My new(to me) toys!!
4 Attachment(s)
A fellow forum member was lightening his firearms load and I decided to help him out. Thefreg2000 helped me add this Marlin 783 22 WRM to my collection. I don't know that I NEEDED a 22 mag but I've always thought 22 mag was an underrated round and I've wanted one for a little while.

I was happy when it showed up because it is in great shape. Blue is nice and shiny, wood looks good, bore is great. I can't wait to shoot it!!

Thru the PMs and emails and what not he mentions a parts gun and of course I'm interested. He throws in a Remington Model 41 Targetmaster which is missing a bolt at no charge. It's in good shape overall. It does have a small crack in the stock but nothing serious. Now I'm on the hunt for a bolt...

Then jeepcreep hooked me up with this beauty. All I need now is a sheath.

Very nice Spittin', all of us need another gun for the safe.

Very nice spitty. You may have to make a sheath for the knife.

I thought CA357 was the resident sheath maker.

Spitty your being nice to yourself this Christmas.

Very nice Spitty. I had my eye on Ferg's 39A but didn't have the bucks.

As far as sheath making goes, I'm almost finished with mine. Let me tell you making a sheath is not as easy as it would seem. :o
