Does the gun start to jam once it gets dirty?
I will say some ammo (LRN) takes a little more care, but all in all my Marlin 60 seems to not care too much about cleaning... I am just anal about cleaning my guns.
In squirrel season though, I usually foul the barrel with 10-20 rounds and leave it-- I just clean the outside and q-tip what I can with the bolt to the rear...
But....you need to clean these extra good though..... they have lots of places for gunk to hide and cause problems....
That says it all. I do wipe it down to prevent rust after each use
.22s are different from center fires in how often they need to be cleaned. As a general rule of thumb, I only clean a .22 when the accuracy falls off or it has feeding problems.
I do wipe all exterior surfaces with an oily rag after I shoot though.
Does the 60 action like to be oiled up good? Or do they run better on the dryer side?
Excess oil attracts crud. Lightly oil or use a dry lube.
+1, I have only cleaned mine once in 3 years
NOTREMINGTON!!!! This would be the equivalent of washing a pig off, with muddy water.
After that, clean again real good, should function and eat up anything you like after that.
If not all that, then clean in any month that begins with the letter 'R'.
A 60 can take it...
