  1. 336 30-30 cartridges stuck on carrier

    I just bought a nice looking 336C in 30-30 used with Skinner rear sight installed (SN of the rifle indicates a 2018 manufacture date). I have not gotten a chance to shoot it yet but I have been trying to cycle it with 4 "A-Zoom 30-30 snap caps" unsuccessfully. My problem appears to be that...
  2. M/94 Extractor Claw (2017 Design)

    Ranger Point Precision
    Getting to the Extraction Point... Any operator will tell you that it's foolish to embark on a mission without a good plan for extraction once the objective has been accomplished. Similarly, it's foolish to design a firearm without serious consideration for the extractor, whose primary job is...
  3. Carrier jamming against mag. tube follower

    The 45/70 Govt.
    I just purchased a new 1895GBL. The stock fit exceeded my expectations and the action is really smooth except for one problem. Every few times the action is cycled the carrier jams against the plastic magazine tube follower. It looks like the follower is extending into the receiver a little bit...
  4. Marlin jam fix

    Australian and New Zealand Marlin Owner's
    Hi, my Marlin 30-30 lever has the dreaded jam of 'letting two in'. I have read about the fixes on many other forums but I'm not sure how to go about it personally. My jam is caused by the lever snail cam gouging out a furrow in the receiver metal. The gouge is slightly off camber, that is it is...
  5. model 60 jams when feeding

    I recently got a hold of my dads 1980 marlin model 60. I tore it down to clean and put it back together. My father passed away about 10 years ago and hasn't had a bullet fired through it in at least that long. With .22lr ammo being hard to come by i bought 50 rounds of remington ammo. I put 6...
  6. Let's see if this is a fix for jamming

    Australian and New Zealand Marlin Owner's
    Hi all, I "bit the bullet" (bad pun) and stripped my 336 down and cleaned everything. I followed a great video on youtube Marlin Lever-Action Disassembly and Tuning - Part 1 of 2 - YouTube and disassembled it. I cleaned it all by giving a light smear of oil and deburred edges on the base plate...
  7. New Marlin owner, happy as heck!!

    Welcome New Members
    Hi All, Just bought my first Marlin. I live in Indiana where only pistol cartridges are allowed for Deer, so I picked up a model 1894 in .44 Magnum. I was a little hesitant to buy a new rifle given all the hullabaloo about Remington taking over the company, but being a Remington fan from way...
  8. Marlin 444 Jamming up when chambering a round.

    The 444 Marlin
    Hello This is my first post to the forum, but I have been reading for a long time. I currently own a Marlin 444-s and a Marlin 30a Glenfield in 30-30. My question today is regarding the 444. I have been having a consistent issue when chambering a round. When adding 3 rounds to the magazine, and...
