Nice job! By the way, Boyd's Gun stocks is a member and vendor here, and they have a forearm for your rifle.

Good restoration, but I personally would have kept it like it was. It took years to get that look!

I would've left it alone , but I will hopefully sell it before deer season opens up here so I can get a bolt action, I hate to sell ,, but with my finances never getting better sometimes I have to sell 1 thing to get another

Why not just stick with the Marlin?
