I went out this afternoon to shoot my Marlin Camp Carbine 9. I have shot it a few times before. I loaded a magazine with 5 Federal 115 gr FMJ rounds and shot them. I handed the rifle to my father to have him give it a try, but I could not get the magazine back into the gun.
In the magazine well there is a piece that sticks out slightly and is very rough. It is catching on the top of the magazine and preventing it from seating all the way. Instead, the magazine only goes about halfway into the well.
Has anyone else had this happen before? I bought the gun used about two years ago and have only fired it a handful of times.
When I return from my Christmas travels, I will have my gunsmith take a look at it, and I may try to post photos later.
