Good advice Damcowboy
I am looking at maybe finding a good used CB and going from there
Hey again Ssgt Hill -- Don't underestimate some of these old guns and old calibers. Here is my 104 year old 1894 Marlin in 32-20 slaying dingers at 500 yards. Wet Dog gets his newer Cowboy Carbine in the act as well. A new Cowboy is a good idea for sure. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iUGeOJ8evpY And I'll toss in a picture of the rifle as well. Hope this helps. Best regards. Wind
Thanks for the photo...That is a beautiful rifle....I know it may take some time....But, I have a new mission and a few new friends here that seem to have a similar idea....So all we can do is keep a watchful eye, and see if we can make them come true.
I think ikesdad is looking for a half Octagon and a half round so we are getting a group started....lol
I think the biggest thing is going to be the barrel and the action fitted together.. Once that happens, it will be coming together nicely...I love to debate the older rifles and see what folks think about the capabilities of them, and more often than not, it is surprising what they can do.
Hey again Ssgt Hill -- JBledsoe ordered a Zane Grey barrel from Numrich the last time he was here shooting. You might check with him about that project. He sent me a range report today and the thing shoots great. Again, there is nothing wrong with the pre-Remlin Marlins. Best regards. Wind
Is that to say Marlin will not provide replacement barrels? Im new to this conversation and am in need of a replacement as mine has a swollen chamber. Am I wasting time to contact Marlin? Or are they an expensive way to go?
