In a different thread I mentioned my diffugalties in getting registered with gunbroker. Then about 4 days ago I tried to sign on and it worked. Until today... Now my account is under manual review. again.


And I finally got it done. Not gunbroker, but the marlin 1894. It's a 1979 manufacture .357, and it came via a good guy from the Campfire who responded to my classified plea.

Just picked it up today as I'd been out of state visiting family in Kansas. Took it out back a while ago and it put 5 into a piece of cardboard with a 3" magic marker circle on it. 4 of 5 in the circle offhand at 50 feet mad me happy.

Gonna spend some serious time with this one.

I like the Marlins, have a few, 44 mag, 30-30, 35 Rem, 45-70. All JM earlier guns. But.............
Love the Winchester and the clones. Nothing carries like a 92, 94, 86 or 71, nothing, love them. But I'm going to scope the Marlin 30-30 with a 2 x 7 Leupold and the 35 Rem with a 1 x 4. peep of some kind on the 44 and 45-70.
Have a Rossi 44 with a 16" barrel and a 357 Stainless 20" barrel. Both nice out of the box, will be doing the Steve's Gunz upgrades this winter.
What I need is a 94 in 38-55 or one I can send to JES for a re-bore.

The best deal, often the case; get your gun directly from Steve. He packages the price of the new gun with his work and you save time and postage back and forth.

Just a thought.

Try reading this by Jim Taylor. I supplied some of the bullets for the test.
