Default Glenfield Model 60 remodel (hammer deformity?)

Just acquired a Glenfield Model 60 from Dad. Looks like a birch stock, 22" barrel, 18 rounder. As far as I can tell, it's not worth a lot, so I'm refinishing the stock, and will probably do a home blueing (barrel has some pretty decent rust on it, and definitely pitted. Project time!

Question though, the hammer sounds "weak" when fired, and closer inspection shows that the hammer face has a little pit where it strikes the firing pin. Is this common? Does year matter much when buying a replacement? The serial starts with 693.

Thanks guys.

If it fires, it's not a problem. Also, the feed throat wears out on the older ones and they become jam-o-matics. Easy fix and they work beautiful when done.

No idea yet if it fires. I honestly started this just to see if I have enough skills to refinish a rifle I actually care about. The stock's looking good so far! We'll see how the bluing goes.

I have a marlin 99C which is a variant of the model 60 about 40 years old I got it hen I was 15 and quit shooting it when it became a jam-O-matic.
I just ordered one of the feed throat kits and Im anxious to see if it works.

Just a guess but it may need a new magazine tube spring.
That or an ejector or extractor.
Or maybe a recoil spring if it got bent at some point

No dry-firing by me, I swear! I just got the thing! It seems like the newer hammers don't have the "forked" design of the old. Thankfully the firing pin looks great, though.

Here's a dry fit of the exterior after sand & reblue on the barrel and feed tube, sand (and sand and sand...), stain, and tru-oil on stock, and black rattlecan on the cheap *** aluminum receiver/ front sight/ trigger guard. Looks like none of the rust was as deep as it seemed, almost no pitting left on anything.

Can't really tell from the picture, but newbie alert: don't plaster the stippling with tru oil and leave it overnight. Now on to the guts while I let the finishes harden.

Meant a photo of the hammer hehe.
I'm 90% sure you can use the new solid hammer over the old forked one. Guess at a point they felt they where weaker and could crack

But the refurb is looking good.
For the internal tuning I would watch FOG CITY TACTICALS videos.

And also DUDE'S

Yes the videos say for the 795 and 70 but internally they are practically the same.

btw make sure your buffer is in good shape too!

Another good resource for Marlin help is http://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums...splay.php?f=20

Heh, here's the hammer.


the buffer looks ok, though it is a 65 yr old piece of plastic.

And thanks for the links!

Well, here's the final assembly. Wasn't too happy with that last coat of tru-oil, a few runs here and there, but I'm going to hit the range with it before I worry about fixing them.


Bonus pic of the next project! Anyone happen to have a buttplate for this thing lying around? Seems to be out of stock everywhere I look.

the new and old style hammers are interchangeable, I would also get a new buffer and highly recommend the J&P spring kit. sorry no leads on a buttplate.

I've got the J&P recoil springs in one of my Model 60's and it seems to have helped out quite a bit.

Confirmed at the range today, only 2 out of three or so would fire off. Seems like a fun little plinker once I get it going though.
