    Thanks my man! I committed to buying that rifle. I've never bought by internet before and am a little worried, but hey that's the last one in the country!

    Thanks again
    Greg

    Most of my buys off the internet have been positive. Standard 3 day inspection usually. I think the worst part are extra shipping and transfer fees at times, but if you want it and there it is then oh well. Good luck.

    Hey duster066...you will have to give us a full report when you pick that one up. That one is a Remlin. It looks good in the pictures. I have read reports of guys buying new ones in gun shops and they were good quality again.

    I talked to a longstanding marlin employee last week. He says things are improving again. Hope so for sure.

    I hope it's a good one, but if not it can be made good one way or another. This is a weird buy for me. All of my guns have some kind of defense or survival purpose even if remote. This is the first one I've bought just to have fun with. As some of you may remember I really wanted a Henry, but couldn't find one, so this one gets to come play cowboy with me.

    I felt really bad when I watched my race kart disappear down the street. I feel much better now. One sport behind me, and a new one right up ahead. What do you think of the alias "Peawiliker Jones. That's PJ to you! Only my mother calls me Peawiliker."

    Hey duster....don't go short changing that carbine as a defensive weapon. It's short enough to be handy in the house and if the disturbance has to be handled outside I prefer it to a handgun.

    I think your alias is funny. I think everyone else will find it humorous and imaginative as well.

    I don't know where he got it, but my dad used to call me Peawiliker Jones when he was playing with me. It stuck in my head.

    Duster066, how did that 357 work out for you? Did you ever reconsider the defensive potential?

    I bought my 357 CSS early this year specifically to match my Ruger 357. My bump in the night go to is still the GP100, but anything more involved (and with some advance notice) will summon the 1894. Lots more velocity and another post was absolutely correct that the carbine is still handy indoors.

    Hey miles,

    I love that rifle. It took a little extra smoothing to get it like I wanted it, but it feeds everything I load very sweet now. I'm using it to hunt black bear and deer this year.
