Trying to clean a new 1895 sbl. I have removed the magazine tube plug screw but can not get the plug out. Not even enough of a gap to insert a knife blade and I am paranoid about gouging the tube or plug. Anybody have any tricks for getting this out.

Thanks,

Padraig

Got it. The booklet neglects that part. More QA problems for Marlin. LOL, better the manual then the rifle!

Got everything else clean and lubed, all looks good. So far I am pleased with the quality. Wood to metal fit is very good with minimal and consistent gap. Action seems good, trigger has a nice break but to me a tad heavy. May have to do something about that No scratches and finish is good although too bright for my taste. I have a friend and fellow shooter with a machine shop and sand blast set up. I may have him glass bead (blast) it and have a nice satin finish. If it functions and shoots as well as it looks....I will be a happy camper.

Will get some pics posted tomorrow.

Thanks all!

If you bead blast it find someone that does KG GunKote. It's a spray on bake dry system that was designed for the US Navy seals. They have all their gear coated with it. My friend did mine after I got on my 1895 knocking down burs and sharp edges. I love it. https://www.kgcoatings.com/gun-kote-finish
