  1. A 'O' ring on the cross bolt safety will stop it from accidently going on. I find Midway USA a good source for Marlin parts.
  2. Thanks Deuce on that note, just pray it isn't your 45-70. Rob
  3. Smokestack, The Trigger Happy wouldn't work in mine, I felt it was unsafe. Contacted Wild West they would do nothing about it. Rob
  4. I can say nothing but good things about Dillon, they stand behind there product. NO BS Warranty that's the truth.
  5. Jimmy, I had a similar problem in my Marlin 1895 with the Wild West trigger happy trigger I posted here. The consensus was it was my fault and not that the trigger was made bad, it too would fire out of battery not touching the trigger block, maybe the hole was drill in the wrong place in the sear and trigger making it short. Yes if you still have the 3 peace firing pin in your gun it wouldn't matter but like a lot of cowboys they have put the one peace firing pins in and yes it could go off out of battery. I put the stock trigger back in, may be floppy, but gun is safe again. Wild West was no help and I had it to long to send it back to who I bought it from. Like the one cowboy said Marlin work good right out of the box. Your lucky you get to send it back. Rough'N'Ready Rob
  6. At the The River City Regulators annual match, they give out cowbells as prizes. They are different sizes and colors, gold,silver and bronze according to placement. They have, I'm sure, computer generated stickers on them, one side name of the club and the logo and on the other side class and placement. They are fun to hang on your gun cart as they ring along as you move from stage to stage. They know you are coming, if you need to get someone's attention as you can get a grip on it and ring the heck out of it.
  7. Hi Mike, I know your looking for a 73. Thought I would put this out there and see if you maybe interested. I have a H&R target rifle looks like buffalo rifle in 38-55 with Marbles improved tang, I know it would take some gold too. I can send pics. to your email if you're interested. Thanks Rob
  8. I'm 71 years old, this is not my first rodeo. I worked as a apprentice machinist for two year, not my cup of tea. Went in to heavy construction, worked in the shop repairing heavy equipment in the winter mouth. Built a couple fast race cars. When I retired I went three weeks to summer school gun smithing classes to learn to work on cowboy gun. I know I could fix this if I could find some one that can tig weld or maybe some J-B weld and a hacksaw blade and some filing to make up the 12 Thousandth between the back of the trigger and trigger stop, I find this as putting good money and time after bad. I put the stock trigger back in, maybe a little floppy but the gun is safe now. I pray no one has there gun fire out of battery A 45-70 pushing a 1/2" bolt back would do more then a little hurt. This is the last I will say on this subject. Rob
  9. Thanks everyone for your input. I put this out here because I think a gun that could fire out of battery is a major safety issue.If you own a Marlin and have installed a Trigger Happy trigger you may want to check it. Simple check leave the lever down pull the trigger if the hammer drop you have a problem. Yes I'm not happy with the manufacturer, You would think they would want to do all they can to correct a safety issue. Rob
  10. To big is great, but to small is not, I can weld some but not on small parts like a trigger.
  11. Widowmaker My Marlin can be fired anytime in the lever travel there is .012 thousandths between back of the trigger and the front of the trigger block with the Trigger Happy, Bad trigger. Put stock trigger back in the gun works fine. What Gripes me Is the manufacturer and the seller won't stand behind it. I think I agree Al, Marlin work well right out of the box. Rob
  12. I purchased a Wild West Guns Trigger Happy Kit some time back for my 1895 Marlin in 45-70. I don't use this gun to often maybe twice a year for long range, I did the other day. A day later I was cleaning it, gun that was apart when I hit the trigger and the hammer drop, that shouldn't happen. I put the gun back together brought the lever up to almost touching the trigger block and pulled the trigger and the hammer dropped, this gun could fire out of battery. I contacted Wild West Guns they say it's my trigger block. I put two stock trigger back in the gun they both work fine. i contacted them back they wouldn't do any thing, told me to contact Midway who I purchased it from they're no help ether. I have a $100.00 trigger that is use-less, I know there are ways to make it work but I shouldn't have to at that price. Bottom line is that if you have a Wild West trigger in your Marlin you may want to check it. I do have a Happy Trigger in my 336 Marlin works fine, but will be the last one I will ever buy. Midway maybe on my short list too. Thanks for looking. Rob
