Get onto Rimfire Central's Marlin bolt-action section for specific tweaks with really great pics

IF it has two action screws, you can free-float it, if not, you will have to add a second screw (D/T) before doing so.

Pen Spring...easiest mod on earth.
But I've found that once you take the trigger assembly apart, and carefully stone all mating surfaces & re-oil...
it makes the trigger MUCH nicer...some no longer need lighter springs...that's in detail on RFC as well

did the pen spring trigger modification and have a new set of rings and mounts on the way to make it a picatinny rail. I will add some sling swivels as well and in the future look to add a bipod. I will post pics in a few days when all of the parts arrive. Thanks for all of the info everyone... One last thing can anyone help me identify when my rifle was manufactured?
