Nice looking fence.


Don't ask me about my military service or heroic acts...most of it is untrue.

I just scored a "like new", JM stamped guide gun in 45-70. The guy I'm getting it from said less than a box was fired. Blued/walnut. Too beautiful to pass up, but I really wanted stainless and laminate! Lol

It will be here this Monday.

Add a GS and SBL and you're approaching half way done.

As Shawlerbrook said, it's still a crapshoot. When looking a Remlin over, it would be best to actually cycle snapcaps or live ammo with the safety engaged to make sure the riffle loads and ejects properly. I have two Remlins - a 45-70 made in 2015 and a 444 made in 2011. I bought them because they were crazy cheap. Both had serious feed issues. I had Ranger Point Precision tune them both fixing the feed issues, smoothing the action and lightening the trigger pull to a crisp 3 lbs. When all was done, I had as much invested in each as they were priced retail but, they are much nicer rifles than you'll find at the gun store.I have six other Marlin 444s that are JMs. They don't need any work. They came as smooth, accurate rifles from the factory. Here is my Remlin 444. It was assembled from parts brought over from the old factory. The wood, in particular, is of very nicely figured walnut with cut checkering. This rifle has ballard rifling and is very accurate. T.S.

I bought this 1895 Dark about a month ago. Finally got to shoot it and you could hardly extract the fired cases. Examination revealed chatter marks ( I guess)
It will be going back to Marlin for a new barrel.
