I picked up my dad's 1976 comemorative model 336. The top, front of the bolt cleaved off and jammed about 1/8" back from the fully closed position. It has to be a bad cast because the gun probably hasn't fired one full box of factory ammo. I thought I could get it apart for him but I don't really know what I'm gonna find in there as far as springs, retainers, hard-to-reinstall parts.
If anyone has pulled one of these rifles apart and has any pointers I would appreciate comments. Also, If anyone knows how cool Marlin will be about giving me a new bolt for free 'cause their crap broke, let me know.
Never mind the full disassembly question. Apparently one screw gets the job done.
