Something else to consider. These early Marlin 22's were not intended to shoot modern high speed ammunition. Doing so will result in a broken bolt. Replacement bolts are nowhere to be found either. If you must shoot this rifle, do so with standard velocity ammunition only. Dont think that shooting modern 22 shorts as a solution as their chamber pressure is as great as long rifle cartridges. I have alot of experence in breaking bolts in these early guns. Before I began to educate myself, I broke 3 bolts in early Marlins.
