I finally finished my project on my PC Correct Assualt/Survival Rifle.

Not exactly the way it came from the factory.

Laser on the left and Surefire on the right.

The rails are removable in case you don't want the extra weight.

Two interchangable compartments. The first holds 8 extra rounds while the second can hold a small "survival" kit. (or your cigarettes and lighter)
The stock is carbon fiber and I should get a chance to see how it shoots this weekend.

Thanks.

A company by the name of Wild Dog in Australia did it for me as a proto-type. They were interested in seeing if there would be any market for a lever action stock. Currently, they just do bolt guns.

Terrill,

That is one wicked looking Marlin. Congrats, I wish I was that clever. I am impressed to say the least. What ammo are you going to run through it?

Be careful about setting your carbine down while hunting. Could easily blend in and get lost because of all that camo.

I always thought a short barreled lever action 44mag would make a good home defense/ survial weapon without attracking the "evil" factor that an AR or AK does when you wind up in court for having used it. I like light/laser idea. I can see it now - a new marketing niche - the tactical lever action.

Telling me not to look is like tempting me with a WET PAINT sign. :lol: glad I looked. That is one very impressive Marlin. Now take to da hood and have some fun. :wink:

Easy, They are right around the corner from you. The reason the Gun Exchange carries their stocks is that they are in Brisbane. (So was I in October)http://www.wilddog.com.au
Bolt guns is all they are doing at the moment unless enough interest is shown on this proto-type.
I shot some of the new Leverevolution in it Sunday right before I put the stock on it. I was impressed with the ammo. Average of 2311 FPS and a standard deviation of only 16 fps. That's about 90 fps less than stated in their ads but still a 100 fps or so better than standard 150 gr. loads. It was consistant! Groups were about 1 1/2 inches for three shots but that was out of a brand new rifle. So I have recrowned the barrel to 11 degrees, added the stock, and will try it again this weekend.

Glad to see chronograph measurements for LEVERevolution. What length barrel is your rifle? Looks like 20 inch?

That is an outstanding looking rifle. Tell us more about how the recrowning went? Any tips or tricks to it? Did you use a kit? Nice work on that rifle.

Blackhawk,

E-mail me and I will be more than happy to send directions on how to do a great re-crown by hand.

Great job. Every time a company comes out with something new like this it is one more reason for producing our type of rifle, levergun. Besides it may create another place to buy used wood from those who don't want it after switching.

Looks like I got Terrill in deep $h!t with a phone call to Wild Dog. :mrgreen:

I said,
"G'day,I'd like a stock for my Marlin,just like Terrill's!".

Steve slowly answered with,
"Where did you see that???"

I said,
"On the internet,Terrill posted a picture." :lol:

LOL,he said to watch his website,in the next few weeks he may be doing a batch,seems like a lot of interest.Steve said he's been flatout,but hopes to do some for Marlins.

HTH


BTW Terrill,I know of Steve from his knife making days......small world.
