    Need Marlin 881/781 part....can't find anywhere

    I need the cartridge carrier base for a Marlin 781/881 and can't find one for sale anywhere. Any ideas on where I might find one? I've checked the usual places: Midwayusa, Numerich, Brownells.

    It's part 11 on this schematic:
    http://www.gunpartscorp.com/catalog/...spx?catid=4095

    I bought the rifle off Gunbroker last week, picked it up today, and it wouldn't feed cartridges. Tore it apart and found the carrier base broke in half. I got it halfway fixed with a washer to where it will feed cartridges, but I'd like to get it fixed the right way. Besides the broken part, it's a nice rifle. The stock has some pretty nice wood with some interesting figuring. I'll post some pics later. Thanks for the help.

    Storm,
    Where did you order it from? I'm sure the other MO's would like to know which site let you score.

    Also Janott, any time I could help an NRA Life member, glad to do so.

    John
