Avoiding the ban hammer!
Girlfriend dragged me along to go to a few garage sales today. Come up the driveway of one and seea few rifles. All of them old and rusted. One marlin 80g, one looked like arisaka but the bolt was frozen and another bolt witha broken sick. Asked how much for the marlin and they said $5.00. Bought it just as a toy to tinker with. Brought it home sanded the hell out of it, gave hera fresh paint job, oiled her and dida function test... All is working. Need to find some magazines for her now. Hopefully she functions, but fit $5.00, it'll bea nice wall hanger. Have to sand the stock and restain it still.
