    Okay, I got my rifle back from Marlin today and I am happy so far! The work order says that they replaced the lever and removed some burrs in the receiver then tested it. It looks like they also replaced the ejector but it was not listed on...

    I know a lot of people have had bad experiences with Marlin/Remington. The Marlin owners forum is full of "Remlin" haters. When I try to tell those guys over there to be positive and not be backward looking haters I earn myself a time out. I try...

    Hello guys and thank you, All great suggestions for sure! I have tried a new nipple and it improved the condition slightly. I am in contact with the nice folks at L&R. They want me to send them a trace outline of my lock so that they can be...

    Hello friends, I bought a new Marlin 1894 in 45 Colt. It developed bolt problems and instead of tinkering with it myself I decided to test out Marlin/Remington's customer service for their new guns. I posted about it in an earlier thread below....

    Thank you everyone for your help and suggestions. I will try a new nipple. I am waiting to hear back from L&R via email. I know this is not a top of line rifle but I have a soft spot for the "underdogs" like Hi-Points, etc. This rifle...

    Hello friends, In a previous thread you guys helped me identify a new to me rifle. It is a 36 cal percussion and the consensus is that is was a Richland Arms rifle. Or at least it started life as a Richland Arms gun. The rifle is very...

    I too am a fan of paper plates. I shoot swingers mostly but occasionally I will try to shoot for groups. I buy rolls of 2" stick on dots on Amazon. They come in several colors. An orange dot on a white paper plate works great. That is...

    I too am a revolver man. And a S&W fanatic. I have N, L and K frames as well as Rugers and others. I like big 44 and 45 caliber bullets and loud booms. But I love my heavy 357 mag loads the most in my M28's and my Marlins. Having said all...

    I actually tried swapping ejectors first with no change. I thought "This is a brand new gun, why am I considering tinkering on it?" I automatically started trying to fix it myself. But I decided to try an experiment. This time of year I...

    I love my Classic Turret press. I load for several calibers and I have dedicated turrets for all of them. In my long range Savage model 12 I use a Lee Classic Cast single stage. I shoot a much lower volume of these rounds so a single stage...

    Normally I would take that very good advice. But this is not a vanity project. You say whatever i hit won't know the difference. Again, under normal circumstances, I would agree. But I can't hit anything with this rifle. The chamber on this...

    Good morning, I bought this .36 caliber rifle recently. I am looking for any info you guys can provide. It looks like maybe it was a kit, I don't know. I am new to muzzleloaders and I don't have an extensive background. I took it all apart....

    Hey neighbors and fellow Marlin fans, I stopped into one of my favorite shops the other day to see if there was anything that I couldn't live without. On the used rack was a JM Marlin 1894 in 44-40. It was in very good shape. The action was...
