    What do you say about the Marlin 7000T

    Well, looks like I can't stop adding to the .22 inventory. Couldn't pass up a good deal on a 7000T, picking it up next week.
    Found some info on the web about this somewhat coveted Marlin but would like to know the ins & outs, do's & dont's, tips and experiences of actual users of this fine piece of Marlin history.

    I've never owned a 'match chamber/barrel' rifle so any advice there (ammo, cleaning, etc.) is greatly appreciated too.

    Another question-- are there drop in stocks out there so I can take it out to the squirrel woods without looking like Uncle Sam?

    You guys are the ones to ask

    'Das a FINE piece of machinery ya gots there !!! I've never seen one of those rigs either. I wonder if it'd fit into a model 795 stock with some hogging out of the barrel channel for that bull barrel ? I'll be watchin' to see what others have to say on it. Congrats on that find !

    Danged "9" key keeps stickin' on me !!! Meant that as 795, not 75.

    Easy, Boyd's makes model 60 stocks that you can mod for the 7000, have to cut out the mag well & sand out the barrel channel to fit the larger 7000 barrel.

    How much do ya want for the R/W/B stock?? Send me a PM
    I also have a spare Ramline folder lying about...LOL

    I've been drooling over those 7000T stocks since I found out about 'em!!

    Re: What do you say about the Marlin 7000T

    There - I found somebody else who has one.

    Buy the synthetic stock from Marlin for a model 7000. From what I have been able to find out, the difference between the 7000 and the 'T' model is only the stock.

    I bought mine new in 2004. It shoots everything great, but prefers 40 grain non plated solids.

    Every 3-4k rounds you will need to detail clean the action.

    It's a bit of a pain in the butt......................once you wrangle her out of the stock, remove the trigger group and take the bolt and everything out.
    Scrub everything out really good, put a light coat of oil on everything and go shoot more!

    Usually, just wiping off the crown and the bolt face/ejector after each session is enough.

    You should just hunt with the Red, White & Blue.............................that way the Patriotic squirrels will stand and salute so you have time to get a good bead on them.
