Model 99 m1. Bolt issue



Log in to see fewer ads
My old 99 is having action issues. It won’t stay open and the last shell from the tube always gets caught upon ejection. Assuming it’s because the action doesn’t stay open.
Which part needs to be replaced?

Thanks!

First, to RFC!
I don't think the 99 has the last shot hold open feature (LSHO). IIRC you should have to pull the bolt open and push in on the charge handle. As for the last round not ejecting, I'm not sure. But I am sure that someone wiser than me will be along to help you out.

Welcome Dockingbay. Agreed with Tsb3 and in addition (assuming the action and chamber are clean and lubricated) I'd try some stronger ammo like Mini-Mags.

No last shot hold open and depending on age of the rifle you may or may not be able to to push in on the charging handle when all the way to the rear and it will hold it open. As for the ejection problem maybe the shells are sticking in the chamber more as it warms up.

Yup If it's old enough not to have the push in bolt handle it has the old feed throat unless it was fixed on the recall. But it sounds like thats the problem. I have a Glenfield 75 with the old throat that started to jam up. I took a small file and squared up the ejector edge and it's been fine since with probably 500 rounds through it. Eventually I'll replace it. But I recently piced up a 1975 M75 with the new throat/ejector wire that may get the most trigger time.

I'm curious. What besides putting in the new feed throat did he do to get it so snotty? Did you just send the lower part of the receiver control group?

It ejects perfectly except for the last casing.
The rifle is at least 50 years old.
The action handle does not push in at the back of the pull.
Does that help confirm anything?

Thanks everyone.

The early ones didn't just didn,t have the hold open feature yet. That was added early 70s. If it's only the last round thats odd. The egector edge may be starting to go When another round is getting lifted that takes up space in the action. So your empty may be getting help kicked out of the port and not jamming yet. Do the cases get flung out pretty far or are they kind of dribbling out a couple inches? Other guess is your follower in the tube ok? Not bent or distorted where it may be sticking up to far interfering with the last case?

Maybe that is my problem. How old is old enough? I have a barrel code that shows "LK".

December 1967

found on the internet:
rom 1962 thru 1968 Marlins rimfire rifles (other than the 39 series lever actions) used a two letter date code that was stamped on the barrel. This date code is different than the one already listed, as Marlin rimfire rifles (other than the model 39 series) did not have a serial numbers until required to by Law after 1968. The first letter of the date code represented the month of manufacture while the second letter indicated the year. This date code was usually stamped on the left side of the barrel just in front of the receiver. The first letter of the date code is as follows:

A = Jan.
B = Feb.
C = Mar.
D = Apr.
E = May
F = June
G = July
H = Aug.
I = Sep.
J = Oct.
K = Nov.
L = Dec.

The second letter of the date code is as follows:

F = 1962
G = 1963
H = 1964
I = 1965
J = 1966
K = 1967
L = 1968

So I guess I can stop trying to push in the bolt handle on my '67 vintage rifle. And here all these years I just thought it was defective
