Wish this 336 Texan was mine but it's my brother's
Sweet little carbine
Here are a few..
Winchester 9422’s and a Browning Bl-22
Loads of fun just plink’n
Lest I forget from the back of the safe, had to dig it out, my 1957 Marlin 39A Mountie Carbine:
My brother lost the front sight hood, he had a bad habit of removing it and putting it in his pocket so I need to source another and a few other bits to get it back to 100%:
It has some honest wear (to the blue) that adds to the character but no rust, dents, scratches or such as that.
The original did have a loading gate but Marlin learned that handling the diminutive 22 Short was too difficult to get into an equally tiny gate. The tube loading was the best solution. But, once we are talking centerfire, I want a gate though for pistol calibers I could be flexible. I guess if you have near $4,000 the 39A is still available making it the longest produced firearm ever.
Yes, I have one. It's a .44 magnum Rossi 92, and I dearly love it. It started out as a 24" rifle, but had it modified into a defensive carbine. I had the heavy octagon barrel shortened to 17". The rear sight was removed and the dovetail filled. Above where it was,on the top flat of the barrel is a section of picatinny rail where sits a Sig Romeo 5 red dot sight, and a Thorntail mount with a Streamlight. A Steve's Gunz peep sight replaced the bolt safety, and I keep the key to the red dot under the leather ammo cuff, so I can take it off to use the irons if need be. Also, the nice looking, but very uncomfy curved metal buttplate was removed, and a recoil pad fitted. Steve's Gunz also provided the large loop lever, and it's now one of the most fun guns I own to shoot. The action is smooth as butter, and the only thing I don't like it that the loading gate has somewhat sharp edges, and it's not a take down. It is, however, fast, and accurate, so I'm happy enough not to mess with it the way it sits.
I also built a lever gun as a more useful defensive weapon...
Trey, What light mount are you using there?
I have two, both Marlin JMs purchased when Marlin was building them! An 1894S .44magnum and a .444Marlin.
Id like to get a JM .30-30 “just because”...
Id also like a JM 1894C in .357magnum.
It's integrated into the Dagger sight. It's a decent cheap optic that I have on a couple of guns.
As I own several lever action rifles, I find it hard to find a reliable list of serial numbers for Winchester Model 94 in 30-30. Can anyone direct me further?
Winchester94 in 30-30, Rossi92 in 45 Colt, Savage 99 in 250-3000. Looking at a Henry in .357.
I've shot them before, and I agree they are great fun. I've actually considered adding one to my collection for years, but I just never seem to get around to it.
Carried a Marlin Model 336C in 35 Remington for years in the NE. Now I have a Henry Big Boy in 44 magnum. Went with 44 magnum lever action because of all the other 44 magnums in my safe. I'm now looking for a 45-70 lever gun. Their in my blood. That old Marlin got me hooked.
what is the color of that wood? May be my eyes or it may be the photo, but I see it as pink. But the greens are funky too. Is it like a blond maple?
It's not wood; it's a desert tan textured finish...
Got it. I see it now. Good looking!
