Love the Marlin 55! Got one several years back from a buddy of mine. Said he couldn't take the recoil. I jumped at the chance to get that, even had the 2 round magazine.
Have to say it though...its one honker of a shotgun!
Nice work getting that shotty back to the field, well at least when your parts get in.
it was so rusty ! anyone else would of scraped it ! it is like a new gun now
thanks

This may be an for you to really learn trigger polishing.
I imagine it's pretty rusty, so simply take your time,
use a rust remover or ultrasonic cleaner to get the worst off,
then hand-polish all the trigger parts.
Even if it isn't perfect, it'll teach you things about Marlins,
and about practically every other trigger in the world :)

Or, if you are already competent in that, get a kid or grandkid
to assist in doing all that, since you have a trigger and spring coming in,
they can't jack it up too much...plus it'll be a memory they'll
keep forever, working on dad/grandad's shotgun!
You don't even have to tell 'em about the new parts ;)

Besides, it's always good to teach 'em to Bear Arms...
