half cock

  1. 1881 marlin half cock?

    Big-Bore Lever Guns
    Hello to all, Can anyone tell me if the early 1881 Marlins had a half cock safety built in? My 1881 (serial # 407) does not lock in at the half cock position and I don't know if it is supposed to. I asked my gunsmith and he said he didn't know. He will disassemble it and take a look but why...
