I have a Glenfield Model 60 (squirrel stock) serial number 7125xxxx that I bought used sometime around 1974-ish. It's occasionally had a failure to feed as long as I can recall, but last time out to thin out the prairie dog population, it just flat out quit feeding. The round would lodge up and left into the corner, missing the chamber, or catch the nose of the bullet cock-eyed in the chamber, gouging the lead and sticking. I've read up on the dis-assembly and cleaning (done) and referenced the pictures and articles here (good info - thanks to all who posted!).
My action look a bit different than the 3 possible nose feed and action pictures I've read about, and there's no ejector spring.
I'll post a few pics here, and here's my http://s12.photobucket.com/albums/a237/DBAPilotDad/Glenfield%20Model%2060/ photobucket album with the rest. Hopefully someone can educate me.

Thanks!

Thanks, Greenhorn. What about an ejector spring? Does this model or variant not have one? It does eject ok when it works, so I assume the two extractor hooks also function as an ejector. The right extractor is very stiff, while the left is very weak, which I assume causes the extraction when the bolt cycles, releasing the left extractor, causing ejection?

I also read that for serial # starting with 7, a new bolt/kit is required when replacing the nose feed?

Thanks for the info - appreciate it. If the lifter spring is installed incorrectly, it's been that way since before I bought it (might explain the "good deal" I got) ;D If I can get the end of the spring out and along side the lifter, what then gives the lifter upward tension or pressure? With the tail tucked under the lifter, most likely giving it too much upward force, that could explain the FTFeed, I guess - jamming the nose of the round up too far.
