    336 Magazine Tube Question

    Are there any tricks to removing the magazine plug? After I remove the screw, it seems the magazine plug is frozen in place. Afraid to try anything drastic for foricble. This is the case on several of my 336s. Any suggetions?

    Try soaking it with penetrating oil for a while. It should come out.

    If I understand you correctly................

    I think you'll need to remove the fore end cap, and forearm...........then, with the screw removed from the Mag Plug, capture the front of the plug with your thumb and pull the front of the tub away from the Barrel ( the plug sits on a stud).........DON'T let the plug launch across the room, or hit you in the eye............It's under pressure from the Mag Spring..

    the magazine cap is retained by an extension of the dovetail stud into which the screw is threaded.
    the forearm may not have a big enough hole to allow the tube to be deflected adequately to pull the cap ( and tube ) clear of that extension.

    If required, this is a video about disassembly:



    It is just one of many. There is lots of information on this site and on the Web. Maybe, you can find something that might help, if this does not.

    Basics first:
    Does your rifle have barrel bands? Or a tip-cap style fore-end?
    Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your rusted masses yearning to live again,
    The wretched refuse of your humid closet.
    Send me the partless, broken-stocked,
    The Marlins in need of new life...

    using a bootleg screwdriver and scratching his gun makes that video tough to watch.

    Sorry. You are more than welcome to present a better one.
