Marlin 5512ga Goose gun

Post by Bruised1 » Thu Apr 13, 2017 4:53 pm

I have recently obtained a Marlin 55 12Ga Goose gun from my father which has been sitting around various places in his home and garage collecting dust for a long time. I have a couple of questions about this gun that I hope someone can help me with. First of all, I attempted to shoot it several times yesterday however after only a couple of rounds through it it would no longer fire. It appears that the firing pin is held up and or just not hitting hard enough to engage the round. Any advice as to how to disassemble the bolt for proper cleaning would be greatly appreciated. Secondly, I recall from my youth of "stories" of how accurate this gun was using slugs. The question I have is can I safely use it to shoot the slugs. Thank you for any help or advice you can provide.
