Well this is exactly why i fear the majority of internal mods. You can change one thing, polish too much, one little thing becomes crooked, just one tiny thing different and suddenly the whole gun doesnt work and then its difficult to trace and fix the exact problem.
im having that same issue right now with my Marlin 60. i disassembled it and i think something is misaligned or i accidently bent something because the hammer wont release after pressing the trigger. it was firing before and now i have to do more troubleshooting.
