1972 1895 "Trapper"

Here is a little project i am working on. I picked up this first year production (1972) B0 prefix Marlin 1895 (New Model) from a local guy. It was advertised as a factory special order 1895 "Trapper" ??? with a 16.25" Barrel. There is no documentation of this fact, but it was priced right and in reasonable condition for its 40 year age. I doubt the claim of it being a factory special order but i still like it... The Barrel was cut but not really crowned, the sight was relocated properly. I have ordered the tools to do the crown. But in the mean time i have cleaned it up, touched up the bluing and installed a WWG big loop lever. I also replaced all the buggered up screws and added a forend cap with a sling swivel.

Say that is a nice little cannon you got yourself there! Pretty nice wood to be taking out on a trap line, but still I think you done good! ;) Welcome to the group!
