I have a problem. This week I bought a Winchester 94 Ranger Compact in 357 for my daughter. After toting this new rifle around all day marking landlines before a timbercutting, my Marlin 1894SS feels like a ponderous chunk. My 336CS 30/30 with Williams Peep feels like a clumsy chunk 'o' pulpwood. Handling my Marlin 444SS, is like shouldering a piece of field artillery. What can I do? I have always owned Marlins, but this little Ranger Compact is beauteeful!

If you like that, I've got a Henry Mini-Bolt; a kids stock on a Ruger 10-22; a kids stock on a Winchester 870 20 ga; cut down a Marlin semi -auto 22; and a Ruger Bear Cat - tiny little 22 single action - all for my girls.

But I've got a whole lot more for them to grow in to. . . . :p

Cut down a Marlin - or better yet, try an 1894p - short barrel.
