Having one of those days!!!



Log in to see fewer ads
It started with having to repaint the stock of the 81DL, which had too much repair on it to give it a natural finish, the first color turned out something like Ford tractor blue so I go to an other color , but it never comes out right , maybe I have contanimated the stock someway???? So I deceide to sand it , reprime it and repaint..again....so while I was at it ,I deceided to run some Kroil down the barrel ( I managed to find some from a friend who had a gallon of the stuff )but I can't remove the bolt, I had to remove the trigger and sear to do so.....What is the problem??? any ideas??? I had taking it apart before to clean and redo the metal , normally I pull back the trigger and pull out the bolt but not this time!!!

i'm not real sure what's up with the bolt not coming out of your gun, but i paint cars for a living and i'll tell you that the colors rarely come out like they are supposed to so i understand your frustrations, i hope it works out for you and you gt what your after.

Hi Bob
Usually you have to have the safety in either the fire or safe position to remove the bolt. Off hand I can't remember which and don't have a Marlin bolt gun nearby to check. With the Remmies it's both. One way out and the other way in. Give it a try. Oh would like to see the stock in her new color (I presuming that it is a kind of orchid). That is my wife's favorite color. I use it with gifts to get me out of the dog house

Well I finally got the stock painted, with no major problems..this time , as mentioned it reminded me of my dad's 69 T-Bird color( midnight orchid) it's a burgundy..sort of..!!! I took some pics but it's hard to describe depending how the light hits it. I know one thing, it's nicer then Ford tractor blue
The 81 is nearly finished , I'm waiting for the TG to arrive , I also found a butt plate ( not Marlin) but it doesn't really fit right ..so I'm working on a aluminium plate...which has it's own challenges
