Check with Brownell's. Catalog #61 pg 113 shows Marlin rimfire triggers for 900 series and pre-900 rifles. $81.95, but might be worth it.

Good luck, Tom

Re: Marlin 925M .22WMR Sniper Rifle!

i have a savage 93 scope combo and i can depending on the bullet shoot out to 300 yds holding a real tight maybe 4-5 in with about a foot of hold over. thats as far as ive shot my mag cuz thats the futhest distance i can go at my home range i find the 40 gr rounds go further, and at that distance depending on the conditions that wieght is probably your best bet the lighter 33 gr bullets have a flat laser trajectory but get blown about past about 200yds. i feel that the 22 wmr could go out further but anything past 300 you should use a 45 gr bullet just because of the fact that it will put a bit more hurt on the target. read the section on the savage 93 report i posted cool info there too. i had my rifle sighted in at 50 yds for a bit. According to the ballsitic calculator the round should drop about 6 in at 100 yd, my results were no drop at 100 maybe 1 in at 150 3in at 200 yds then about 6-8 in at 250 and finally a foot at 300 yds, so when someone says the 22 wmr drops like a rock after 100 yds my results
using fiocchi jsp 40 grain bullets at 200 yds it starts to drop pretty quickly so to kill something id say 250-300 yds max depending on the round and the critter

I have a marlin 925m with a 4-16X50mm custom scope. It will drop yotes with a decent head shot right round the ear at about 300 meters with cci maxi-mags. Any further the round just doesn't quite have the power. However, up to about 210 meters a good lung shot will work every time using any ammo. If you use the cci rounds it will clean through a 35 to 40 pounder. Bobcats and smaller game with ease up to 400m. Good luck to Yall

I had one of the older Marlin 22 mags with a very poor trigger. Took it to my gun smith and he reworked it and made it quite good. I think it started at about 8 pounds and he got it to about 2# with little to no creep and very crisp.
