Marlin Claw Extractor

#1 Post by Bronco » Thu Jul 12, 2018 8:07 am

Howdy,
This is touted as a more durable design than the original. I am not a purist so anything that make the rifle more reliable I am okay with. I know the original design has worked just fine for over hunerd yars, but. Any thoughts on this here part.

Looks like a really nice part. Never had a problem with the stock extractor on mine, though.

The extractor on my 1894 pretty well just BROKE - all I did was - er - well - leave it in when I took off the barrel (twisting the barrel shears off the extractor)... :oops:

Luckily I had an extra (I try to buy easy-to-break and easy-to-lose parts for guns I like).

I have several Marlin 1894's. The OEM parts work just fine. :D

Have owned hundreds of Marlin lever guns and never broken an extractor. The present design dates back to about 130 years in the first Model 1889. So if it has never been changed it's likely working just fine.

I agree with the boys above.........having own countless Marlins I never had a problem except for a 336 that was questionable to begin with.

I've had my 1894 Marlin 44 mag since new in 1976. I'm not a CAS shooter my rifle being a hunting rifle so I'm guessing hundreds of rounds not thousands but I'm still on my first extractor going strong. I've owned a model 36 and a model 336 which both suffered broken firing pins when purchased but extractors were fine. Are broken extractors a chronic problem in Marlins that I'm not aware of :?:

Thanks for the feed back.

I have not had any issues, but wanted to check the wisdom found here about the extractor. I did not know if an improvement was needed or warranted. Like I stated , the original had been around for longer than me, and I am almost as old as dirt :mrgreen:

Guess I will pass on this item!

I currently have a couple Marlins :shock: and have had a fairly large number of them over the last three decades. I have never had a problem with an extractor in any marlin. If it was me, I would spend the money, on a spare EJECTOR, and a firing pin set. Good luck. Great firearms.

Those Guy's at RPP are a cutting edge group. I was wondering why there have been changes to their webpage as of late. Now I see they are booked into 2019 with work. They long advertised the .36 RPP Levergun built on a Marlin action using .35 Whelan brass , with some pretty impressive numbers all at reasonable pressure limits. If I were 30 years younger I would have ordered one. https://www.rangerpointprecision.com/ma ... n-to-36rpp

That is impressive, but I've always wondered, instead of all the work modifying and lengthening the action, why companies don't just MAKE a new action - it seems like it would be less overall work, and allow even more freedom of engineering. Is it due to 'regulations' or something, or is it really harder to make a new receiver and parts than it is to modify an existing receiver and make or modify a bunch of new parts for it...???

Doc, In a thread that was running on Marlin owners I told them just that. make a new larger 1895 size action that would easily handle all the big bore common rounds. One could only Hope. 8) .
