    New member, new 60. Action screw issue

    My new Marlin 60's action screws do not have slots for a flathead screwdriver. Don't look like hex, what do I need to unscrew? Thanks

    got it figured out. Takes a 3.5 hex drive. Is this normal?

    Yep, That was a surprise to me too! Luckily I full sets of hex drivers. And mine is a Mayfield KY from about 2014. Just in case you haven't looked yet, Arrowdodger has videos of dis-assembly and mods on YouTube - just search his logon for them. I have a few bits in threads here, too. As do many others . . . Lots of info on these guns.

    Thanks for input.... next question. Is the top rail the std 3/8 or 11mm. Mine sure looks like 11mm.

    Someone will come along soon with an exact answer but I’ve noticed that new Marlin 60’s have a different type of main screw, I assumed it was a hex. I would only know to try my bits and see which one fits.

    To remove stock, you also have to remove the rear trigger guard screw.

    The top rail is 3/8”.

    I re-torque stock after disassembly as follows: main screw around 18-20 inch pounds and rear trigger guard screw around 10-12 inch pounds.
