    Jams in 1895M

    I have a Marlin 1895M in .450 Marlin (serial number 95008265) and was shooting Hornady 325 gn Leverevolution ammo and every shot but one resulted in a jam in my gun so bad that i either had to take the magazine tube off, or wedge the stuck round out with a screwdriver. It did not fully transfer from magazine tube into lifting mechanism to be chambered and could not be pushed back in the tube or pulled out into the action. I have never had this happen before shooting other ammunition, including reloads. Any suggestions on what may have caused this?

    You prob need the new style magazine follower that has the dimple in it to allow Leverevolution to feed properly. Many aftermarket ones available, I think Marlin will ship you one for free if you call them.

    It's a 2005 rifle... It should already have the dimpled follower... But one quick way to be sure is to load a flat point first then a Hornady round and see if it feeds right...

    Don't forget the loading gate screw has to be tight.

    Wasn't sure what year Marlin started using the new style follower.

    Looks like these were made 2000-2009 so that indeed moves suspicion to the loading gate screw.

    Found this thread where the guy could shoot the standard Hornady 450 ammo but not the Leverevolution.

    https://www.24hourcampfire.com/ubbth...de-gun-jamming

    He had Marlin ship a new follower but he never reported back to the forum.
