The wife made me a deal that if I lost 30lbs, I got a gun. So after running and dieting since February, I got the 30lbs gone and found an olde Marlin 336. It's a 1980 Model and I'm in love!!
Nope, no safety!
Congrats :thumb up:
Recoil is how you know primer ignition is complete.
I found mine at Wal-Mart for about $18 a box of 20.

Nothing, he makes a new deal and gets another gun when he loses the weight:tooth:
As good as I feel right now, I don't see the weight coming back, hopefully!! Although chiro1989, found me a bottle of beer that has about all the calories I need for a whole day!
30 lbs is a lot
Saddest time was when I had to break up my lever collection. :tissue:

Man ain't that the doggone truth. but there is an easy fix on the safety thing, http://www.leverguns.com/articles/taylor/crossbolt_safety.htm
Regarding the post above above about Winchester Power Points, I think they may have used to call them silver tips I dunno doesn't matter but what does matter is Remington has their Core Locts and Winchester has their bullets and they both have making them for a long time and they are hammers on game. I have to go now or I'll be on Gunbroker all night.
Son that's somebody with nothing to do with his time but keep me in trouble with mom.
The Win. Power Points are Win.'s version of regular lead tips. the silver Tips have a stouter nose section, as it were and permit a little deeper penetration. I've found them only in 150 gr. lds. and have some bulk bullets I bought from Midway years ago, and have found the 150gr. S.T.s are much better for hos than the reg. Power Points for hogs over 200-250lbs. or so.
