Nice picture but you might want to think about adding a caliber to fill the gap between those two!

Welcome to the forum chris.

Nice Chris, I just wish the one on the left had the recoil of the one on the right.

Well now I know why Marlin lever guns feel so natural to me.
When I was 5 years old I got my first BB gun just like the one in the post next to the guide gun. My grandmother lived outside of town and I would spend every weekend out there shooting that Daisy from sunup to sundown. Eventually I would run out of ammo (BB's) and then would get on my hands and knees and crawl around in the flower beds picking up shot ammo.
Come to think of it maybe that is why I am a "reloader" today.

Two beautiful american classics. Of course you need every caliber inbetween. In a marlin.. Let's see.. 22,22 mag, 357, 41 mag, 44 mag, 30-30, 32 sp, 35 rem, 444, and a 450 just for good measure.. And I forgot al the hyphenated calibers! :marchmellow:

I love those "Red Ryders". Still have a couple. They first came out in 1938. From that date on, I'll bet there more of those made than Marlin lever guns.

Thanks all. I cut my teeth on the Red Ryder as a young lad and ever since I found Elmer Keith many years ago I had to have a 45-70 and my Great Grandfathers old trapdoor was not enough so the Marlin filled the gap. Chris S

Two classics that belong together. Between those two rifles you can solve an amazing number of problems!
