    Does anyone know what size the dovetails are for scope mounts?

    Where do you get a clip



  7. Rightslip on November 19, 2021 at 10:21 pm

    Excellent video thanks!



  8. Mike Campbell on November 19, 2021 at 10:21 pm

    I received one of these for Christmas 1973. It is in near mint condition and shoots great.

    I got one from a department store in about 76, 77 never had a feed problem that I recall, just a good all around rifle,very much a Tack driver off the shelf. Thinking of sanding and refinishing it for something to do.

    My old Glenfield 25 (barrel stamp says mfg date is Jan, 68) has always had a problem eating cartridge guide springs, so it doesn’t get used much. I’ve always taken it to a gunsmith for replacement, but I’d like to be able to do it myself. Is that a difficult job?

    Hola David Drake ¡! Buen dia yo tengo un rifle e igual al tuyo pero perdi mi cargador y no he podido conseguirlo hay alguna posibilidad de que puedas ayudarme a adquirirlo !?



  12. R Martinez on November 19, 2021 at 10:25 pm

    Thanks for video….I have a JC Higgins 103.229, purchased when a teen, I am 75 yrs. Mine won’t elevate cartridges into chamber. But your video was enlightening …thanks



  13. Brett Doney on November 19, 2021 at 10:28 pm

    I just bought one of these. Who makes the magazine’s you bought and where did you buy them?



  14. Huuge on November 19, 2021 at 10:28 pm

    Great solve…The issue with my 25 completely.fixed.Thank you Dave.

    The old mag just looks worn out. I have one of these rifles. I got it at age 14 back in the 70’s. It still works perfectly. The original magazines all had steel followers and they hold 8 rounds (mine still works flawlessly). The replacements with the plastic followers hold 7 rounds. The biggest problem with these rifles is that people treated them like crap since they were inexpensive.

    Unless you have gotten a LOT better in the last two years, you’re not a gun guy either. You don’t use live rounds of ammunition, to function check a firearm. That is what snap caps are for. That little dohicky is called an extractor.



  17. 58efd on November 19, 2021 at 10:33 pm

    Excellent video. Just got one of these, non-Glenfield model 25 at a gunshow in Ft Dodge IA, $130, cleaned it and it shoots great. If I ever have your issue, I’ll be able to adjust that little wire doodad. Thanks! 3/6/21



  18. The Lone Rider on November 19, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    Got the western auto version… hope you have luck as it does indeed not cycle every round smoothly. I honestly wanted a single shot rifle so I’m not disappointed, but… still hope to fix it!



  19. Clifton Randolph on November 19, 2021 at 10:36 pm

    Hello will the Marlin / Glenfield  Model 25 Magazine fit a Marlin 22 LR Model 105?  I have my dad left to me. I cannot seem to find a magazine the fits correctly.



  20. Sheldon Heather sr on November 19, 2021 at 10:38 pm

    I’ve had my glenfeld 25 since 81 I’ve wore out 2 mags they dont feed well with the old mags



  21. Yisroel First on November 19, 2021 at 10:39 pm

    I picked one of these up recently, and the bolt starts to stick after 100 rounds or so. Is this normal for a gun like this? Any info would be great.



  22. Alexis Villanueva on November 19, 2021 at 10:39 pm

    Sears roebuck and co 22 lr

  24. Whogotthedank 707 on November 19, 2021 at 10:45 pm

    Can you disassemble the bolt? My firing pin must be stuck. Its will fire than come the next round itll just click. Leaving the pin mark on the bullet as well but not enough to fire it, I have to rack the bolt up and down than itll fire.. it’s a pain.. cant seem it find a bolt video on this exact firearm.



  25. john kendall on November 19, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    There is no spring behind it . Its just a piece of heavy spring steel wire and with too much shooting it got bent . just bend it up a little . Pretty common on this model. Ps does your safety work backwards from most , back to fire



  26. Cleveland Performance Parts on November 19, 2021 at 10:47 pm

    Good video, how does the bolt come out?



  27. paul k on November 19, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    had one equipped with a 4x scope and sling but sold it.
    man i missed that gun and when my wife’s bro in law told me he had a .22 he would sell me for $50 i took a look and it was the same model. the barrel had been stripped down and was all shiny but i had some gun blue and it did not take me but a few seconds to buy that little shooter from him. that was years ago and i still have it and it now sports a 3-9 scope and a sling, naturally.



  28. J IsMyName on November 19, 2021 at 10:49 pm

    I have a Glenfield model 20 in .22 cal. very similar that my dad gave me back in the mid 80’s that is an absolute tack driver for what it is. I had the exact same problem years ago as well as a worn extractor. Nice video sir.



