Closing in on June!

Bring on that bolt Revelation 100 Jo.

Maybe we'll get our own class.

Quick update (peek) on the 'derTangoplunkungun':

Paint isn't dry yet but wanted to see how the bolt looked.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Update on the 'derTangoplunkungun':

Well she's together!

I have always thought the Marlin 60 is a hansome rifle, this color does not hurt it's classic lines.

Here is the replacement scope. It's a NcSTAR SCA420B (4 X 20) and cost a whopping $10 + 6.75 shipping.

Early review; not sure it's worth all that money!

Next step is to sling some lead and zero the new scope!

Cane, I worried over a dent, You go and make a silk purse, out of a old clunker. I got to see how this thing shoots. Hurry the heck up. I have a stevens 954 (Savage 64) I hate it's looks. Guess what is going to happen to it. You are an insane inspiration. That is a compliment. I can see JD's envy now. He'll be building something.

I did not use a primer on the metal, bad mistake. The paint can said I didn't need primer but I'll bet by the end of the summer the barrel will have bare spots.

I think I could have spent a little more on the scope but I'll wait until I get her to the range before I condemn my incredible outlay for the NcSTAR!

I think the finished product is a worthy result for a week-end project!
