  7. Model 81 (?) Bolt lubrication and other questions

    Hello everyone, I'm pretty sure what I have below is a Marlin Model 81, at least judging by what I've seen of photos on the web. My new Ruger GP100 .357 is just photo-bombing the post. :biggrin: I can remember shooting this rifle 45 years ago when I was 14 and haven't touched it since. I know...
