    Marlin Papoose barrel wrench

    Does the factory still sell the barrel wrench for the Marlin Papoose? I picked one up used and there isn't a wrench with it.

    Wrench Gee, I always thought that was a hand-tighten proposition, kinda like my AR-7.

    You can get away without the wrench but it is easier with one.

    They are only $7.70

    It is introspective, and I want to introspect.

    I heat-fitted a 5" piece of PVC over the barrel nut on my Papoose and just give it a good hand-twist to tighten it. I haven't used the barrel wrence since then and the nut seems to stay snug. I do check it every few magazines while shooting.

    My problem is getting the barrel off after shooting. The nut loosens up no problem, but the barrel to receiver is a really close fit, and after the barrel heats up it can be tough getting it apart.

    I've never unwrapped the barrel wrench since I bought my Papoose, as I see no need for it. My rifle shoots just fine after hand tightening the barrel.

    I'm with you on that, but I've also come to realize that there are a fair amount of folks with missing fingers/low hand strength...
    we got a lot of Vets out there, and they need the proper tools to get things done

    Plus, some of those rusty old Papoose's haven't been cleaned since they were originally bought...and it takes a wrench to remove the barrel the first time

    Most of us Marlinites would never let a Papoose get nasty, or fail to clean a rifle before selling it,
    but there are a buncha scumbags out there who will...and that's where we get great deals at pawn shops/yard sales/gun shows
    Which means we get to do the cleanup...but end up with a great rifle afterwards!!
