Got myself a little toy yesterday: Marlin 1895 in 45-70. Got a 22" barrel and walnut stock. She's a sweet little honey.





She's here with my other lover....er....lever - a Model '94 in .44 Magnum.

Very nice set. So how did the "She just followed me home" line work? I'm always looking for a new excuse!
al
It's worked once for me.
I told her that I had run into a beautiful blond girl from Switzerland. When we met she was surrounded by a motley group of Russians (Mossin's). She was very scared & lonley so I offered to take care of her & she followed me home.
Then I went out to the truck & broght the K-31 in to meet her. :wink:

She said the whole story I told her was so cute that she could'nt get mad.

LMAO Man Magnum that's a great story!!
And all this time I have been using logic and facts to convince my wife that I need another gun. No wonder it didn't work.

Hey Hey... stay safe out there!

Yep Big-5 had her on sale for $89.00 & after seeing just how good the bore ext. looked, I was headed out the door with it. Total and complete impulse buy. :shock:

So then I had to drive from Orem to Santaquin & in that amount of time I managed to come up with that little bit of creativity based on the facts.
It was the only one they had. It was surrounded by a bunch of mossin's (Note to self: one of those mossin long rifles would be nice too). And she's a blond because of the light colored beechwood stock. :D

I'm just happy that she was so amused because I thought she was going to beat me for getting it.

Get this. First round I chambered in the new gun and it jams. It loaded into the chamber all right but upon racking the lever to eject it, it locks up the bolt hard (about 7/8ths the way back).

Anyhoo, just spent 3 hours taking the gun apart (with the help of a VERY knowledgable friend) and was able to get the cartridge out. Whew! A loaded firearm with a mechanical problem always makes me nervous! :shock:

Well, turns out the extractor claw isn't holding on tight enough to the cartridge. So the cartridge seems to be hitting the ejector clip on the way back and stopping hard.

So, I get to call Marlin first thing in the morning.

GRRRRRRRRRRRR! :evil:

The place I purchased the gun (Impact Guns) was no help. They knew as much about the gun as I did. Oh well.....

Sorry to hear it's got problems. :cry:

I've only heard good things about Marlin's Customer service though. Hopefully they get you taken care of.

So far so good.

Called Marlin this morning and they are sending me a pre-paid UPS Waybill o have the gun sent back to them.

Hey....I just remember that this is a 'Concealed' forum. Are we really allowed to talk about rifles here? :D

sounds like a good response to a customer problem so far.

concealment just depends on the length of your topcoat! :lol:
