this is to make good the claim that i haven't forgotten my "roots"! see, i DO have other rifles than the swiss :wink:
this was the sad 1893 project, it need TLC and a home, the barrel was from an old washington st gunsmith, the main parts from you~know~who, the wood from down texas way, and odds and ends from here and there!
the barrel is marked "smokeless" but with a chamber and slugged barrel of .380", will not shoot lead, well that is. i shoot a barnes or d.deering custom, and she will do 1-1/2"(with my new glasses on!). i someday will get a marlin front sight, but it's a nice picture w/what i have.
this rifle, although not original, feels so good against the shoulder! :wink:
so there! All the nay~sayers recant!!!!! i DO have marlins still! :wink:
(i just put swed and swiss rifles beside them to make them shoot better) [/img]
