Itís a sickness......I need help!



Log in to see fewer ads
I went by my LGS this past Friday to pickup scope rings for the 25M with the Green Mountain barrel I got a few weeks ago. While there I spied another very nice 25M with the checkered walnut stock for $219. I think Iím going back tomorrow and make an offer on it. I really donít need another one, but this one is really nice!

I need help thread

I've reviewed your post and I think the only help you may need is maybe a larger safe, because everything sounds all ok.

I must admit I took care of that problem last year. I built a 12x8 vault in my basement. 8Ē concrete blocks filled with concrete and rebar 7.5 feet high with a 6Ē thick concrete ceiling and a snap safe vault door. I have my gun safe inside the vault along with an old govt. surplus filing cabinet (takes 2 people to move) for ammo.
Also have some shelving for storage and a dehumidifier to keep the moisture controlled.

Now let me get this right, you have a safe inside of a safe? Isn't that a bit of overkill? If the safe room is moisture controlled then the safe and file cabinet are just taking up extra room you could be filling with guns.

Yeah, maybe it is overkill but I want anyone who tries to steal my guns to have to work hard for them! And no the safe won’t fit thru the vault door, I moved it into the area and we built the vault around it.


Back to the subject of this thread....I went by the LGS today and brought this beauty home with me for $200 OTD.
I honestly think this gun is unfired, no sign of any powder residue in the receiver or mag and the bolt still has the factory grease on it.
Other than a couple of small scuffs on the stock it’s mint. Serial number starts with 02 so I think that makes it a 1998 YOM.

I'm working on it. This is the third 25MN I've bought in the last two months. And these join a XT22MR and a 922M in my safe as well as a 75 that I bought a couple of weeks ago. I have GOT to stop going to the LGS and gun shows for a while because I have seriously depleted my gun funds.

I feel your pain, in the last four months I have added (7) Marlins to my collection.
99C, 75, 922M, 25MB, 39M, 70P and a 39A. I'm tapped out, got to stay away from GB and my Local gun pushers. I haven't had time to check the accuracy of most of them. Usually buy, step out back run 10 or 15 rds thru them to make sure they shoot and into the safe they go. Need to get scopes bought and mounted, bunch of them need new buffers installed
That being said, I got some great deals and I love the chase
