Following story about the 1973 .22lr marlin I inherited 2months ago My Marlin 60 needs a trip to the gunsmith now cause my barrel has developed a wobble, a metal piece on the trigger housing broke off (not critical) and I put a kink in the spring that pushes the action back :cry: course then again, in the two months that I have owned it I have put over 13000 rnds through it. I can hit a 5in x 5in target at 400yrds with the .22 I had to buy this wierd scope mount that moved it to the left side of the gun off of the barrel because the scope has been shimmed so much that the barrel get's in the way :cry: Barrel rifling is still good, no copper fouling, no lead fouling, shiny and new. If not for the new wobble the thing was a tack driver. I think the wobble developed last week after a bad pot hole on sherman way in the trunk. The kink I don't know when that happened but it didn't affect anything, and the trigger housing broke when I took the gun apart to find out why the wobble. Thankfully I have a 30-06 now. I can now fix everything on the .22 and return the scope to it's proper mount and give it a 100yrd zero Anyone know of a good Gunsmith in the LA area?
