I just acquired an 1893 Marlin in good condition. However, the ejector spring seems short to me. It works but does not eject the cases with much force. I would appreciate comments and information as to where I might get an ejector spring for this 1893...or any other part for that matter.

I too have an 1893 with a broken spring, am searching for parts and have some options but am curious if the ejector will still work if the spring is broken completely. It seems the ejector is curved and although the force of ejection may not shoot the casing across the room, I am not doing anything that would require high speed recocking with the lever, so if it will work, I am probably all good and will just put the old one back. Otherwise, if someone can answer me that it won't work, then I can keep shopping.
Hi everyone... I've had very good luck making new ejector springs by cutting pieces from an old bolt action rifle magazine follower spring with an abrasive wheel then grinding them to final shape with my Dremel...One old spring has supplied pieces to fix quite a few ejectors over the years...good luck!
