Marlin 20a won't lock up

Log in to see fewer ads
I am looking at a nice 20a for sale, but the action won't lock when in firing position. I am just now discovering these great old guns, so I am not familiar with their insides. Could someone let me know if the parts ( locking bolt?) are available to repair it and their cost (worst case)? I'm trying to get some idea of how much to reduce my offer for the gun. I will also be paying my local smith to install. He's a nice old man and probably wouldn't hurt me too bad. Also I would love a tutorial on how to load the tube, and signs to recognize a defective tube or spring. Thanks a bunch for any assistance.
