I have a Marlin 99M1 that I used to shoot all the time as a kid with no issues. I recently picked it up from my parents house and it has failure to feed issues. The cartridge will get stuck with the nose up too high above the chamber and the rim still down angled down in the feed throat. It also will have issues with ejecting if you can get one to chamber. Has anyone else experienced this with this rifle? Could it be a bad cartridge lifter spring or worn out lifter? I would really like to get this rifle back to working condition as it was my dad's as a teenager. I could probably buy a new .22 for cheap, but I really would really like to replace the worn out parts on this one b/c of the reason stated above. There was an old plastic buffer that was cracked that I will have to replace. I ordered a schematic from Numrich so I can see clearer what I need vs what you can see online. I just want to make one order so I can get this thing running. I need a few new screws b/c the old ones are a little beat up, the new buffer, a new recoil spring (b/c I bent the old one :banghead:).
If anyone can lend any insight as to what might be worn out to cause the failure to feed issue I am all ears.

I had the same rifle. In my case it was the buffer. Changed the buffer and the problem was solved. It also would never shoot slow or fast ammo, but shot standard velocity stuff wonderfully.

Thanks. I am replacing the buffer so that would be great if that was the issue.

It will most likely be the feed throat assy., have the serial number handy, when you call Numrich. that way you will get the right part.
