  1. Seeking advice on '93 restoration

    32-40 38-55/375 & Other Non Standard Caliber
    I tried this before last winter, but didn't get too far. Everybody wanted pics and we were rained out of the Piutes where my shop and the rifle are. So here we go again. I bought an early '93, SN 117598 a few years back in pretty rough shape. It had a bad headspace issue plus the stock had...
  2. 1978 Glenfield 60 - first 22lr and first restoration attempt. Please help!

    TEAM GLENFIELD
    Hello everyone, This is my 3rd gun and my very first 22lr. I got it at an amazing deal from Turners for $40 and I have to say, being in California and owning anything that's capable of more than 10 rounds (18. yessss) is somewhat dreamy for me and I am completely in love with this gun! I am...

    336
    Greetings fellow Marlin owners! I recently bought an old gold trigger JM stamped Marlin 3030 that is in rough shape. It has some minor pitting/rusting on the exterior of barrel, many aftermarket screws and bolts, and what appears to be a once cracked buttstock. I would like to restore this...

  6. Marlin 1891

    Marlin Collectors
    I have an 1891 Marlin, in 22 rim fire with a round barrel and side loading gate. The entire finish is in the white, with no evidence of ever being blued. I believe this rifle has been in my family for years. I inherited it from my father, who inherited it from his uncle in North Carolina. It's...
  7. Model 80 needs a little work

    Marlin Collectors
    I have a Model 80 that was given to me by my father many years ago. The rifle has been parked in my safe waiting for a little restoration work. The rifle is missing the trigger guard, front site and it has no magazines. I'm more interested in getting rifle back to shooting shape than doing a...
