Podunk Utah....

actually two parts......best I watched....

so for you guys that like to tinker.....watch this....

Although I use a 6" buffing wheel & blue polishing compound.......

this guy suggests 600 grit wet/dry paper...any Marlin will benefit from this

Of course......1894's & 1895's same process

Good video after the 10 minute preamble.

In my many Marlins, the slot in the bolt that accepts the end of the lever arm appears to be the most rough and poorly machined area of each rifle.

My operations on the bolt surface are limited to using polishing compound.

Would hold off on using a file in the ejector groove channel.

Good results can be obtained by the proper use of a bluing pen to touch up the steel on blued parts polished.

Looks like he has replaced the rear leaf sight with a peep sight, which is much higher. Wouldn't this require a higher front sight too?

When I replaced my rear sight with a skinner winged peel, I had to buy the corresponding front so that it would line up. YMMV.

Great video!

Jim Green does a good video on disassembly for those new to the care of an 1895:
