    I have never owned a Marlin until yesterday. I bought a Marlin 922M which is a .22 mag semi auto. I took it out and tried shooting it today. I shot one clip through it. When the clip is empty the action stays open. So I put a new clip in but now I can't figure out how to get the action to go back forward/closed. Can someone tell me what I need to do?? There is a little button/lever that slides back and forth on the left side of the gun. I assumed that's what I needed to move. So I did and that didn't do anything unless there is something else I need to do I am stumped.

    I looked on-line but didn't find out for sure. Looks like a blade lever in front of the trigger guard (like the model 60). If you push it back with your finger, the bolt should close.
    If not, then the experts will have to chime in.
    I hope this helps.
    That should be a sweet little rifle. :D Enjoy it.
    They aren't that common. Actually, I didn't know that they made a 22 mag semi-auto. Sounds like a keeper to me.
    And, Welcome to the forum!!!

    ya I think I got it figured out. I just tore the gun down and cleaned it up good. now it seems to be working correctly.
