    Feeding problem on Marlin 1892 22 cal - Thoughts?

    I’ve a marlin 1892 22 cal that binds up when cycling rounds. The binding is occurring on the outer rim edge of the rim fire shell casings. I can confirm this because every shell that cycles through this gun ends up with a very small burr that can be seen and felt on the edge of the brass casing. The rifle otherwise shoots fine. In examining the carrier spring I found that it has a sharp corner on the protruding end of it. Does anyone have experience or insight as to what the likely problem is?

    BTW - The only way I can get the gun to operate is to hold it upside down with the barrel pointed up to let gravity feed it. Even then I still get several shells that stick in the receiver and wont feed up to the barrel. It does not seem ammo related. I've tried 22 shorts and it makes the problem worse.

    Thanks.

    Either replace the spring or take a file (small) gently to the burr. However on the failure to feed it sounds like the carrier spring is worn out and or the magazine spring / follower(?) as well. Any thing in side of the magazine tube ? When is the last time it's been cleaned etc.

    That's what I'm thinking too. I did take a stone to the carrier spring, but think I'll replace it. As for the mag tube I did clean it but I'm suspicious that the spring is bad. I removed the tube from the gun but did not disassemble the tube set. The reason I feel the the spring is bad is that while examining this mag tube I can't find any indication that a spring is providing any tension at all; regradless of the tube set being collapsed or extended. Thanks for the reply.
