    This is a gun I found in the woods on a hog hunt... It had been out there so long the stock had rotted off it... Brought it home and started to work on it and this is the final product... Its a old Marlin/Glenfield 60

    Nice job. How does it shoot? Is that the original barrel & receiver?

    All I got sorry guys...

    This is the barrel and tube we pryed out of it... The stock had rotted off and the receiver and trigger gaurd had oxidized up pretty solid... The receiver trigger gaurd and internals for the trigger group and some internals from the receiver were basically what we salvaged also used some of the old tube to extend the newish stainless one... Had the bipod layin around so we anodized that same with the rings... Stock is a stockys stock haha... The barrel and tube are used and we just polished them back up... Stripped the receiver sanded out all the pits and polished it up same for the trigger gaurd... The trigger is very interesting its got set screws in it now to take out the slack and over travel its very crisp and not heavy by any means.... Its one heck of a shooter... Use 16 gauge shells for targets at 100 yrds... It is pillar bedded and jb bedded ;)

    I wonder how someone leaves a gun out in the woods.
