    I have a Marlin 99 with a loose barrel (wiggles in the receiver), how would you go about tightening it back up? I’ve assumed I need to drive the pin out and reseat, but haven’t ever done it before.

    How much do you charge to do this? I have a m1 99 from 1971 that was my dad’s and then mine and it’s in rough shape I’d like to get it going.

    I bought a used model 60 and was going to go through it for a routine cleaning after bringing it home. At some point a previous owner had removed the little e-clips holding the internal hammer pack assembly together and then put the gun back together without them. I didn’t know this until the whole assembly literally exploded in my man cave. I spent a good bit of time looking for tiny springs and such. Finally got it back together and ordered some new e-clips from Numrich. What a p.i.t.a that could have been avoided.

    Thanks for the in depth video.
    I have a disintegrated plastic buffer. Can’t find any m99 specific parts for sale.
    Do you know if a m60 buffer would work?

    Where did you get the sanding block you used in the video? Thanks

    First gun I ever bought was the Glenfield 60 after mowing lawns for months. I lost track eventually, but know I put at least 30,000 rounds thru that thing, but it required a full breakdown and cleaning about twice a year. Watching you work on that gun, I recognized every part and it brought back a LOT of memories. Unfortunately, the gun met its demise when the bolt literally broke in half. Not surprisingly, it looks like it was just cheap pot metal, or some kind of die-cast part. The cost to replace it was nearly the price of the gun, so I strapped it to my back and walked around the Pomona Gun Show with it and sold it in less than an hour. Paid $72 for that gun in 1980, shot hundreds of squirrels with it, fired over 30K rounds thru it until it died, then sold it at a gun show in 1989 for $50. Best $22 I ever spent. BTW, just found your channel and love the vids and content. Hate to see the YouTube monetization issues, it sucks when top notch quality gets crapped on in the name of political correctness. I’m still subscribing anyways.

    Mine has no pin

  11. Creig Ballentine on December 8, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    Do you use a caliper or a firing pin protrusion gauge? Where do you find the min/max for protrusion? Thanks

    I have this rifle. I’m 71 and bought it as a kid when I was around 10-12. The Marlin "Bullseye" is long gone. I didn’t even know it was there. I just used a flashlight to look into the hole and saw glue remnants. Oh well. The leather sling rotted away back in the ’80’s. It’s never been cleaned since the ’70’s but, in times like this, I’ve ordered a cleaning kit to make it right. I have hollow points I managed to get from Wal-Mart about a year ago for home defense. Thank you for this detailed video for my only weapon.
