  1. Dakota Brown was looking to make that swap about a month back. Maybe check with him. Rob
  2. Does it say Winchester on the butt plate ? a pic. would be nice. Thanks Rob
  3. Long Fingers, I made some, made the ears on one to look more like a mule, long and up. Mule was gray with white muzzle and feet, Horse was a painted pony, pinto, white and ginger. The ginger was on the body going in to the legs also. If you want to Email me at robatmine@comcast.net with the help of my wife I may be able to send you some Pics. not a puter guy. Rob
  4. Your shell stop look find. If you find a welder you may want to take your other 97 to show him what needs to be welded back, as little welding as needed, less grinding for you. The picture Big Boston sent show how little it is. Go slow when grinding and checking fit. Good luck. Rob
  5. Yep, Looks like they're gone. Like I said you need to find a good welder that can weld a little bead back in there, then you need to with a Dremel and some stones shape it back, it's a job but it can be done. Maybe you can find another receiver or maybe you have a bunch of spare part, that's up to you. Rob
  6. What Gambler said, best done with carrier out of gun. Tabs can be broken off, then you have to find a good welder. Rob
  7. There is one of each on Gun Brokers, very pricey.
  8. I have the Browning model, other then name and cosmetic, I think they are the same rifle. I think the wood is a little nicer on the Browning. The bore is .376 on mine I shoot a .377- 255 gr. bear creek out to 200 yds. can't see much farther with these old eyes, does great. I think pick a name, you will be happy with ether one. Rob
  9. Wouldn't matter, probably wouldn't see after the second round anyway, have fun.
  10. Widderman, the helpful Marlin man. Rob
  11. The early model 97 riot guns were made for law enforcement, prison guards, railway agents and bank guards. The reason for slam fire, fast follow up shots. They went to war, WW1, they added the heat shield and bayonet lug. There is a adjusting screw behind the trigger to adjust so that the hammer only drop when the gun is fully locked up. Hold the trigger down, run the action, 6 rounds out real fast. Wow that was fun. Rob
  12. Thank you, that is what I thought, you would ask him to open the action if no rounds found, no call.
  13. Shooter brings unloaded 97 shotgun closed, hammer down, to staging table. Stage DQ or Miner Safety ? Thanks Rob
  14. Ranger Point makes all kind of tacticool goodies for Marlin. Not for me, I'll just stay cowboy. My 45acp Marlin camp carbine had a plastic stock when I got it, put the wood back on. To each his own. Rob
  15. Happy Trails owner of the Smith Shop would send order before payment all the time. I would tell him to tell me how much I owed, he would say wait till you get it. What a nice man. I once sent him a check, forgot to sign it, he called me, boy did I feel like a ass., got a new one in the mail with in a hour. Yes the Cowboy Way is still out there. Rob
  16. Did you see the truck drive by in the back ground ? I think it is in the seen were the Calavary is in the snow bringing in captive, look out in the back ground and you will see a truck drive by. Good movie, one of Johns best and Natalie Wood. I think Sue is right, slang.
  17. I guess I will have yo watch the movie to night to see what he said. It will be good no matter what, Cowboy movie! hope I can stay a wake.
  18. What is the diameter of the 38-55 bullets ?
