Welcome to cas city, you cant go wrong with a .45. Easy cartridge to reload. Marlins are good guns with a few exceptions. Ubertis and Rugers make fine revolvers. The only Marlin parts I’ve ever broken were a couple one piece aftermarket firing pins and a lifter, before I did the jbweld repair, don’t remember having an extractor or ejector break. Never broken anything on my .45 Rugers. Ubertis are another story and some are fine and others need work to become cas guns. As occasional plinkers they are usually ok.

drstilecho, I think you might be able to better find the part you need over on the Marlin Firearms Forum. Sometimes the conversation here is a bit sporadic especially on the Marlin thread. For some reason the Marlin thread doesn't draw the interest many of the other firearms threads do. Just my observation. Hope you find what you are looking for.
