I have owned and used a Marlin 336 as a truck gun for 40 years. Never had a problem with it. I used a Marlin 1895ss in .45/70 as a survival rifle in Alaska for years. Once I got my handloads sorted out, I never had a problem. I have a 39A that shows no signs of problems. I wonder why I never heard of the Marlin Jam until today?
If ye love wealth better than Liberty, the tranquillity of servitude than the animated contest of Freedom, go from us in Peace. We ask not your counsel or Arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen. --Samuel Adams--<*ixoye><
