Hi, I'm new to the forum, and I just acquired a Marlin 783 in .22WMR in trade.
I got this for a pair of electronic ear muffs!! I think I got the better deal....



I'll be replaceing the scope with something a little more powerful, but so far I'm a happy camper!!

My 60sb is from 2000 and has an original stock with the crummy pressed checkering that marlin does on these guns. IT has checkering at the wrist and the fore-end.

Thanks Arrowdodger... I imagine the 99 is from 1959-60. It has no serial number whatsoever. It does have a nice piece of walnut though. I bought it last year in new, unused condition and nearly 50 years old. It's only been to the range once and now stays at home.

crummy or not i think it "looks" better than just a plain stock. my father once re-did his 303 British stock and hand checkered it...maybe he will have to show me how.

I agree the pressed checkering looks better than none at all but I sure wish it were proper cut checkering. I once read an article telling how to reverse this kind of checkering into the useful style with raised diamonds. If I ever learn how to do any checkering I may attempt that some day.

Here's Mine - Still Factory..

Well, I finally got all the cash together and made a decision. (as slow as it was)

But she is finally home in my safe. A brand new:

Marlin 925R Bolt Action .22LR, standard blued barrel with black synthetic stock. I topped it with the very economical and available Bushnell RimFire 3-9x32 Matt Black scope.

Sportsman's Warehouse was incredible with my constant visits and questions and layaway needs. They attached the scope, leveled and bore-sighted at no additional charge. I was out the door with the gun, scope, sling and 200 rounds of .22LR for sighting in for just about $250.

I will have real pics after the wife goes to bed. Thank you everyone for your help. This was by far one of the most exciting purchases of my hunting gear (less my first over/under).

I can not wait to:
  1. shoot it
  2. adjust it
  3. go squirrel hunting (just under a month away!)
  4. upgrade
  5. modify
  6. expand
  7. and buy more rimfires!
The full view:


Close up of the $36 dollar scope - that's right.. I splurged!!


More economical scope flattery!


And the view I will get when sighting in a tasseled eared or cotton tail!


It seams to fit really nice. The T-900 Trigger is wide and crisp with next to no creep - a little heavy - but that can be fixed or lived with.

the scope of the short ranges that I haved looked at in the yard and such seams good. I can't wait to hit BASF and then take in some game hunting.

That's a helluva nice-lookin' rig there, PowerTrip.

Get some medium rings and a Simmons Prairie Master and be done with it.

On closer inspection of the photos, I'm finding 25 serious bad issues with that rifle.....you might wanna have SBR staff (me) look it over real good.
