    Finally got down to the Marlin thread. Have, had and will have more of these. Great guns in lever and in bolt action.

    A model 336 with the crossbolt safety in .35 Remington. It is in perfect condition. Got it in a swap a few months ago. Shoots great. Has a 3X9X32 on it. Bullet weight range in factory stuff I got with it was from 150 up to 200 gr. Great brush gun. Haven't killed anything with it yet.

    I have a really old Marlin 60. Nothing special about it. Very accurate. Good plinking/small game for up to 25 yards. Further than that, I have something special.

    The Marlin 60 is a classic rifle...

    Here's my model 99 m1, a hand-me-down from dad. It was a great squirrel gun for him and for me. Love it.

    The model 99 was the predecessor of the model 60. The m1 model has a little bit of conflicting information as to how many made, and when they were made, but it seems they were made from about 1965-1979 plus or minus a couple years.

    Nice one. I had a couple of 99s for years before I got hooked on the 10/22s One was the M1 and the other an M2.. One was a tube feed and the other a detachable mag model. Got a pic of one I had last year ago somewhere. Got it off an old man at a gunshow for 30 bucks. He said it fired, but didn't feed well. It was a tube feed model. Fuund the problem to be a damaged mag follower. Apparently the thing was made in 2 pieces and the inside one thaat made contat with the last round in the mag had broken through the plastic on the foller spring side. It had probably been overloaded to the point of breaking it and as the round count got tothe end, it would always hang up on the last round. Fixed that and turned it.

    Found one of the pics. Group picture actually. Center is the 99 with the mag tube ready to be repaired. Top is a Stevens Mod 43 youth model .22. It had detachable mag problems that just needded tweeking. And the bottom is a Stevens/Savage Mod 64 autoloader .22. Got it off a guy with no magazine. He said, "I just can't find one and I only used the gun once." That's a used mag I found at the same show that is with it. Didn't give over 40 bucks for any of them. All worked perfectly well and got about a C note more for each. All gone now. Welll if I don't, I will be swimming in .22s.

    Some more Marlins. Top to Bottom.

    Heavy Barrel stainless Varmint and poly Model 882 SSV with a 3X9X50. Got it froma buddy that needed cash. Looks accurate, but the next one is better. both are .22 magnums.

    Second one. It has a neame. i call it the "JAVENATOR." I have used this thing alot. Much easier to pack around than the heavy barrel jobs. Got a 4X Simmons on it. Several 7 round mags with .22 mag Winch Super X 40 gr. JHPs or CCI Maxi Mags. I have killed nearly 20 or more javelina in my yard and fields with this thing. Longest shot was @ 130 yds.

    Third one is a 917V in the 17 Hummer. Flat shooting 5/8" groups at 100 yds with CCI TNTs. Got the gun off a guy at a gunshow. He said the mag had a slight feed problem and he killed a coyote with it. He did not like the way it killed it. O.K.? I asked what was wrong with that? He said, "It didn't come out the other side." ?????? O.K. Scope and all for a bill was fine with me for his poorly performing rifle and scope. Tweeked the mag feed problem. All I ever did with it for 6 years was punch paper cause it was too preetty. Finally got tired of looking at it and turned it for three and a half. Never did fix the problem with the bullets exploding in animals cause I never shot anything with it. Have to get one that looks like the JAVENATOR. Something that shows little wear when we are out manding fences or cutting btrush.

    Last one down was another. "It don't feed right." problems. So its broke, like 70 bucks was o.k. with me. A kinda rare "Midget Magnum" Model 25 MN .22 mag takedown model. Came with a red/black zipper bag marked as above, smaller scope though. Mag tweek fixed it. Accuracy on this one was only fair at 1.5" MOA at 100 yds. Consider ing that you just take it apart and screw it back together when ya useit. that ain't bad. The F in law fell in love with it. Reminded him of his outlaw deer hunting days. I "loaned" it to him @12 ears ago. He is in the nuring home now. Guess I better go get it before one of my nephews claims it like they did with one of my boxed Russina SKSx.

    And the pic.

    My first Marlin was a Marlin/Glenfield model 60 man I loved that gun had a cheapo Tasco scope but could shoot the beak off a crow at a 100yds, somebody ripped it off along with several other firearms many years ago, now I have a Marlin 795 .22cal and a 1894 .44mag

    The military rifles I shot only had iron sights, but I put a BSA 4-16x40 scope on our semi-automatic Marlin 795. Its original black nylon stock was recently replaced with a stunning nutmeg-colored Boyds RVT laminated birch stock so I could get a decent cheek weld, and I added a folding UTG bipod for Varmint Shoot competitions. We also have a removable nylon sling (not shown) for Appleseed events.

    The only changes I plan are to add a custom magazine release lever to the stock one (to get more leverage) and to swap out the combat-style bipod for one a little more elegant (hidden springs, perhaps).
