Hammer offset for Marlins older than 1957? Does anyone know of an offset commercially available for the older guns? Don't say Micheals as I have already talked with them and they only go back to '57. They base their '57 to '82 offset on a .300 opening and a T cross section. Hammers measure a nominal .282 and up. My older gun measures .262 with a rectangular cross section. Plus it tapers. They tried to see if anything else would fit and didn't come up with one. Appreciate the help, Rick

For my '53 336SC, I took a '57 to '82 Uncle Mike's hammer extension, and had my gunsmith drill and tap, and add a set screw, on the other side that slips onto the hammer. Now It has two set screws, one on either side of the hammer. Works slick, no movement.

Have you checked out the hammer extension from Rossi ? As I recall the part that goes onto the hammer is a box section and doesn't tighten on the same way as the Marlin/NEF does..
See <www.rossiusa.com> they are $6.50...

Hi Guy`s,

I found a hammar spur for a 1894 pre-64 will work for the older Marlins.I had to install it upside down and it works just fine.
