    Taking Apart a Marlin 336 For Cleaning

    Can someone with a modest amount of mechanical ability and a set of Gunsmith Screwdrivers & Puches take apart a Marlin 336 (.35 Remington 1950, 336A model) to clean it properly?

    Is there any sticky on this site about doing this?

    If not what would be the 1st step, 2nd, 3rd.

    Anything to watch out for? Any traps?

    Thanks

    Yes, and yes.

    Reference Library, Gunsmithing, How To Disassemble & Clean. This thread is a good one:

    Generally you can find whatever you need on this site by doing a search. That's what the search feature is for.

    Good luck, if I can do it (and I can), so can you!

    For proper cleaning, all you need is one flat blade screwdriver properly sized to remove the lever screw. Or, you can buy a replacement screw with a knurled head that eliminates the need for a screwdriver - just use your fingers. For total disassembly, you may need one or two more screwdrivers, but only because I strive for the perfect fit every time I turn a screw. Buggered screws are just so unattractive, and amateurish-looking to boot.
