hi everyone, i just got a new marlin 336w and have a slight problem, i cant load ammo into the gun because the loading gate wont open. It is because the carrier isn't going down all the way after pushing the bullet into firing position. anybody know how to fix this?? Thanks! :-\

Sorry, I don't know, but I wonder if it might have something to do with the magazine follower. Mine was faulty, and stuck out into the action too far. The carrier would get caught on it. Mine would hang up in trying to get the carrier to go up, but I can imagine maybe yours gets hung up in the opposite direction. Just a guess...the guys who actually know what they're talking about seem to be on lunch break right now, and will no doubt be back soon. (Marlin sent me a new magazine follower, btw, and everything worked great after that.)
