome.

Thanks for the welcome greyhawk50. As you can guess by my question, I'm new to the Marlin .22's. The Glenfield was given to me by a neighbor who has since passed away and he liked to tinker with things causing me to wonder about any missing parts in the hammer mechanism. It doesn't help that different year production rifles seem to have different set ups making a picture comparison with mine a little tough for me. I'm an old hand with Mausers, Swiss, Mosin Nagants, SKS's, etc., but this is a new one on me. Hopefully someone with a lot more expertise than I have can review the pictures I posted and set me straight. Thanks again for the welcome.

Schematics are $1.50 each but if you need a schematic this may help. Otherwise Marlin website has a downloadable manual available.

Looks like this is an "old style" Glenfield 60 (no LSHO) so I guess that narrows it down a bit. Any thoughts?

Looks complete to me. I just worked on a 1984 (s/n 16xxxxxx) Model 60 and had the action all apart, it was filthy, the gun had probably never been cleaned other than a wipe down. Mine has the last shot hold open feature for the bolt. Otherwise I believe they are the same. Notice in the 3rd pic, the paperclip I put in to retain the hammer spring. This keeps it together so you don't have to try a compress the spring back on.

Thanks for the comeback, MattNH! Looks like you got it cleaned up really well. I haven't attempted to disassemble mine - too new to the set up since this is my first model 60 and there are a lot of pieces to screw something up. The LSHO piece and ejector spring were what was throwing me since my model doesn't have them. Appreciate the help!

Mauserhooked, I want to welcome you to the forum also! Sorry it's so late, but I've kinda been out of pocket lately. I also like Mausers. I have a 1943 Turk.

Hello Grumpy and thanks for the welcome. Got a couple of Turks myself. I like 'em all but would guess that I am partial to the Swedes. Have a good one!
