    Marlin 56 Levermatic update

    Well, I went by a local pawnshop...and I found the perfect $10 scope for it



    A vintage Ted Williams 4x (Sears) scope...and since my rifle is a Sears 46C (Marlin 56), it's a perfect match

    Listening to that "Little Voice" inside you quite often pays nice dividends

    Honestly, other than pillar-bedding, I can't think of another thing to do to it...
    A firearm should be a tool in the hands of a deadly weapon, not a deadly weapon in the hands of a tool.

    That's a given in this house

    Wifey's itching to go, but she's sick with an ear infection.
    As soon as she gets well, we're headed to the range

    Re: Marlin 57 Levermatic update

    Nice Rifle. That got me wanting a old .22 lever action. Maybe I can find a 39 mountie to match my 1894S.
    I got a couple of questions as I'm new and just tring to learn all I can about the different Marlin .22 rifles.
    What does the "C" stand for in Sears 46C ?
    I know you listed it as a Marlin 57, but isn't that a Marlin 56 ?
    I thought the 56 had a clip and the 57 has a tube magazine, Correct ? or do I have it bassackwards.

    You got it right Tommie.That is the second version 56 with the aluminum receiver,but it's still all Marlin to the bone.

    Great looking combo BS.I am a big fan of the levermatics in all their variations.

    I hit the 7 instead of the 6....fixed it...Thanks

    No idea what the C was for...Sears did some wierd things over the years...
