can you tell us the exact problem? it wont load as in you can get the magazine in, or when you go and cock it, it wont pull back and subsequently it wont load the bullet into the chamber?

actually i just found a thread in this forum just like yours--

and im quoting user c3shooter "Suggest you contact marlin- (marlingun.com) and see if they have a manual. Common problems to rimfires are: Action is cruddy and needs cleaning (22 RF ammo is pretty dirty) OR: Gun has been dry fired too much, and pin has put a burr on mouth of chamber (sign is a scratch mark on side of case when extracting) IF that is the problem, DO NOT REMOVE THE BURR- but I can tell you how to fix it- easily."

no after action report was filed by the original poster, so i do not know what he did...

I have a 99m1. Mine is tube fed. If yours is the same the lifter ( not sure thats the proper term) could be dirty and that is causing your problem. When I first got mine it fed unreliably until I fully disassembled and cleaned it. Now it runs fine. By the way it really likes CCI minimags.
