Hello all.

I tried to shoot my father's (originally purchased new by my grandmother) and it would not feed or shoot. It took about 1.5 seconds to determine crud was at fault.

The rifle barrel says "Marlin Model 99," so I assume it is a late 50's early 60's model. I am very sure this is the first time it has been broken down and thoroughly cleaned.

I have the rifle completely torn down to individual parts. It is all clean as a whistle but nothing more.

My question, while this rifle is in pieces, what parts should I replace if any? Springs, pins, firing pin? Where is a good/inexpensive source for parts?

What parts, if any, should I polish for smoother operation?

Any advice and inspiration is greatly appreciated!

Yep, if you have older Model 60's always keep at least one or two feed throats on hand, on second thought, keep a spare for the new 60's to.
