marlin 1895 bolt lockup

  1. The 45/70 Govt.
    Have a new 1895 ABL that I tuned the action on... I noticed afterwords that there is a bit of "slop" in the bolt lockup... that is after I cycle the lever with the bolt apparently back in battery and the hammer back... I can still push the bolt forward about 1/16". I had not noticed this before...
