Show us your guns!
 
I had a couple requests to bring the forum back - so I thought I'd do it right and purchase a vBulletin license. I'm also looking for a few good mods for the forum...

Anyway I'll start this thread off with my latest purchase, it's a Bushnell Trophy MP red dot which I've mounted to my 1973 Marlin 336. It brings the old deer rifle into the 21st century I think, and besides the buckhorn sights sucked. :D

I've already made a trip to the range and the optic is a great match for the Marlin. It sits at the right height, doesn't screw with the balance, and provides a wide field of view for easy target acquisition. The T-dot is a great reticle, much preferred over a simple red dot, and has made me much more accurate with the old lever gun.

Here's what the T-dot reticle looks like through the scope...

Eh, dunno. Seems like a juxtaposition to me. :D

Thanks for bringing the forum back.

That Marlin looks alright, I wonder what Caliber that is?
Pesonally, Airsoft is illegal in my country, and I am too damn young to own a real gun, so as my toy AK74M (With three round burst and semi automatic) is broken, I now only have a Remmington Pump Action shotgun left. On the box it said "Super rifle", despite the fact it said "Shotgun" on the side of the actual weapon. It deifeintly is a shotgun lol..

.30-30
 
If it is the standard model, it should be chambered in .30-30 WCF.

Never heard of .30-30?! The .30-30 was a rifle cartridge first invented as a new round to fire the smokeless powder, being first fired in the Winchester 1894 rifle, a gun built specially to fire the high-pressure round. It is an infamous rifle cartridge, most common in lever guns.

Strangly .308 Winchester is somewhat uncommon in lever guns. Not unheard of, but somewhat rare.

Since Winchester cheapened most of Browning's ingenius designs such as the '92 and '94 rifles, the Marlin guns were actually suprerior at the time. Treat the 336 well, Bunni.

Well here are a few of mine. Smith & Wesson Model 28 Highway Patrolman (.357 magnum). The two grey ones I had parkarized and then coated with teflon. Very strong finishes. I left one blued.

Hell yes Smith and Wesson.

Everyone drools over the revolvers because of the Model 29 dragging them in, but not many recognize the greatness of their automatic pistols. I do.

Eh, I respect 'em. Unfortunately, the only Smith auto I own is a 4506, and I've just never been able to enjoy it that much. It's just too big. As far as the "greatness" goes, they do what they do well and are very nicely priced. They don't quite have that stylishness and mystique that their Euro counterparts tend to have.

I became a SIG P226 owner recently. I understand (from reading your profile) that you think the 5906 is the P226's equal in most ways - except cost?

I don't own any S&W autos. The few autos I do own are a Glock 19, GLock 26, Browning Buckmark, and a Sig Sauer P245. With the exception of those few autos all the rest are S&W revolvers, Colt revolvers and a Webley Mk VI.

My dad owns a S&W 4516, 4586 and a 4506. He's a big 45acp fan.

I am considering buying 2nd generation S&W Model 39 however. The prcie is right and I like how it feels.
