    Default Marlin XT-22 lr Trigger assembly loose

    I have this gun for a while.It shoots with a right ammo pretty good.
    Today i was target shooting and it started to fail to fire rounds.I thought it is the ammo-then it may be bolt issue(firing pin?Dry firing the gun ,it would make almost no noise........).
    Came home,cleaned the bolt(gunk maybe made the firing pin sticky?)Then i realized the bolt assembly came loose.It was wiggly in the trigger guard-side to side.Took of the stock,tightened the 2 bolts holding the assembly to the barrel,and voila-i was dry-fire testing the gun with the familiar click.

    Any opinions or experiences why this would happen?Would it come back. Should i Loctite the 2 bolts with removable Loctite?

    Thanx

    It sounds like the TRIGGER assembly was what came loose, and you re-tightened it to the receiver.
    Chances are the bolts were a bit loose right from the time you got them.
    A tiny bit of Loc-tite wouldn't hurt, but as you know, you need the Loc-Tite for small screws.
    There's almost no recoil in rimfire, so I wouldn't worry about it happening again.

    Dry firing a rimfire is not a real good idea.

    Thank You guys for the help,i took the gun out shooting after re tightening,and the gun shoots awesome.The bolt cycling feels a bit more "tight"but no issue whatsoever with not firing or else ..........

    X2. If you're dry-firing a rimfire for more than a couple shots, it's a good idea to insert a fired shell or snap cap in the chamber. Otherwise the firing pin whacks the sharp mouth of the chamber and can damage it.
