Your Marlin 49DL trigger has hung up The trigger just stopped working and will not release to strike the firing pin The gun is very clean?
tolerances have been degraded between the firing pin fulcrum and the release. examine pivot-point wear and never exclude the small chance that a single grain of dead powder is between the firing pin and the hammer. reproduction of the original hammer-pin isn't rocket science.....make a template of the original, then add a couple of tenths to the new part.....very nice rifle, and an easy gun to repair!
"go to DIP and buy a target trigger for around $30" I take it from that statement you don't own the DIP trigger. I do, it's been on my 60 for over a year, it does not reduce trigger pull. It's a great rigger, I like the straight profile over the curved Marlin trigger and the adjustment for trigger pre-travel, but it doesn't reduce trigger pull. This has been confirmed by several DIP trigger owners…
How do I remove the bolt on a Marlin 100G single shot. Pulling the bolt back and squeezing the trigger does not work on this model. Ray?
At a good gunsmith's shop. Maybe Numrich's Gun Parts (search gunpartscorp) For the complete trigger guard assembly, including trigger, safety, springs, pins etc., you can get it from Numrich, Midway USA, Brownells or direct from Marlin. If it's just the trigger or other individual trigger guard parts you need, you'll have to get those from Numrich for a different model Marlin.
