  1. I know this photo is in the thread. But I wanted a threaded trapper in 30-30 so I made one from a really rough 1957 336. I had to find parts, cut down the barrel and I had Morgan Richey at Class 3 Machining thread the barrel. I think it turned out nice. If you want to let some of the subsonic 30-30 go, let me know. (the can is still in jail)
  2. I stated to say “ but I don’t care for “tactical lever guns”.
  3. Well, I am partial to JM Marlins. However, you’re not going to find a JM Marlin in 30-30 with a threaded barrel, unless you do it yourself. The R95 is new and that is Rossi‘s “copy” of a Marlin 336. I’ve held one and they seem pretty solid. For some reason I’ve never been a fan of Henry center fire. I think it’s because they used to not have side gates. My first lever gun was a Henry that picked up from @hipower. I believe Ruger/Marlin actually has a trapper out now in 30-30 now, but they are $$$$. https://palmettostatearmory.com/marlin-sbl-336-30-30-win-19-1-6rd-lever-action-rifle-gray-laminate-70905.html or this if you can find one https://palmettostatearmory.com/marlin-model-336-dark-series-30-30-win-16-25-lever-action-shotgun-black-70497.html Between the two you listed, I would probably get the Rossi.
  4. Thanks. It’s not perfect. I was using a table top belt sander to remove excess wood on the stock, and I pushed it a little too far. But overall, I’m very happy with the results. It stated like this:
  5. Well, I did just sell one, so net zero gain.
  6. It’s well documented (in this thread, by me) that I have a problem. I also have a 1907 Winchester Model 94 in 38-55 on the way. And a buddy picked up a 1923 Winchester in 30-30. both are octagonal barreled.
  7. My latest Lever. Marlin 1893 Chambered in 38-55 made in 1900. Started out for me as a barreled receiver with the lever, bolt, hammer and loading gate included. There was no stock, no forend, no mag tube(or components), no rear sight, not forend cap or tenon. Additionally, the listing said the hammer would not lock back. The case color hardening was all but gone from the receiver (one small spot left on the inside of the lower tang plate) but the bluing on the 26” octagonal barrel still looks very good. The first thing was to figure that out turned out to be a rusted trigger spring l was having trouble finding one for an 1893 I took a chance on a trigger spring from an early 1897 (precursor to the 39a). It worked and the first issue was fixed I found the mag tube (and inner parts), rear sight, forend cap, forend tenon. Picked up a reproduction stock and forend set made of American Black Walnut. I had to finish the inletting for the tang and forend and I had to do the final shaping and apply a hand rubbed oil finish. That took a while. I finally have it all done. The stock I found was a “carbine” style. Not an issue I thought. I like them. Unfortunately, I didn’t realize that finding a Marlin 1893 Carbine butt plate was a kin to finding hen’s teeth. I do still need one and that is why there is a recoil pad on the rifle, hiding the missing butt plate. Here is a photo. If I can figure out the photo hosting site Kahrman suggested, I’ll put ip a bunch of photos of the process.
  8. Finding change in the washer/dryer and being excited. 15 to 75 cents was a decent candy haul from the 7-11 in the days before.
  9. Does your wife often find you passed out in front of your safe?
