  1. Sounds like you deserve a 'Congratulations'. As you probably already know, sometimes its only 1 or 2 little Gremlins that need to be smoothed out to give you that 'real nice' rifle you've worked so hard on. Good job. p.s. - is the OAL length giving you a 'Marlin jam' problem or a feeding problem? If its the Marlin Jam problem, give me a call and I can probably help you eliminate that little gremlin. No, it won't be sending me the rifle but rather something you can do to fix it. h: 865 / 336-2339 c: 865 / 696-1996 ..........Widder
  2. About the ONLY thing I would consider doing on a cold winter morning is maybe venture into a rabbit field, w/dogs of course. Walking a field for rabbits allows you to be well clothed, gloved, warm boots, etc..... AND, never far from the vehicle where some warm coffee or hot chocolate awaits. There's just something magical about an early morning rabbit hunting venture with a few friends and dogs. ..........Widder
  3. Howdy Ruff Kut. How far along with your 1894 conversion have you progressed? ..........Widder
  4. My orders for primers have always been thru GRAF & Sons. I've never had an issue with them. You might want to give them a shout and see if they can help. ..........Widder
  5. HEY CHILI, whatcha having done to your Marlin? You gonna get that .44 RIPSAW? send me a PM if ya want. thanks ..........Widder
  6. More info: There are few (VERY few) post on this forum that discuss this type mod, which is understandable. But, as some of our Marlin owners are aware, there are some good topics on this type mod (and the company) on the Marlinowners website. And the company owner (or rep) also visits the Marlinowners website to discuss his company and help answer a lot of questions from forum members. Hope this helps. ..........Widder
  7. Talking to yourself during your stage run, especially talking or making a body expression when missing a target. These little actions add time to stage runs. ..........Widder
  8. At present, that is the only 'company' I am aware of who is doing such mods. BUT, there are a handful of individuals in SASS/CAS who work on their own Marlins and are presently making the conversions. More than that, there are also quite a few who have modified their Marlins to shoot the Cowboy 45 Special, which is basically a rimmed .45 ACP size cartridge that works very well in the 1894 with PROPER modifications. Marauder's website shows this type modification. There has also been a few 1894's modified by SPUR a few years back that were short stroked and handled the C45S cart
  9. I've heard rumors of Forty and his night life. I also heard that Birdgun was there on a Baptist Mission trip and he tried to rescue 40 from the wicked wiles of this world. Just a rumor, of course. ..........Widder
  10. shhhhhhhhhh, don't tell anyone he is still alive or he could end up with a pardon before Jan 16th. ..........Widder
  11. This conversion on the 1894 model is nothing new. The great news is that Ranger Precision (it might be named Ranger Point Precision) is working on some good mods (conversions) with the Marlin 1894 model. The Marlin can be modified to function with MANY cartridges. ..........Widder
  12. I'm in the 'Minimalist' posse also. Ruger pistols: about once a year. SG 97: I swab the bore with an oily patch every 75-100 rounds Marlin rifle: whenever it starts to feel sluggish, or a couple times a year. In my opinion, the type of powder residue and your lubricants can create hardened crud OR prevent it. Try to use relatively clean burning powder and good lubes and you may discover a lot of your cleaning methods can be reduced to just a good wiping off of your guns. ..........Widder
  13. Calico, It ain't beer that Rye and others in the surrounding states might drink.......... its Lemonade. Check out your map and you'll see that Ohio borders on Kentucky. And most any state that borders on KY or TN has 'lemonade'. As for me, I don't indulge. That will leave more for you. ..........Widder
  14. If you want to talk about LEFT handed shooters, there's always RED KNEE out in Oklahoma who pulls 4 with the right hand while shooting from his left shoulder. He's 'kinda' fast..... ..........Widder
  15. Santa Fe River Stan pulls 3 with left hand & 1 with right hand. He goes over the top with the left hand ammo for first 3 shots and then finishes the 4th shot with the 1 round in his right hand. He's mighty good. I sure somebody can post a video of him shooting. ..........Widder
  16. JEDI Calico Mary, All those states you mentioned are top notch when it comes to clubs and the Cowboys/Cowgirls that shoot in those areas. The ONLY drawback to moving to Indiana is that you will have to put up with Purty Boy (ShyAnnie)... Also, a good deal of the clubs in those states are VERY GF indoctrinated. In other words, there are PLENTY of top notch GFer's at many of the clubs in those areas you are considering. Its not uncommon for the Ocoee Rangers (in Cleveland TN) or the Oak Ridge Outlaws (in Oak Ridge TN) to have 60+ shooters at a match with many GFer's, who also
  17. USC 52 PENN ST. 49 WHEW, this game was a real donnybrook. When Penn St came out in the 3rd qtr and put 21 on the board in 5 minutes, I thought..."Katie Bar The Door'. But USC wasn't finished strutting 'their stuff' and prevailed.......... despite some terrible Ref calls. The USC player that was thrown out of the game deserves an apology from those refs. From the replay I saw, he dove over the quarterback and didn't even touch him. Great game. ..........Widder
  18. But if you listen to some of the sports 'know it alls', they'll still try to convince you that OSU and Michigan should be playing again for the Natl Championship. the big 10 got clobbered AGAIN: Florida 30, Iowa 3. ..........Widder
  19. If "Nolege is Power", then Morelege is 'MoPower' ..........Widder
  20. CHILI, I've owned P229 in .40 cal. It functioned flawless. A shooting friend bought it from me. I presently own 2 full size P320 models in 9mm and .357 SIG. That SIG is a romper-stomper on the muzzle end, but its VERY controllable on the shooting side. I really like it as it is my main carry pistol. I'm considering buying another in P220 10mm cal. Thats a powerhouse round. ..........Widder
  21. Hey Ridgerunner, I live on the other side of the 'Hill' here in E.TN. Welcome and I'm sure our paths will cross someday. I normally shoot the NC State match. Lots of GREAT Pards in NC. And thanks for your service. ..........Widder (USN)
  22. I think our good Wire Pard, BOGGUS DEAL, also carries Lucas Oil products. My apologies to Boggus in my forgetting to mention LUCAS OIL PRODUCTS in my previous post because I got some of their gun 'stuff' from Boggus and found it top notch in cleaning and in lubricating. ..........Widder
