    FOUND - 783 22WMR Tube Fed Marlin

    A couple years ago I sold my 25MN in pristine condition, three 7-round magazines, and a cheap but fine Simmons scope for $300.00 plus another $50 for the 12-round (rare) magazine I had. That was back when 22WMR ammo was crazy and I figured if I needed a small caliber with some power I'd get something like a Hornet, etc. I could reload for. I've missed it ever since so when I decided to replace it, I looked for a 783 specifically. Found one locally and brought it home yesterday. I've settled on a Vortex Crossfire II 2-7X32 Rimfire scope and Leupold Rifleman vertical split rings...putting the order in for those later today. I'm going to tear it apart for a deep clean, lube, and inspection and perform a trigger job while I'm at it (my 25MN broke at about 1 pound 8 ounces IIRC). After the wood is re-oiled and the OEM Marlin leather sling is redressed (I restore baseball mitts for a hobby), I'll take some pictures.

    What is your preferred method for the leather? I have a brand new leather belt that needs some conditioning.

    Looking forward to pics also. I’ve got a 1979 783 and absolutely love the wood on it. I almost feel bad when I take it out and shoot it, because I don’t want to scratch it up at all.

    Stock is cleaned and oiled waiting a couple days to buff. Trigger job done and blued parts cleaned and oiled. Scrubbed the spacer and plate and polished the brass butt plate screws. Cleaned and brushed the inner mag tube. Had to reblue the swivels. I only need to buff the stock, reassemble the last few bits, mount the scope (when it arrives), and treat the leather sling. I'll post more about that later when I get to it.

    Teasers until the scope arrives and the clean up is complete...
