Default marlin trigger flop?

So I have had my marlin 30-30 for many years, (fantastic rifle), but I have a question, when I cock the action and chamber a round, the trigger gets really loose. Like it is just dangling there. I never had a misfire due to this, but was just wondering if its normal. Thanks for any reply.

Normal state for Marlin lever actions, due to the two piece trigger/sear.

There are aftermarket one piece triggers that will prevent that, but it is pretty normal in the 336 family of rifles. And harmless.

No comments about Viagra, now...........
