  1. The 450 Marlin®
    Hello folks, I just acquired a 2000 1895M. I've ordered replacement furniture for it, and have two questions. 1) Can the front forearm/furniture be removed without removal of the lever etc? 2) If so, how is the best way to remove the magazine? It is pretty stuck in place, and I the front...
  2. The 450 Marlin®
    I have read a many of articles on the JM proof mark and mostly all them talked about the JM mark that is within an oval. Is this the only way the JM mark appeared ?

  6. The 450 Marlin®
    Last weekend my BIL and I went to the Orlando gun show and he walked out with a Remington model 700BDL (stainless) 7MM Rem Mag. He was tickled pink. Well, we went to the range this morning and he setup and started shooting his new rifle. I had built it up so bad that he just knew he was gunna...
