Has anyone here had the Marlin jam?

I've read about it but haven't had it and I just wondered how common it really is.

Pretty common with the 1894. Happens usually when a groove is worn in the lifter. Easily fixed. Go to Marlinowners and search.

I have. I was just wondering if it's very common since when it happens it hits the forums and gets a lot of attention.

I've read about it but the dozen or so Marlins I've had haven't exhibited it.
