I have an old Marlin 39 that I inherited from my dad. It's still a great shooting gun, except the last round out of the magazine will get jammed in the action every time . I have given the gun a good cleaning , but it still happens. I'm guessing the gun is a 50s vintage. Has anyone else had this?
Last round? I'm betting mag spring. Possible it is a fouled mag tube. Must be disassembled and thoroughly cleaned. While it is apart, give the spring a stretch. If it is the spring this will TEMPORARILY fix it. The spring will relax again to the previous condition and the problem will resurface.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.

I could make a list of a bunch of guns i have, or "have", or wish I had. Why would one feel compelled to provide that infornation freely? Do you feel the need to show off? Is it some immature game of oneupsmanship?
