    Marlin XS7 trigger guard

    Has anyone got any idea we’re i might find a trigger guard for a marlin XS7 it seems real hard to find any because they have stopped manufacturing these firearms. Brownells says they have them but when I press order they say that they are now out of stock. Cheers guys any help would be much appreciated 👍🏿

    Hey mate, i had the same thing happen to mine a few years ago (was my first CF rifle) I found a part number online for a Rimfire one that fitted perfectly (it was an alloy one whereas the factory Marlin one is plastic) just had to drill one of the screw holes out a little larger.

    It was a good fix, and i still have the rifle, its a loner now.

    Ill see if i can find the part number, i know i got it via Sinclairs, which i think is Brownells.

    Does look very like a marlin 60 trigger guard. I'll bring my one up to compare if you want to check first? Good spotting @GWH

    I originally got onto the part number via a Marlin owners website after google searching the problem. When you pull the factory plastic one off and have a good look at it all, you will see how the factory plastic one splits when over tightened. Bit of a wee design fault, the alloy one basically fixes it.

    You can also take it to your local panel shop with plastic repair welder. They do a good job in minutes.

    It’s a bit of a stretch I think I actually got the screw tight as after I put a washer under it
