It's tough for a gun hound to lay on the porch.

Hey everybody, do you need another perfect!!! Marlin example. An as-new 781 just got posted on GB. I have my bid in. I expect it to go to $350--400, + thats what happened to the last perfect one went to $405. I was in and got out last at 368 if I remember correctly.

Scope mounted now!

Got this Bushnell Banner 4-12x40 a week or so ago to go on the 25M with the GM barrel but I decided it might work better on this one.

Heck, I'm so sick that I picked up a 783 with a scope and a little surface rust on Friday for $115. I took it home, took off the scope and kept it, hit the metal bits with a Big45 pad and some oil for about 10 minutes, and sold the rifle without the scope on Sunday for $200. Of course, I'm pretty much flush with 22 Magnums, if I count 'em all up...

My wife will drop a comment every once in a while, yeah you need another Marlin 22. I was traveling for business and I has the TV on the hotel - it was an American Pickers marathon. Some guy had something like 30 Corvettes he and his dad had acquired. They were in various stages of sitting there as they bought them, to being restored, to the one his kid fixed and drives. I also have one 1971 Corvette, I had to call her and tell her about the TV show guy's Corvette problem and put my little Marlin rimfire hobby in perspective. I'm up to 26 Marlin rimfires (all 22LR). 25 are together and functional, one is apart right now for my 16 year old to refinish the stock and put it back together himself.

What's the difference between the 981T and the 981TS? I didn't realize those were separate models. My first guess is the 'S' means stainless steel, but my own TS is blued (and stamped TS on the barrel).

Yes, my 981TS is stainless, the 981T is blued.

Sometimes as i'm walking into a LGS, I am half hoping they don't have any dusty old Marlins with bright shiny bores on the racks.

But it seems the one you're not expecting always seems to pop up and ends up going home with you.
