I am looking for an outer magazine tube for a pump action Marlin/Glenfield 22 Model 29. Model 20, 20A, 20S, and 37 will word as well.
Here are some pictures of the gun. The end of the outer magazine is messed up so it won't pull the follower back to load shells.
could you cut the bad section, last 1/2 inch or so, out and then reshape it to fit?
Numrich's don't have one? I'd get a steel rod real close to size to put inside the tube and chase away the flair. Wooden mallet or maybe a cut 6 ounce torpedo fishing weight. I wonder if you can cut and slip a cut brass shell or a brass tube that's long enough to go over the flawed area? Hell I'd slip in a soda straw from 7/11? I'd bet a Slurpee straw will do the trick.
Thanks for the reply. If I cut it I'd have to add material back. The end of the outer tube has a little tab that grabs hold of the follower inside the inner tube. When you pull the outer tube out it pulls the follower and spring back so you can add ammo to the inner tube.
I wiah they had it. i have the part number from their diagram, but its been out of stock for years. No luck on ebay or anywhere else either.
I've thought about trying to get something close to the size to add to the end like you mentioned. The problem is getting a little indent or tab in it that will catch the follower on the inner mag. Here is a pic of a guy that tore one down and replaced it with a Winsner kit that he modified. But that part is out of stock also.
I have many mag tubes to sort thru
