Frequently Asked Questions

How to do a trigger job on Marlin 336?

A trigger job on a Marlin 336 should be done by a gunsmith as it involves about an hour of filing on and replacing certain parts such as the springs and sears. Alternately, you can purchase a Ranger Point trigger which reduces the weight to 3-4 lbs. and removes the excess flop. The installation takes about 10 minutes.

How to replace a loading gate on Marlin 1895?

First, remove the old loading gate by unscrewing the two screws that hold it in place (they're located on either side of the gate). Next, take your new loading gate and line it up with the holes where the screws go. Once it's in place, screw in the new screws. That's it!

Can you build your own lever action?

There are no kits sold for building your own lever action rifle. There are a few gunsmiths out there that can customize your lever gun in various ways such as: cutting and threading the barrel, installing performance or tactical parts, or painting the rifle with Cerakote.
