I originally wanted a GBL but with all the problems with the new ones I decided to find a Guide Gun. I found a NIB 94XXX serial # on Gunbroker and bought it back on 2-19 only problem was the USPS lost my Money order for over two weeks in the Mail. Took over two weeks to get from FL to OK,all they could say was we're sorry but it should get there. Well after almost a month of worry I finally got my rifle ;D I got it all cleaned up and hope to take it to the range tomorrow and see if I can hit anything with the open sights if time permits.With my eyes I will need to put a scope on it just can't see open sights like I once could.Now I'm thinking 444 or 35 Rem. Marlinitus is a pain :)

You'll find that the Remington 405 gr. ammo is easy on the shoulder, I personally found it disappointing as I was expecting to be put back a step or two! As I come to realize the 405's are a nice tolerable round, I hope you reload as this could get spendy! Congrats and Welcome to the fun. ;) Mr fixit

I do reload I have a box of Leverevolution just to try out but will try to work up some loads as I get the time.I've been working on loads for a 300RUM for the last two years I hope this thing is a little more tolerable than it was.

Made a short trip to the range today and ran a few rounds through it and the first 5 rounds were grouped a little less than 2 inches at 50 yards with open sights and with my eyes thats good.Once I get a scope on this thing I think I'm going to have a new favorite brush gun. :)

JW,
What ammo did you use on that first trip out?
I used Hornady Leverevolution 325gr. and can't wait to see what they do when I get a scope on this thing!
