    This is the reason I don't have identical model guns in different calibers.

    I had a similar problem with mine except it was the screws that held the lock in place on the rifle. While I had the rifle it became a normal thing to check those two screws. Not like I was shooting heavy loads either just a 330gr @ 1340 fps but I...

    A shop near me has one that I'm thinking about. Its a .30-30 nickle plated model with no sights or butt plate but it does have a cheapy old 4x tasco on it. The metal is in nice shape but the wood could use some tlc. They want 175.00 for it but iv'e...

    I just got a new in the box 1977 production 336 carbine in .30-30 but now I can't decide if I should turn it into a trapper with a 16" barrel or send it out to JES and have it turned into a .38-55. The preservationist in me says leave it alone but...

    Same here I also have a savage 219 in .30-30 it likes the lyman 311359 115gr spire point with 7.5grs of unique or the lyman 311008 flat point with the same charge. 25 yards is normally one ragged hole for 5 shots. If your not paying attention you...

    2152 & Tex we are on the same page. I wish I was tech savvy enough to post pics. I think its a factory boo boo as well but the shop that is selling it says parts only not a shooter because of the markings. I went back for another look yesterday with...

    I looked very hard at the tang trying to find any model number but there was nothing except the holes for the tang sight. The top of the receiver is not drilled & tapped but is marked Marlin Safety. I wish I had remembered to look at the serial...

    That is the weird part it's not a .22 rimfire it's in.32 Winchester special center fire. I didn't think to look at the serial number it could be a model 1936 action.

    Folks I just saw the craziest mariln I think its a 1893 action and everything else but someone put the barrel from a marlin model 81 .22 rifle on it. Even wilder than that the barrel has been rebored and chambered for what looks like .32 special....
