    I started a thread a while back in smithing and found no answers so I thought I'd try a more widely read sub forum. We have a problem with a Marlin 20a pump .22 The rifle was purchased missing some parts including the magazine spring (of course the seller assured my brother she was a great shooter, upon takedown we found the rifle was missing the fireing pin, the cartridge guide and stop and the magazine spring and follower, great shooter, heh:cuss:). The parts are bought but we just can't figure out how the magazine goes together.

    It's a unusual tube fed as it's the outer tube that moves rather than the inner. When the latch is released the outer tube pulls up to reveal the loading gate. Problem being the stud that mounts the tube seems, to my eye, to interfere with spring operation.

    If anyone has an early Marlin pump like this, any info on mag assembly would be great. If you'd be willing to break it down and post a couple pictures that would be even better. Or even a link to another site with info, I've searched but my google fu may be lacking. I found the blowup (thanks dferriswheel ) but this magazine still has us stumped.:banghead:

    She's a pretty little piece and we'd really love to make her a shooter again.


    This is a link to the original thread where I posted a couple pics of the rifle broken down. Again, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Mods, if this would be better in the rifle forum please feel free to move or delete, Thanks in advance.
