    For those still interested in this... Took the marlin to the range today and put about 20
    rounds through it, except I mounted a scope to it. My father in law had a never been used
    Bushnell 4x38 sport ...

    ...forgot to call marlin today.The crown doesn't look bad, but a couple inches down is abit of
    pitting, and spots here and there down to just above the thoat are pitted. To my surprise
    though, the thr...

    I'll give them a call and see what it would be. I'll let you guys know what I find out. It

    Again, I appreciate all of your advice and I think I'll leave it alone for now and see if I

    To axxe55: My skills are mainly automotive bassed. I've rebuilt and swapped engines and have

    worth it. Since...

    I can understand that. How much do you think, or any experienced smith, it might cost to have
    this done? I don't mind trying a failing because a few smiths have told me with the barrel the

    the 3030 case. I was thinking if I turned down some bushings to run a rod through it would keep
    the rod ...
