Let's see those vintage lever guns.

Working on fixing up my JM Marlin 336 and would like to see some pics of others classics.
 
I got this one from my grandpa which he got second hand. It will be staying in the family from here on out. No plans to refinish. Just added a sling kit and have a skinner dovetail aperture sight ordered. I was looking at the receiver version of their sight but liked the aesthetics of the dovetail better. Custom leather sling by Rick Garcia.
 
It is a 1976 mode that has seen its fair share of use and taken plenty of deer. Still smooth as silk though.

Not to detract from your beautiful firearm @maroonandwhite but I haven't put mine out there much. I've always wanted a 336 but have no real purpose for one. It would not see full use and to fancy for a range piece. A Henry in 22LR or the Big Boy in 38/357 is a bucket list item personally. When it's time it will hopefully be custom obviously to get a round barrel to match the old man 1866.

I didn't start shooting lever guns until recently.  I've passed up some good opportunities to acquire a few vintage rifles.  My Henry .44 mag quickly became a favorite.  A .45-70 will be next on the list.

What are those? I can't see the first pic for some reason but the second looks like a .22 or pistol caliber.
