A real life Mare's Leg! Never seen one of those before. I LIKE it...it's wrong, but in the GOOD way...

Oh, what're those markings on that 329PD? Is it a special edition or something?

You know what that Marlin really needs... what it's just screaming for?





...a bayonet lug...:evil:



I'm thinking a nice 10" spearpoint job on the end of that thing, for when you're out of ammo or the bear's chewing on your forearm already...

Also, you need a hardened steel cupped buttplate, for use as a skull-crushing pommel... when things REALLY get bad.

I'd buy one:D

Selling a lot of those up there? How's the 329PD hold up? How's it handle recoil, being so light? (Thinking with your basic .44 Mag loads; 240 grains @ 1100-1200fps)

Where did you get that Marlin?:what:

Wildalaska

Hi 329s sell faster than a bear can gobble a greenie :)

I dont think recoil is bad at all and I havent had any reports of them fouling up..Ive only shot them with 300 grain loads and they are no worse than a mountain gun....

Basic 240 grain loads are fine AS LONG AS THEY HAVE A GOOD CRIMP...

Built it in the back room...

Well, I'd be using factory stuff. More worried about carpal tunnel than damaging the gun, really.

If it was a problem, I'd slap some Pachmayr Decellerators on there, perhaps.

That is sweet.Do you have a website?Prices,calibers available?

Hi the one in the pic is spoken for by a SOT in WV...you can have your SOT dealer email at wwguns@ak.net for pricing...

Is that gun an AOW ? Or is barrel 16 and OAL 26" ect? Just wondering how it is sold?:)

That is soooo cool!

Out of 10, I give that: http://www.thehighroad.org/images/icons/icon14.gif x 9!

Note to mom: I want that for Christmas.

The barrel is about 11 inches so it is a SBR...

I really want one!

I just have no idea why???

Wild,
Call it a pistol for export, and I'll see if I cant move a few of them. :D

Everyone who has fired the 329 I have met does not want to do it a second time. I expect to see a lot of used 329's on dealer's shelves soon.

I bet that little carbine would be just the thing for a charging feral hog, too. I wonder if I can hide it on me in a shoulder holster as a CHL piece?

As always, very nice work, W.A.

Like the top gun - not so sure about the two-tone's looks, but it could grow on me.

Revolver for light travelling, carbine on the back for backup / more serious encounters.

Good stuff, Wildalaska!

Tell me, Wild ... how's it shoot?

Looks like a very, very swoopy setup. What's the capacity on the cut down marlin, anyhow?

Nightcrawler

For that Mare's Leg, you need a big leather crossdraw holster on your opposite hip. A big-loop lever'd be a nice touch, too. :D

Ok questions, questions....

Everyone who has fired the 329 I have met does not want to do it a second time. I expect to see a lot of used 329's on dealer's shelves soon.

Hi we cant even keep them in stock, and I have yet to see one come back....I am a recoil wimp, yet I can shoot the 300 grainers easily..

Now ya wanna see recoil, we do our cut down Ruger Wolverines now in 475 Linebaugh, wieghs the same as a Mountain Gun...they sting a little....but still shootable

What calibers can you do it in?

What caliber do ya want :)

Call it a pistol for export, and I'll see if I cant move a few of them.

Gimme an importer, and I got an exporter....:)

I bet that little carbine would be just the thing for a charging feral hog, too

Thats what the SOT whos buyin em says they are using them for....

Tell me, Wild ... how's it shoot?

So far..... an inch at 50 yards....

What's the capacity on the cut down marlin, anyhow?

I think its 6:confused:

A big-loop lever'd be a nice touch, too.

Soon my son, soon..

Wild...you mean the uber-powerful 300 grain .44 Mag loads like Cor-Bon and Buffalo Bore load??

From a 26 oz pistol?

YOWZA.

Wildalaska

Hi the 300 grainers that I have shot (and indeed which we reccomend) are the HSM 300 grain SPs....

Nightcrawler
October 31, 2003, 02:35 AM
What kind of velocity out of those and the 4" barrel?

And...what you're really saying is, if I break down and buy the Riboflavin .44 Mag someday, the regular .44 Mag loads (240 grains @ 1100-1200 feet per second) aren't going to break my wrists? :D

Wildalaska
October 31, 2003, 02:42 AM
Ya know I havent chronied any yet....probably more than enuf to poke a hole in whatever yer shooting at...:)

The 240s are real nice in the scandium gun...like I have said before the lightness makes it jump, instead of recoiling back in yer hand..

Interesting. I too, have heard from several different sources that recoil is :evil: I can't wait to try one out:D ( RE 329)
