I have the Wards version of a Marlin .22 rifle that needs a bolt group, trigger group and barrel band. Wards sold it as a Westpoint model 45. It looks like a shorter version of the Marlin model 60, but with a 9-shot tubular magazine. Some of the Marlins had a handguard like an M-1 carbine. Any help is appreciated.

I know a guy who just picked up a cheap Model 60. I think he got it to fix another one. I'll check with him and see if he is indeed going to part it out and get back to you.

AKfan, wanted to get back to you. I guess the Marlin that guy picked up was complete enough that he fixed it instead so I came up empty, sorry couldn't be of better help. Good luck in your search.

For what the parts you need will cost you + the trouble finding them it would be easier to just buy a new model 60 unless the one your fixing has sentimental value.Also the model you have is notorious for having a slew of feeding problems unlike a plain model 60 why I don't know though.

Belonged to Dad. He's gone a little over a year now. It was his favorite, not for reliability, but for accuracy. He made some great shots with it. I'll keep trying to get it running again for sentimental value.

The Marlin/Glenfield equivilant model # is 75C
It will work out to be the cheapest to buy a complete carbine and cannibalize it to restore the one you have.
I am particularly familiar with that model because it was the first gun I owned. Bought it new 35 years ago this Thanksgiving Friday for the sum of $25 and it included a Glenfield branded scope.
Watch out because there are two generations of these, Numrich's catalog shows this and details the difference.
There is also a 75C that has the mag tube that extends about to the muzzle. I had the nine round version like yours.
I foolishly included mine in a trade for something else I just had to have. I keep watching for another to replace it now that I am old LOL.
Good luck with your quest. This is one of the best Trader boards on the internet, also watch gunshows, online auction sites, and there is also a board called 'Rimfire Central' that you might watch. HTH
