My wife and I are thinking on getting our son , almost 12 years old, a reasonable priced firearm in April for his birthday. We mostly small game hunt,squirrels and bunnies,(although none have been harmed to date) and plink at the local range.

Thanks for the info. I know hes good at shooting the old bolt action I have. The only marlin I have shot is my old 81-dl and has a light smooth trigger pull. Do all marlins have such a nice pull? I have a Ruger 10-22 and it's trigger pull is a bit stronger. With the 10-22 my son pulls his shots to the right.... but dead on with the 81-dl

Well, for Christmas my son inherited his grandpas Marlin 89C . He's quit excited. The only problem is, the shell won't load into the chamber. It looks like the bolt does not slide back all the way when pulling it back.
It disassembles quite easy. And gave it a good cleaning. Inside the bolt,where the spring inserts,there is a rod that looks slightly bent. Could that be why it's not coming all the way back?
