I was checking several guns over with my bore lite last night and when I got to that Waffle-Top from last week, I thought I was seeing things. Checked with a total of three different bore lite's, and it only has four lands and grooves. The grooves are twice as wide as the lands. Gun was made in 1948 and is a 32 Special. Barrel has all the normal stamping's from Marlin. Was this something they tried back then, special or normal? Any information is appreciated, thank's, Tommy

I had to check my 49 30-30 after you posted this, never really noticed but yep, has that same set up. For some reason I thought they had 7. I dont have a bore light though, I bet thats a nice tool to have if your in the market and checking out guns.

I was going to say the switch to MicroGroove was late '54/55?, but the old school Ballard rifling was all day every day in '48, and yes they tend to shoot VERY well.
