Marlin Model 49 Problem: Reassembly!
 
So I am cleaning this filthy Marlin Model 49 .22 LR and now I can't get the dang thing back together correctly.

When I pulled out the trigger assembly the hammer was cocked. While I was cleaning the assembly, I deliberately pulled the trigger and the hammer came down of course. I finished cleaning and lubing all components and put the .22 back together.

However, pulling the charging handle back does not cock the gun anymore (I'm ashamed to admit it worked fine before I got my hands on it). So I pulled the assembly back out and tried to put the hammer in other positions and it still will not charge/cock when I pull the charging handle back.

Note that I did NOT disassemble the trigger assembly so it cannot be anything connected to that. I feel that the issue has to do with the orientation of the hammer during reassembly but I know nothing about this particular .22 (it's not mine) and the Marlin website does not offer help with these older models.

Any help or pointers would be appreciated. I feel like I'm missing something pretty basic here but I sure can't figure it out. Is there something quirky about reassembling the model 49?

You did not say if you let the hammer fly off full cock when you pulled the trigger or eased it forward. If you let it go on it's own, you most likely damaged the hammer and/or sear or any of the associated springs. Do not dissasemble the group, you probably won't get it back together. Take it to a gunsmith and he will check the hammer, sear, disconector and springs.Don't take him a bag full of parts (have had many come to me like this), you will be charged extra. Hope this helps..

Marlin Reassembly Completed
 
Thank you for your assistance. Ultimately, I did take it to a gunsmith who informed me that I allowed the hammer spring to jump off the correct alignment on it's strut. He fixed it for me, $10. Not a bad price considering I spent three hours (at least) mulling this problem over!

I put together my own version of an "owner's manual" for this .22. It's a powerpoint presentation. I'm happy to e-mail it to anybody who wants it.

Here's a PDF manual for the 49 and a Power Point presentation on taking down the model 60, should be similar to your 49.
