    I have a 1971 Marlin model 60 I am redoing for my grandson. I have refinished it both wood and metal and it actually shoots! It was thrown into an attic by someone and left there for about 20+ years after being banged around a lot. It now looks pretty good. Problem, it will not feed consistently. This model is tube fed and supposedly semi auto. I tried running 40 rounds through it of various types of 22 ammo. Ran them 5 at a time and could not get more that 2 to feed before it jammed and bent the cartridge. Any ideas out there?
    Thanks

    Feed throat

    Part number 20 on the new style rifle.
    I bet you have the old style rifle and that is part number 28a.

    Does it shave little crescent moons of lead off the rounds sometimes? That is a feed throat problem too, see this...

    Look at this pdf, it will help you take the action apart without having the springs fly everywhere.

    allin, has the tube have any dents in it?. Hopefully when you disassembled it you ran a patch or two thru the tube itself after you re-blued it.
