    You're gonna hate me!

    Went to the local gun show yesterday with my usual low expectations! Well, I was in for a pleasant surprise and found this!

    1881 Marlin in .40-60 Marlin, which is identical to the 40-65 Winchester, based on the .45-70 cases with a straight taper.
    Very nice feathered walnut, double set trigger, perfect bore, nice case hardening.





    This one was JB's fault, 'cause he let me shoot his 1881 at the SE shoot, been lusting for one ever since!

    Ain't showin' here!

    ETA - most likely, its because you linked pix from a different forum. If I'm not logged into said forum, they won't display. I've been bit by this one myself!

    What? No Colt Lightning in the same chambering?

    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    Beautiful rifle.
    We as a country have a blown engine, a transmission that slips in every forward gear, and a rear diff with a loud whine. And our politicians keep trying to spray armorall on the tires and proudly step back as if they are helping fix the car.

    Al, have you ever been to Ireland and kissed the Blarney Stone? You seem to have been permanently blessed with unending luck when it comes to guns, AND cars.

    That is one beautiful Rifle.

    Made from 1881-1891. About 21000 produced. There was a large frame model in .45-70 and .40-60, and a small frame in .38-55 and .32-40.
