Just picked up my new Marlin 1894 357 magnum Friday afternoon. I took it out for a trial run Saturday. After a couple of mags full of fun, I had a problem. The orange magazine follower had moved back over the shell carrier causing the gun to jam. I could push the follower back up in the tube where it was supposed to stop and it would stay there for a while but again it would move past it's stopping point causing the gun to jam. Is this the DREADED MARLIN JAM? Of all the Marlins I have owned this is the first problem I have had. I have ordered one of the metal magazine followers and a new spring from Brownells. I figured I would see if this fixed the problem before I boxed the gun up for Marlin to repair. Thanks for any helpful info.
