I noticed that the sear on the trigger was really wide, creating a lot of creep... so I took a file wrapped in emery paper (sand paper) and shortened it up a bit.

After profiling, lubing it up with some moly 60 and adding the Bic lighter spring to the trigger... while keeping the factory sear spring... it now breaks at 24 ounces (1-1/2 lbs) with zero creep.

Mission accomplished with the trigger. Now, as long as it feeds .22LR reliably without the cartridge guide spring, and we will be in business!

Well, mission NOT accomplished. The front of the cartridge pops up too high without the guide spring, and you have to hold it down with your finger to get it to feed into the barrel.

I had to hit the barrel pin pretty HARD to get it to come loose... but haven't tried to remove the barrel yet. (had to go to my son's youth baseball game) But it seems the guide spring IS NEEDED... at least on my gun.

sounds like a magazine or magazine receiver latch problem - either one could have caused the spring to break originally -

That's what mine is doing.

$50 to hear the gunsmith say he couldn't separate the barrel from the action. "The two are as one", he said.

Second gunsmith didn't want to touch it.

THIRD gunsmith says try sending it back to Marlin...which I may do.

I have an option to let someone else try to fix it, but at this point he may be my LAST option if Marlin doesn't want to make an attempt.

Anyone here on the Forum have information, tips or tricks on how to contact/send the gun to Marlin? to help save time?


Good luck, OP.
Good luck to us both!

These folks are in Portland Ore. They've been around forever. I just used them for a warranty service on a marlin 22lr.

I appreciate the link, thank you.

I have faith this shop will be able to make my Dad's rifle fully functional again.
