    Need complete disassembly diagram and directions for Marlin 336A - Circa 1950

    First, let me say that I know nothing, absolutely nothing, about Marlin lever actions. A friend gave me a 1950 built 336A in 35 Rem that he can't cycle through a motion without it getting stuck with lever halfway through its range of motion. There is something missing from the action and I'm taking a guess it's where the safety should be. There is just a hole in the receiver (looking at the right side of the rifle, it is the uppermost hole before the stock.) If you look in the hole, there seems to be something misaligned with the parts. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Should be a good learning experience!

    There were no safties in 1950. I think your talking about the extractor not being in the proper position. There are far more knowledgable people on this site than myself. If you look in the gunsmithing forum you will see how to take the lever out and pull the bolt out of the gun and the extractor is right in front of you. This may be the whole problem. But don't tell your friend because he might want the gun back. Good luck

    Welcome to MO.

    As said, there is no safety on that model so if you have a hole in the uppermost right, that would be the carrier screw and that would definitely cause a problem.

    Thanks for the info! I've disassembled it and I definitely need the carrier screw. Is there a readily available source for this part and other than aligning the parts in the receiver and inserting the screw, is there anything else that needs done? Thanks again and you have a very good forum here. Keep up the good work!

    Check out Numrich Gun Parts. http://www.gunpartscorp.com It looks like the carrier screw costs $3.50 plus shipping. Congrats on your $3.50 rifle , Lonnie.

    As Lonnie said, Gunparts is one source, Brownell's and MidwyaUSA are other popular options.

    I'd start by getting the screw and then give everything a good cleaning while it is apart, put back together and see where you're at.
