    My AR is really beat up and is in need of a serious rebuild and refit so she is in drydock for awhile. Seems I shot most of the chrome out of the barrel. Anyway, I went with something a bit more mundane for my new general purpose rifle.

    Not fancy, mag dumps will be boring, but it will do. The sights suck ass so I will put this one or one like it on there

    Oh, also got a brass bead for the front. Caliber will be .45 Colt. Been meaning to do that one for years.

    /——/ jealous of family and friends down in the Carolinas who can buy, sell and shoot freely. In the People’s Republic of New York it’s extremely difficult to have anything more than a scatter gun.

    I got dies instead. Fun little fun though. Shot up a bunch of cowboy action type loads. Thing is a real nice shooter. May try a hog with it here soon.

    I'm wondering if that's a Marlin 336, not really familiar with the pistol cal. levers other than the Henry rifles. I'm wondering if you have a specific purpose in mind... I'm sure a .45CL out of a long barrel like that would make a nice brush deer rifle... Congrats on your rifle btw!
