I pulled my still NIB 375 out today just to fondle a bit and thought y'all would appreciate the porn...she will soon be wearing an old Weaver K4 that is currently being refinished and repaired ..hoping to take her hog hunting along with the 35Rem SC ..health permitting

Here's to hoping health issues don't rear their ugly head...........I find shooting my 375 is quite therapeutic!

Your wood and mine are quite different, but they're both quite handsome. 8)

Beautiful firearm.....Just love those Marlin 375's.....My 1980 model is my go to gun for whitetails, mine sports a Bushnell Elite 3200 1.5 to 4.5x. Plenty of magnification for the deer hunting I do in PA. Shots are seldom over 100yds.

Nice looking 375 CalvinMD. Your stock looks like it is a smother finish than the one I have.

The shine is thanks to a light coat of Olde English..allowed to dry then buffed off with a flannel cloth..I do this to all the guns I get as well as sealing the open wood under the pad and forearm as well as in the receiver inletting with BC Truoil to prevent any water from soaking the wood during wet weather hunting ...I know, I know...I baby them too much, but they will all see the great outdoors the way they were meant to ,..for now its range time to find what shoots best ;D ;D

I have another 375 not nearly as handsome but still in great shape ..its my hard use field rifle..this one has been a safe queen but I do plan to shoot it in the very near future once the glass is mounted..I have a 4x Leupold in the safe if I get impatient that would love being paired with the 375

My gosh, you guys are getting me in a moment of weakness! I've been struggling to trim down my rifle collection, but now seeing your M375 beauties, you're making me get the "want" back!

CalvinMD, very nice Marlin, indeed, and best wishes that your health permits you to use the rifle this season.

Oh man Cal, I had to go back into my gun room and drag out my NIB Marlin 375 that I bought last spring and still have yet to fire. I have a passel of ammo all loaded up but I still haven't fired her. This spring for sure! We'll both get those pretty NIB's shooting like champs.

Now Tom, you just tell her that being an old virgin is nothing to be bragging about. You explain to her that she is as she is because someone loved her and she is a fortunate girl. The poor little waifs that Cal and I were lucky to find didn't have anyone to love them until we came along. They're ok now but life was not easy for them before... unloved...poor babies...

(man, I have issues)

Same here. I found my M-375 dusty and languishing in a nasty old gunshop rack, far back in a corner looking sad and neglected. I put it on layaway, and and was back to pay it off two days later. The day I picked it up, I found a box of brass, some Hornady bullets, and a set of dies. Two hours after I got it home we were headed to the range, and it did me proud. We've been deliriously happy ever since. ;)

You gotta like a great love story.


"Found each other in a small secluded shop and within two days got hooked up". Okay, there was some money involved but it's not like I rented her. ::)

Well my M375 was looking for some on to love her. She was with an older man in New York that didn’t hunt with her any to speak of and then went to California to be a flower child I guess. :mad: Well I found the man that had her and didn’t want her any more. She then became a UPS order bride to me in the Carolinas and it was love at first sight. She is on a regular diet of Ranch Dog’s 235 gr cast bullets and loves them. She also likes the 220-grain Hornady but I don’t want her to get used to a diet that is to rich for her. She makes regular trips to the range with me now. I know that she was not a virgin but someone had to shoot her. ;) ;D

Isn't it wonderful when you can restore their self respect, their dignity, and make them whole again?

(sigh)
