4570 ported guide gun gotta reload them cuz of price
What you mistake as quaintness is good old fashion American. 2) I hate magazines.
I had a Marlin .35 Rem (GREAT cartridge) and like an idiot I sold it. Buy it, you will not regret it!
Oh great, another forum to spend countless hours lurking on!!
Didn’t see a classified section, whew! BTW, one of the guys at the shop grabbed the 336 I was interested in, I think now I’ll shift back to looking for a .357 lol
I like the Marlin Dark, .357 but they seem impossible to find.
I’ve got the marlin CSBL in .357 and it is a sweet shooter.
Everyone should own a .30/30.
Local forum has one for sale.
Might consider a M92 type action for revolver cartridges.
Hell yes, buy it!
Here’s the story of mine:
Last year, picked up my Dad’s 30-30 that he’d loaned to a friend for the last few years. It apparently rode around on a farm tractor sitting muzzle down, ensconced in a piece of PVC.
Now, it was no LNIB rifle before the farm duty, as it was Dad’s deer gun for many years when he ran the dogs in the swamp.
Since it has a lot of sentimental value to me (besides Dad’s use, I shot my first deer with it) I was interested in getting it back into some semblance of working order.
When I picked it up, I initially thought that the guy had cleaned it up pretty good, until I saw it up close. so, I tore it down fairly far, and started in on the outside of the barrel, magazine tube, and frame with 0000 steel wool. Everything was rusty, including the bore, inside of the mag tube, follower and spring, and most of what came out of the frame.
After a lot of scraping, brushing, and cussing, it was time to put everything back together. I lubed easily reached parts, and the outside, with Eezox, and used a standard CLP on the internals, thinking that the most they’d get down the road would likely be stuff sprayed in from the outside.
I never worked on one of the old Winchesters before, but I guess I managed to stumble through it OK, as it works, and there were no parts left over.
Dang. Got me looking at a lever gun in 41 mag. I already have reloading setup for that cartridge.
It's the gun I've wanted the longest but have yet to own. Don't be a dweeb like me and buy it!
My gun fund is building, mmmm Curly Maple......
Just got this older 22lr from my dads estate after over a year long wait. All it did was bake me realize how much I enjoy lever guns which is what has fueled my desire to get a 357 mag lever gun ASAP
I'll add another "go out and get one".
I love the ones I own.
Winchester 94 Classic in 30-30, Oct Barrel that is looooonnnnngggg. Very accurate.
Marlin 336 in .35 Remington (a heavy hitter)
Marlin 1894 in .44 Magnum, about as fun as a rifle can be.
Ithica M-49 single shot .22 I couldn't not buy it for I think $20.
They are all fun to shoot and they are an all American Design, what's not to like...
There was a time I was a freak about all my guns looking like new. I now look at the wear on my grandads and dads stuff and they are extra special because of it. Even the rust spots have character.
Nice job on the Winchester ,Rick.
To the OP: if anyone asks if they should buy a gun, whatever it is, the answer is yes. In this case it’s a double yes!
