    GBL Converted to Take Down

    I just received my GBL back from being modified to a take down configuration. The work was performed by Master Gunsmith Lee Hadaway, The Arms Room, Trinidad, CO, Takedown Lever Actions. I got to meet him and he is as nice as the work he performs. He also GunKoted it, the color is Texas Tea. Additionally, he added he heavy front barrel band, did an action and trigger job, refinished the stocks, added the sights. The cost was very affordable and the wait, though seeming intolerable, was actually very short.

    I added the quick removal Leupold rings so that in the event of an emergency or heavy brush, I could remove the scope and not lose zero. Also, you have to do that to get her to unscrew ;-).

    Since this thread is useless without pictures, here they are (more in subsequent posts)!

    The aesthetics are what really caught my eye when I opened the case for the first time. The GunKote color and refinished stock are stunning, just stunning.

    I can't use terms glowing enough to comment on the excellent job Lee did on my GBL. The machining is perfect - down to the thousandth - you would never know this was a conversion. Blindfolded you would not realize you are pulling a Marlin trigger (Marlin owners know what I mean). The action is smoother than a mule's nose.

    Sounds like a neat project, I would like to see photos in the takedown configuration. I'm thinking of trying that one of these days but I'm planning to do the work myself.

    That is a good looking color! Put a Rhino Rail on there and that is getting pretty close to my dream gun.
