View Full Version : Marlin 336CS 30/30 Problem

March 6, 2005, 03:35 PM
This gun wont feed the last round from the tube mag, consistently. Only pulls it about half way out of the tube. Is this a weak mag spring or something else?

I took it apart last night and cleaned the tube & spring up real good but it wasn't really very dirty, so I doubt it was just crud binding it.

Any ideas? Thanks.

I would think the spring is a little weak. Pull it out and stretch it about a foot and then replace it. If it needs a little more, you can always stretch it more. The spring can always be replaced if you can't get it to stretch enough to pop the round out of the magazine. I would make sure there are no burrs around the loading gate as well. Good luck with it.
