Marlin model 81 questions
I recently acquired a pretty nice Marlin model 81 tube fed .22. I'm curious, though. When the take-down screw is tightened, the feed tube seems to tighten up against the underside of the barrel. Isn't there suppose to be a consistent gap the entire distance of the two? I wonder if I should sand out the bottom of the stock groove or cork the sides of the stock to relieve the feed tube. Any suggestions?
Also, anyone have a good line on a Marlin aperture peep sight for the model 81?
Thanks in advance.
