  1. How sure are you that the wood on this Marlin 39 has not been refinished?

      I'm interested somewhat, but factory originality is important to me as a collector.  Many of these guns in the 50's have been refinished....some very professional.  What is your bottom dollar?

      My bottom is $2800. 

  2. Wolfy hadn't responded to my messages or replies recently. I guess he doen't check this forum very often. Anyone knows him? ...Too Tall...
  3. Where can I buy a temperture control device to use on my Magna Lube/Sizer?  I can't seem to regulate the temperature fine enough to work properly.  When the heat begins to cool a little, I have to wait for the heater to kick on again to start lubing.

      General distrust of polymer coated bullets, which is why I've not shot them.  I cannot believe it's faster or cheaper to poly coat.    I have seen some tests showing accuracy is less.    So, I'm not a good feller to ask about poly coating if you are trying to convince yourself to try it.


      A magma luber is as fast as cheap lubing can get.  I lube faster than I cast.  And poly coated bullets usually still have to be sized.


      But some folks must like poly coating.


      (I have too many lube groove molds to even think about poly coat, too)   GJ

      Thanks for your opinions which I highly regard!  I, too, dislike poly coated bullets and would rather not make them.  I think my problem might be solved with some type of PID controller as I get frustated when the temperture comes on and then off on those Magna lube/sizers.  I need constant temperture.

      The commercial lubes seem to want a narrow temp range for best application.   The Star/Magma lubrisizers (and Lyman and RCBS too) were designed back in the 40's when Alox 50/50 soft lube was the main lube, and I think that is why originally they did not even HAVE a heater in them.  I probably have less difficulty because I make a home-made lube with wheel bearing grease and beeswax and Ivory soap.   It's a little sticky (I wouldn't ship lubed bullets), but it sure shoots well at pistol speeds and it's fairly cheap, especially if you know a bee keeper.


      Good luck, GJ 

  4. Too Tall, 

    Get me your contact information, and I will get you a MO in the mail...




  5. Can you possible send some pictures?  Is this the only one you have?  What work have you done to it?

  6. Like new marbles tang peep sight (#009830) for the current Japan made Winchester 1885 low wall 22lr. Includes 2 peeps, mounting screws, and original box. $98 plus $6 shipping.
  7. I have a 22 High Standard derringer that can be shot either double action or single action. Would this be legal in a match if only the single action mode was used? …Too Tall...
