    Marlin model 60 last shot bolt hold open.

    Is it ok to store the fire arm with the bolt ooen, or will it eventually compromise the spring?

    Best to store closed.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    I let bolt forward, and then ease bolt back off chamber an eighth of an inch and drop the hammer so the hammer spring doesn't get tired, but also so the chamber doesn't get smooshed by the pin

    Not this one. The tube has been shortened. Now only holds 10.
