Don't know who did action work. I installed a new lightened lever action spring kit from Johnny Meadows some time ago, and no it's not short stroked.......


Hope that answers your questions.......


FYI I tried to find out who did it but no luck. There are no markings on the bolt, etc. . I have had a couple of Carty rifles and this is just as fast and smooth, but the lever throw is longer..........

Rootin, I have had three of these over the years, and the last two would chamber and run with .357s. I found this out when I loaded them by accident, and to my surprise, they worked. I contacted Marlin and asked about this, and their reply was that they had run out of .38 only barrels and just used the ones from the regular 20" Cowboy guns as they were phasing the CBC out anyway. Doesn't hurt them in any way, just a bit of providence on SOME of them. For info only, as well as a free BTT>
