In my younger days especially, it brought home a BUNCH of squirrels. But the safety always fired the rifle when it was taken off. I just stopped using it all together. After I got married the BIGGER gun bug bit me. But the little Marlin still holds a special place in my heart.

I may get my head clear from all the prescription meds and tear it down and tinker on it a bit.

Thanks again for the write up and all the clear photos.

I hope you get to feeling good enough to make some use of the step by step info on the 57. Let us know if you get the rifle fixed. Happy Thanksgiving to you and you family......Lonnie

Victor,

If you can not find the parts you need (as in no one like Gun Parts Corp stocks them anymore) don't forget to feel free to mention your needs on this thread just in case someone might have the part you need just taking up space in their home shop.

It worked for me once.

Hi, I just joined the forum because I found an old J. C. Higgins Mod 44 DLM in my grandpa's old gun safe. Something is wrong with it but I can't see any of the pictures here to take it apart. Apparently, photobucket stopped allowing third party hosting unless you give them 400 dollars a year, which is basically extortion.

Either way, does anyone still have the images that they can embed here from a site that doesn't participate in highway robbery? I could really use the help.

I saved the post(s) on the disassembly/reassembly last spring for my own personal use. I had just purchased a 57M. It is in a Word document.

Maybe one of the forum moderators could advise me on the proper procedure to repost. I don't want to step on any toes by reposting someone else's data. Ideally, the photos should be reinserted into the original post, perhaps by quoting the original post and inserting the photos. This would be a time consuming process requiring the photos in a Word document be converted to an img file, uploaded to imgur, and then inserted into the quote. No guarantee on how long it will take.

Could you possibly upload the word document to Google Drive or another sharing site? That would keep anyone from having to go through the whole process of re-doing the whole post (which I'm sure was a fair amount of work the first time around.)

I can't view any pictures. What does it mean when I see a picture that tells me to upgrade my account to enable third party hosting?

Trussman,

Photobucket which was a free picture hosting sight decided after years of being free to charge for being a host for folks pictures.

One might argue this is extortion or at the very least a "Violation of reasonable expectations" but unless there is some lawyer with little else to do that has been affected by this and wants to make an issue of it, Photobucket is not letting folks post to a third party even if it is some one they shared with in the past......like THR.

Down loading and having my own copy of this thread when it still had all the pictures and copying the pictures to my own drive is one of those big "WISHIDAs" for me as I depended on this thread.

If someone does have the complete with photos instruction section I wish the rest of us had access to it.

New post to an old thread ...

I checked and the last activity I see for the OP NAA_Silent was 2016. Do not know if he is still around the forum or even if he is still around period.

Just wanted to send out a THANK YOU to him for his efforts in posting this process.

It has allowed me to refurb and rebuild 2 Model 57's and 6 Model 57M's. I purchased the 1st of the 8 after I found this thread.

I found the 1st one, a 57, on GunBroker. Did a little research on it and was kind hooked on the LeverMatic action from watching a couple of videos. Then I read about the "NIGHTMARE" of disassembly / assembly. In further checking I found this thread.


After going through the thread I was still dumb enough to jump in. It was a good leap of faith.

Here is the latest - 57M ...

from here:




to here:




So thanks again. Threads like these are invaluable to "usin" guys who need "Gunsmithing for DUMMIES" guidance.

I created a word document also when the instruction first became available. I can email the file (3.4MB) if anyone needs it. If one of the Admins can help, maybe allow me to attach it to a sticky. File size restrictions are preventing me from doing that at the moment.

Link to File Testing

I am testing a link above. It should work, but if it does not, just PM me and I will email the file to you.

Brad
