Wanted to say thanks to everyone on this site first and foremost for being so knowledgeable about a plethora of areas.I have learned a lot of information and i look forward to learning more as time goes on.
Yesterday on friday, i picked up a firearm after attempting to do a lot of research on the firearm, and not finding a lot of help on the subject. So for the price, i just bit the proverbial bullet, and picked it up. I had a scope sitting at home and a set of brand new Warne high rings that i was saving for something, but not sure so i put them on this. Yes the scope is not the greatest, but for a .22LR it should hold me until i get more saved up and do more research on that section. So far i am not able to get to the range so this will have to be a 2-3 post section, but weather pending, monday will be a trip to my hunting camp with a 75-100 yard range. Well anywho, on to a few pics i snapped tonight.
This is how it sits now, all factory (for now) with a (yes i know) Barska 6-24x scope i had sitting in my safe collecting dust, also sitting with a Caldwell (again had it in the safe) swiveling notched leg bi-pod.
two screws located infront of and behind the magazine take the barrel and assembly out of the stock, and yes the gun is fully free floated.
a pic of the new marlin adjustable trigger, it is a very nice set up.
As you can see, the hex nut/allen key right below the screw (above in pics) is how the weight is adjusted. it is adjustable between 3-5 pounds and there is not too much creep or weight from factory.
marlin standard bent metal extractor pieces.
This is a very strange part i did not notice at first, it is what keeps the barrel and action aligned in the stock to make sure it is not touching anywhere, but it is not fixed to the barrel itself.. pretty interesting to me.
Well that is all for now, sorry for the long winded post but hope the pics kept some of you entertained. more will follow monday if all goes as i hope it does, i have 3-4 different ammo to try in this and i will post pics of that day too!
