I have a JM Marlin 336C 30-30. I ordered a spare finger lever assembly for it, but the lever I received is a bit different than the original lever. Actually, I ordered levers from Brownells, MidwayUSA, and Numerich thinking that I was receiving wrong levers, but the levers from all 3 places are all the same, so I don't know. Here is a picture comparing them, the original factory lever is on the left. The new levers (type on the right) all move the bolt back and forth and work the carrier, but none of them will fully close. Can anyone explain the difference in levers? Thanks, Figsy.
By error, I also posted this in post 11, please excuse that, I just learned how to use photobucket, I never needed to in any other forums before. Please dismiss all the following posts about me having trouble posting pics.

Open a account with Photobucket (it's free) and link your pictures through them. Hope this helps...

If you come to take my guns, you better bring your own...
I attach pictures by going to reply and then click "Go Advanced." Then scroll down to "attachments" and add the picture directly from my computer.
I just tried uploading from photobucket as well and when I do, it still tells me the same as when i try to upload a pic from my computer: "You do not have permission to perform this action." It looks like I am out of luck. If anyone thinks they can help, please PM me so that I can email you the pic. Thanks and have a great holiday weekend, Figsy.
I have to burn a cd then upload fom that
Do they have the pad on top and the other is fully rounded? Is the lever bare? Does it have the locking plunger?

I'm sorry, I'm not sure what you mean by "pad", but both have the locking plunger. Damn, I wish I could post a pic.
You don't have to upload the picture, just copy and paste the code that has [URL ] and[/URL ], but without the spaces.

Currently no Marlins, but a Ruger Gunsite Scout is there in spirit. An 1894 or 1895 in 45/70 or .45 Colt will find a home here someday.
I'm not sure why you're having a problem. You may want to go through the FAQ's here Reading and Posting Messages and see if you are following all of the procedures. I know that some sites require a minimum number of posts but I don't find that requirement anywhere here on MO. Hope that you get it worked out.

Sometimes you have to resize pix to get them to post.
