I got this in a trade last weekend. Now I have 2 lever guns.
Nice looking pair you have there!
Welcome to the forum. Enjoy yourself!
Howdy, GoesBang, and welcome to the camp from northeast Indiana. Thank you for posting the pictures. Have a seat over here by the fire and help yourself to the coffee.
Welcome to the forum!
Reset the bases and moved the scope 1/2" forward. Installed a pistol grip button.
Alongside the Henry with a new scope.
Looking good! How do they shoot? Do you reload?
Welcome to the forum. Nice looking guns you have there.
Have not had good enough weather/time to shoot the Marlin yet. Yes I do reload. Have some cast 160's and Trailboss loaded. Some more cast 160 with 3 different powders to test. Got some 125 Sierra RNFP to load. And finally some 135 gn Acme cast to try out too.
A cast 160 gn dummy cartridge.
The Golden Boy has always been amazingly accurate. Even with my old eyes, I can plink pretty well at 25 yards. Not much further. Hence the addition of a scope.
Welcom to the forum
Got some Hornady 3035 150 gn RN bullets the other day too.
So far I have shot about 100 rounds through the gun. All reloaded ammunition. I've used both cast and jacketed bullets. Tried Trailboss, Varget , IMR3031 and some shotgun/pistol powders.
Trailboss is awesome! Hardly any kick. No recoil pad.
Varget was stout with enough kick to let me know that there was no recoil pad.
Just got the 3031 so I nothing to report.
Accuracy is sketchy so far, however I can still measure my groups using a hand.
Hey Goes Bang,
