The RPP Flyweight Loading Gate greatly reduces the effort required to stoke your Marlin. It's a masterfully tuned, competition grade part right out of the gate. SASS approved.
Starting with a massive reduction in spring weight, the RPP gate requires only about 1.5 lbs. of force to open fully, while the factory loading gate can require in excess of 5 lbs.
Next, we redesigned the loading gate to offer substantially more clearance for cartridges, further reducing load effort. This is a significant benefit when loading fat, straight wall ammo like the Marlin 444. In fact, during testing we discovered that we could load a .444 dummy through the gate of a typical Marlin 336 .30-30, without benefit of the Model 444's magazine tube clearance bulge. That's first class leg room!
Finally, we paid very careful attention to the inside "feed lip" area of the gate, optimizing geometry to ease gate opening against an on-deck round, and offer smooth feeding, with perfect case head control. With every gate precisely CNC machined from solid bar stock and hand polished, consistent results are assured.
Material is 7057-T6 aluminum, the strongest grade available. Engineered for highly stressed air frames, 7057 has extraordinary fatigue strength for thousands of flex cycles without failure. When anodized, it has a surface hardness exceeding hardened steel, for excellent wear properties.

A couple of good screwdrivers is all that's needed.
The gun will need to be partially disassembled - just go slo, and remember that each screw needs to return to it's original home, so get a piece of cardboard box, draw an approximation of the receiver on it, and poke a hole in your drawing where each screw can rest until reassembly.
1) Clear the rifle & ensure the chamber and magazine are EMPTY.
2) Unscrew/remove the tang screw from the upper/rear receiver tang, and pull off the buttstock to the rear.
3) Partially open bolt/lever, remove lever pivot screw and slide lever out of the bottom of the receiver (no need to remove bolt)
4) De-cock the hammer with the safety disengaged. Push forward on the hammer spring bridge and pull or push out one side of its groove. This will free the hammer spring
5) Remove hammer pivot screw, bottom trigger plate screw and side support screws to free the trigger plate from the receiver.
6) Remove the trigger plate / lower tang from the bottom of the receiver (some gentle prying may be needed).
7) Pull the locking lug out of the bottom of the receiver and swing the carrier out of the receiver (no need to remove the carrier pivot screw)
8) Unscrew the loading gate spring (1” behind he loading gate opening) and install the new gate and screw it in
Reassemble in reverse order.

Loading gate is way better. I’ll admit I was skeptical while installing it. However once back together loading those 357’s are how I always imagined it should feel. Smooth & easy . So much better than stock. If I had to do it again, I would in a heartbeat.
Easy install, only took a few minutes, now loading and unloading my 1895GBl is easy as can be and no more sore thumb from the original Marlin load gate.
Very easy install. Didn't take but a few minutes. Highly satisfied.
Great product. I can’t believe it took me so long to swap out the factory ramp. This simple part completely changes the shooting experience.
10 minute install and everything it was promised to be. Makes a huge difference loading the rifle easily.
Man did this change how easy it is to load my 444P. No more caught nail or lost skin. Wish I'd of found this years ago.
My old gate spring kept working loose even with medium strength locktite on the threads, so time for a new one (the 45 year old screw was still like new so it was not the culprit). The Ranger Point part did not cost much more than new ones from Remlin, so I went this route and am very glad I did. Like everyone else says in reviews here, makes loading much easier.
The new loading gate is just a must have upgrade. Sick of jamming round after round into the tube...... yeah this seriously reduces the effort making reloading easier and faster and just simply more enjoyable. Very easy to install, just don’t over tighten the single screw. Went with the gold on my SS 336 and it looks awesome
This loading gate is a must for any Marlin owner. I put one on my 1895G and two things happened. 1) Loading of the magazine tube became much easier and 2) I stopped getting marlin gate bite loading the magazine tube. Add in that you can unload an 1895 via the gate makes it that much better.
