My name is Bar7mag and I am addicted to Marlins. I have been collecting marlins now for almost two years. Since I started I have bought or traded for 3 different 1894c rifles. I have owned 5 or so 1894s in 44 mag. I sent condition 1 an offer to trade one of my 1894cs for that stainless 1894 if he wanted it. He decided to pass since he really wants a stainless 1894c. He did give me the contact info for the store and the 1894ss should be on It's way to Bama soon. That was an awesome gesture from a stranger that I now consider a friend. We had a great conversation on the phone. The part I didn't tell him was that I am the dad of 3 young sons. I am collecting for them now. I have all the guns I could ever need but I want something special for each of them. I bought the 6 year old a Browning BAR in 7 mag when he was a baby and GW Bush stimulated the economy that time I stimulated my local gun stores economy. I have decided to leave the 1894ss unfired and put it up for my 4 year old son. I think that will be an awesome suprise one day when he is old enough and wise enough to appreciate it. Now I guess I will have to be on the hunt for something to stick back for the 3 year old unless I decide to give him an 1894c. Again much thanks to condition 1 for his generous gesture!

Salute to Condition 1, even if he is one of them Yankees..... :)


BAR7MAG: take that rifle out and shoot it. What better memory for your son to KNOW that his rifle was once used alittle by his dad. Sometimes, its not the item that makes the connection but THE MEMORY that makes our heart thump in our chest everytime we have a chance to show that rifle to a friend or brag about the memory it brings because 'DAD' shot it.

PLUS, you'll be making sure it works well and has all the gremlins out of it before Junior puts it to his shoulder.

Widder,

Boy!...........Them thar are Fightin' words, Widder!...........You better grab your fastest Coffee cup, and meet me in the street in front of Starbucks at high noon!...........LOL!

I think BAR7MAG should add to the historical provanance of the at rifle and tell his young son......."This here rifle was onced owned by a Yankee".......LOL!

Gee, If we restart that Yankee/Rebel thing, RB Rider is gonna rise up down there in Winston-Salem NC, an start lobbin' Pecans at the northern States......LOL!

Condition1, That was a nice thing you did in helping another shooter aquire a Marlin..............

I can't say that myself :) but this place is loaded with great people. This is the only place where I do gun deals with zero worries. Mods have the tough job of maintaining these high standards.

Mr fixit I knew you'd be watching lol. I always said "time outs" don't work like a good butt whooping but I must admit my vacation "timeout" was worse than a whooping. :)
