Marlin Action

(1/4) > >>

William R. Foster:
Since there isnt a dedicated marlin page, i have a question. Is it possible to smooth/ slick up the action of the marlin rifles? I know it will never ne as smooth or as fast as a nice 73 or 92, but im curious.

Major 2:
Absolutely .....  Others may be more eloquent , but I wrote a tutorial for the NCOWS Shootist on just this subject .
It was based on the best advise and coaching from CoffinMaker....
It transformed my 32/20 Classic Limited  and since a 45 Cowboy for my friend.

I used these parts , and will PM you my tutorial.

Awesome.  Thanks

PJ Hardtack:
Marlins have the reputation of getting smoother the more you use them. My wife's [JM] .357 (pre-push button safety) is getting smoother after years of use. All I did was install a one piece firing pin.

The only Marlins I have seen that gibbled up were those that had been worked on, "tuned" by an 'expert'. That usually meant over polishing of critical parts. Same for the '97s  I've seen that gibble up.

Coffinmaker:

Thank Major 2.

The Marlin can be cleaned up to run very smooth and quite fast.  Judicious Rubbin-n-Buffin, change some springs and go.  Like anything else, you can go over the top.  I don't necessarily think it's a swell idea to over buff the moving parts till the gun rattles.  There is a vast difference between smooth and worn out.  I've seen entirely too many guns returned from "big deal" tuners that were completely clapped out while being brand new.  Exercise some care please.
