    I'm glad I'm helping out and passing on some of the things I've learned to do since getting the Marlinitus Virus.

    Swany, thanks for MO good info! I've enjoyed using your excellent tutorials to detail strip my 1894...getting everything good and clean, but I'm the 3rd owner, and it appears the first one lost the roll pin holding the extractor in...and replaced it with some evil bit of steel. To further bedevil me it is lightly staked in and had begun to rust at some point in the past. I've had it soaking for 4 days, warmed it under a heat lamp, clamped it down and it will not budge. I used firm controlled taps until, at last, I bent a new Stanley 1/16" pin punch! Unless you have some special machinist phrases I haven't used on it, am I gonna have to drill that sucker out? It's personal now. thanks, RB

    Swany.
    Thinks on the trigger job. Wish I had seen it before I had my 39D trigger worked on. Same smith got my 39A down to 2 lbs a few years ago. last time on the 39D he said it was 2.5 lbs. Closer to 4 lbs by my RCBS fish scale. Just finished it myself and it's 40 or 42 oz. Thanks for sharing it. Bob

    Swany,
    I was not sure what you meant by" tilt stone slightly so I placedthe Sear in small vice. Rotated the Sear to get the included angle was .005 higherthan the other end. Then
    place parallels on either side of the Sear so I could stone down to the parallels.I could believe the difference in how much the trigger pull was reduced.
    Thanks for your Time and Help.

    Ah a learned Grasshopper. You have the knowledge and the tools that helps a lot. Me being a tool and die maker it came fairly easy, I wrote that up for the the masses without the Journeymans background. Many of my write ups I could do with precision tools and setups, I have in my shop but then not all Marlin Owners members have that.

    I have the two piece triggers, so it was difficult to hold that tiny upper part of the trigger at the same angle. I picked up a 1983 336 three days ago and decided to do a trigger job. I held the face of the sear against a straight edge and clamped it into a vice grip at a slight angle. Then I held the vice grip parallel to the stone and took a few strokes and checked the face and took two more strokes. And that did it. A nice flat surface. Put the gun back together and now the trigger breaks at 3.3 lbs.

    Swany,
    Thanks for your insight on the Marlin triggers. I took your advice and worked on the spring and really looked at the trigger and hammer closely. I thought the trigger and hammer were very smooth and did not need attention at this time. After the spring bend it is a very nice trigger on my .357 model 1984. It is a 1979. Thanks again, you guys make this Marlin thing a lot of fun.

    Hi Swany, thanks form some great info. I have a 1949 336A 30-30 and the trigger is great for a hunting rifle. Last week I picked up a 1974 336c in 35 rem. trigger was I little heavy. So before getting a happy trigger I decided to bend the spring a little. Now the trigger is better but know it has a lot of side to side play. Like it lose. I don't have a weight gauge but could I have bent it to much ?
