  1. Remington Quality Improvement

    General Gun Related Off Topic Stuff
    Bought a Remington 870 today, and I think the quality got a lot better than it has been. I checked out a synthetic and a wood one, ended up with the wood one, and I'm happy with it. I put about 50 shells through it and the only slight issue is the ejection is a little weak...I stovepiped once...
  2. Quality Years

    General Gun Related Off Topic Stuff
    I've always wanted a Remington 870 but there's no secret the quality is gone. I held a few in the shop and the stocks were ill-fitted to the receivers, and they just simply feel ugly. I still like the 870 over other models, and they used to be good years ago. That being said, what year did the...
  3. Mossberg 500 or Remington 870?

    New to owning guns, thought I'd seek advice from more seasoned shooters... Remington 870 or Mossberg 500? Definitely know that I want a 12ga pump but which would you recommend and why? I'm partial to the 870 because I've used it before and I know it's a comfortable gun, it's been trusted by...

    Turkey Hunters Roost
    This unseasonably warm weather in PA has got my spring turkey strings plucking pretty hard. Whipped out the calls and have been giving it a go. I've been using pretty standard 5 shot 3" turkey loads for years. Last spring I nailed a big tom at 50 yards and last fall I hit one at around 40. The...
  5. Marlin .410 Shotgun - 444 Full Length Mag Tube Kit - M-LOK Panels

    Ranger Point Precision
    We’re pleased to reintroduce the Marlin 336 Lever-Action .410 Shotgun, with our own twist. In 2004, Marlin reintroduced a lever-action .410 briefly as homage to the original Model .410 built in 1929 and it was based on the more modern 1895 frame (Fun Fact: These were made in limited edition to...
  6. Marlin 410 Lever Guns - What do use yours for?

    Since I traded an 1894P for mine several years ago I have hunted rabbit, squirrel, quail and dove. I've also shot trap with it surprising many competitors on how well a 410 can do (they didn't think I could shoot doubles with a lever action). I would be the first to agree that you have to be...

  8. Marlin model 44 20 gauge hammerless pump disassembled and can't get it back together.

    I was recently given a model 44 20 gauge hammer less shotgun. It was packed with grease and in an attempt to clean it it was taken apart and now I can't get it back together. I can get it close but will not function and plate on side does not seat all the way down on front. Help I have been...

    Have any of y'all seen any. I know of three. The berretta 412/413, khan k-100, and the h&r folder. I want a light shotgun for backpacking or camping. Which of the three are is the best. If I get one, I will have a smith cut the barrel, and I may get a few chamber adapters
  12. Marlin 410 XLR Stainless Hammer Extension

    Does anyone know where I might be able to find a stainless hammer extension (or spur??) for the Marlin 410 XLR stainless shotgun? I can find the blued version, but have not been able to find the stainless. I have seen photos of them so I know they exist. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, BT
  13. Marlin Model 120 mag pump shotgun

    I have a great deal pending on a solid model 120, but while test firing it the trigger stopped resetting. Now I'm not sure if the great deal would still be a great deal if I end up having to replace the trigger assy or even just having a good gunsmith work on it. I read that it may be the reset...
  14. Model 55 Hunter

    I have a Marlin Model 90 double trigger and need a safety button rod. Schematic part number 99-33. It is the same as a Ranger Model 103. and are out of stock. If I knew the demensions I could rebuild one out of sheet metal. Can anyone out there make a wax casting or...
  18. Marlin 120 questions and answers to problems thread

    I have a Marlin 120 I just acquired. It had a Full choke barrel. I acquired a modified choke barrel. I was at the range shooting trap today, and there were occurrences of the shotgun failing to fire. The trigger would not depress. Unchambering the round and rechambering the round seemed to...
