  1. RED CENT: thanks for posting that pic. That is a beautiful rifle you got there. BUGLER: I hadn't noticed, but no doubt the 39 is a classic. I once owned the 39M and its probably one of my most 'I sure miss that little rifle' memorable little rifles, along with my High Standard Victor. ..........Widder
  2. TN, Your Golden Boy model has a Length of Pull at 14". The Evil Roy has a Length of Pull at 13"..... BUT, the Evil Roy also comes with the factory big loop lever. I think Slim's Evil Roy has the standard lever installed. Maybe he will chime in to verify. My Evil Roy has the standard lever and she is welcome to borrow it anytime. You can't..... but she can... I also have a lever wrap on mine..... and it is the gold standard of 'slick and smooth'. ..........Widder
  3. I understand. You've given it a good honest effort and hopefully sparked some new interest in the Marlin. There will be some who buy it for Cowboy shooting, but there will also be others who will now look serious at getting one for other reasons, such as hunting, etc..... The success of these latest Marlins also means continual availability of parts to ALL Marlin owners and for that, they should be grateful. Congratulations on your 'new arrival'......... .......and again, THANKS! ..........Widder
  4. Howdy Ranger. Honestly, I didn't post this topic to drum up work, although I do welcome folks that want to send me their Henry .22 rifles. But I was recently given on of these 'Silver Eagle' models, by one of our fellow Cowboys, to slick up and I think its one of the prettiest rifles there is. Even Slater (the trigger man) is being tempted to get one for himself. We've had some nice Henry rifles to work on before, but this particular model is really nice. If you get one, feel free to give me a shout. I've never owned the Browning .22 lever rifle, although they have a great reputation. But I have owned (and still own 1 of them) several Winchester 9422's..... and I can tell you without a doubt the modified Henry .22 is noticeably better, slicker and faster than the 9422. PLUS, it will have a shorter lever working throw. ..........Widder, The Bad Man!
  5. Its known as a Southern expression of something being smooth, slick, 'glass-slick'. Basically, the expression was originally..... "slicker than snot on a GLASS doorknob", because snot is slick, as is a glass doorknob. You are correct in that it ain't slick once its dried..... but once its dried, it's no longer snot....... it booger residue..... Other expressions that are credited to Southern phrases (true or not) are: 1. Colder than a Witch's TTTTT in a brass bra 2. Hotter than 2 rats in a wool sock 3. Fling a cravin on ya 4. knee high to a grasshopper 5. lower than whale poop 6. meaner than a junk yard dog etc................. ..........Widder
  6. TN, Henry has 2 different style stocks for their rimfire lever rifles. One is the 'Classic' style, which is the style shown above in the video by Smokestack. The other style is the 'Golden Boy' style, which is a style similar to the '66/73' style rifles. If your Youth style stock is of the same 'style', it is interchangeable. For more info, check out 'Henryusa.com' ..........Widder
  7. Smokestack, Who does the Harmonics tuning on your Bionics? ..........Widder
  8. Of the gunsmiths I have dealt with over the years, Cowboy smiths and others, have pretty much been within their expected time frames for the work I requested. BUT, as someone who has worked on Marlins and now Henry .22 rifles, one of the WORSE things a customer can tell a gunsmith is..... "Take your time. I'm in no hurry to get it back". If I get a Marlin with a 1-2 week expected turn around time and the owner tells me to ....."take my time because they aren't in a hurry to get it back", and at the same time I get 4 Henry .22 rifles (which take a day to set up), I'm gonna get those Henry rifles completed first, which means I won't even get started on the Marlin for about 5 days. Customers need to be cautious of their information to the gunsmith and hopefully, good communications will prevail with happy endings for everyone involved. ..........Widder
  9. DEUCE, I think its a very good thing you are doing by becoming a dealer for these new Marlins and especially being able to supply some competition ready rifles to customers who want the better springs, etc..... already in their rifles. Good on ya. ..........Widder
  10. "LIFE..... don't blink or you'll miss its fleeting moment". Another worthless quote from author......... ..........Widder
  11. The prosecuting lawyer will crucify you from your own words. YOU noticed these guys were different. YOU noticed details that most folks would never have noticed. YOU sensed something strange. YOU noticed they were not 'returning' anything to Customer Service......... yet you continued to stand there amongst them ready to show the world that you had a gun and knew how to use it. YOU were hoping they would make a move so you could waste them. The one whom you determined was 'ARAB' warranted your shooting with a 'Kill shot' but the other, who you thought looked like a favorite hollywood star, you only wounded. You killed one out of prejudice and wounded the other out of favoritism. And that would be the Prosecuting Lawyers neck tie for you. ..........Widder
  12. Climate Change is gonna kill us all in about 10 years and some are worried about truck horns and bikes... Allowing that huge truck to move ahead of you will help save his gas and therefore, less emissions to help keep our air cleaner..... although a disrespectful truck driver helps keep all the other vehicles on the road longer. And those cyclist are also doing their part to help us have maybe 12 more years on Earth before Climate Change kills us all........ even though the cyclist after effects are causing the cars to stay on the road 2-3 times longer because the cyclist won't move over..... Next time any of you encounter such stupidness on the roadways, just remember..... when we all go from either Climate Change or that big Asteroid, some of US will go at peace with ourselves, but others will go as Stupid A$$hollies! And thats about all I gotta say bout that. ..........Widder
  13. How many of you played the video that is included in the advertisement (Chief Rick's first post)? Did you recognize the lady in that video? No hints..... just check it out. ..........Widder
  14. Red Knee sez he's comin. Sez he's gonna whoop me this year. I say thats a bunch of doodly squat! ..........Widder
  15. Thanks for posting the pic, GOODY. Appreciate it. Howdy Capt. Yes, I work on these, and like the others, they can be short stroked also. Sending you a PM. ..........Widder
