    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)

    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...

    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.

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

    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!

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