New family portrait. The 45-70 Trapper looks out of place.

(2 are for sale, 3rd and 5th from left)

Nice looking family.

My Winchester 94 finally arrived home Wednesday, after I freed it from layaway (along with a S&W I-Frame .32 long). I plan to refinish it. So @Snavebaexpect some questions from me, when I get started on this project. 
 

The serial number (188XXXX) indicates it was produced in 1952.

Took a couple of the Marlins out today that have not gotten much attention in a long, long time.  ‘76 336T and ‘82 39A.

How did they run after such a long period of neglect??  😉

Like they did brand new.  They are cared for, just not shot much.

Bought the 39 about 10 years ago,  the 336T I got for Christmas (with some begging, lol) when I was in 7th grade.

When I was in 7th grade I also started reloading…30-30 being one of the calibers.  Last night I rediscovered my stash of rounds I reloaded all those years ago.  Decided it was time to get rid of those 40+ year old reloads from barely teen me.  They look like hell and I don’t even know what’s in them, but they all went bang and not to bad accuracy-wise.

Finally picked up a Marlin 1895 Trapper 16.1 in threaded barrel in 45-70 at a decent price. This was a BIG NEED. LOL

I wanted the SBL, but after seeing this decided I like the Trapper Model better, I have one of these coming and I am looking forward to it!

You won't be disappointed. Here it is with a can on it. Balances very well.

If you are going to hunt with it go with a .45-70.  If it is mainly for plinking and action shooting then a .357 or .44 is hard to beat.  I love my Marlin 336 in .44mag.

I am thinking about making the Marlin 1894 in .44 magnum my next purchase, I love the Ruger made Marlins

You could go original Marlin 44mag JM stamped. Stay away from @KahrMan, he will help feed the addiction.

Well, most of my Marlins are Micro-groove so I can’t say I don’t like it. (LOL). If it was bad, Marlin wouldn’t have kept it for ever. Is it as accurate as Ballard rifling, I’m not sure. But super accuracy is not what I am worried about.
