Was happy to find a New Marlin 1895G at a local gun store, not a Remlin. Had been at the store since 2009 and had JM stamped on barrel. Looks and feels great, but when I tried to cycle a few rounds through, discovered significant difficulty chambering rounds. Bullet tips seemed to enter chamber properly, but the base was not lifted high enough to allow round to enter chamber fully :'(. When there were rounds in the magazine I could manipulate the lever to finally get rounds chambered, but almost impossible to do if no other rounds in magazine tube. At times it seemed that the bases were getting stopped by the ejector, not allowing them to lift high enough to be chambered, The gun smith is out of town this month, any suggestions???
