What?? The lever is a factory fitted part, not a controlled part. Remington/Marlin refer to it as a "restricted part", and probably won't send you the lever, but rather will have you send the rifle in so it can be properly fitted. They may have said it has to be sent to a factory certified gunsmith/warranty facility, hence an FFL, of course, but it certainly isn't a federally controlled part.

I guess I'm curious as to exactly why the lever failed. Old gun? Abused gun? Poor metalurgy?

Also, out of curiousity, were you shooting reloads or factory ammo?

The thought of that bolt coming back dotting my eye kinda makes me a little spooky.

I don't see how the lever could have broken without damage to the locking block, unless there was an out of battery discharge and the locking block wasn't in place... a situation that could possibly have been caused by a high primer or somesuch.

Ya know... I don't see the locking bolt in your pictures... it looks like you've got a one piece firing pin in it... if the locking bolt was left out when it was reassembled, the end of the lever would be the only thing holding the bolt closed... and that isn't going to work very long... maybe a dozen rounds, if you're lucky.



Do you have another part that looks like #42 in THIS schematic?

Not sure if it is the same part you are looking for, but Midway has a replacement Marlin 1894 lever as an item number: Product #: 419921

JBar4Ranch,
I don't remember seeing anything like the locking bar. I'll have to check that when I get home.

Thanks.

i have experienced several primers on my re-loads not seated enough to allow battery...but all on my 30/30 rifles.

it would be easy i imagine on the shorter .357 round to have the same situation and during the force of engaging the lever not realize the bolt is in full battery and pull the trigger....bet that is what happened.

good call to whoever mentioned it!
