I have two Marlins both in .357mag (one cowboy and one carbine) and they both love to jam.
Is there a self fix or take them to the gunsmith?

check out the Marlin owners forum. Lots of good info on that problem and fixes.

My 1894SS required a little TLC to fix the jam. Nothing too major but a little frustrating, best of luck.

is this true for 357 and .38? I have no issues with .38.
