So we've recently got a brand new 39A and boy is it acting up. We've been shooting some Federal bulk that we've had on hand for the Ruger Mk III. I should note here that I can't remember the Ruger ever malfunctioning. In the 39A, it's hard to shoot more than 5 shots without some kind of malfunction. a)binds in the chamber (failure to eject) b)The rod which is supposed to push the round into the chamber is getting underneath the round, causing it to nose down and jam in the action. c)weak primer strikes. A nice stranger at the range let us try some Winchester stuff and that didn't bind but we were still getting weak primer strikes and jam ups on the loading ramp. I'm hoping that, short of sending is back to Marlin, their might be something that can be done to help resolve these problems. Thanks for your attention!
