Also finished up the stock work on the 1895 Marlin - also, no more goofy safety!

    Very, very nice. Do you have time to ride often or use any of your stock for hunting?

    Ride as often as I can, pasture patrol, looking for lost calves, etc. None of the horses available to me are broke to firearms, but you can shoot off mine once :tooth:

    I've never taken a shot off of a horse. But they are right handy for getting your gear in and out and your quartered Elk back to the truck. Actually i prefer Mules, when available.

    That is nice leather work. You did a great job dressing the wood on the 1895.
    I am afraid we forget sometime that the basic and simple things brings us the most pleasure.

    I really like that scabbard and custom fit too. With a little time the color will match your saddle won't it?

    Not sure how long it will take, it took that saddle near 80 years to get to the color it is (It was brand new in 1935)
