I would normally make some cheeky remark along the lines of, "too bad about the splotchy wood", but that rifle is just too purty. That stock may not be one in a million, but it is at least one in several tens of thousands. For that rifle, $375 was a steal!
Thanks guys. I originally saw an ad for a $100 Marlin in the Paper Shop in my area. When I got in touch with the guy It had been sold. Turns out it was a misprint anyway and it was a Winchester. The guy still had this .35 and a 30-30 new unfired for sale both $375 each. I wish I had the money for the 30-30. Lucky for me a storm had damaged this guys roof and needed some fast cash!
It's a .35 and it's a Marlin...not a Remington!Well I stand to be corrected again! You are right. I guess I have to watch my words and terminology on this forum as we have some very knowlegeable people here. That is a good thing. Ive noticed that I cant post in a figure of speach kind of way and I'll have to start pulling out my book of gun terms before I post. I was already told my 39M which is a 20" carbine is not a carbine at all or it would be rollmarked carbine. Technically thats right as the Carbine model was marked carbine and had a 3/4 mag tube although a carbine in my gutteral brush hunters way of speaking is 20".
I was just curious if Marlin had come out with a 35 Marlin Express, to complement their existing 308ME and 338ME rounds. I'd like to see that, personally. I really like seeing guns like this, but I always want to know exactly what cartridge it shoots, as well as the make n' model. I think I'm weird that way, since most guys don't seem to ask, just me.
