    Great work.
    Just got a 1894CB 44mag 20inch, first Marlin. Should be picking it up from my dealer next week. If the trigger needs work might try your wedge plate idea.
    Thanks for posting with pictures.

    Sorry for the late reply, I've been busy with a flu-ridden oneyearold...
    Anyway, thanks for that, and by all means use the plate, that's why I posted the pictures.

    As to your rifle--looks great, just like my 1895 CB. Guess it's what you like but I have both a 1894C and one in .45. The .38 Sp one has a band the other doesn't. Like the looks of both.

    I'm not an authority on these things, but I know what I like. I think you've done an awesome job and I wouldn't add or change a thing. You must be a master with a hacksaw and a file!

    Yeah, the WWG trigger is of course the easier way to go, but there is no way Iīm paying that money for it. Itīs all good for you guys, who can get it shipped for a reasonable price, but to buy one here in Sweden costs a third of what I payed for the rifle..
    Oh, and by the way, first thing I did to the 444 on friday when I got it home, was to put in my little plate-mod.
    Works like a charm! Itīs a joy to shoot these, I love them...

    Well MrChily this is exactly why I posted this question on this forum. A lot more people visit this forum. You obviously are a lot more talented than I in machine work and the like. You so aptly proved that " necssity is the mother of invention. " And I have no doubt there will one or two different fixes to this ( in my case more simple, your solution might be a tad beyond my comfort level. ) I would have thought of the addition of a simple very light spring might do the same thing although I REALLY am interesed in the apparent crispness you now enjoy. And since I haven't taken the trigger assemply apart yet I don't know if the sring idea would even work..

    New take on removal of the "Trigger flop"

    Well, ngzcaz, first off thanks for the kind words! Second, it's a really easy job to do once you get the trigger group apart, and can see how it works. Third, the spring idea was my own first thought as well, but there just is not room in there for a spring. Once you get the parts out, you'll know
