Ok, so a friend and I went out shooting today and his marlin 336 seems to be double feeding and locking up the rifle. Ive cruised the internet for the last two hours and no other post (Google surfing) has givin a cause to this. Sounds like a common problem but every thread I look at pretty much gets left unanswered. Does anybody here have an advice on fixing this problem?

Anything would be much appreciated:banghead:

For Future reference I finally figured out what was going on. It was a bit strange but i fixed it. so when cycling the lever sometimes the rounds would stick in the magazine tube instead of being picked up at the proper time. and all it took was to tap it (at the range it took the round in the chamber to go off) and they came ramming forward past the stop point on the carrier and jam. All It took was swabbing a paper towel down the mag tube and a little oil and it seems to work great now.... I feel that I was looking for worst case scenario on that one.
