Will have to wait and see what they come up with. It did click into place, I made sure of that in the field.

The more we talk, the more it seems like it's going up too far, but since the dealer has it, nothing I can do just yet.

No other 922 anywhere in this valley, let alone the shop.

I got a 922M and had a great deal of trouble with ejection issues. It did come with the 7 round mags.

I contacted Marlin and sent it back to them at their request. They ended up doing a bunch of stuff, I can't recall but I think they replaced the bolt among other things, maybe they just worked on it.

Anyway, they also exchanged the mags, two for one and sent it on back. Since then it has worked flawlessly. I guess they had some problems with the rifle as they soon after removed it from their lineup, but they were able to satisfactorily fix mine.

Feed Problems

I agree with Chunkchucker. Keep your chamber clean and get a different mag. You might want to try different brands of ammo as well.

922m

My 5 shot clip says 5 SHOT on the bottom . The bottom is blued. Marlin worked on my feed problems --no cost, just shipping one way---also replaced original clip--this one is blued on the bottom. Bill

Thanks Chunkchucker. I think this may be the troubles I am having! I was about ready to give up on it.

922 M Fixed finally

Just to say Thanks! for the help in fixing my 922 M.

To clarify the fix for mine:
The magazine lip sticking up in the front interfered with the rim of the case and caused it to get stuck halfway out of the chamber. In addition, the next round coming into position would get hit by the bolt and push the bullet in. Just lucky that it didn't set off the round!

I ground off enough of the magazine lip to allow a chambered round to fall freely from the chamber. Such a simple fix. Makes me wonder how long it will hold up considering the magazine well and magazine locking parts are made out of some sort of polymer. I guess we will see.

So, once again, Thank you for helping me bring back this old soldier.

Since you revived a Mighty Old Thread...might as well dose you & everyone else with some updated info.

12-rd mags are available occasionally thru Numrich?other suppliers. Wish List it for updates.
They were originally for the 925M, which means you have to mill the Mag Catch hole yourself.
Same as with the standard 7-round .22WMR mags of any of the bolt action Top Hat-style Magnums.
https://www.gunpartscorp.com/products/1448130C

In case your buffer goes bad and you can't find a new one for the 922M,
the Marlin Camp 9 buffer is the exact same buffer. Just get one and slap it in.

Camp 9 stock also swaps.


To mill the mag catch hole...it's really simple...but if you've never worked with metal,
might be a good idea to pay someone to do it. It's worth it! 12-rounds of fun outta a 922M is PRICELESS!!
Ok...you simply PRECISELY measure the MC from the TOP of your OEM mag,
make a template, and then PRECISELY place the template over the new mag,
mark the OVAL, then SLOWLY drill the top & bottom holes, then use a file or dremel to cut out
the area between the drill holes. Oval Complete. File the burrs, clean, oil, and party on.
