Surely one of the old lever guns is still basically the same?

Well, no longer produced, but the Browning A-5 shotgun was made 1898 to 1998. The basic S&W K frame style revolver also goes back that far. Winchester 94, etc.

I would maybe like to buy a new stock for my Dad's Marlin. It says this on the barrel "Model 81-DL .22 cal-S-L-LR". How do I know what stock will fit my Dad's gun? I have never bought a stock before and I would like to be sure the one I buy fits the gun. And I also need to be sure it fits ME. I'm short and I think I need a shorter than average stock. Was that the MOA thread I saw a while ago? If so, I will search that thread out and study it.

WOC- look for Length of Pull. That is fitting a stock to a person.

Marlin 81DL. Nice little rifle.

BOYDS The World's Foremost Supplier of Hardwood Gunstocks.

That is for an 81C, but call and talk with them- I think it will fit. There have been a couple of variants in the 81 DL model (there are at least 2 different bolts for the 81 DL)

Thank you, C3shooter. I took my Dad's Marlin to Bear's with me in September. I would like to fancy it up a little, though it's pretty nice looking already. I'm in no hurry. I'll look around. I want something 'purdy'. I would like to get a stock that looks like one of these.......

Of course I'm not going to make my own, I just posted this link for color choices and for you to know what I'm looking for. I guess it's laminated wood..........like the grips on my Mark II.

I don't exactly know what these mean. Can someone explain?

Cocked and Locked.


Locked and Loaded.


When I went shooting with Hunter Joe in Racine, Wisconsin about a year ago, he showed me what one of them meant on his 1911 but I can't remember what he showed me and which one he explained.

Yes, those are laminates- some very striking designs. Gonna be a challenge to find one that will fit your Dad's 81- those were not high dollar guns, and have been out of production for some time. There are a few folks that have some very pretty walnut, tho. With a good fine sanding, and a few coats of hand rubbed tung oil, grain of the wood will durn near glow.

Locked and loaded- round has been chambered, mag in the weapon, safety (lock) is on.

Cocked and locked- round chambered, hammer cocked (on a 1911A1 or similar) and safety is on. Ready to rock and roll.

Although the term "locked an loaded" gets used. the proper commands of a range officer to shooters on the line would be something like "Line is no longer clear. Shooters: LOAD one 10 round magazine, LOCK your safeties. Ready left? Ready right? Shooters: release your safeties, commence fire."

Thank you once again, C3shooter.

My Dad's gun has a very nice wood stock right now. I don't know if it's walnut or what it is. I'll ask Bear. He saw it and I'm sure he knows what it is. I'll report back later.

There are some great colors there. I'll have to go back when I have more time.
