06 disassembled left.JPG
Disassembled for cleaning viewed from the left. Though it's obvious that the rifle has not fired many rounds it was inoperable when I bought it because it was so dirty inside. It's like a brand new rifle now.
Close up of internal components. Note the action assembly side plates. They appear to be modified model 60 side plates cut, drilled and recessed to fit the model 40's trigger guard. Note also the finish of the bolt. More on that later.
EDIT: Right in the middle of this picture you can see the two trigger guard screws that hold the entire action in the receiver. The long screw goes in back. If you swap them, and put the long screw in front, then it will cause the action to bind. Thanks to fellow forum member Nervousmini for kindly providing this information.
08 internal wear.JPG
A closeup of the stamped scroll work. That little chip in the finish is the worst thing wrong with this gun. Looking through the ejection port you can see how little wear there is inside the receiver.
09 internal wear 2.JPG
Viewed from the bottom very little sign of wear can be found. If you've spent any time at all cleaning the Marlin model 60, 70, etc... this should look very familiar to you.

Top of the receiver. Again, very similar to to the models 60, 70, etc.
