Stainless 1894 Carrier

Recommended Posts

AT $154.00 plus shipping and import fees I doubt it is worth it.

Gunner Gatlin will hardface your existing carrier for a more reasonable fee.
This avoids the wear and timing change which is the underlying cause of the Marlin jam.

If I had a carrier problem, I would decide on what the problem might actually be and then

get IT fixed accordingly before I would buy a new carrier, stainless or otherwise.

 

1.  If the washer has worked loose and/or fallen off, (and maybe lost the plunger stud), I would get a new plunger stud kit

from Slick McClade.   If you've still got the plunger stud, you can use a small portion of a ball point pin and secure it back

with a 1/8" E-clip.

 

2.  if you timing ramp has worn and is bad, send it to Gunner.  If you want your rifle to be reliable with short OAL ammo, send the carrier to

Gunner.    Short OAL ammo requires a slightly lifted ramp of just a few .000's.

 

Just a couple helpful thoughts.
