Question about .357 Marlin 1894C
I have a new 1894C, I was cleaning it, following the directions on how to remove the follower. Mine will not come out unless I remove the screw from the barrel band. The manual makes no mention of this, just says take out the plug screw, lower muzzle and rotate, it will fall out. Mine will not move, finally took out screw for barrel band and it fell out. To re-install I had to repeat. The follower actually hangs on the screw. It is orange plastic, and had a chip on the edge, which is why I wanted to remove it. I purchased a stainless one from an online vendor. All is well, I love my rifle, just want to know if this is normal, or is there a skipped step in the manual.
