I love the peeps and the scope mount is something I never seen before on a Marlin . Is the stock plastic or rubber and where is the target ?
Thank you for the hearty welcome guy's
The gun is a 45/70. I had the choice of that or .450 but the latter would be hard to source over here. The stocks are the original wood which i hydrodipped in carbon fiber. Here is a close up of the rear stock.
I run Wild West Coatings here in Australia and we do Cerakoting and Hydro dipping. The rifle is still in its original stainless form sans the XS scout mount which is cerakoted in satin silver. When its quiet season i will cerakote the whole lot to make the stainless match all round. Just to let you all know we are civilized over here and all our Polar bears are house trained.

Wow, Cowboy that is beautiful. If you just show that to a bear he will bow down and tell you he is not worthy and walk away!
And welcome to the forum.

Noise Maker

I make lots of noise to scare critters away because I'm a nature lover......and a lousy shot. One of my favorite noise makers is the attached Winchester M1 Garand.

The bear would have the disadvantage if he were chasing me because he would be slipping in my sh___. I grew up in bear country and found for the most part they didn't like humans and would run away.

Nice looking. What is the story with the peep sight behind the scope?

It runs an XS Ghost ring sight system as well as the scout scope. The scope is on Leupold Quick detachable rings so in 3 secs i am back to open sights when the bush gets too thick

No lever guns since I let my 39A Golden Mountie get away from me I know, I know.

The .338 Win Mag w 225 Nosler Partitions should do though. Or one of the pump 12 ga magnums alternating slugs and 00.

Well i cant even afford that. What i have is a poor mans system. I use a small flat blade key to take my stock off and then it all fits into a tiny 28" KD Stephens leather and canvass gun bag. Its a great looking bag of the Bespoke nature and its small enough to fit into my day Bivy bag. Many times my mates have asked "didnt you bring your rifle".

WWcowboy that works for me . In the 70's before ATV , 2 wheel dirt bike , horses or jeeps was how you hunted in those days . I took a 600 Remy barrel and bolt in 308 Winc out of a rifle and put it into this 221 fireball to have a big bore gun to hunt coyotes and deer and carry on my drit bike . . 5 years later Remy start making 7BR with the larger bolt face . I had a 4 power scope on it for hunting .
