ALL MARLINS DESERVE A GOOD OWNER! Marlins are like pets. Care for them and treat them good and they won't let you down. Brian I hope you get it and make her better.Brian in FL said:Like I said before, if one can get this for the right price, it would be a challenge to restore this uncared for thing into a useful rifle. It's beat up Marlins like this one that cry out for help. I'm betting that all it needs is to have the stock refinished and to have her reblued. Besides, she's a .35 Remington. That has to count for something. In any event, I feel compelled to try to bring this Marlin back to life. I think she deserves that.
I never thought of that, but it just might be the way to go with this one. I don't have a .38-55 yet, and it's on my wish list. Thanks for mentioning it.Dave Bulla said:When you said rebarrel, the first idea to pop into my head was a 38-55 project...
