    Re: A different way to fix the Marlin Jam

    As ususal, I am johnny come lately on this thread. But the Marlin jam is near and not so dear to my heart.
    I have an 1894 I use for cowboy action. I love that rifle. But last year at a one of my biggest matches it happened.
    I did not think it would because I only shoot four or five matches a year.

    Long story short, I replaced the carrier and filed off the notch on the lever to fix it. If you suspect that you may be headed for a problem, take a look at the carrier to see if there is a small line etched in the soft metal from the lever. It the notch is there, you are ready for the jam. It does not take much of a notch to cause the problem.

    I certainly am no gunsmith and I never even played one on TV, but I think Marlin could fix a lot of the problem
    by simply removing the burr on the lever before assembly. That and a little grease could sure stop a lot of wear on the carrier.

    By the way, excellent post and great pictures. Both ways will fix the problem.

    Another update, 08-16-11:

    Another several thousand more rounds through the rifle, and it's as slick as ever, no hiccups, no issues, no wear on the jigsaw blade. I'm firmly convinced this is the BEST way to fix the Marlin Jam.
