    That's pretty much the norm, sadly.  When you look at other shooting sports, they are dominated by minorities; Asians and Hispanic folks in particular.   But we in CAS make no serious outreach to those groups.   Each year, the Central California Pistol League holds its championship match in our Fort Miller cowboy town.   They're a great bunch of folks to visit with, except they're focused on winning big prises, like last year's Jeep and 16 Dillon 750 loaders.  They do love our props, and a few have come around to watch our matches.  But I think we're a bit slow moving for their taste.  

    But watch out if we ever start attracting them.  Those men and women can shoot VERY fast and accurately.  They're used to shooting on the run at targets with scoring rings.   

    Tell her "Thank you" for some very nice work.  

    If what you say about minorities in other shooting sports is true, my question is how is the marketing directed to them or other minorities?

    I laugh at it being central! 26 hour drive for us to you...only 17 to the California coast...

    About 13 hours to Arkansas....

    But none of that matters...




    And it's pronounced Bell Foosh, about 30 miles NW of me. They had a nice marker setup for years and then decided it was actually a few miles more towards town.

    Deep clean the rec'r and magazine tube. Maybe take some coils off the mag spring.

    Hope you're not still run'n the plastic mag follower.

    Have you ck'd ALL screws for tightness? 


    Did deep clean it, a couple of times

    Metal follower

    Checked and rechecked screws

    The loading gate looks very worn on the bottom, it has some serious marks on it, you can see where the rounds are slipping under it. I ordered a new one from Ranger Point.

    Turn the sound off. It's annoying. 

    Thanks , I did watch the You Tube video by Ranger Point and followed it, I gave getting the hammer assembly a few tugs and after a few tries did get it free and out. Thanks for your input.

  7. As a side note when I tried to remove the hammer assembly it won't come out, I removed the screw that holds it in as well as the hammer spring and it's still attached somewhere I can't see. It pivots on something. What am I missing? The original is in fact not flat, but there is a very small bump and it's worn quite badly. I got the original out .

    I agree with Warden.


    If that doesn't work, take the rifle apart and see if your loading gate is 'flat' on the back side.

    If you have an older Marlin (like 20+ years older) its possible to have a flat loading gate.


    If its flat, then I will share more info to help fix.




    It is flat on the back side, I tried holding the lever closed and that made no difference. Would one of Ranger Points replacements do the trick? I was thinking about trying one anyways to make it easier for her to load.
