Thanks guys.

I was one of the lucky people to actually receive my stock from "Sharpsman". It's a laminate. You can find pictures of my bedding job elsewhere in this forum, or stored on my website here: www.geocities.com/rcrdps/Web/Gun/newstock . or www.genesdomain.com and go to Ballistics.

Bipod is Outers. Scope is a Cableas Pine Ridge Rimfire Tactical with the 17HMR turrets on it. The barrel is soldered to the reciever to make the joint stiffer since I "block" bedded the barrel and not the reciever. The reciever floats. Blueing is removed, and painted with Krylon Camo colors. Moly Fusion in the barrel. Weaver #16 bases, Warne quick-release rings. Shooting equipment is a Bushnell Trophy Range finder, Burris spotting scope and tripod, and the shooting pad is the paratrooper's thingy you can buy from Cheaperthandirt.com.

Now for the stuff ya'll are probably actually interested in,...

The ammo holder is custom from a friend of mine. He owns an upholstery business( candmupholstery.com). The bolt handle is custom by me. I made it on my lathe. Turned out of steel bar. It feels good. Basically, I cut off the original ball, threaded the handle, and threaded on my custom one.

Current aspirations, aside from actually getting to shoot it with the new scope, are to decrease the head space. I measured it. It's about 7 thousandths. I want it to be less than a thousandth. I bought some shim for it.

Last but not least, don't ask about groups. I don't get to shoot often enough for that. That's why I work on my gun(s) so much. When I go out to shoot, I spend half the time getting my zero( since I likely played with it since the last shoot), and the other half hitting a spinner, or watching others shoot. Not much time alone to shoot groups,....

Sorry for the long writeup,..

Gene

I use for shooting swinging steel plates.
I must say loading the mags sure raises heck with my thumb.

Lets see some of the 39's folks.

I wants every one of these!!!!!!!!!! I've caught the Marlin bug and I'm luvin' it. I'm waking up every morning with a Mar-lon
I'm a sucker for the Glenfield 70(79) blonde model. I'm grateful this thread started. We did need a photo area for Marlins.

Here's a pair of M60 cantilever projects I have on the drawing board....I'm praying for some help with the stock designs.
- Adjustable Cantilever - Aggressive Comb & Semi-Beavertail - Bedded Barrel with floating action - 1.5 lb trigger - Zero Creep - Minimal Over-travel - 9 Shot Mag - Vented forend - Adjustable comb is being considered.

Marlins Git 'er Done-

Thanks Midwest Swiss...sweet groups and cross-piercings. Give us some details on bedding methods you employed here, please-

We'd appreciate in detail your pillar styles and dimensions as well as what areas of the stock you found bedding weaknesses that indicated a benefit with epoxy.

I have since put the original hammer spring back in to many FTF.
I am also going to leave the rifle the way it is now.
Maybe refinish the stock this winter.

Good luck on your project.

I love your Marlin collection.....esoxhunter.

Thanks again MWSwiss-
Should the rubber compound (cool idea) fail in time, a old bicycle tire can give you similar results. Same complaint...cheap scopes kept loosing their poa when the rifle would cycle. Softening the blow to the buffer corrects alot of poa issues.

I've stoned firing pins before. Haven't done it on mine yet. Did cut off almost 2 coils of the hammer spring...No FTFs yet.

Polishing the sear/hammer engagements helps with some good ol' graphite, for sure. One of my all time favorite lubes.

Headed for work tonight. Have a good'un.
