Model 60

Post by CastIronQueen »

I have a 4/5 year old model 60 that was giving me ejection issues. I found that my recoil spring guide is bent. It also seems to be sold out everywhere. Any Chance someone would like to sell an extra they have sitting around? Or know someplace for me to look?

I have been looking around and all I can find are the guides on ebay.
I have been working on straightening the Bent guide today. I cleaned the heck out of it, then threw it into a 475° oven for a total of 25 minutes. I then ran it to the vice and pressed in with a straight edge. A ton better, it will only be temporary until I get a new one.

After a little fire, and a little elbow grease and cleaning, all done!
Got that guide arrow straight!
