Marlin Model 60 Login/Join

Recently I posted about a Model 60 that I am going to get from my brother. Thank you all for the responses. One thing that came up was the need to replace buffers from time to time. I have a Model 60 that has a cracked stock. Could this be the cause of the crack? Does anyone know if this can be repaired or must the stock be replaced? Thanks

not sure, I just bought my first model 60 a while back. It is a dream little shooter.

Some cracks can be repaired, some can't. Some repairs are ugly but serviceable. Some are invisible. Depends.
It also depends on what your time is worth. You could just replace it:

I seriously doubt a cracked stock on a model 60 could be caused by failure to replace
the buffers

Pal - Slightly off topic but being in a family that started with Marlin Model 60 rifles (we had 4 when the two boys were growing up) the BEST $20.00 we ever spent was this reloading device.....Both my sons still have their Model 60 rifles and both still have the two reloading tubes we used to use 20 years ago....Mark

I've had my 60 since 1996, no parts have ever been replaced & it's had many thousands of rounds of rapid fire through it by an overzealous teenager.

More recently I put a ln adjustable straight trigger in it, a minor change but the trigger is a bit better. Won it in a karma here & don't recall the brand.

Thanks for the replies. And the links. I've had this gun for fifty years. (gosh that makes me seem old) I don't shoot it as much anymore but would like to keep the original stock if possible. Any more info on this would be great.

I'm not familiar with the model 60. BUT, on the Marlin Camp 9 or Camp 45 carbines, a bad buffer will absolutely crack the stocks on them. A company makes Delron buffers for the Camp guns that are far superior to the factory Marlin ones.

I can't imagine the stock not being repairable. I assume the crack is at the wrist?

I have a couple 80s with the 22" barrel and last round hold open. replacing the buffer is definitely easier in the later iterations.

yep, Marlin 22s are habit forming.
