Hi folks,

I picked up a model 90 last year that finally saw the light of day this weekend, took it to the range to play around in some foggy skeet fields.

Had fun with it - however I found it has a really heavy front trigger, actually thought I had left the safety on for the first couple shots. I don't know if that is a usual symptom of this particular gun or just this one.

So - to my question - if interested in getting trigger work done on it, is this something most smiths would be able to handle without much issue or should I be tracking down someone who has a lot of experience with Marlins?

Appreciate any feedback or advice.
Rob

They are a pretty simple design. Any competent gunsmith should be able to do the job. IMO

I took mine down and cleaned the 70 years of gunked up grease form the springs and slides. Made a world of difference, and was easy peasy. Put some fairly heavy grease back on, or you may start piercing primers.
Seems the pins work too well, in the wore pin channels.
