the basic feature of the bolt release is so when your magaizne empties and you put another magazine in all you have to do is hit the bolt release and it will put a round in the chamber without you having to pull back on the charging handle.

If you mean the bolt release, it's on the bottom left side of the receiver, away from the bolt handle. From the rear, insert a small screw driver, or other suitable device, and press down on the release while extracting the bolt. The bolt just slides in to reinstall (it presses the release for you).

Is there a bolt release for the Model 60 22LR?

Raise the bolt to the unlocked position, then pull the trigger while removing the bolt. That makes no sense. The Model 60 is a semiautomatic firearm, not a bolt-action. The old style Model 60 used the operating handle as a bolt hold-open. Pull the bolt about 3/4 way to the rear and push in on the bolt handle to lock it open. Pull the bolt handle back out and the bolt will be released to run forward. Newer Model 60's have a bolt release lever that extends down through the trigger guard.
