What’s causing the lever to pop open on my 336T ? I have to hold it closed when I shoot it . How hard is this to fix ?

sounds like the lever plunger spring may have been changed......or weak ?

Wolfe makes lightweight springs for Marlins.....

Makes opening/closing lever easier.......

but can & will not stay locked in place....

What a pain. I bet if you post this over on the Marlin Owners forum, you'll get an answer quickly.

We posted at almost the same time, so your answer didn't show up for me until I hit the "Post Reply" button and apparently you had just posted it.

Stretch or replace the plunger spring.


Don't ask me about my military service or heroic acts...most of it is untrue.

It is easy, I was gifted an old 336 in 35 Remington last year, I put a new finger lever plunger and spring in it, as well as a new two piece firing pin, that old rifle should be ready for a hundred more hunting seasons. smile

Replace the plunger and the spring while you have it apart.
