Marlin 336
« on: March 25, 2014, 09:07:27 am »
I'm going to look at a buddies marlin 336. It's an older version that belonged to his Dad. This gun will feed rounds 1 and 2 but jams on the third. I'm thinking magazine spring. Any suggestions?

    I just went through this with my Rossi 92 carbine. What I did was remove the magazine tube. There was a small dimple that was impeding the follower. I put a piece of 3/8" rod in the tube and tap-a-tap tap until the follower would fall through. I re-assembled it and test fired it. It was feeding poorly. I took it apart again and cleaned the tube (it was filthy) and polished the follower with a green scrubby pad. Took it out and I ran fifty rounds without a problem.

    I'd also take a look at the spring. A lot of "middle of mag" FTF's have to do with a weak spring.
