    A few weeks ago, I found this Marlin 39M (1973) in a local gunshop for 150 euros. The mag tube was loose. I have fixed the loose mag tube and put on it a Skinner sight and a fiber optic front. The Marlin 39M is a handsome little rifle.

    Thinking about removing the scope and going to a Skinner peep sight. Any advice on options, I see there are also other sights available such as XS ghost ring sights? What is available out there and will I have to change my front sight post if I go with peep sights?

    This past month has been very good to me. It started when I purchased a Marlin 783 22mag with Marlin sling in excellent condition.

    It's been a long time coming. I picked up a used 1894CB 24" in 357 off of Gunbroker right before Thanksgiving this past year. I'd been looking for a while but was put off by the prices they were fetching, so I bided my time until I couldn't take it anymore and clicked "Buy it Now" when one...

    Hi, I'm still trying to find a better sighting solution for my Marlin Model 81TS. My eyes are no longer compatible with the OEM iron sights. I didn't get a response to: http://www.marlinowners.com/forum/rimfires/109780-model-81ts-scope.html#post1281574 so I'm guessing not many folks have tried...
