I recently purchased a 25N with a 4x Bushnell scope as a plinker for the wife. It takes considerable force to open or close the bolt, I've tried every kind of grease and light oil, have not yet tried to polish any of the surfaces. There are no obvious burrs. Is this possibly just a matter of wearing in ?
Secondly the trigger pull is rough and quite heavy, it would be more fun to shoot if I could lighten it and smooth it out.
Any suggestions other than a complete overhaul by a gunsmith ?
Thanks for listening,
Dogpatch

Go to Rimfire Central they have stickies addressing the Marlin trigger. The cure on the Marlin page in Rimfire Central are effective.
