I have a few questions I want to ask

#1 Post by Celena » Wed Oct 09, 2019 9:53 pm

Hello from the UK,

Have the above rifle, and the cartridge lifter doesn’t work reliably even with a hard cycle.

Have stripped, cleaned and lubed the rifle with some improvement although the lifter is only popping up 80% of the time.

I’m generally loading 250 grain LRN at 1.57 COAL so no problems there - I don’t think!

Am considering polishing the sides of the lifter where it pivots to lower the friction as far as possible - hopefully to slick it up.

Aside from that not sure what to do, although concerned that the cartridge guides could be impeding the cartridge and lifter from popping up - if so, perhaps adjusting these could help?

Welcome aboard! :) And yes, what is the rifle?
Have you hugged your rifle today?

Welcome aboard, Celena !

W/O knowing what kind/brand of rifle, I would say that (generally) something's binding the lifter.

IMO, it could be at least one of three things that cause your issue:

1) Debris inside the action, in which case it would need to be dis-assembled for a deep cleaning.

2) A faulty lifter spring, which would need replacement (if your rifle has the spring - not all rifles do)

3) A bent lifter pivot pin (don't ask me how I know this ;) )

Please keep us posted...…. 8)

I wonder if perhaps this was right above or under the recent marlin 1894 cst post originally hence the identification omission......

Anyway, welcome.....

You should understand that the posts change order as they are organized by the time of the most recent post, be it an initial post or a reply to it. Therefore, I'd suggest that you include the salient facts of your question or comment in the post itself and not rely on a previous one.

That said, welcome aboard. As far as your question on Marlin leverguns, I don't own one so will defer to those who do.
