    I think it was made in 99. That's what the serial number starts with.

    Yes, but that Big Loop is for the pistol grip stock. The one for the straight stock would not have that hideous gap.

    Ugh. Someone will get a few years in Purgatory for that one.

    I agree with you, I don't think it's going to be pleasant to shoot but for alpine or extended hunts out here might be good for hunting and brown bear defense.

    Yeah, not fun to shoot is an understatement. But for low volume stuff, sure. How about a red dot?

    Yes. That's the direction I'm headed with it. I wondered how I'd mess with a scope with the hammer especially with no safety. a shake awake Red dot and sighted in for 100 yards though to be honest, it's more like 50 or less for how hunting is up here in southeast. Not very long shots up here at all.

    I put a red dot on my buckmark and never had one before. I like it really well. If I ever think my vision is causing issues with the peep on my Rossi lever I will be slapping a red dot on it.

    If your rifle porting and markings look like this:

    It is an earlier model that used to look like this:

    DB44F99B-81F9-4112-8A2D-34D4F606F0FC.jpeg

    Different strokes for different folks...but personally, I kinda prefer the traditional look on my levers. :)

    Let us know how it shoots for you :thumbup:.

    Stay safe.

    How much do these go for? looking at the accessories...someone spent a fair amount of cash just on them.

    1895 sbls and other guide versions seem to be bringing in a decent amount on GB. I had a GBL that I sold to a friend because he just liked it. Now I just want to get another one. I like to tinker, so one like that would be right up my alley!

    Having lived and hunted in SE AK myself, it looks fairly practical for the conditions you're likely to encounter there.

    I have a fleet of JM rifles, thank you, I do enjoy my Remington produced Marlin and will continue to do so. The Ruger will not be a "real" Marlin either. Maybe they will be better than a real Marlin. Here is one of my JMs, a Texan, on the bench getting some TLC and a few RPP bits. I do not think I will add the alloy fore stock to this one. Function does have it's place and I am sorta liking on the OPs new rifle upon second look.

    I'm reporting this post for violating community standards :p I can never unsee that and it's somewhat traumatizing :uhoh:

    It will be great once you undo what was done.

    I just transfer a basic Magpul QD from my AR. No idea on the model number but its cheap and effective.

    Can't assume it works that way. You could google it. Does it have JM stamped on it? I believe the Marlins did.
    I don't care who owns the company, as long as it is American. Most guns companies have been bought and sold many times over the year. Sure I wisht there was stability. But Ruger is not a fly by night company. It does not compete with their other lines, so may be good.

    99 means 2001.

    Also means it’s a JM and is very likely factory ported.

    Tough to see the barrel markings with that forend on it. As long as it shoots straight I don't care what it is!

    I'm still reticent to shoot it without hearing protection with those factory ports. From my research they do appear factory and my rifle we built sometime around 99-01.

    This is the perfect rifle to take out and about in Alaska or on the boat and not be afraid for it to get a little scuffed up. A rifle that's Actually used without me hating myself for scratching or dinging it up is my favorite type of rifle!

    These Guide Guns can be a lot of fun to shoot, or absolutely miserable, depending on the load you choose. Stout loads are just that, on both ends of the rifle. “Trapdoor” level loads are, literally, a blast to shoot. :)

    As for the porting, you should be hesitant to shoot anything without hearing protection. I failed to recognize this as a teenager and young adult, so the alarm bells that began ringing constantly in my head became really noticeable about 15 years ago in my late 30’s. It reminds me of my earlier years of no-ears shooting and hunting every day... and especially every night as I go to bed. :(

    Protect what hearing you were given! Like your eyes, you only get one chance to keep them working for the rest of your life. :thumbup:

    Stay safe.

    Often i go out hunting with howard leight electronic muffs. I get a lot of **** from my buddies but i dont hear any ringing in my ears or noticeable hearing loss. while out hiking or doing other stuff where i dont anticipate shooting but im still carrying i wont walk around with muffs on and thats what weirds me out. I need to just get over it and suppress something. Maybe someday.
