The Old 45-70

Quote:Oh yeah, I phoned my friend Buck Duane and told him he can take me out of his will for that Ruger of his.



That will surely make old Buck happy. He'll be much more relaxed around you now, and won't feel he has to watch his back as much.

Congrats on the deal, I hope you're very happy with the new toy.

Hopefully the S won't HTF and I pray every day that it won't. It would not be fun.

I'm baaaaack!



As some of you may recall I took my Marlin .444 up moose hunting this year and had a couple of offers to sell it. Well My hunting partner Glenn has been worrying me about it like a hound with an old bone. I found two Marlins for him locally in 45-70 without the crossbolt safety and also a .444 on line. Nope... he wanted mine.

Since I just bought my dream rifle, a Ruger No.1 in 45-70, mentioned earlier, I thought to myself..."Self, why not simplify the ammo cabinet and have one of those Marlin 45-70's and let Glen have the .444?" Not finding a whole lot of cons and a lot of pros from all the other people living in my head, I called my buddy Geoff who still had one of the 45-70's. He said it was in great condition, confirmed it was a straight stock not pistol grip and he named a price and I laughed. He then got down to real dealing and I guess I am the proud owner of a Marlin 1895 pre-cross bolt safety in 45-70 and Glen will get his .444 finally ....oh and I'll get some peace. None of the rifles and money have changed hands yet it may happen next week.

We are all going to bring our lever guns for Moose next fall. Marshall has a .356 win in a 94 Winchester. I will take my N0.1 also <img src='http://www.hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':thumbsup:' />

Again he awakens the dragon. <img src='http://hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/mage.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':mage:' />/>

I have a friend who has a Ruger No.1 action and butt stock in .45-70 but the barrel and fore-stock are Number 3

I asked who made up the parts gun and he said it came from the factory that way.

Has anyone out there heard of this configuration from the factory?
