    Well ... unless I'm mistaken it still may be withing SAAMI spec if it chambers a nogo ... I *think* the acid test for tomato stake is a "Field Gauge".

    Fitting a new locking block can fix headspace issues, by moving the bolt face closer to the breech face. I've done it myself, but on a rifle I intended to keep. The particular rifle in question here, the OP's 336, needs a complete refund and a lawyer placing some calls to Remington Outdoor Group/Marlin Firearms.

    The only other option beyond hiring an attorney$$$$ is contacting your State Attorney General's office. I see you're in California, so I don't know what kind of response you would get from them. Is there a Consumer Protection Agency in your state? CA is a really large state so I would "Assume" they have Agencies for specific responsibilities. Every State Home Page I've seen usually has a list of agencies that deal with specific problems.

    This entire situation should NOT cost you money in order to get a refund.

    Some lamp cord and a lite bulb socket. Seriously you should have a lawyer write them a letter and DO NOT ACCEPT ANOTHER RIFLE FROM THEM. You are very lucky that the loose barrel did not cause you bodily harm or worse. This is serious stuff . You should get a refund and compensation for your trouble and any legal expense. Does your local T.V. station have a help line or a person that helps consumers with defective products? I think that it is your duty to call remlin out on this so everyone will learn how their don't care attitude could have cost you your eyesight or worse.

    For God's sake don't pull the trigger with a live cartridge chambered.

    The bolt should not close on the no-go gauge. This is a potentially dangerous condition.

    A Field gauge is at max (or slightly smaller) specified headspace. It will not show an excessive headspace condition.