  29. gcdiver on November 19, 2021 at 10:49 pm

    Still have mine from the late 1970’s that my brother gave me for my birthday when I was 15. Still in mint condition and has original 4×15 Glenfield scope. However, scope got damaged and I’m replacing it with a Barska 3x9x32 scope. Great little shooter. Wish they made larger capacity mags for it. And the 7 rounders you can find on-line are really expensive.



  30. Mark Brown on November 19, 2021 at 10:50 pm

    Got mine in 74-75, abused it and she still shoots sweet. Hard to beat these glenfields



  31. JT 6188 on November 19, 2021 at 10:51 pm

    Got mine in 1974. Still Have it. Shoots like a champ.



  32. Michael Britain on November 19, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    I have it’s Son the 925, it’s a keeper…



  33. Steve Russell on November 19, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    My first gun I got it on the 90s a shot 1000s of rounds



  34. San Zilla on November 19, 2021 at 10:57 pm

    Any ideas where you can buy a bolt for one of these rifles?



  35. Tony V on November 19, 2021 at 10:57 pm

    I was really enjoying this video until you dry fired the rifle…lost all credibility with me…sorry



  36. Mark Webb on November 19, 2021 at 10:58 pm

    It’s been my experience with my rifle that all the magazines I have rattle a little bit. That does not affect function at all.

    I’m also guessing that the old magazine in the video is probably the original. Wouldn’t surprise me at all to find out that it’s just worn out.



  37. Lucas Read on November 19, 2021 at 10:58 pm

    Great video!! Thank you for the knowledge! Marlin 25 is my first Bolt Action!



  38. RatdogDRB on November 19, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    I believe you can buy the parts needed to rebuild that old mag (from Numrich). Sure would be cheaper than buying another mag.

    My Glenfield 25 is a tack driver. At about 40 yds, I’ve been able to put one round touching the next one, five in a row. And, that was with a CHEAP scope. I have a Cabelas multi-turret 3-9×40 coming for it.



  39. Gordon Potter on November 19, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    My Grandfather bought this model for me in 1967 was I turned 14. Still use it all the time. Never a problem. However I just lost the clip.



  40. SEKAF on November 19, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    Awesome video thank you so much. I have a marlin model lady that is doing the same thing for ejecting. So you bent the ejector spring up or towards the right exactly?. And by the way where did you get the new magazines I cannot find any thank you again for your detailed up close and very clear video



  41. Rich Wilcox on November 19, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    Nice pic of the “micro-grooves”!



  42. The sinner Jim Whitney on November 19, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    I have a 1977 model Marlin Glenfield 25, my first firearm, given to me by my favorite big cousin when I was 10 in 1995. It had the sorta rare factory scope and rings on it. I put a better one on it, but kept the old one. I see someone took a grinder to your bolt handle for scope clearance as I did. I’ll never sell mine, so I don’t care. It remains one of the most accurate .22 rifles I’ve ever fired, though I think it may need a firing pin, as it doesn’t fire even CCI more than about 9 out of 10 rounds. It isn’t worth the price of gunsmithing, but it’s priceless to me and it’ll be refurbished soon. I couldn’t begin to guess how many times it’s been fired, I’m sure I’ve fired close to 100,000 rounds through it, let alone the twenty years before I got it. I’ve slicked and polished up the trigger and everything, these little rifles are SO good for what you have to pay for them. I hope your project comes out the way you want it to, good luck!



  43. Steve douglas on November 19, 2021 at 11:03 pm

    Seemed like the old magazine was causing issues, but isn’t ejecting after the fact?



  44. Jarod Tonneson on November 19, 2021 at 11:04 pm

    Anyone else find the magazine hard to release?



  45. sackett68 on November 19, 2021 at 11:05 pm

    Good video. I love tinkering with an old gun and making her run again. Highly satisfying.



  46. Taurus/Hipoint Enthusiast on November 19, 2021 at 11:05 pm

    …..I wonder if 1st magazine/clip is actually ok? just a good cleaning needed? New Spring? for the mag of course



  47. No RulesLawyers on November 19, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    THANK YOU! Bending the !@#$ out of my ejector actually fixed it! (Part #11 on the illustration)



  48. ritesideofthefence 58 on November 19, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    Bend the ejector over just a tad. Happens to all the older marlins.



  49. Rob S on November 19, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    Just traded for one of these yesterday. Mine is date stamped for September of 1967, and has never been fired (zero evidence of powder fouling), and not a spot of rust anywhere. I really want to shoot it, but I think I’d feel bad if I did. Lol.



  50. jesse juguilon on November 19, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    Got mine from 1983 from my dad, taking it out on Memorial Day this Monday 5-27-19
