I would like improve the trigger in my Marlin and i went to recommended link by Jonah and in the section on working the sear, he recommends a Marvel 1911 Sear/Hammer jig. I have done several 1911 trigger jobs with my Ed Brown jig and I'm wondering if anyone here on the forum has used the Ed Brown jig for their Marlin sear?

Jertex, I was the one who originally wrote the article on using the Marvel jig to clean up the Marlin sear because that was what I had at the time. I am currently using the Power Custom Series I stoning fixture with the Marlin 336 adapter. It's easier to use than the Marvel jig, and allows me to easily adjust the angle of the sear. To answer your question I have not used the Ed Brown jig.

I forgot I had asked this question, I appreciate the response. My trigger definitely could be better on my 1894 and I'll probably just buy a kit to improve it. They're fairly inexpensive and safer than trying to make my 1911 jig work on a Marlin rifle. I don't like touching the sear without the correct tool.

Jertex, what is the correct sear profile from your testing? Do you use a secondary angle on the sear as we do for 1911 sears? I am getting ready to do a trigger job on my new 94c. The sear surface looks like it was gnawed off by a beaver.

When I did the trigger on my 336 I looked at my Ed Brown 1911 jig and figured I couldn't make it work. I made a jig using a small hobby vise. There are some good threads about doing your own trigger in the gunsmithing section. Hope this helps.

I never used the jig & just had my gunsmith do the work. I traded a Lowrance fishfinder for $500 in gunsmithing work, so it was a win/win. :)
