Default The alaskan copilot : ultimate big-bore lever ?

Doing some research on synthetic stocks, I stumbled across a custom gun outfit in alaska that makes a modified 1985 marlin guide gun, and I have to say, it floored me.

6.5 pounds, or more.

it can fire .457 ww magnum or regular 45-70 loads,
( and .410 shot. ) and It's a take down, ( detachable barrel / mag ) and ...
Wow, just read the list :

Barrel cut and crowned 16.5, 18.5 or 20 inches
Takedown rifle conversion
WWG Recoil Control Porting System
Wood Stock Cut to Your Length of Pull
Pachmayr Decelerator pad
Action tuned for reliability
WWG Bear Proof Ejector installed
WWG Trigger Happy Kit installed and set at approx. 3lbs
Safety Vented Magazine Tube
WWG Original Ghost Ring Sight with Threaded aperture
Williams Fire Sight in red or green with skeletonized hood
Mil-Spec Parkerized finish
Soft, padded carrying case
Test Fired

all major internal parts are stainless finished, and it comes parkerized with pretty-much every finish known to man available.

I don't really see the utility in the takedown, for me but all the precision work and the custom options makes me drool.
I'm hoping they can take my marlin 1895 sbl and put in a synthetic stock with a pachymar buttpad. ...
But If I had the money, I'd de-finitely get the co-pilot, chromed with synthetic stock and some other cool doodads, as it is i can't go over 3000 $

for me i'll probably just get them to install a plastic stock on an 1895 sbl and tune it a bit.

... MAYBE IF I MAKE ROUGHNCK WAGES and sav:ce then i can get a copilot with a six rounf mag

sry, medicatede right noe. sleeping pills.

My Guide Gun is plenty of gun. Having a corrosion resistant finish would be nice, but not if it cost that much. I see no need to make it a take down, it is plenty compact as is. The big loop would be nice, but WWG wants WAY TOO MUCH $ for their product IMHO.

It's cool and all but I can't see spending that kind of money on what they're selling.

" You can't ever pay enough for peace of mind "

I'm wondering about the " bear proof " extractor, tho. Do marlins ever have extracting problems with factory loads ? I should think not.

I'm getting the 7-shot marlin 1895 sbl, and I'm getting a light plastic stock installed. The 1895sbl already comes stainless treated, and I'm not sure about the parkerization. .... fugly and greasy.

Maybe this is to keep bears from using it against you?
