Marlin goose gun

Post by Kruser72 »

So I finally was able to pick up a marlin goose gun thus weekend....sort of. I need a few parts, the main thing is the bolt. My question is, the bolt are they specific to chambering(2 3/4" chamber can only use bolt from 2 3/4" gun) or do the bolts work in any chamber. It's is the 12 gauge, not the 10, but i would like to bring thus old girl back to life. Thanks for any help.

Kruser72;

A 12 gauge Model 55 was the basis for the Marlin Goose Gun, and a 12 gauge gun of this design is a 12 gauge gun, so any version of the Model 55 shotgun in 12 gauge, the breech bolt will work. You will need to have any headspace checked because of manufacturing tolerances.
Due to the increasing cost of ammunition, there will be no warning shot!
