Does anyone know the correct way to disassemble the inner mag tube, if possible, for the Mod 60? Seems like the spring is binding inside and doesn't feed the entire contents of the mag. The follower doesn't engage the spring unless it's pushed about 3 inches into the tube.

Numrich or Brownell's have some good exploded veiws and schematics of the M60. numrich is also a good source for parts for the M60 rifles.

sounds like either the innet tube may have a dent or ding or slightly bent, or possibly the spring is getting weak. either of which should be easy fixes.

No one has an exploded view of the inner mag tube. And yes, it would prolly be easy to fix IF I COULD FIGURE OUT HOW TO DISASSEMBLE IT!

Oafdawg, do me a favor take some detailed pictures of the part you are trying to disassemble and i will look at mine and see if we can get your problem fixed or see what parts you might need to order.

It's the inner magazine tube. Seems like either the spring inside is binding or somehow got shorter. The orange follower can go about 3" into the tube before it hits the spring.

This is just a stock photo. The one I have the orange follower does not stick out from spring pressure, it must be pulled out or allowed to just fall out from gravity if I tilt the tube down. I need to disassemble this tube. The pin that locks the inner tube to the outer will not come out with a punch and I see no other way to take it apart.

Yes, I know Numrich has tubes (nobody else seems to have any in stock) but I figured if I could get it apart I might be able to save the owner 30 bucks by getting it open to see what was wrong inside. It belongs to the guy who's rebuilding my uncles 1928 Model A Ford roadster. If I could get at the guts of it I'm sure I have a spring around to fit it.
