    Thanks, yes I consider 1.75 MOA at 100 with traditional open sights plenty accurate as well, I suspect that with an aperture sight the groups would shrink even further. I didn't know they were floated and bedded.

    I pulled mine out to look it over. Found a screw half way out.

    My first .30-30....

    Found this Marlin 30TK and liked the 18.5" barrel with 2/3s magazine. The wood was just K-Mart quality beech as that who the gun was made for. Had this funky padded sling that turned out to be original to the gun when sold by K-Mart...

    [​IMG]

    Someone had shortened the butt and put a big pad on...the LOP wasn't too bad but it was just fuggly... Just completely lucked out as a few weeks later a 336 strait stock set in walnut came up for sale on ebay with a $65.00 BuyNow...needless to say I didn't wait...

    [​IMG]

    The stock and forend needed refinishing but I know a master furniture refinisher who did the job very nicely.

    Because the TK forend was much shorter than replacement 336 forend I had my gunsmith relieve the barrel and magazine tube so the barrel band screw could be secured. He also did the final fitting on the forend.

    Original...

    New...

    Finished product..

    Don't think I will scope it but I do have a nice 1.5-5 Leupold VXIII in the orphan scope bin looking for a home...or maybe a nice peepsight...

    Pawn shop rescue. "Restored" the rear sling mount from the bullseye where bubba put it, and found some beautiful wood under ... well I really don't know what was on it, but it looks good now.

    I have always liked the 2/3 and Button magazines for that different look. Also as much as I like and prefer Marlins. Levers like shotguns, should all have straight butt stocks.

    I'll always maintain the Winchester lever gun is the undisputed suprime saddle gun. The 1895 is my favorite by far though the 94 in .30-30 is a a good choice also.

    I'm up helping on a ranch where bears and wolves are a problem so I elected to take my 1895SRC in .30-06 throwing heavy 220 grain bullets. I made the mistake of trying to ride through a bog that was much deeper than I thought. My horse went down, I jumped off and he rolled... right onto my rifle. This is the result. 20190828_203423.jpg

    Just finished modifying this 1972 336 in 30-30.

    I shorted the mag tube, cropped the pistol grip, fit a light weight recoil pad, refinished the wood, filled the rear sight dovetail, and installed a Williams fool proof aperture sight. I also hollowed out the butt stock until the balance was perfect. Finished weigh is approx 6.5 lbs.

    Being an older gun the action is smoooth and I love that it doesn't have the ugly warning stamped into the barrel!

    As much as I love my Rossi Carbine 357, I fell in love today.

    Meet Charlene, she is a 92 vintage 1894CS in 357. At only $120 more than I gave for my Rossi I caved and put her in jail.
    The scope and mount have got to go, I am going to order a rear peep sight for her and call it a day.

    And here she is without all the extra stuff. All I need now is a nice sling, and shell cuff for the stock and maybe a rear peep sight.

    And next to the Rossi Carbine, I'm trading the Rossi off to a good friend for a prestiene Ruger 77/22 on tuesday

    That's a good looking rifle. I'm quite fond of my recent production 1894c, but the wood on yours is much nicer, and I like the smooth stocks instead of the checkering.

    While leather stock cuffs are always more attractive, if you're looking for functional, the .30 cal stock cuff from Hill People Gear works for .357 cartridges. It's hypalon so it can stand up to getting wet quite well.
