Hi there, I just joined a couple of weeks ago and just bought my first Marlin. I want to thank all the participants for all the wisdom, honesty and tolerance. You all have given me the confidence to know what I want, and go get it. Thanks to all of your input I chose a JM Marlin, and got it in the Stainless and barrel length I wanted.

I have RCBS Cowboy dies and other bits coming and I am looking at Red dot vs traditional scope throughout the forums. The instructional series by Stucky is brilliant. Thank you so much for the DIY material, "more, more, I'm still not satisfied."

I have been a casual shooter all my life, mostly as a way to enjoy time with my dad. Now that he has passed, I'm looking On to go pig hunting. And prepping!

Once again, thanks. You guy are great.
Steve

Welcome aboard! I have to agree about stainless and the 45-70 which is hands down my favorite cartridge.

I have the 35 Rem and 444 Marlin versions of the XLR--they are very accurate rifles. I am sure yours will be as well.
